Playboy prints “10 conservative women to hate-f***” article, then sends press release about it
It all started when Playboy.com decided to publish a hate piece by rape-fantasist Guy Cimbalo that envisioned sexual attacks on leading conservative women, including Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly and bloggers Amanda Carpenter, […] Mary Katharine Ham and Michelle Malkin. The writing and the entire concept of the piece were so vile that the AOL News publication Politics Daily wouldn’t leave a liberal writer’s criticism of it online.
For whatever clueless reason, a female blogger at Politico decided to whitewash the misogynistic language and name the conservative women without comment about the hateful rhetoric, but conservative bloggers weren’t about to keep quiet. In addition to blogging their outrage, they organized a “tweetstorm” against the author and complained to Playboy.
Bloggers like John Hawkins of Right Wing News were particularly irked not only that Playboy published the piece but that its PR department sent a press release about the article to conservative bloggers.
