Happy Hour News Briefs
You guys, I think we have another nominee for the much-coveted Golden Schlafly award! Let’s give it up for
literary polemicist Andrea Tantaros, who not only decided to write an anti-feminism book, but she hired a dude to ghost write it for her!
A New York federal judge has decided to lift the veil from a case captioned as [Under Seal] v. [Under Seal]. It turns out that Michael Krechmer is suing former Fox News personality Andrea Tantaros for allegedly breaching an agreement pertaining to his ghostwriting services on her book Tied Up in Knots.
Here’s how the book is described on Amazon:
“Fifty years after Betty Friedan unveiled The Feminine Mystique, relations between men and women in America have never been more dysfunctional. If women are more liberated than ever before, why aren’t they happier? In this shocking, funny, and bluntly honest tour of today’s gender discontents, Andrea Tantaros, one of Fox News’ most popular and outspoken stars, exposes how the rightful feminist pursuit of equality went too far, and how the unintended pitfalls of that power trade have made women (and men!) miserable.”
Let’s not lose sight of the fact that Tantaros is suing Fox News Channel for sexual harassment and sexual discrimination, so writing an anti-feminism book is just the kind of disconnect we expect to find from her.
In the meanwhile, going through the MPS archives for great Tantaros moments, I think I have selected the what is probably the zenith/nadir of her career: “Anyone with a functioning brain makes sure they look good in a bikini.”
So Andrea Tantaros, you are officially in the running for the Golden Schlafly Award.
