BEING OVERWEIGHT AND THE NETWORK NEWS

Has anyone else noticed this? Whenever the network news uses footage for a story on overwight
people-they don't get their footage outside an office building. We don't see footage of weighty
folks in suits and nice dresses. No, we see footage of lumpy people in shorts, ill-fitting slacks, too
short tops, and bellies hanging over belts.

Yes, I know dressing it up doesn't make the problem go away. (I'm currently down about 92
pounds over the last two years.) The impression you get is of a bunch of losers.

I never thought about that but you are right. But, then again, that's the media for you. Slanted. :-) ---Robbie
