The Daily Show's Jon Stewart hammered the media for the double standard applied to Hillary Clinton and other female politicians compared to their male counterparts and whether their emotions are kept in check.
April 22, 2014

The Daily Show's Jon Stewart opened his show this Tuesday by going after the double standard applied to grandmother-to-be Hillary Clinton compared to her male counterparts such as Mitt Romney, who Stewart described as having "a litter of grandchildren" -- and who never had to put up with speculation on whether he was forcing one of his daughter-in-laws to get pregnant to help his presidential ambitions.

Stewart took the media to task for everything from the Chelsea Clinton nonsense, to Michael Hayden's remarks about DiFi, to Christie throwing Bridget Kelly under the bus.

He proceeded to give the viewers a montage of all of those "level headed" male politicians keeping their emotions in check, like McConnell, Issa and crying Boehner with the tears flowing, and bully-boy Chris Christie berating one of his constituents, and the talking heads in our media praising various male politicians for their emotional outbursts.

I don't want to give any more away, so just go watch it.
