The Local News Clip That May Confirm the Major Wardrobe Theory Many of Us Have

Radio talk show host Howie Carr may be sharp when it comes to getting the lowdown on the trial of James “Whitey” Bulger, but he isn’t exactly a sharp dresser. At least not when he ambled upon the set at WFXT-TV in Boston and sat down with anchor Maria Stephanos to talk about the Bulger trial.

In fact, Carr opted for the pant-less look. Shorts won the day…and sandals. (Points to him, though, for showing up to the interview in a shirt and tie). And he may have confirmed the theory many hold about what exactly people on television wear behind the news desk (or below the camera’s view):

Why, oh why?

Well, Carr hints at what might pass for a radical fashion statement by telling Stephanos that “the glass is half-full.” But she had the better comeback: “The glass is half full, but the outfit is half empty.”

Check out the full exchange (and full-frontal view of Carr apparently enjoying the summer weather):
