Idiotic WaPo Reporter: Blame Conservative Media For “Coded Sexism” Words You Can’t Use To Describe Hillary…
These people are hilarious…
Washington Post political reporter Aaron Blake picked up on the Hillary Clinton “Super Volunteers” badgering New York Times reporter Amy Chozick about the 13 words you can’t use to describe Hillary because it’s coded sexism.
But Blake took a fascinating turn: he defended the “mainstream media” against the idea they attacked Hillary. These negative adjectives are used by the “conservative media” or “people who don’t like Hillary Clinton.” This means liberal journalists don’t fit that category.
But do the media actually use these words to describe Clinton? Well, yes, but only if you loosely define “the media” as “the conservative media” and “people who don’t like Hillary Clinton.”
In fact, if you Google “Hillary Clinton” and “calculating,” there are 140,000 results. The first slew of results come from conservative outlets like The Daily Caller, The Blaze, Breitbart, the Daily Telegraph and also the Republican “America Rising” super PAC. One result comes from the Los Angeles Times, but it’s a defense Bill Clinton lodged in 2007 against the attacks.
“Calculating” is almost completely something used to attack Clinton or describe the attacks on her. The same goes for “disingenuous,” “insincere,” “entitled,” “secretive,” “over-confident,” “represents the past” and “out of touch.” These are all loaded words and not terms used casually by mainstream media journalists like Chozick to describe a politician.
