Imagine Bernie Sanders as a Woman:
and Other Writings on Politics and Media 2016-2019
Published 2020, Outskirts Press, Inc.
A dynamic and readable book composed of straightforward book chapters, interviews, and original Facebook Posts by Bordo, this collection—a follow-up to The Destruction of Hillary Clinton—offers an astute analysis and criticism of unacknowledged gender (as well as race) dynamics at play in politics and the media… Bordo also demonstrates how broadcast news’ emphasis on optics rather than facts during the 2016 presidential election and currently, contributes to the spread of misinformation, distraction, and ultimately helped lead to the electing of Donald Trump as the U.S.’s 45th president. Philosophical. Assertive. A book for the record.
