Clearly this is an unflattering opinion but the fact is that Ms. Rivers had this opinion. It is not a fact that the outfit made the wearer look like a cow. This of course differs from a news outlet like Entertainment Tonight which might report that Kim and Kanye were spotted at an LA hotspot. Sometimes this blog reads more like Joan Rivers’ Fashion Police than Entertainment Tonight. Is that the balance you are aiming for?

And we can’t have that!

      Have you tried politics?
