Kathi said saying "idiot" just slipped out, but the comparison to urinating to breastfeeding was not a fair comparison. Ken said that urinating and breastfeeding are both natural functions and bodily fluids so the comparison is valid. (Wouldn't listen to Kathi try to refute that). Ken asked if she would breastfeed on the air, and she said no. Kathi added that 99% of mothers who breastfeed are discreet. Ken said in his experience most women are NOT discreet about breastfeeding. Kathi said Ken must not watch her "healthwatch" stories about the benefits of breastfeeding. Ken said he does, and he agrees with them and that women should absolutely breastfeed, just be modest about it.<br><br>
I think Kathi was still mad about the story, as well she should be! She asked people to stop emailing her and to email KEN about this instead! (I'm assuming she got some hatemail, too?)<br><br>
KOMO has gotten hundreds of emails after this occured yesterday.<br><br>
Hopefully they'll have this available online for those who want to view the discussion. If not, hopefully my description will suffice!
I started the same thread on the WA/OR tribal area! :LOL Great minds think alike <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> I still think Ken Schram needs some sense knocked into him. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: I rarely watch TV and I turned it on just to see if they talked about it right as it came on!
On a related note, is there an email address for the station? I emailed the idiot, and heard that emails to the brilliant anchor were being bounced back, but emails to the station news director is where you will get the most bang for your buck.
