You know what they say: Voxers gonna Vox!

What’s got The Smartest Thinkers™ all bent out of shape today? Oh, you know. Just that horrible, sexist Fox News Channel:

No way! How could Fox News be so horrible and sexist?

( function() {

More from Vox:

“I’m not gonna condone it, but I will tell you nothing was disrespectful there,” Eric Bolling begins, “She may not have wanted it, but I find it very hard to believe there was verbal harassment going on. Am I wrong?”

Yes, Eric. You are wrong. To knowingly say things to a woman on the street and assert your dominance is, in fact, harassment. But that’s not even the offensive part of this clip.

Bob Beckel then adds, “She got one hundred cat calls, let me add one hundred and one. Damn, baby, you’re a piece of woman.” He later adds, “You should wear a jacket,” apparently blaming her for the harassment.

Hold up: Can we see that last part again?

Bob. Beckel. Yes, that Bob Beckel.

Sounds like an update is in order, no?

There’s a moral to this story:

Words to live by.
