Default Who you calling ugly?

From Yglesias:

Coming Soon to Television News: Ugly People
ABC News is in the process of massive staff cutbacks that’s going to entail efficiency-seeking in terms of looking to have reporters who can do their own video shooting and presenting. According to industry consultant Steve Safran, that means more ugly people on camera:

“The economics of news simply don’t support high salaries anymore,” he says.

“This changes the paradigm of desirability from hiring someone who’s good-looking and can read to someone who’s well-rounded and can present.

“TV is always hiring good-looking people,” he adds, “but you’ll need more skills than that.”

Basically it’ll all be BHTV…
