1/ Just briefly wanted to talk about some of my concerns about how the media is covering the 2020 Women Candidates but I'll start with 2016. #MondayMotivation #mondaythoughts #GroupThink #WhiteMaleMedia #Bias
#Misogyny #Racism #Hypocrisy
2/Its problematic that our media is dominated by white males who work in groupthink (Look at #TheMuellerReport's groupthink 'conclusion' coverage). It's especially problematic when it comes to covering white male candidates vs female candidates, female & male candidates of color.
3/Thankfully we have news programs like @JoyAnnReid that are incredibly inclusive. I'd like to see more news programs follow her model, but even w/ that we still need MORE diverse voices on TV that we haven't really seen yet. We need more statistics based coverage less punditry.
4/We're seeing a lot of push back from white male journalists who still don't want to be self-reflective about 2016, nor how they are continuously participating in groupthink when it comes to 2020 coverage. We want more balanced coverage of our female candidates & their policies.
5/The media as a whole hasn't really delved into some of the amazing policy proposals from @ewarren @KamalaHarris @amyklobuchar @SenGillibrand instead they've been fawning over Mayor Pete and Beto's policy 'stances'. There's a big difference between these two:
6/Policy 'stances' aren't Policy 'Proposal'. As I said yesterday, me saying 'I'd like everyone to have access to tequila' is my tequila "stance" it's not my tequila "policy proposal" which would outline how I'd pay for, produce, distill, and distribute said tequila.
7/ I appreciate everyone who has been sharing and commenting on this thread 🧵. I do talk about these issues w/ experts on my podcast #OBSCENE
