On May 19, 2008, news outlets were consumed by three major stories: The KY, OR primaries, sexism in the campaign process, and Ted Kennedy’s sad, serious gliomal brain tumor diagnosis.
The previous evening, ABC’s Nightline broadcast a story about women voters who feel disenfranchised by the handling of this election on many fronts. (If you’re new to this issue, please see just about everything I’ve posted since inception of this blog.) Here’s the segment, courtesy of Taylor Marsh on YouTube.
It was followed by a reemergence of Geraldine Ferraro and other interviews on ABC, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, FOX. (Sorry there’s too much to keep up with to cook all those links for you. Everybody’s on their own for dinner, kids.)
Check our this brand new video report posted in May 21, 2008 NY Times, “Hillary Clinton and Women Voters” subtitled, “A new poll and interviews reveal a complicated relationship between Hillary Rodham Clinton and the group many view as her base.”
Oh, and now, at about midnight, Fox News’ Juan Williams is talking about how she’s taken off as an underdog candidate, propelled by the women voters!
