Women Candidates Are Stronger When They Fight Sexism

In Jonathan Chait’s New York Intelligencer article cautioning women “not to play the victim card” when running as 2020 presidential candidates, doesn’t he see that a man telling a woman how she should present herself to the American people is in itself sexist? Why does he get to instruct her?  What white male has ever had to deal with gender issues on the national stage? ...

Misogynists Shape the Narratives that Keep Women from Power

The New York Times’ Glenn Thrush and The Young Turks’ Cenk Uyger are the two latest “journalists” to be hoist on the petard of their own misogyny. As has been pointed out elsewhere, if you want to know why Hillary Clinton got such crap coverage in 2016, and in 2008 for that matter, you need look no further than the men who shape the “news”...

Kamala Harris Gets Hillary’d

When speaking of Hillary Clinton, anyone who ever bought or sold the line: “I’d vote for any woman just not THAT woman” can now put that twaddle in the dustbin where it belongs. This week, we saw accomplished career prosecutor, former California AG, US Senator and Democratic rising star Kamala Harris shushed by several of her male colleagues when questioning both AG Jeff Sessions and...

#TheResistance, Hillary and Onward Together

If the speed with which the #TrumpRussia investigation snowballs is in inverse proportion to the disaster the Trump White House can inflict upon our nation, it will only be due to #TheResistance movement.  Many polls report that women account for 80% of #TheResistance with Washington Post noting: “The women’s march was the largest protest in U.S. history.” Women are used to spearheading (and doing a...

Don’t Let Big Media Off The Hook

If reactions on social media are any indication, too many are giving The New York Times and other prominent news outlets a relative pass for their obsessive, irresponsible Hillary coverage while being forgiving of their elevating Trump with no more than pale vetting. To make money, they turned one of the most important decisions of our lifetime into a game show. Now Americans are living...

The Insecure Male Behind Hillary Hate

Hillary Clinton was recently chosen America’s most admired woman for an unprecedented 21st year, yet the boundless admiration she inspires is matched by irrational revulsion.  The chasm between positive and negative made it critical that we examine what her presence meant on the world stage as she vied to become our first woman President, yet too many looked away: “We’re past all that, we don’t...

Beltway Press, You Own Matt Lauer: Trashing Him Doesn’t Absolve You

Beltway press reviews are in on Matt Lauer’s abysmal performance at NBC News’ Commander-in-Chief Forum last night: Lauer was out of his depth, ill-prepared and sexist, lobbing open ended softballs at a lying, flailing, Donald Trump, never correcting him while performing a hit job on Hillary Clinton. At a forum dedicated to foreign policy, Lauer spent most of his time on – God help me...

Was Hillary Clinton’s “Hard Road” to the Nomination Her Fault?

Was Hillary Clinton’s “Hard Road” to the Nomination Her Fault?

Hillary Clinton was just profiled in New York Magazine by the gifted Rebecca Traister, who wonders if Hillary’s road to the nomination needed to be as hard as it was. In her piece, Hillary Clinton vs. Herself, Traister posits Hillary made her path more difficult owing to her “pathological” need for privacy and purported hatred of the beltway press.  While she fairly reports Clinton’s gift...

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...
