Modern Media /Modern Minds

Well the brew ha ha about Rev Jones and his cancelled Koran cook out is over but a point made in that thread was how the news media does sensationalize and thereby reward publicity hounds like Jones.
I have to wonder why we as a society are so not only accepting of but desirous of this cheap yellow journalism. We encouraged the news media to give Jones what he wanted. We watched as an irresponsible Jet Blue Flight Attendant Guy became some sort of cult hero. Now we have given Ms. Inez Sainz the world wide attention she so desired. Ms Sainz who gave herself the title of Mexico's Hottest Reporter strolled into a locker room full of pro football players wearing skin tight jeans , a pushup bra , shirt provocatively open and what are commonly reffered to as FM heels. She then cried foul at the attention she received making her an overnight sensation. Boost her ratings in Mexico ? Better paying job in another country? One thing is for sure , Ms Sainz used her sexuallity and media sensationalism to get what she wanted.
To the NFL and Jets management - tell Ms Sainz you're sorry for any innappropriate comments that may have happenned and that you feel for her own well being she will no longer be allowed in the locker room.
To us as a society- why do we waste precious time on nonsense like this or Lady GaGa's meatdress?
To the members of our forum- should female reporters be allowed in men's locker rooms. How would you feel about male reporters and camera crew in the locker room of your daughter's college softball team?
To Ms. Sainz - this is one of the things your story brought to mind...

I do have to agree that the whole thing about sending female reporters into the locker room is silly whether they are hot or not. Actually, it is a bit silly to bring cameras into the locker room anyway. When and why did this tradition of interviewing guys who are walking out of a shower come about? How about an interview at the urinal?

If we started interviewing female athletes coming out of the shower, we would probably see how inappropriate the whole thing is, regardless of the sex of the interviewer, though Bob Costas in the locker room of the U.S. women's Volleyball team probably would drive the point home.

While I'm a sports fan, I am only interested in what goes on during the game. I couldn't care less what any athlete has to say, so locker room interviews have no interest for me. I don't care who goes in, what they say, what they're wearing, etc.

For me, it's kind of silly for any reporter to be in a locker room.

For the record, Sainz wasn't the one who made a big deal of it:

Ines Sainz (PICTURES): What Happened to Reporter Inside NY Jets Locker Room? - Crimesider - CBS News

QuoteQuote:
"In my opinion, I never felt I was attacked," the Mexican sportscaster told Spanish-language program DeporTV on Monday. "I went to the locker room and started to talk about commentary and sports. Another reporter approached me to say he was sorry these things were happening...and that evidently people were making fun of me."

Prior to her presence in the locker room - where players called out to the TV Azteca reporter - footballs were thrown in her direction by a Jets coach during practice.

She told TV Azteca that though she was embarrassed, she didn't take it to heart and didn't realize it was going to become such a big deal, according to CNN.

"It was definitely a joking tone, very amicable," Sainz said in an interview with a colleague. "I wasn't offended."

You don't really believe that do you?
I find it odd that in the interview link you posted she reffers to the colleague who "made a big deal " of it as he but in other interviews she speaks of a female colleague.
Ms. Sainz dropped by Fox news to give this interview in which she states that she is not looking for attention. Of course not , it's blatantly obvious that she isn't looking for attention as anyone can tell from the ultra cleavage blouse she wore to the interview.http://msn.foxsports.com/video/NFL?vid=8d7ca640-b0c2-4317-be65-db46c96a8802
Lets face it this chica is going to ride the publicity train as far as it will take her.

You haven't watched Univision or other Latin American channels. Cleavage is the national pastime in Spanish speaking newscasts.

Fox as a network shouldn't be making an issue on what women sports writers wear, just look at their female newscasters....

I would find it hilarious if this video was remixed to Rammstein's 'Te Quiero Puta!'.

Aye. It really bugs me when you here reporters say things like "*Event X* is causing quite a stir!" when they're the ones with the damn spoon.

My first wife was Cuban. Her clothes allways fit "perfectly" too but a little classier than Inez.
The woman ran up $20,000.00 on credit cards for clothes , shoes , accessories and take out food the first year we were married. She recognized , enjoyed and used the attention her appearance got her just like Inez.
In hindsight even I enjoyed watching heads turn when we walked into a room.
Inez Sainz is using American "political correctness" and a sensationalist news media to further her career.

What you essentially said is that if women dress in a way that emphasizes their sexuality, they're asking for trouble.

i.e., women must dress a certain way or they deserve what's coming to them.

Ms. Sainz wasn't asking for trouble , she was asking for attention. She didn't get what she deserved , she got what she asked for.
If a guy wears a speedo to work he is going to get some sort of attention too.
Ms. Sainz most assuredly "dresses for success" in her endevours.
Finally , yes there is such a thing as situationally appropriate attire

I didn't hear that Ms. Sainz was wearing a bikini. Now I agree with you. That really was inappropriate.

Glad to hear you have the final word on what's situationally appropriate.
