Liberal Pundit Powers Explains to Hannity Why Liberals Deploy Double Standard on Anti-Woman Comments

The reason there's a double standard in the media when it comes to conservative versus liberal media personalities making offensive statements about women in politics, Kirsten Powers posited on last night's edition of "Hannity," is because attacking conservatives is a "proxy war" that aids liberal Democrats.

The liberal writer appeared on the March 5 Fox News program to discuss her March 4 Daily Beast post  wherein she blasted the media for fixating exclusively on Rush Limbaugh "slut" comments about Sandra Fluke whilehaving consistently failed to call out liberal journalists, pundits and the like for their misogynistic comments (video posted after page break; MP3 audio here).

It's "frustrating" because it's couched in terms of standing up for women, but in reality, "what you see is they stand up when it suits them, but if it's going to go after a person that they like" or at least "whose show they like to go on," while they may complain here and there, they won't set out an all-out effort to discredit or silence the liberal personality that is offensive.

"They don't bring the big guns out for it, they don't really go after them in a serious way," Powers noted.
