desperate attempt for ratings during November sweeps week bold statement on the freedom of artistic and personal expression, television journalist Sharon Reed posed naked for a special report on Cleveland's Action 19 news, as we mentioned earlier this week. From early reports, you would've thought it was for a new issue of "Juggs" instead of a mass nude shot by art photographer Spencer Tunick last summer; judging from these screencaps, however, maybe Ms. Reed should consider following up her appearance with a more in-depth report sometime? After all, February sweeps are right around the corner.
