Time's Blatant Misogyny

Original Link:

I just got this from Hillary's Rapid Responders:


Mark Halperin and Time Magazine continue with their rampant sexist attitude towards Senator Clinton in this photo: Time Photo

If Time Magazine would have displayed a photo with Senator Obama tied up to railroad tracks all fury would have broken loose in the media. But, apparently it is o.k. by Time Magazine’s standards to doctor an image of Senator Clinton with her hands and feet bound.

The only way to stop this mysognist (sic) and harmful messagin is to tell Time Magazine that this is unacceptable to the American people.

American journalism should mean something more than the degradation of women.

Write letters to Time at

And here's my letter:


You allow a doctored photograph of SENATOR Clinton tied and bound, outstretched on RAILROAD tracks in Mark Halperin's article?!?!? Senator Clinton is a Former First Lady of Arkansas, a Former First Lady of the UNITED STATES, and is serving her SECOND term as a US Senator, and you think this is APPROPRIATE?!?! There is NO way that a racially comparable photograph would EVER be allowed of Senator Obama, yet this IS? Has the media lost ALL sense of decency and decorum? From what I have seen this campaign season, the answer is a resounding YES. It has lost ALL sense of decency.

This blatant MISOGYNY is UNACCEPTABLE. There is NO excuse for it. It is reprehensible.
