The Apprentice and Lorraine Tighe's eyes

As you probably know if you read this blog regularly, I love the reality TV show The Apprentice. What I don't love is when one of the contestants candidates wears glasses and a columnist for a national paper writes tosh such as this:

The rival team's amazing Body Rocka - a slab of plastic with no discernible purpose - romped to victory thanks to four-eyed Lorraine Tighe's impressive business pitch.

Kevin O'Sullivan of the Mirror: describing bespectacled individuals as 'four-eyed' is hackneyed, lazy writing. It's also insulting without being clever. Just stop it.

On a brighter note, if you're a Twitter-using Apprentice fan, then I recommend you follow @NotSirAlanSugar. That's how I came across O'Sullivan's piece in the first place.

Underestimate Lorraine at your peril.
