Mr. McCain and The Women
Posted by Moira Whelan
From Hanna Lundqvist:
It’s fascinating that it took the women of The View, so often derided as a lightweight, softball program that broadcasts only to housewives, to ask John McCain the tough questions that CNN, MSNBC, ABC News, Fox News and the print media have been unable to.
In the past few weeks, and indeed much of the election period, the news cycle has been filled with various accusations of sexism and speculation on the reasons for Hillary Clinton’s loss and Sarah Palin’s selection as John McCain’s running mate. What better way to put an end that period and move forward than with the women of The View scoring one of the smartest, strongest and most memorable journalistic moments of the entire presidential campaign?
