Storm as experienced TV weatherman sues CBS for sex discrimination
UK Daily Mail ^ | 3/18/2012 | staff

Posted on 03/19/2012 12:54:07 PM PDT by Excuse_My_Bellicosity

An experienced TV weatherman has sued CBS broadcasting for sex and age discrimination claiming his job applications were ignored purely because he isn't a 20-somthing and female.

Hunter, who has been a weatherman for Fox5 in San Diego, sued the broadcasting giant in Los Angeles last week.

However CBS claims Kyle Hunter's complaint is frivolous and based on gross misstatements of fact and say they will vigorously defend themselves in court.

Hunter argues that his gender and age kept him from getting on-air weather jobs at CBS stations KCBS and KCAL despite his meteorology degree and years of experience.

According to the lawsuit, Hunter, who is over the age of 40, is seeking 'unspecified' damages.

He alleges that the CBS stations favour young, attractive women to induce more men to watch their prime-time newscasts.

You got that right, Master of the Obvious. Such a pity that he'll have to start working for a living.

Someday the Libs will wake up to the fact that Discrimination Suits used as a tool of “Social Justice” can backfire on them.

Just about everything favors young, attractive women.

However, later in life the tables turn. Fact of life.

Sr. male.

Duh. You can get a current weather forecast online with one click, any time. Why watch a weather broadcast on local tv unless it's to see breasts and legs?

Another frivolous suit filed by Gloria Allred. As you can see for yourselves, Kyle is a pretty boy ... as pretty as any other weather reader of either sex ...

They should hire the cute young women, and then hire someone heavier like me to tether them to, to keep them from flying away in a storm. I believe that’s where the term “anchor” man originally came from.

Funny stuff.

Ya ever seen a car commercial on the Hispanic channels?

They got women out there in string bikinis and micro skirts, tube tops, bending over the hoods, pole dancing in the beds of pickups etc.

It's just a hoot.

I like the current weather babe on Fox 5 San Diego. Aloha Taylor is a former Miss Hawaii. She is better looking than Kyle Hunter and she has a degree in meteorolgy.

Whether or not he's taken seriously by the legal establishment, his complaint has merit.

Hopefully this is the start of the ‘boomerang’ effect for the msm and their politically correct allies.
