Thanks, marag for inspiring the subject. There's a piece in today's Times, and it's already on the "most emailed" list, about the "question" of whether there was sexism in the coverage of Hillary Clinton's campaign. http://www.nytimes.com/2008/06/13/us/politics/13women.html?em&ex=1213502400&en=e42a33392b8377cc&ei=5087%0A

It's certainly a better piece than the MSNBC one, and does mention one of the Times's own sexist comments. But it has a picture, captioned, "Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton is interviewed on her campaign plane in March." Here's the picture:


Can you imagine a picture of a male politician illustrating an article about his campaign that showed his chest and not his face?
