Can we Do Away with the Hipster Glasses Now?

Now that we have officially hit the Summer of 2016, can we get rid of something that has been around a couple of years now?

I'm talking about the hipster glasses that many news people and people in the news think is really cool. I'm telling you, they are not. FTVLive might not be at the top of the style chart, but we can assure you, the hipster glasses, make you look like a doofus. 

Hipster Doofus. 

Let's look at a couple of FTVLive favorite Anchors and show you what we mean. Here is WCBS Anchor Kristen Johnson, a beautiful person and a great Anchor.

I'll let you decide which looks better. 

How about NBC Anchor Lester Holt. No glasses, he looks suave and debonair:

The hipster glasses were basically started a few years ago by the NBA players that would put on the glasses for post game interviews. They did it as a joke, but soon it caught on and of course TV people want to "be cool" so they all started wearing the glasses. 

FTVLive is calling for an end of the hipster glasses and we hope that you guys will listen. But just in case you don't, here is one more example to prove to you, how these glasses make you look like a doofus.

Here is FTVLive favorite Robin Meade without glasses on:

And here she is with glasses.

Case closed! Let's make the Summer of 2016, hipster doofus free. 

Oh! There is one that can pull off the hipster glasses and still look cute. That is Rory FTVLive's VP of Cuteness. But he's the only one.
