But you doth protest too much about Ms. Webb. You frame the argument as if he personally attacked Ms. Webb and that's not really what he's saying. Ms. Webb may be the exception, but she's not the general rule.

It's not just gaming media that does this, it's mainstream media that does this too or have you failed to notice the increasing amount of attractive women in news media who, generally speaking, don't know squat, but look good on camera.

Increasing? Not sure it's really changed much in recent years.

The never-ending stream of identical blonds on Fox News does amuse me, though. Same haircut, same hair color, same chin line, same tiny nose, same fake blue contacts, etc. I single FN out only because of how identical those blonds are.

Don't care, G4 sucks anyway. I'll never get over their takeover of TechTV.
20 nothing year old bimbo with a nice rack who knows fuck-all about games to bring in the teen boys and old losers
I want to address this comment because it's so off base it actually irked me. First of all Morgan Webb was placed on X-Play after G4 took over TechTV in the hopes her good looks would get the show more ratings (she was under contract). And you're right, she was not a gamer when they put her in that spot. She was a tech geek and she knew her subject matter very well. Go watch some old episodes of The Screen Savers, the show she was originally hired for, and you'll see she is a legitimate geek. She's no Olivia Munn, meaning she wasn't hired for her looks, and she's not brain dead. So yea, she may not be a hardcore gamer, but to call her a "bimbo" is unfair.

G4 works?



It's interesting, and expected, that this was a contract dispute. Sessler likely wanted more money, but I can't imagine G4 has any money, so he outgrew his network. I guess he wants to go into VG media consulting, but that will definitely be more work than hosting anything on G4.

Sessler is not the only reason G4 works. But for me he was the main reason G4 worked. I trust some of the other hosts to give a fair review of products/games but Adam was the best at it. I have no doubt that he was a real gamer. Some of the others I'm not too sure of. I'm curious to see who takes his spot. Whoever he is better be good or I can see the ratings falling off for the over eighteen male demographic.

In protest I am going to the DVR now to stop the recording of X-Play.
