I first read about this (above) in Mediaite. Someone tipped me off. (The pic of Cutter and the worthless jerk who wrote it I lifted from Mediaite. CLICK HERE)
Mediaite, in its posting, was taking The Daily Caller to task for this disgusting piece of dribble (misogyny) posted on The Daily Caller website. Good for Mediaite! I appreciate that they spotted this and posted it!
This Daily Caller posting is supposed to be a review of the new show Crossfire on CNN. It is so not that. It is just a hate piece and an effort to demean women. How many at The Daily Caller knew about this and read it before it was posted?
Look, I don’t want you to watch CNN — I want you to watch Fox. But I am not going to sit back while some woman — here Stephanie Cutter — gets gratuitously trashed by some guy on some website. It is just wrong and ugly and we all need to stand up when this happens and all call them out — not just Mediaite.
The Daily Caller should take it down and should apologize to Cutter. And let me add, immediately.
This is about journalism, plain old fashion decency and respect for women. You may like Cutter, or not, you may agree with her or not….but no decent person would look the other way and not call out The Daily Caller on this.
This Daily Caller posting was not a smart review or smart criticism of Crossfire and had nothing to do with television — this was just this jerk’s chance (and his editor) to tip his hand how he feels about women.
UPDATE 6pm: “hilarious?” really? Is that what misogyny is? hilarious? Oh brother…..
Who is Jeffrey Lord? See below…and by the way, I knew Jack Kemp very well and he was always a gentleman. He was deeply devoted to trying to rid the country of poverty and deeply devoted to fairness. He was a good man. I can’t imagine him ever thinking being ugly and cheap is ‘hilarious.’ And from what I have heard and read about President Reagan, the same would be said about him. I doubt either would be impressed by their former aid finding this “hilarious.” By the way, we all make mistakes….and a quick apology could go far to repairing this and a great learning experience.
