Washington Post's Jennifer Rubin attacks Politico as 'misogynistic,' calls coverage 'hysterical, clickbait'

Rubin, a strong defender of President Joe Biden’s administration, was responding to a request for comment for Politico’s story about the White House’s promotion of her columns.

“How utterly predictable that Politico would run the zillionth hit piece on a prominent woman, especially one candid in her critiques of Politico’s hysterical, clickbait style of coverage,” Rubin wrote in the email response. “The notion that I am polarizing in a newsroom (as opposed to any of the dozens of other opinion writers) is a ‘take’ only Politico could come up with — by of course running around to ask the question in the first place.”

WASHINGTON POSTS’S JENNIFER RUBIN ACCUSED OF ‘RUNNING PR FOR THE TALIBAN’ FOLLOWING VIRAL TWEET 

“I trust the Post’s superb news side folks spend zero time thinking about me (as is entirely appropriate). My only surprise is that Sam [Stein, POLITICO’s White House editor], a very good journalist, would become enmeshed in such an obviously misogynistic publication. Surely there are finer publications that would have him,” she added. “And btw, what a low class move to do this on Yom Kippur at the last moment.”
