Sexism and Racism are Nothing -- even if the Victims are Republicans

Why Fox News' Defense Of Megyn Kelly Is Going To Backfire (Amanda Marcotte) from Talking Points Memo
"Conservative media and Fox News in particular have spent years - decades, if you count talk radio - training their audiences to believe that exhortations against sexism and racism are nothing but the “political correctness” police trying to kill your good time. Indeed, one reason that Trump was able to get so much attention for his presidential run in the first place is that Fox has spent years building him up, knowing that their audience enjoys vicariously needling imagined liberals and feminists with his loud-mouthed insult comic act."
