Ah, cable news sexism (and nativism and racism) is revealed in all its glory in a new video from the Woment's Media Center. "In Your Face With Mark & Friends" is a mock cable news show with two crowing misogynists and one diminished lady correspondent that features a ticker at the bottom of the screen which supplies similar dialog from actual, real-life media outlets. Art imitates life, but can life be far behind? If this is (fair & balanced) justifiable misandry, so be it.
Disclaimer: This blogger reserves the right to hate the former Governor of Alaska and her True Republican Women sisterhood. This has nothing to do with sex or gender. Evil is evil and it must be confronted in Texas, Alaska, Arizona, or wherever it rears its repulsive presence.

About The NameIt.ChangeIt Project
Widespread sexism in the media is one of the top problems facing women. A highly toxic media environment persists for women candidates, often negatively affecting their campaigns. The ever-changing media landscape creates an unmonitored echo chamber, often allowing damaging comments to exist without accountability.
We must erase the pervasiveness of sexism against all women candidates — irrespective of political party or level of office — across all media platforms in order to position women to achieve equality in public office. We will not stand by as pundits, radio hosts, bloggers, and journalists damage women's political futures with misogynistic remarks. When you attack one woman, you attack all women.
