New York Post's Sexist Clinton Cover Gets Fox Host Chris Wallace's Approval
The New York Post reacted to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's January 23 congressional testimony with a front page photograph of a supposedly angry Clinton and the headline, "NO WONDER BILL'S AFRAID." The tabloid quickly  drew  criticism, with writers calling the cover "blatantly sexist,"  and "offensive sexist garbage."  The Post however found a fan with fellow News Corp. employee and Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace.
Speaking on Allman in the Morning, Wallace expressed amusement at the cover, telling host Jamie Allman: "Let me tell you -- you probably haven't seen it, the front page, the big front page of The New York Post today is a picture of her looking, screaming during her answer, and the headline is, 'No Wonder Bill's Afraid.'" A laughing Allman replied: "I don't know, that's not very nice." Wallace responded: "Well no, but it's funny" and "nice can be overrated sometimes."
Listen to Wallace's comments from the January 24 edition of KFTK's Allman in the Morning:
The Post is one of several conservative outlets and figures  to push sexist attacks in response to Clinton and the Benghazi attacks. In his January 24 Washington Times column , Wesley Pruden similarly tied Clinton's supposedly "angry and combative" testimony to discredited rumors  about her alleged interactions with President Clinton in the White House.
