Yeah, I know that’s generally how the MSM coverage falls out most of the time, but it’s ratcheted up a few notches in recent weeks, hasn’t it? PM Gillard’s smackdown of Abbott in Question Time went viral while our parliamentary press gallery went ‘meh’, the US presidential campaigns are getting down deep into the mud-throwing while pontificating about women and just not mentioning climate change etc
As I retweeted last night:
Me too! RT: @brocklesnitch: It’s nearly Monday! i can’t wait to hear what male politicians have to say about women this week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
