• Conan Compares Fox News Anchors To Porn Stars

     Conan O’Brien, the host of Conan on TBS, thought that comparing Fox News anchors to porn stars was hilarious, but one Fox News host didn’t take it lying down.

    O’Brien did a bit on failed coffee table books last Tuesday and one of faux books he including was titled Fox News Anchor or Porn Star? The cover of the book included a photograph of Happening Now co-anchor Jenna Lee sipping lemonade, leaning on a tree.

    The back cover of the book included portraits of two pornographic actresses alongside a photograph of Outnumbered co-host Sandra Smith.

    Lee  posted a lengthy response to Conan’s joke on  her Facebook page Wednesday morning to issue a lengthy response.

    “Want the truth behind this picture?” she wrote. “It’s from an interview I did right before I got married in 2011…for a food blog,” referring to her food-centric interview with GrubStreet.

    Lee also  addressed the issue on Fox News’ Media Buzz Sunday morning.

    She said she doesn’t believe that Conan owes her an apology for comparing her and other Fox anchors to porn stars and acknowledged that television journalists should not be thin-skinned when it comes to criticism and jokes.

    But “at a certain point,” Lee said, “silence makes you complicit.”

    “ I think my point has been received really well,” she  said. “And a lot of young women – and even some of the men – around the office have commented that they really appreciated my response.”
