Bad presidential debates and bullying about obesity: Chat Room

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

On this week's Chat Room, Chicago Sun-Times' Editor Susanna Negovan and consultant Rochelle Trotter talk bad debates and bullying.

First up the Presidential Debate is all the buzz today. Did one candidate come out the winner, or were they both even?

Susanna thinks Mitt "wiped the floor" with Obama. He was prepared with facts, was very engaged and simply dominated the floor. Rochelle agreed, although a lot of Mitt's facts were in fact WRONG! Additionally it seemed the President wanted to play nice, while Mitt came out fighting.

Susanna thinks Mitt was well rehearsed and simply appeared the clear winner in this debate. While Rochelle thinks the President was dignified in his appearance, she thinks he could have defended himself and his positions better.

Next the women discussed the hot topic of La Crosse TV Anchor Jennifer Livingston blasting a viewer for attacking her weight. Was this really a case of bullying or just bad manners?

Susanna thinks that when a person is in a public position there is always the possibility of comments being made, nice or not. Rochelle agreed, stating that she does not call this "bullying," instead it's just a man with a negative opinion. Being in the media does in fact open you up to comments and the best thing to do is ignore the negative ones, which in this case the TV Anchor did not.

Susanna thinks the TV Anchor actually bullied the writer with her on air response, and he has in fact created a window of opportunity for her to perhaps appear a year from now slimmer, as a spokesperson for some weight loss company. So she is the winner!
