ThinkProgress justice editor Ian Millhiser joins Paul Krugman in wondering how things might be different if it weren’t for guys like Matt Lauer:
I’m not the first or the tenth person to say this, but I can’t help wonder how different and how much better the last year would have been if Hillary Clinton hadn’t been covered by men who share Donald Trump’s view of women.

Really? Well, first of all…
I've got tough news for you about Hillary's spouse.

If the media was harder on sexual predators, Hillary would never have spent a single day in the White House. https://t.co/sPpZJZuMNd

Spare us the tears.
She was a ruthless enabler who stopped at nothing to destroy the women on whom her husband preyed. https://t.co/iC9DZEx0UX

A healthy degree of backfire there, and everywhere else for that matter:
I love how these clowns refuse to point out that these men are liberals. https://t.co/Jw9Y5KyF9H

The men who share Donald Trump's view of women are the ones who share Hillary's view of politics. https://t.co/f41olc9ppw

Boy they are still so butthurt over Matt Lauer daring to ask Hillary about the emails https://t.co/C2YDMGBhc5

An additional point of order from reporter David Martosko:
Bull. The vast majority of reporters covering Clinton's campaign were female. I was out there for awhile. Must have been at least 70-30.
