Shackled Women of AM

American Morning, why must you shackle your women, Kiran Chetry, Alina Cho, Vanessa de la Cruz, and Sunny Hostin? Such beautiful and brainy talent are merely suffocated in a patriarchal setting. As it is, kindly father figure, John Roberts, tends to rule the roost while the lovely Kiran plays the role of his pretty, perceptive TV wife giving him a bit too much deference. Alina, Vanessa, and Sunny have their particular roles but they all must pay tribute to their gray-maned elder. This setup seems a bit outdated in this progressive age in the news sphere.

Add Alina, Vanessa, Sunny, or CNN correspondent Jennifer Eccleston as a third co-host. Instead of the current insular marital-like duo, create a trio of two girls and a boy. Janelle, it would add a fun, sexy, and spontaneous dynamic among the co-hosts and with your intended audience. No need to cede the ratings race to Fox & Friends: you’ve got the talent but F&F has the superior format for now.

AM women, let us hear you roar!

    Although your article concerning the roles of the various cast members of ‘American Morning’, was well written and expressed a sentiment upon that which I readily agree, I must confess to experiencing a bit of a “letdown”, both emotional and psychological, after initially viewing the article’s title, “Shackled Lovelies”.

    Oh well….in the words of P.T. Barnum: “This way to the EGRESS.”
