Stuart Varney, a host on Fox Business, thinks the absence of women in boardrooms has more to do with our hysterical, uterine-controlled brains than with discrimination. In discussion with Scottie Hughes of the Tea Party News Network, the host asked if companies should feel pressure to hire more women. Read More
Guess what?! A middle-aged white man said something stupid on Fox News! Yesterday, John Stossel of Fox Business News complained about ObamaCare, claiming that the Act’s insistence that health insurance companies not discriminate against women based on gender is unfair to him and his wallet.

Apparently Fox CT thought that International Women’s Day could be summarized simply through shots of a women’s breasts. Way to go, Fox. Read More
