Hillary’s Clean Sweep and the State of the Race

Hillary made history again last Tuesday, taking the primary contests of Florida, Ohio and North Carolina by huge margins, and unexpectedly scoring narrow wins in Illinois and Missouri.  Instead of celebrating her clean sweep, beltway media by and large pretended it wasn’t happening, focusing on “how well” Bernie did, or — in the case of major pundits/reporters Joe Scarborough, Brit Hume, Glenn Thrush and Howard...

Hillary’s Nomination Fight Complicated by Media Expectations

Hillary’s Nomination Fight Complicated by Media Expectations

The New York Times editorial board, after penning a glowing endorsement of Hillary Clinton’s candidacy, now chastises her for going hard at her opponent Bernie Sanders at last Sunday’s debate.  If I have this correctly, Sanders can daily infer she is a corrupt oligarch – obfuscating her excellent record – and she must stand there while he does it, never attack him and make sure...

Hillary in the Lion’s Den

Watching Secretary Clinton field questions from FOX anchor Bret Baier at their Dem Town Hall last night, I couldn’t help but be knocked out by Hillary’s command of the issues, the specificity of her plans, her poise and grace under pressure. To say she is unflappable is an understatement. It really didn’t matter what Baier served up – grilling Clinton on Libya, abortion or emails,...

Elizabeth Warren, Traitor to the Cause?

Looking at Senator Elizabeth Warren’s Facebook page, you’d think she betrayed every one of her liberal values, since her account was overrun by hateful comments. Her crime: not endorsing Bernie Sanders. Some of his supporters seemed to blame her for his loss in the Massachusetts primary on Super Tuesday. Without discussing the merits of either Hillary or Bernie, counting on endorsements to pull a candidate...

Hillary Clinton Faces Social Media Sexism Which Cannot Be Minimized

The Washington Post presented a 6-chart study documenting how much sexist verbiage Hillary Clinton receives on social media, and how many of these slurs can be blamed on “Bernie supporters” versus “Right Wingers.” While this study offers useful information, it cannot capture the long term effects of what Clinton and her supporters endure by way of sexist attacks, and owing to the anonymous nature of...

What the Media Wins By Pretending Hillary Is Not

Hillary Clinton won the Nevada caucus by 6 points. NBC’s Meet the Press and CNBC called her win “narrow.” Without first checking the final tally, much of mainstream media reported on erroneous entrance polls stating that she had lost the Latino vote. The opposite was true. Hillary eked out a win in Iowa, becoming the first woman in history to win the Iowa caucus. Media...

Why Killer Mike’s “Uterus” Comment Matters

The now viral comment rapper Killer Mike made at a Bernie Sanders’ rally that “having a uterus doesn’t qualify a woman to be president” constitutes crass sexism; reducing a very qualified Hillary Clinton to a body part. That Killer Mike quoted another woman in advancing a sexist argument doesn’t make it less sexist. Worse is the disrespect to Clinton’s achievements. Few women or men could...

Hillary, a Lifelong Champion for Women and Families

Having published an article reminding mainstream media of Hillary Clinton’s historic win at the Iowa caucus, I hit a nerve as many women and fair minded men shared the piece, fighting back against an elite punditry who attempted to spin away her accomplishment. I was shocked to also get responses from young women who had no idea of Hillary’s lifetime of work on their behalf....

Hillary’s Not Shouting, Boys. She’s In Charge.

Hillary’s Not Shouting, Boys. She’s In Charge.

When famed journalist Bob Woodward made reference to Hillary’s “shouting” the other day, I kept wondering if Bernie Sanders’ incessant barking, even yelling, on the campaign trail bothered him.  But, no.  Bob Cusack, editor-in-chief of The Hill, got a snoot full of twitter backlash during the Dem Debate last night when he tweeted: When Hillary Clinton raises her voice, she loses. .@BobCusack You’re editor-in-chief at...

Hillary Makes History in Iowa, Media Pretends Otherwise

Hillary just became the first woman in history to win the Iowa caucus. No matter how narrow a win, for Hillary Clinton to have even a fractional point advantage over Bernie Sanders in a state that is 91% white, where 43% of caucus goers self-identify as Socialist is, ahem, YUUUUUUGE. However a corporate media wants to spin this, Iowa is a state tailor made for...
