Female Journalists are causing the chickification of news, at least according to Rush Limbaugh.
Limbaugh thinks Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton is getting "sympathetic" treatment from the media because most of the journalists covering her are women.
During his radio show, Limbaugh referenced a Politico article titled "The Women In The Van," which profiles the largely female press corps covering Clinton's presidential campaign.
The host references the image at the top of the Politico piece and quickly estimates it shows 22 women -- it actually shows 18 -- who are covering the campaign. The picture doesn't include the one male member of the Clinton press corps.
"There's not a guy in this picture," Limbaugh said before beginning to opine on the "chickification" of the news. "If you wonder why the Hillary news coverage is, you simply have to look at that picture."
"The chickification of the news is made up of many facets, but one of the facets is that men really can't be fair to women," he said. "Not that they try to be unfair, but they just can't fully relate. It takes a woman to understand a woman. It takes a woman to get deep with another woman. It takes a woman to understand. And so, that's the press gaggle that follows Hillary Clinton around."
Limbaugh's claim that women are somehow becoming the dominant force in the news business.
That statement is also untrue, but hey, since when does Limbaugh let the facts get in the way of a good story?
