Editor In Chief Of The Hill: "When Hillary Clinton Raises Her Voice, She Loses"


Bob Cusack, editor in chief of The Hill, responded to the February 4 Democratic presidential debate by tweeting, "When Hillary Clinton raises her voice, she loses." Cusack's comment is the latest in a series of pundit critiques of Clinton's voice. As The Huffington Post has noted, such criticisms are "clearly sexist" because "shouting ... is not usually a liability for male candidates."

UPDATE: After the co-directors of the pro-choice group Reproaction issued an open letter calling his tweet "wrong, insulting, and belittling," and stating that they could not "continue to advertise in a publication where the Editor in Chief freely voices rhetoric that demeans and insults women," Cusack deleted his tweet and apologized.
