Default Re: [Mass Effect] Fox News Is Shocked

A person who writes a self help book is totally at the mercy of peoples' opinion and should be aware of that. While it's nice to see her press agent motivate her into actually playing the game, that doesn't detract from her acting like a prat on national TV. When she tried to subdue Keighley by calling him 'darlin', I think she spolied whatever potential credibility she was attempting to foster. That sort of action, I believe, is far more indicative of her personality than what she said about the game. If Keighley was a woman and she were a man, there would be cries of 'sexist behaviour' from either side of the political belief system.

I don't know if this has already been brought up earlier (and I don't have nearly enough interest in the debate that seems to have raged for the last several pages to actually read the entire thing), but apparently the video they used in the segment was ripped from IGN's site without permission (yes, they're both owned by Fox, but the IGN people seemed to think that they still weren't allowed to do that). Oh, and just to add insult to injury they cropped out the IGN watermark so they didn't have to attribute it. Pretty shoddy reporting all around.
