Ok, I admit, trying to find a big ego in TV news is like trying to find grass on a golf course, they're everywhere.
But, sometimes, that one person steps up and shows that their ego is big enough that it could apply for statehood.
Now look, we could have easily gone with Chris Cuomo, Brian Stelter or Fareed Zakaria at CNN as the biggest ego. We could have picked Jim "The American Bald Ego) Cantoree at The Weather Channel. In local news, it could have been Chris Hurst, Fred D'Ambrosi, Bill Pohovey or a number of other Anchors and Reporters.
But in the end we picked someone from Fox News.
No, not Geraldo, Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity for Megyn Kelly.
Nope the person we picked was Fox News Anchor Harris Faulkner.
In a $5 million federal lawsuit (seems a bit excessive), Faulkner says she suffered “emotional damage’’ after the company gave her name to a character in its popular Littlest Pet Shop toy line.
Hasbro’s Harris Faulkner is a tiny tan-and-white hamster with blue eyes and a butterfly perched on its head.
“Hasbro’s portrayal of Faulkner as a rodent is demeaning and insulting,” the anchor of “Fox Report Weekend” says in her suit.
“In addition to its prominent and unauthorized use of Faulkner’s name, elements of the Harris Faulkner Hamster Doll also bear a physical resemblance to Faulkner’s traditional professional appearance, in particular tone of its complexion, the shape of its eyes, and the design of its eye makeup,” the papers allege.
Are you kidding me! It's a freaking toy!!!!
The company has since pulled the little toy off the market.
