Some news viewers think they have the right to judge and criticize local anchors and reporters, but journalists have a thick skin and can usually quietly take the negative feedback.
However, when a woman called in and told Augusta, Georgia anchor Laura Warren, who is 20 weeks pregnant, that she looks "disgusting," Laura had to respond.
Laura talked about how she fears raising her son in a world where adults "can say such cruel things?" She wrote, "It worries me. Right now, I can protect this sweet little boy. But, I won't always be able to. I certainly don't want him to dwell on the negative things insecure people are bound to say about him."
In the end, Warren decided to "turn her negative energy into positive energy" by saying as many nice things as she can to as many people as she can, adding that she plans to do it "in a dress that fits these beautiful new curves with [her] 'watermelon' stomach showing."
