Use your imagination for a minute.......

Just imagine that Jeb Bush, or the Donald, or even Jim Webb, wrapped themselves in an entirely ALL MALE assembly of of reporters on the campaign trail. Females need not apply ---
Just imagine the outcry from the distaff members of the Fourth Estate!

Ahead of the Democratic presidential primary debate in Las Vegas, 18 of the female reporters who cover Hillary Clinton gathered for a snapshot at the Wynn Hotel. The group assembled – pulled over for a photo in the midst of live shots, interviews and filing stories – are just a portion of the dozens of women who are regularly on the Clinton trail.

But that is exactly what Hellary has done --- only one male in the entire ensemble, a hyphenated Brit from MSNBC. (not a stretch to fit in with this group) 

What is my point?  Not the all girl choir and cheering squad behind Ms Hellary - my point is ---'What ever happened to that Fourth Estate that used to shine the light of public awareness on such national events?"
