Reliable Sources: The Media and Misogyny (Video)

Don't faint, but here's a video clip of the media actually critiquing the media. Even more startling, Howard Kurtz, um, listens to women! Marie Cocco (Misogyny I Won't Miss), Carol Costello and Blanquita Cullum testify to the media hatred of the women and girls of America. (When was the last time you saw a cable news panel with more women than men????)

Along the way, the women note that much of the most extreme misogyny comes straight from our former friends in the formerly progressive blogosphere. And Howard Kurtz is exactly right -- there is indeed a monumentally mean backlash brewing. And it's coming for the misogynistic media and the malicious and cowardly and allegedly progressive Democrats too.

[I]f you ever saw the language, the vulgarity, the vitriol that is hurled at Hillary Clinton by liberal Democrats, by the liberal blogs, largely by, frankly, Obama supporters, you'd be appalled. I mean, you'd punish your children for this.
--Marie Cocco

Thank and congratulate CNN for the groundbreaking idea of letting women speak! Send your thanks and encouragement to:; and Cullum at: 703.799.3737. If you find contact info for Costello, please leave it in the comments.
