“Mr. Horsey has no idea what it is like to be part of this network. We work hard, get our stories right and are proud of what we do and the success we’ve achieved. We’re experienced journalists and reporters, most of us have been at it a long time. Between us, we’ve worked at all the networks and most prominent newspapers and publications. We’re proud that our “lineup” is “stocked” with some of the sharpest, brightest women in the business.” And follows up with “Our success is not about hair color or skirts. It’s about elbow grease, dedication and sacrificing time with our families and friends. We are fine with that, it goes with the territory.”
