Fox News host Martha MacCallum defended female hosts on the network Wednesday, saying they are "serious women with outstanding resumes" and aren't "blonde Barbies."
 
In a piece for Time magazine's opinion section, "Motto," MacCallum took exception to the Los Angeles Times's David Horsey not directly apologizing to her or other current Fox anchors after he characterized network employees as "blond Barbie dolls in short, tight skirts" in a Nov. 1 column.
 
The columnist initially made the remark while taking a shot at White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, arguing she isn't the type of woman President Trump wouldn't normally call upon to "represent his interests."
 
MacCallum noted in the op-ed Wednesday that the columnist had expressed remorse about the "Barbie" comments when pressed by former network host Megyn Kelly on her NBC morning program last week, but only did so in general terms.
