True. That was my first initial reaction. He sounded more misguided that malicious.

What a gem of speech on her part though. Her message about self-worth can't be repeated often enough. What's more, she delivered it with poise and passion.

Good on her

Apparently the dude who sent her the letter still isn't convinced by her speech

Quote:
After the editorial aired Tuesday morning, the station’s website received about 50,000 hits, reported Anne Thompson for “Nightly News,” “almost one for every person in La Crosse.” Schools used the broadcast to talk about bullying, she said. And hundreds of people wrote notes of support on the station’s website and on Facebook:



As the story spread beyond Wisconsin and then internationally, the comments, especially on YouTube, took a rude turn.




Late Tuesday, Krause released a statement re-affirming his original position.

"Given this country’s present epidemic of obesity and the many truly horrible diseases related thereto, and considering Jennifer Livingston’s fortuitous position in the community, I hope she will finally take advantage of a rare and golden opportunity to influence the health and psychological well-being of Coulee Region children by transforming herself for all of her viewers to see over the next year, and, to that end, I would be absolutely pleased to offer Jennifer any advice or support she would be willing to accept." — Kenneth W. Krause

Re: Anti-Bully Month: "Fat" TV Anchor Lashes Out Against Bully on Morning Show

It can be considered as a cyber-bullying, no? Anyways, she somehow took a little too far with that message which was more like a sincere advice to me.

Re: Anti-Bully Month: "Fat" TV Anchor Lashes Out Against Bully on Morning Show

The e-mail didn't seem mean-spirited at all to me. Inappropriate for sure, but the guy seemed concerned for her more than anything.

Bullying is the buzz word of the moment[/KyleRichards] Everyone uses it but nobody really know what it means.

Re: Anti-Bully Month: "Fat" TV Anchor Lashes Out Against Bully on Morning Show

That's not bullying. She has not even addressed the writer's concerns about presenting an unhealthy lifestyle to viewers. Neither did the writer use the word fat which she starts using all the time.

This isn't bullying, the guy's intentions were misguided but good.

A lot of women look like her, they brand themselves as "real" women and they though it was an attack on THEM.

Whether you think it was bullying or not, the guy was being an asshole.

Re: Anti-Bully Month: "Fat" TV Anchor Lashes Out Against Bully on Morning Show

In school we were told bullying was HARD
H - Hurtful
A - Aggressive (could have been a different A word )
R - Repetitive
D - Deliberate

Dunno what others think of that definition.
The repetitive bit is often missed by most people and I think repetition is quite relevant when it comes to bullying.
