MRC's Double Standard on Insulting Comments About The Looks of Others
Topic: Media Research Center

The Media Research Center's Katie Yoder rants in a July 24 post:

With incessant coverageon everything from slut-shaming to the Women’s March, the liberal media claim to stand for all women. All women, unless they disagree with a liberal agenda, that is.

So much for diversity and tolerance.

On Friday, The Daily Beast and Culture Writer Ira Madison III attacked the looks of newly appointed White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Twitter.

“Butch queen first time in drags at the ball,” he tweeted alongside a picture of Huckabee Sanders at a White House press briefing.

In other words, Madison called Huckabee Sanders a gay male (“butch queen”) dressed as a woman (“in drags”).

It seems Yoder has forgotten that her boss, MRC chief Brent Bozell, said President Obama looked like a "skinny ghetto crackhead." That seems relevant if Yoder wants to further express any kind of moral superiority over Madison. 

By the way, Madison later apologized and deleted his tweet (as Yoder later noted in an update). By contrast, Bozell has never apologized for his ugly, racially charged smear of Obama.

Yoder might want to keep that in mind as well the next time she attacks someone else for mocking the appearance of another.
