‘We just don’t know how to deal with gender yet with her’

MSNBC Contributor Sees Sexism in Media Coverage of Hillary Clinton’s ‘Hit List’ (Mediaite)

An MSNBC panel convened on Monday to discuss the hours-old revelations surrounding former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s maintaining a graded list of Democrats she believed did not support her 2008 presidential bid to her satisfaction. Most of the panel agreed that this is not a damaging revelation because it would not be unique to Clinton’s campaign, but one guest said that the “gendered” elements of the coverage of this scandal disturbed her and indicates that “we just don’t know how to deal with gender.”

“This doesn’t surprise me in the least,” said Democratic strategist and columnist Zerlina Maxwell of Clinton’s “hit list.” “This is very much a routine political exercise that any campaign, you know, that has due diligence would do.”
