Reporter Claims Harassment, Backs Off

This Jan. 27, 2009, file photo shows TV Azteca reporter Ines Sainz, left, after measuring the bicep of  Arizona  Cardinals  wide receiver Steve Breaston, right, during the team’s media day for Super Bowl XLIII, in Tampa, Fla. Sainz says on her Twitter account she felt “very uncomfortable!” at a Jets practice Saturday where a coach appeared to throw footballs in her direction and players called out to her in the locker room. Story here. (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin, File)

Question: Are beautiful, women sportscasters, like former Miss Spain Ines Sainz who’s involved in the harassment flap above, generatlly hired for their sex appeal, or gender balance, or do they bring quality reporting to broacasts?
