Glam Shots for One, Not for the Other: Different Media Standard for Hope Hicks and Chelsea Manning Draws Backlash

Glam Shots for One, Not for the Other: Different Media Standard for Hope Hicks and Chelsea Manning Draws Backlash

Eoin Higgins, staff writer

The contrast between media coverage of two women, Hope Hicks and Chelsea Manning, who are each refusing to cooperate with federal investigations did not go unnoticed on Memorial Day Weekend.

"Give Chelsea Manning the glamour shot and charitable take she deserves."
—Bob Bland

One is complicit in the transformation of the Empire to a fascist dictatorship, the other is fighting for transparency in a democracy. Why is it so hard to understand why Hope Hicks gets favorable treatment by the authoritarians and their enablers?

Chelsey Manning doesn’t need a glam shot to reveal her beautiful humanity.

The caption says: “Awe shucks slappy.” At least it seems to. Stumpy pays no attention to the incarcerated unless it is one of HIS crooks. Sorry Chelsea, your on your own here.

Why do Hicks and Manning get such different coverage from the media?
It has nothing to do with how they look, it’s the way they think.

Chelsea Manning is protecting a hero, and Hope Hicks is protecting a zero.

Hope-the-hick is an fj while Chelsea Manning is a true hero, ergo, there’s no comparison – just like PB stated, the hick is a zero!

Hey Melania, this photo seems to have caught your main squeeze involved in a little "Hanky Panky."

So let’s treat them the same-- if Chelsea has to go to jail to defend her principles, let’s let Hope do the same. Let’s give her a clam shot from behind bars.

A little off topic, but be careful if you do a internet search for “clam shot.”
