Gretchen Carlson Uses Image Booster For Derek Jeter To Boost Hubby’s Paycheck

December 3, 2009

U.S. (ChattahBox) – Fox & Friends journalist Gretchen Carlson gave a rather one-sided interview and doe-eyed love fest to Derek Jeter this week. What she failed to mention was that the athlete employed her husband as his agent.

Full of platitudes such as “the last pure athlete in Major League Baseball”, and “Do you have any flaws, like, do you make your bed in the morning?'”, the interview was almost painfully positive, completely ignoring the current rumors about his ties to Tiger Wood’s alleged mistress, Rachel Uchitel, which are likely his reason for going on the show in the first place.

But it was not the content of the show that was shocking. It was the fact that Carlson failed to mention her own financial interest in the athletes image

Carlson’s husband is Jeter’s agent, and it is a point that she failed to mention to viewers when she was conducting the boot-licking love fest that was the Fox & Friends interview.

Is this news earth shattering? Not really. It is just another example of FOX’s habit of bending the lines of ethics to make a profit, a habit formed by other media sources as well.

    I watched the interview and I was embarrassed by her questions. She was giggly like a teenager and was what I considered to be unprofessional. It was a horrible interview! As I watched it, I wondered why she would be the one conducting the interview since one of the other co-hosts (Brian Kilmeade) usually covers the sports segments and she is usually oblivious to anything sports related. I guess you explained it.
