Take back the MEDIA

Read THIS!

After tonight's debate this paragraph spoke volumes. The "incident" is referring to the diparaging comments against women made by Chris Matthews of MSNBC.

" "This incident, though, speaks to the larger issue that women are not fully represented in our media: when networks—in the year 2008— still cannot seem to find women to anchor serious political programs. That every lead anchor for every network’s campaign coverage is a white male, suggests the work of inclusion is not being done. That every Sunday morning talk show—where what is news is decided—is hosted by men; that every late night show that gives us clever interpretation of the news is hosted by men; and where women behind the scenes still seldom hold veto power over blatant sexist behavior— it means that we have a media that is dysfunctional. "

It/he/they just make me sick.
