This Pisses Me Off: Murdock/New York Post Goes After Hillary Clinton With Blatantly Sexist Cover

New York Post Goes After Hillary Clinton With Blatantly Sexist Cover
By Aviva Shen on Jan 24, 2013 at 10:07 am

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is taking flack from conservatives over her angry outburst during a Senate committee hearing on the Benghazi terror attacks. When pressed by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) on whether or not she could have immediately determined the motive of the attack, Clinton snapped, “The fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest? Or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they’d go kill some Americans? What difference, at this point, does it make?”

The New York Post, owned by conservative mogul Rupert Murdoch, responded to the instantly viral moment with a blatantly offensive cover on Thursday morning:

1. Don't see it...

Murdoch and the Post have actually been fairly supportive of Hillary during her Senate career. I suspect this is more of a traditional dig at Bill than one at Secretary Clinton.

5. Yeah, cause nothing says Murdoch supports Sec. Clinton quite like a raging shrew inference!

No wonder Bill's afraid? Oh yeah, more supportive language!

Just another attempt to pillory Sec Clinton. And yeah, it's a misogynistic POS cover.

15. this will clue you in. this is a joke that has been repeated endlessly from men, about women. hahah

when a joke about the woman/wife has been being used repeatedly over and over and over that is said amongst the men for a good chuckle, wink wink jab in the ribs, it is a clue in that it is about sexism. when women repeatedly tell you that we have all heard this again and again, a good little joke for the MEN to giggle at... never the woman, it clues you in.

or you can continue to ignore the women telling you and pretend you do not see it.

3. I like it when Dems show a little appropriate anger....

... it makes me want to send money.

Hillary's stock went up with me about 10 points yesterday.

If the RWnuts don't like that... all the better.

4. "Explodes with rage"? Hyperbolic horse shit, of course, but no one expects better from the NY Post

Be afraid, Bill...Be Very Afraid!

18. And that, of course, is the point

 

It is a Murdoch-owned birdcage liner, after all.

8. Isn't the NY Post something one usually wipes with rather than reads?

I was under the impression it's really just a POS rag anyway. People buy it for entertainment value and not news. Much like the International Inquirer.

17. That's what's known as "projection". Because they are the ones who are afraid.

Especially because they know that come 2016, they're most likely going to have to run Porky, Dorky, Jebby or Jindy against her.

20. I can't take the NY Post seriously enough to be offended by it

I saw it in the supermarket yesterday...and

They are expensive bird cage liner, and not even good for that. Sinking to the level of the National Enquirer is pathetic. Next up: BIGFOOT!

21. It's the Post so it's SOP for them, but it is a good example of the kind of sexist shit

that too many people don't even recognize as sexist.
