And Where Can We Purchase This 'Naughty News Nymphs?'

Don Farmer, Naples Daily News:

In Los Angeles, where all trends begin, hot bodies and hard bodies are scampering all over TV newscasts. That's after they display their pointedly nonjournalistic assets in racy men's magazines and steamy Web sites.

It's a multimedia circus: Sexy anchor chicks, pouting through the TV news, then preening in "Skin World."

At news time, the anchor gal reads scripts written by plainer Janes behind the scenes.

Later, the TV temptress bursts from the pages of "Naughty News Nymphs," her hair and her spaghetti straps down, so to speak.

Of course, we're sending Don an email to follow up on this, in the name journalistic integrity.
