Business news anchor or adult film star?

According to Radar magazine, I know Fox Business better than Rupert Murdoch himself.

That's because I scored an 8/10 on its "Fox Business Anchor or Porn Star?" quiz.

Now, the attractiveness of cable news anchors is no secret; neither is its influence on hiring decisions.

You can view pictures and descriptions of the anchorwomen on, where the reviewer says he watches the channel on mute. Some of their advice ("Always take your receipt") and backgrounds (reporter for Lifetime Television) is slightly hair-raising. However, one is a former Goldman analyst and CNBC correspondent and another worked for CNN.

Are Rupert's cronies better-looking (or less qualified, or both) than their counterparts at CNBC or MSNBC?

Or, are they unfairly targeted because Murdoch makes waves?
