Media Sexism Doomed Hillary Clinton's 2008 Bid.

Ironic that Paul Bedard quotes two different media sexism studies that claim it is sexist to refer to a politician by their first name, yet "Paul" only uses Hillary Clinton's first name in the headline article! 

I suppose it's possible that "Paul" did not have control over the headline, which then makes the use of Hillary Clinton's first name only, proof that media sexism is still alive and well, no?

Secondly, no mention by "Paul" about the PUMA movement and PUMA protests which focused on sexism and unfairness regarding how the media handled the 2008 democratic nomination race.

I would not fault the writer for the headline without knowing whether he wrote it or an editor did.

Main point: I never called politicians by their first name till Hillary, just to make it clear that the reference was not to Bill.

There was sexism galore, but "Hillary" is a poor example that weakens the case.

But as a male I would not refer to Bill Clinton as Bill. I think most of the time I used Hillary Clinton when referring to Hillary Clinton.

However, I could see females using Hillary only just because they felt a bond with her since she was the first woman to run for president.

Again attempting to speak from a women's point of view for a moment or one moment here, if Oprah can be called Oprah, then Hillary Clinton can be called Hillary by other women as a sign of respect.

But when men did it, I don't think it was necessarily a sign of respect.
