Olivia Munn: Too Hot for TV, Says Jezebel
By Anne Artley, fearless intern [ Thu Jul 8 2010 11:17 AM ]
Feminist blog Jezebel is under fire for a post about Olivia Munn, the new contributor to "The Daily Show." The blog blasted Munn, host of "Attack of the Show," for being hired for the wrong reasons and "The Daily Show" for being sexist and excluding women. Slate magazine reporter Emily Gould responded with her article "Outrage World," which, in turn, called Jezebel blogger Irin Carmon's criticism "petty jealousy." Gould also accused the reporter of using quotes from off-the record conversations with women who had been denied jobs or fired from "The Daily Show." Carmon used Munn's former appearances in Maxim and Playboy, and a clip of her eating suggestive-looking food on her show as evidence that she had been hired more for her sex appeal than brain cells.
