WTIC the Fox affiliate in Connecticut has told viewers they are sorry for b-roll of female breasts in a story on a "Women's Day" event being held in the state Capitol.
After catching a bunch of flack for the story (which they ran twice by the way) the station sent out this Tweet:
After the Tweet, Fox CT again released a statement of apology, this time promising to "implement procedures to keep this from happening in the future."
The Permanent Commission on the Status of Women, which organizes the annual Women's Day to honor the accomplishments of local women, released its own statement calling Fox's story an insult "to women everywhere who are tired of being objectified."
The statement from commission executive director Teresa Younger goes on to invite Fox execs "to ask about our sexual harassment awareness and prevention trainings."
Ouch! We're guessing that the station will not make this mistake again. At least oustide of the ratings book.
Here's the video of the story
