What’s New in the Newsroom?

Here’s what our fem-fab bloggers discussed in the newsroom this week!

Politics:

  • Donald’s latest horrible comments about women “when you’re a star you can do anything…” But despite the long list of misogynistic comments, Female Trump supporters don’t care that he’s sexist?!
  • Robert De Niro released a video exposing his feelings about the Republican candidate, saying “I’d like to punch Donald Trump in the face.”
  • The Hillary campaign released another ad in response to the leaked Trump audio using his rhetoric about women and it is brilliant.
  • The O’Reilly Factor’s Jesse Walters’ new segment promotes stereotypes of Asian Americans and is flat out racist.

Pop Culture:

International News:

  • The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights conducted an investigation into US race relations and here are their findings. They say, “there has been no real commitment to reparations and to truth and reconciliation for people of African descent.”
  • Hurricane Matthew hits Haiti. Where is the Haitian flag Facebook filter while over 900 lives are lost and cholera ravages survivors of the natural disaster?

Let us know if there’s anything you at home think we should be focusing on next week!
