TV 1ST??

seen this on Fox anchors and on CNN a contributer

But have never seen this on TV during a news broadcast

They were broadcasting with their ashes clearly visible ?

I am A non practicing Catholic so ashes aren't new

But the I start thinking is this a personal choice to go on air with them or the network .to once again to appeal to its base?
So I do a Google search on ashes by (ashes on msnbc tv host)

I find only Fox pops up in the search a oped.. here is 1

http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2018/...worldwide.html

So were the ashes were to appeal to the Base or display ones faith

I was unable to see if past ash Wednesday brodcast included Hosts with ashes ... So was it planned display to appeal to its Base viewers as was the story linked above or was it a choice by the host to show here faith? ( I saw no men with ashes)

For me it was a PR stunt on both networks I saw it on...

I clearly remember other Ash Wednesday's when the hosts still have their ashes visable.

Exactly. Would you care if a female Muslim reporter was wearing a burka on TV? Nope.

There's no rule that says that religious people, not even Christians, have to hide their Christianity at work. God Almighty, let's get all worked up because Catholic newscasters are displaying their faith at work.

No outrage nor do I care just basic observation .. no ashes on tv news. now ashes on TV news ? given all the lack of religous freedom noise coming from the Christian right it's not hard to question the motive .... I wish it was as simple as showing ones faith . But I am not buying it
