Like the other networks, the PBS NewsHour has been very slow to offer any stories or interviews to the midterm elections. In October, the closest thing to a candidate interview was a chat with Rep. Paul Ryan on October 1. On Tuesday, anchor Judy Woodruff promoted liberal Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), a potential presidential candidate if you listen to the pundits -- but she's not on the ballot this year.
Woodruff was two weeks late to the party relaying Gillibrand’s claims that she was “harassed” by other Senators who made remarks about her appearance. However, Woodruff asked something rare. Reporters always underline Republicans have trouble with women voters, but who asks Democrats about their problems with men?
