Media and misogyny

I happened upon this May 26 YouTube video of CNN's Howard Kurtz asking a panel of three women in media what they thought of Hillary Clinton's "sexist treatment by the press." They didn't hold back from citing the media, Internet sites, politicians, Obama supporters, and women who had attacked Hillary.

A transcribed quote from Marie Cocco, syndicated columnist for the WashPo:

But if you ever saw the language, the vulgarity, the vitriol that is hurled at Hillary Clinton by liberal Democrats, by the liberal blogs, largely by frankly Obama supporters, um, you'd be appalled. I mean you would punish your children for this.

What do you think about what the women said?
