The media is very interested in examining their own role in the demise of the Hillary Clinton campaign, as well as pundits who have gotten their predictions wrong time and time again.
It’s probably safe to say that bad predictions starting almost two years ago, as well as subtle and not-so-subtle sexism in news coverage of the Clinton campaign will be fodder for more news pieces for months to come.
So will things change as we go forward? That would be nice, but unless more of us call on talking heads to be a bit more careful in their political rushes to judgment and demand a little more gender neutral coverage of women politicians in the future (yeah, I’m talking to you Mike Barnicle), we’re going to get more of the same.
How do I know that? It took less than two seconds to turn from Hillary Clinton to Michelle Obama.
Buckle up, Michelle, and have a talk with your daughters about this. They need to be ready because even if you can keep the TV news turned off in your home, they’re going to hear the nasty things some people are getting ready to say about you.
