Well that didn’t go well …

I had hoped that Tucker and I would have a strong debate about violence against women and how women are treated by some in the media and it just deteriorated to the two of us yelling at each other.  This was not about Gov Sarah Palin but rather repeating filth to demean women…any women.  You could replace Palin’s name in the debate with other womens’ names.  She was just the “poster child” of the debate since the filth was written about her – I had hoped to discuss that journalists should challenge women on issues rather than repeat vile filth that denigrates and even makes light of violence against women.   I have defended women on both sides of the aisle and even in the middle.  I agree, it is not very productive to yell at each other – which we did to each other.   On the bright side, perhaps our unhappiness with each other will provoke discussion about the more important issue.
