Women’s Issues Are Not “Soft”: Sexism and the Urge to Devalue

In the media’s obsession with all things Hillary, the prognosticators for 2016 are exercising their insatiable need to sell copy by conjuring a blood feud between Vice President Biden and Secretary Clinton. We know Mr. Biden would love to be President. Respectfully, that day will likely not come for him. His team knows that, which is why they defensively balk at those who give the...

When in Doubt, Hide Behind Hillary

Hillary Clinton took time before her remarks on Wildlife Trafficking in Washington, D.C. yesterday to meet with President Obama and then, surprisingly, to weigh in on Syria. Despite years of pundits’ slurs to the contrary, former Secretary of State Clinton has proven a loyal soldier to the President, but why she would attach herself to the Syrian crisis under debate is a mystery worth unpacking....

Visual Vilification: A Tale of Two Hillarys

In the media’s obsession with all things Hillary, no sooner did NBC and CNN announce biopics on the former Secretary of State than the RNC denounced those films as biased infomercials. Republicans are terrified of running against someone with her bona fides and popularity. Cue the negative coverage, as evidenced by the photographs of Mrs. Clinton and RNC Chair, Reince Priebus, in the FOX News’ article, Republicans...

Daily Beast Insults both Diane Lane and Hillary Clinton Because…?

Way to go, Daily Beast. Thanks for a slap in search of a story. Stating that actress Diane Lane cannot do any more than smolder because she is “far too sexy” to portray Hillary Clinton in NBC’s upcoming miniseries is like saying the glamorous comedienne Mo’Nique would never be able to pull off her Oscar-winning turn as an abusive mother in Precious.  That’s why they call it acting.  Never...

Rabid on Benghazi, IRS Scandal and the Lessons of Violence on Finlay & Smart Talk

Tonight, John Smart and I tackle the pros and cons of Republicans’ rabid attempts to discredit Hillary Clinton in advance of 2016.  Interesting how she offered herself up, taking responsibility for State Department failures on Benghazi, prior to the election last year and Rep. Issa. Sen. Lindsay Graham and company would have none of it.  Now of course, the circus has begun anew for reasons...

Benghazi, Hillary 2016 and a Predictable Media

Yesterday, Representative Darrell Issa led his Oversight Committee through hours of questioning of Benghazi whistleblowers with one goal in mind – to ruin any hope Hillary Clinton has of running in 2016.  It could be argued Issa was also aiming to take down the Obama administration, but from the Kabuki theatre offered by both parties, who posture on the floors of Congress only to pass...

Does Our Nation’s Current Romance with Hillary Mean She Will Have an Easier Path in 2016?

Every week, another “Hillary: will she or won’t she” article erupts in the mainstream press.  If the amount of copy devoted to reading the tea leaves on Secretary Clinton’s 2016 ambitions were measured in decibels, the volume would be deafening, though we are years removed from the first primary.  CNN’s John King once said “the media suffers from a Hillary obsession.”  That much is true,...

Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi Testimony and the Men Who Fear Her

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gave 5-1/2 hours of patient and thorough testimony before the Senate and House yesterday regarding the events surrounding the tragic deaths of four Americans in Benghazi.    Not surprisingly, Wesley Pruden of The Washington Times published a smear piece entitled “Hillary’s Last Hurrah.”  He offered a photograph of the one moment she became frustrated with Republican Senator Johnson of Wisconsin, who...

Big Media and the Herd Mentality of Party Politics Create More Crises Than They Solve

Salon’s David Sirota today offered an article instructing Progressives to “check their optimism” when it comes to President Obama’s inauguration speech and what it might bode for his second term.  He stated that although Obama strung “together the most tried, true and poll-tested applause lines,” Sirota pointed out that no sentence “was as appropriate yet also dissonant as President Obama’s assertion that America should not...
