Your point being, Stanley?

About a year or so ago, I found myself having to defend conservative blogger Kathy Shaidle against an unwarranted attack by the Toronto Star's Antonia Zerbisias. Today, the NYT's Alessandra Stanley writes a column about the departure of Nancy Grace from Court TV and her replacement, with these words referring to the trial of Phil Spector:

It may very likely remain preposterous: Court TV has announced it has hired Star Jones Reynolds, formerly of “The View” — whose tabloid wedding extravagances and Sisyphean weight struggles long ago eclipsed her background as a prosecutor — to be the host of a daytime talk show.
I don't like Reynolds any more than Grace. But since when did one's weight bear on his or her ability to report on the court cases of the day -- or on anything, for that matter?

The war against women is the war against men also. Disagreeing with one's opinion is one thing. Making it personal is another and I won't stand for it.
