The news does not follow the same format it used to back in the day. There is a 24/7/365 reporting cycle. To fill in all that time pundits have now taken over the airspace. And with punditry youve got news heavily laden with opinion.yikes folks...
crazy crap. However, now that there might be another conservative candidate in Michelle Bachmann the media attacks have been renewed.
Do the media do this with Democratic women? Or Men?
There cannot be a double standard? Could there be?
No one is safe, and what you see as attacks is becoming part and parcel with media outlets. You might have forgotten how Hillary Clinton was ridiculed over her choice of attire (pantsuits) and when she got teary-eyed during a political stop when she was running for president.
As for Michelle Bachmann, shes really given everyone from comedians, comedic writers, pundits, all of us, the where-by to poke fun at her. Shes become a caricature. The way she speaks in cliches, her confrontational attitude, even her appearance in response to Obamas state of the Union address, have left her opened for ridicule and mockery. For the media, its a feeding frenzy.
