"It should be required reading for all students planning a 'career' in journalism," writes our imail correspondent re Iowahawk's totally -- TOTALLY -- awesome "Bylines of Brutality," picked up not only by the usual suspects, from the professor on down, but by Mark Steyn himself, who notes re the NYTs "new story" in the wake of declining deaths in the war zones: "Americans are being cut down by violent irrational soldiers we can never hope to understand." Iowahawk turns the NYTs politically correct lie on its head, as Mark Steyn explains:
Better yet, the blogger Iowahawk meticulously drew his own "patchwork picture" of another "quiet phenomenon": the Denver newspaper columnist arrested for stalking, the Cincinnati TV reporter facing child-molestation charges, the Philadelphia anchorwoman who went on a violent drunken rampage. As Iowahawk's one-man investigative unit wondered: "Unrelated incidents, or mounting evidence that America's newsrooms have become a breeding ground for murderous, drunk, gun-wielding child molesters?"

The thing we hate most is the idea that women per se would glom onto Hillary because "the boys" are piling on, as National Review's Myrna Blyth reports:
So how the media treats a female candidate becomes a factor not only in shaping women’s opinions about the candidate, but also by determining how supportive of that candidate women will be when they arrive at the ballot box. The media may have helped Hillary when they were being positive about the inevitability of her campaign. But they may have helped her even more, at least with women voters, when they turned negative about her chances. A woman’s vulnerabilities, real or pretended, and how the media focuses on them, can become more important than her policies, especially at a time when media coverage has turned this election into a year-long 24/7 reality show. And the twists and turns of the soap opera narrative of Hillary -- she’s up, she’s down, she rises once again are a lot more compelling to the media -- and, let’s admit it, to female voters -- than Hillary’s own chilly, wonky personality.
They should have never given women the vote.
