      @anonymous: Relax Mr. Peterson, no need to be so "disturbed" over my comments about Ms. Carlson. After I quit laughing, I wondered why you were so upset. Carlson is a tease and knows exactly what she is doing with her dress hikes on the days she does make an appearance. My gosh she looks at herself in the monitor so much, when the other two fellows are talking, she must know what's showing and what isn't. I expressed an opinion which may have a been a bit more colorful than you like but accurate from my vantage point. Ms. Carlson would have to be living under a rock not to know about all those video links on the internet "exposing" herself to the public. Does she do anything about it to defuse this image of herself? Not from where I am sitting. Have a good day and relax a bit, there are more pressing issues over which we can disagree. Good day.

      If Gretchen Carlson's new show has her behind a desk it probably won't last 2 weeks. Her draw to the male viewership, which has been the largest segment of the Fox & Friends viewership, I believe, is her dresses hiked half way up to her butt and her panty shots. Her commentary is and has been of no interest to most I would venture.

      @anonymous: Gretchen, is that you posting about yourself again?

      Gretchen rarely works 5 days straight. She is off more than all the other hosts combined. Why do they keep her? She is not funny, loves to stare at herself in the monitor and makes snide comments to the other guys.

      Allison should be brought on for the weekday show and let Gretchen fill in. Obviously she doesn't like working.

      @anonymous: Clarification. I was just dittoing Mr. H. Forrest's comment about Gretchen Carlson, not trying to steal his comment. He sums up my opinion of Ms.Carlson better than I could.

      @anonymous: Gretchen Carlson would have to be dumber than a french fry not to know of all the interntet clips and links out there of her showing her panties to those watching the show. She's co-anchor of a news show for goodness sakes. So why not attempt some modesty and win viewers with her talent more so than sex ? I'm not naïve, I realize looks are important if you're on the TV, but you can be good at what you do , attractive looking as well, without displaying your private area on somewhat of a regular basis. Surely Carlson's mother taught her better and how to be a "lady." I admit that I look at her legs too and don't hide my face from her panty displays. That is on the days she shows up for work, which seem to be fewer and fewer. However, my hypocracy goes only so far. Surely of all the talent Fox has at its disposal they could find another attractive blond, or even a brunette or redhead, if they can find one or two at Fox. A lady who would gladly show up for work on Fox & Friends at $400,000 per year, not take off work seemingly every 3 or 4 days, be modest, and equal to, or more talented than Ms. Carlson. Believe it or not I assume that most people, including men, watch Fox & Friends for it's content more so than just to get a peek up Gretchen's dress. And surely not the Miss America image for which that organization hopes from it's former winners.

      Forgive my being a bit immodest myself, but let's face it, Gretchen Carlson is a highly paid prick teaser. She knows it, Fox knows it and anyone with an IQ over 100 knows it.

      @anonymous: Agree. She is best suited for hiking her dress up half to her butt and opening her legs so we can see her panties. She is Fox's tease and that's even getting old. Wonder how her husband feels about his wife exposing herself to millions of male viewers men on a fairly regulasr basis.

      @anonymous: Wow, this comment is so disturbing on so many different levels. It's quite obvious the kind of jerk that wrote this. Scary that this type of mentality exists in our society. Absolutely disgusting...

      They need to get someone to replace her. She takes more days off then all the other men combined. Why don't they get someone who appretiates having a great job like she does.

      Gretchen, I think you are tanning or spray tanning to much. You look sooo dark on TV kinda like Snooki. You are pretty and "to dark" is not becoming. Let it fade some. Love the show---Alice

      What patience this am with the arrogance of the lady being interviewed for the new book about Moms. I hope all the advice she gave on parenting she taught her kids humility while they were having their dinner table conversations. You do a great job Gretchen stay true to your convictions.

      How can anyone take Gretchen Carlson serious? I am conservative and she and I probably share much of the same social and economic philosophies. However, when she does show up for the show, which seems to be less and less, she wears more make up than Cleopatra and appears to bleach her hair more than Lady Ga Ga. On any given day millions of people know what color her panties are since she apparently has trouble keeping her legs together. Maybe it's accidental, maybe not. There are video clips after video clips devoted to nothing but seeing up her skirt and all the way. If we don't get the color of her panties one day we at least get to see her dress hiked halfway up to her hips. Don't get me wrong, I Iike pretty legs like the next guy, and Carlson is sexy, in kind of a high-end fifth avenue hooker way. However, is this really the image she wants to encourage and portray ? My being a conservative, if this is the image she desires, let her move over to MSNBC and display her "equipment" there.

      Ms. Carlson is married with two small children if I'm not mistaken. Does her husband like the fact that millions of men see up his wife's dress on a regular basis? He certainly has to be aware of his wife's somewhat regular panty display on Fox and Friends. How is this mother of two going to feel one day when one of her children comes home from school crying because another student made fun of his mother's short dresses. Even worse wisecracking about all the video clips on the Internet of his mother's panties. And not just one or two clips of, the land down under , but actually viewing a compilation, now on the Internet, of nothing but clips of Gretchen Carlson's private area. At the rate at which Ms. Carlson exposes her panties, like Michael Jordan did with Nike, she ought to sign an endorsement deal with Victoria's Secret and get paid for what she's already doing free of charge advertising her panties so much. My goodness, the woman has shot more 'squirrels' than Daniel Boone !

      Now, if I were to go out on a limb, and maybe not too far, I might go as far as to say Ms. Carlson's exposing her private area somewhat regularly, is more intentional than not. Furthermore, leading me, and probably others, to speculate that she is somewhat of a highly paid exhibitionist keeping the male viewership up,among other things.

      Certainly with her high IQ and reputed academic intelligence Gretchen Carlson must know these images of her are all over the Internet. You would think as a professional female on a major network that the last thing she would want to be portrayed as is some platinum blond bimbo, with nice thighs, firing panty shots at the world. That image as opposed to one of a respected newsperson or newsshow co-anchor. I guess for some of the more sensitive viewers they can take some comfort in the fact that Ms. Carlson does in fact wear panties . . . at least for now. Stay tuned.

      Gretchen normally u do a great job but sure wish you had stifled yourself while the judge was querying casey anthony about whether she wished to testify, your voiceover was unnecessary, irritating and kept us from hearing the dialog clearly

      Gretch is so hot & sexy,

      She's a 44 yr old mother w/2 young children and she looks better than many women half her age!

      She sure knows how to dress for success.

      Gretchen must be the reason for all the rag bag dresses the gals are wearing. There seems to be 5 or 6 colors-red-pink-aqua-and maybe a few others. Please give her a raise or better yet get someone with smarts and clothes like E.D. Hill or Megyn Kelly. You can get it all.Don't know who she knows but it must be someone near the top. We only watch once in a while now, used to be every day.
