To me, this seemed more like a Saturday Night Live sketch than a serious story. I have a hard time digging up any sympathy for the fat, ignorant blond who thought all she needed was a college degree and life would be a neverending party thereafter, or the underachieving college dropout who apparently still owns a house. Every character in the clip came across as a total airhead to me - including Geraldo and his flunkie (who seems more concerned about his physical appearance than the quality or veracity of his reporting).

I think you are being a little too hard on those folks, and the milllions like them across the world. BTW. That reporter looked maaaaaarvelous. And it is better to look good than to feel good.
