He Said, She Said

Last night, the Times' website ran a piece by Katherine Q. Seele and Julie Bosman about the varied opinions concerning Hillary Clinton's media coverage-was it sexist or not? It's worth reading, but the takeaway seems to be this: While it's clear that she did endure some sexist coverage, it's not clear whether that coverage prevented her from earning the nomination she sought. The question of whether sexist media coverage was the reason she didn't secure the nomination is probably an overly reductive one. And blaming the media is a perennial tactic when hope is lost. But the issue of whether women can receive fair treatment in print, on TV, and online is one that will be here for a long time to come.
