No one wants to admit the sad truth…
In a recent interview with Fox News, Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) gave her opinion about the recent letter demanding news outlets be thoughtful about the way they portray a female vice presidential pick in the media. Blackburn hit back by reminding the media that “conservative women are at the bottom of the pecking order in Washington, D.C.”
According to Breitbart, Blackburn stated, “Why would you choose to treat a liberal woman differently than a conservative woman? If you want to make certain that the treatment of women is going to be fair and equal and respectful, then you want that for all female candidates. Look at the way conservative women are treated by the media. You would think that conservative women are at the bottom of the pecking order in Washington, D.C. If you are pro-life, then the liberals say, well, you can’t possibly be pro-woman. … If you are pro-business, then they will come at you for that. They want you to agree with them on every point. So, if they want to talk about the treatment of women, let’s make certain that all women are treated fairly by the media.”
