Study Shows That Men Are Distracted By Sexy News Anchors

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueMedia Minute

men dont listen to sexy news anchors

Are male readers actually reading any of this? Or are you just staring at the photo??? LOLz.

According to a new study, even though sexy female news anchors may boost ratings, males are less likely to retain much actual news from them, because they get distracted.

Indiana University scholars have found that “men’s cognitive mechanisms favored visual over verbal processing.”

Ha! That's ONE way of saying "men get distracted by sexy women."

Studies were done with female anchors dressed in a desexualized manner, as well as a sexualized manner, and researchers found that men remembered “significantly more information watching the unsexualized anchor deliver news than her sexualized version.”

Guess guys should start keeping their eyes shut when Megyn Kelly is reporting the news…

    LMAO not shocked. I am distracted by beauty but I totally listen to what they are saying too…mostly. ;p



  2. 2

    THAT IS NOT MEGYN KELLY, IDIOT.



  3. 3

    It took a study to realize guys are distracted by tits. Wow. We sure can waste money in this country.



  4. 4

    Study shows that men are shallow.



  5. 5

    That is nit megyn Kelly, megyn Kelly is hillbilly looking, with a crappy nose job and botox + fillers. Hahhahhahaha



  6. 6

    Wow, that study must have been done by some geniuses. Never in a million years would any of the rest of the world not have guessed that men are distracted by boobs and a pretty face.



  7. 7

    they seriously had to do a study to figure that out?



  8. 8

    If men are shallow, they have not yet been inspired,
    to become more than he is.



  9. 9

    Doesn't surprise me. It also wouldn't surprise me if a study to see if men get distracted if the news anchor looks like a creature yielded the same result.



  10. 10

    THAT EXPLAINS WHY MOST NETWORKS HAVE FUGLY ASS DUDES AS ANCHORS. LARRY KING, CAN WE SAY MORE??? LOLZ.



  11. 11

    Her face is scary..



  12. 12

    What group of assholes needed to have a study for this. Is this yet another attempt for people to be masters of the obvious? Jesus Christ.

    And, no Maria, regardless of the pair of tits on the page, we always skim what you write. Most of it's unbearable. As far as the distraction. What's being being looked at is what she'll look like with her clothes off or what her fuck face is like. That's all processed in nanaseconds, every minute or so, until the segment is finished.

    Next.



  13. 13

    No sh!t. You're a genius, Mario.



  14. 14

    That's not Megyn Kelly. It's Kimberly Guilfoyle who is a Fox news contributor and not an anchor. Again Perez shows his utter ignorance.



  15. 15

    typical IU. no shit sherlocks.



  16. 16

    so ya.. Rachel Maddow is a gift from god then



  17. 17

    Megyn Kelly is several months pregnant and wearing maternity clothes. But, ah, whatever…



  18. 18

    That Robin Meade. Watch her every morning. Do I win a prize?



  19. 19

    That is Kimberly Guilfoyle, not Robin Meade…although they do look alike.



  20. 20

    Re: sassyk – It's not Robin Meade, it's Kimberly Guilfoyle of Fox News. Used to be married to SF Mayor Gavin Newsom.



  21. 21

    I have just one thing to say to this - DUH!!!! Ya know, i may not live in America, but i get pissed off when i see that scientists and many other people waste precious money in this tough economic times taking surveys and conducting studies that are very obvious to everyone. Thats the American dream i guess, get paid as much as possible for doing as little as possible.



  22. 22

    Re: tallchick – Like you said, you don't live in America. So shut the fuck up.



  23. 23

    So we needed a study to prove what we already know…men are shallow slaves to their own sex drive?? I swear to God…my chihuahua has more self control than some of these pathetic men that roam the streets. I swear, I wish I was a lesbian most times.



  24. 24

    Too bad the girl in this pic is not sexy. Obviously has had WAY too much plastic surgery



  25. 25

    Re: adg100 – sleazy



  26. 26

    how about we get some guys with thongs on and lots of oiled up muscles to do the news?



  27. 27

    WHY DO PEOPLE THINK MEGY KELLY IS HOT? SHE IS MANLY LOOKING AND NOT HOT AT ALL. SHE GOT BALLED BY BRIT HUME, THAT TELLS YOU ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW



  28. 28

    Perez really didn't say that this was Megyn Kelly in the photo, but yes it is Kimberly G. Megyn Kelly seems like such a bitch, she just LOOKS like she's unhappy. Kimberly G. And Robin Meade are cute. My hubby loooooooooves him some Robin, lol.



  29. 29

    is it just me or is her face about 6 shades lighter than the rest of ? way too much war paint …



  30. 30

    Diana Fakhoury is the most beautiful anchor EVER! She's on MTV lebanon. Seriously guys!



  31. 31

    Yes, ShortOnBrains, listen up here…working for the least amount of effort, for the greatest return, is the American Dream!

    Pick one: For 8 hours a day, do you want to do roofing with hot tar, in the summer construction trade, or do you want to take a few computer classes, and then work in an air conditioned office, click the keyboard on the computer, for 8X the amount of the hard labor job?

    We have enough idiots now, that want to change the American Dream to: "Do Nothing and We'll Pay You Enough to Get By On Foodstamps and Become a Nation of Beggars, Just Like the European Liberation Program."

    As PerezSux54 said, you don't live in America, so sit down and be quiet. You're no friend to America, so you're our enemy.

    Yes, Diana Fakhoury is the most beautiful woman…breathtakingly lovely.
    She puts most Hollywood actresses to shame.

    Re: tallchick

    Despite the fact Americans work more hours a year than most industrialized countries. LAZY US.



  35. 35

    Am I the only one who finds this woman really ugly?



  36. 36

    That is a picture of Kimberly Guilfoyle and she IS an anchor AND show host for FOX news, despite some of these comments. She is gorgeous in person, the pictures don't do her justice. =)



  37. 37

    They always make the wrong choice.

    this is retarded…and who would get distracted by this fug face



  41. 41

    Ummm Moron, that's not Megyn. Megyn has blond hair. All you had to do is google Megyn and see they look totally different.



  42. 42

    Re: PerezSux54 – Actually Tallchick has a point there, don't be in denial. I live in America and even I think obvious research is a waste of time and money. That's something we all know, most straight men like plastic looking women. So you stfu.



  43. 43

    Re: luvs2tango – No, most hard working Americans, work their asses off for little money. To rich people who have had everything but their asses handed to them… yeah little work, a lot of pay. Must be nice you have the understanding of only materialistic things, you obviously don't know how hard a lot of people work in this country.
    I'd rather work my butt off and get by decently, than have huge paychecks I really don't deserve. Maybe I'm one of the few honest people in this country, but I'd like to have some self respect in my job.



  44. 44

    Re: luvs2tango – How the hell is she an enemy to this country? What she said is true! I live here, fuck… I'm even in the military… probably a lot more than you do for this country. I don't find her a threat what so ever for how she feels… many countries laugh at us because of how pitty and whiny we all are, when really… we have it good and WASTE our money on stupid crap!



  45. 45

    lol is the chick in that picture supposed to be sexy?? cuz it looks like she was hit with the fug stick. :-\



  46. 46

    The chick in the picture looks like a dude dressed as a woman.



  47. 47

    she looks like a bass.



  48. 48

    DUH. That is all.

    There is no way in hell that that is NOT a tranny.
