Vargas Speaks

You don't have to believe her, but in an interview with the Philly Inquirer's hard-working TV reporter Gail Shister, ABC's Elizabeth Vargas insists she's responsible for her decision to leave the anchor desk on the network's nightly newscast -- and is not a poster child for network sexism and anti-mommyism as some have insisted. Here's her best quote:

"I am not a pregnant working mother wronged," she says. "I played a crucial and active role in this decision. It's the best thing for me and my family and my career right now... . I have no complaints."

That doesn't mean she isn't doing a hell of a job of taking one for the team. On the other, hand, can we at least entertain the possibility that she's telling the truth?
