One of my favorite newsbabes has to be Linda Vester on the FOX News Channel. She is delicious in every way. But the format of her program, Dayside with Linda Vester, is really annoying. I feel bad for the people in the audience because, if you look at them very carefully, you can see where they are stamped with the words STUDIO PROPERTY. PLEASE RETURN TO STOREROOM WHEN FINISHED. I realize that if Vester were to ask them any questions besides the "yes or no" variety, it might cut into her time, but then why have them there at all? I really do cringe when I see her poll the audience because there's no possible way that she's going to be substantially dissented from. And it's such a bunch of propwerk that you have to wonder why they even bother.
Linda, please just stick to the interviews (without the applause or working the room). Oh, and wear more tight sweaters.
God love you.
