'Missrepresentation:' Hillary Clinton, Sarah Palin & the Deep Misogyny (Video)

Missrepresentation, the new documentary about the culture's deep misogyny, devotes significant time to the media's infamously sexist trashing of the women in the 2008 presidential election, Hillary Rodham Clinton and Sarah Palin:

The documentary "Missrepresentation," directed by Lieutenant Governor of California Gavin Newsom's wife Jennifer Siebel Newsom, explores how mainstream media undermines American women in influential positions, and the impact this makes on young girls. It also challenges what it says is the media's often disparaging portrayal of women. In particular, "Missrepresentation" devotes quite a bit of time to how Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton were covered by mainstream media in the 2008 presidential elections.
