JUST ASKING ….curious about your opinion: MEDIA DOUBLE STANDARD? or NOT?

  1. Does the media treat, suggest or characterize male politicians who choke up or tear up (President Bush 41, 43 and President Obama just recently at Newtown) differently from how they treat, suggest or characterize female politicians choking up or tearing up?  (Eg Secretary Clinton choked up when talking about the deaths at Benghazi)
  2. Does the media characterize one as showing great empathy and the other weak? Or is the media even handed on this one?
