Fox's Kilmeade On How Fox Hires Female Hosts: "We Go Into The Victoria's Secret Catalogue And We Said, 'Can Any Of These People Talk?'"
During his Fox News Radio program today, Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade remarked that Fox hires female hosts by looking at "the Victoria's Secret catalogue" and asking, "Can any of these people talk?" Kilmeade's comment came in response to a caller who complimented his guest, Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Alisyn Camerota, and the person who hired "all the women of Fox."
Listen to Kilmeade's remark from today's Kilmeade & Friends:
As Media Matters has documented , Fox News has a history of sexism on-air and behind the scenes. Kilmeade himself has frequently offered sexist commentary during  his other hosting duties on Fox News' Fox & Friends. When Kilmeade was criticized for one such remark in June , he defended himself  by claiming that people don't understand he was just having fun.
Fox News chief Roger Ailes has previously said that he's considered whether a woman is "attractive" enough for on-air work.
From the November 16 edition of Fox News Radio's Kilmeade & Friends:
CALLER: Well, you and all the women of Fox, I don't know who was the scout that got you guys, but they -- they rock.
ALISYN CAMEROTA: It was Brian. But thank you very much, that's very sweet.
KILMEADE: It was -- it was, it was actually, we go into the Victoria's Secret catalogue and we said, "Can any of these people talk?"
CAMEROTA: You're so --
KILMEADE: And they all could, and they all went to college.
CAMEROTA: You're so crazy, Brian.
KILMEADE: I am not crazy.
