Right-Wing Media Publishes Sexist Story Ogling Baltimore Prosecutor Marilyn Mosby

Tucker Carlson’s The Daily Caller news site ran a story on Friday written by their Sports Editor, Christian Datoc, that consisted of almost nothing but sexist tripe about how “smoking hot” the author thinks Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby is. The piece, titled “Let’s Be Honest: The Baltimore State’s Attorney Is Kind Of A Smokeshow”, begins with two paragraphs of news, and then quickly dissolves into the author ogling Prosecutor Mosby.

Datoc fantasizes throughout his narrative, describing Mosby as “incredibly sexy” and flashing “crazy girl” eyes. He concludes his piece with the perverse line “I wouldn’t mind being unrestrained in the back of Ms. Mosby’s paddy wagon”.

With that perverse finishing touch, he not only emphasizes his sexism one final time, but he also draws a wildly inappropriate reference to Freddie Gray’s ultimately fatal last ride. Instead of reflecting upon Freddie Gray’s death, Datoc wants the reader to indulge in his erotic fantasy, dismissing Gray’s homicide as a mere afterthought. Datoc is more interested in imagining his own “joy ride” with the Baltimore prosecutor than he is in reporting the details surrounding Gray’s death.

Sexism seems to run rampant at The Daily Caller. In March, Tucker’s brother, Buckley Carlson, got into trouble when he inadvertently sent a “reply to all” e-mail to a Bill De Blasio spokeswoman where he called her a “self-righteous b****”. His brother later defended Buckley by saying, ”I just talked to my brother about his response, and he assures me he meant it in the nicest way.”

The Daily Caller is a conservative website. For that reason, nobody should expect them to champion liberal causes like reproductive choice or equal pay for equal work. However, even political conservatives should, at the very least, demand that the page refrain from overtly sexist stories like Datoc’s article. His demeaning essay treats Marilyn Mosby as nothing more than a piece of eye candy for his leering eyes.

If The Daily Caller’s columnists are unable to respect women as professionals, they have no business writing news. While I am sure Tucker Carlson will defend Christian Datoc’s piece by saying “he meant it in the nicest way,” there is nothing nice about objectifying women. Hopefully some day, Tucker Carlson and his colleagues will understand that.
