Rep. Rashida Tlaib's (D-Mich.) profanity about impeaching President Trump received five times more coverage on cable news than Rep. Steve King's (R-Iowa) questioning of why white supremacy is considered offensive, according to data collected by the liberal non-profit Media Matters for America.

Details: Tlaib's call to "impeach the mother***er" got more than two-and-a-half hours of air time from MSNBC, CNN and Fox News, 24 hours after the comment was made. The bulk of the coverage came from Fox News, which devoted 52 minutes to Tlaib. King's comments on white supremacy received less than 30 minutes of cable news time from the same three outlets in the first 24 hours. Fox News covered it for 42 seconds.

1. A woman using a little bad language at a party gets more shit than a man using racist words

and then defending them. Of course.

3. It's a net plus for her, however.

 

She talks like a real person and real people like that. I expect the inanity and obvious prejudice of the attack (coming from totally foulmouthed asses like Trump himself) has won her a lot more sympathy and profile than harmed her in any way.
