Re: B.C. news anchor criticized for showing cleavage

Someone considers that to be cleavage?  I had to re-read the article to be sure that was the offending outfit.
A colleague in London once received a complaint about a nipple being visible through a blouse during a newscast.  It was very obviously a pleat.  Some people will see what they want to see.

Re: B.C. news anchor criticized for showing cleavage

Ashley Holder, who just joined WGRZ in Buffalo for weekend sports anchor duties as well as reporting, can relate. She mentioned on social media that a guy wrote her on Twitter "and said I need to wear a bigger dress on TV-I wonder if this works for him?" and she included a photo. Ashley added that "Women should wear whatever they feel great and comfortable in!" And she's been getting a lot of support from not only her fellow reporters, but others as well.

I would add, too, that I wish female anchors and reporters would be judged on the work they do, not on how they look. This is journalism, not Fashion Police.
