Vice story on ‘white, male, slim, and young’ body bias in medical textbooks mocked: ‘Dumbest woke criticism I have ever seen’

Liberal media outlet Vice was mocked on Thursday over a story explaining how medical textbooks feature too many bodies that are “white, male, slim, and young.”

Rhiannon Parker, a researcher at the University of Wollongong in Australia, has done extensive research on the apparent bias medical textbooks have had over the decades, “analyzing more than 6,000 images from 17 anatomy textbooks published between 2008 and 2013,” the story noted.

Her 2014 study concluded that only 36 percent of those images were identifiably female when she’d expected a “much bigger improvement on representation” from a 1994 study that showed just 32 percent were female.

A Vice article on bodies in medical textbooks triggered mockery.

Another observation Parker made in her study was that 76 percent of the male bodies featured in the medical textbooks were white while 86 percent of female bodies were white. She also found that only 2.7 percent were visibly disabled and only 2.2 percent were elderly.

“You don’t have any elderly in these textbooks even though the elderly need more healthcare,” Parker told Vice. “I think that was quite surprising to me, that those types of representations weren’t really in there.”

In a 2018 survey of anatomy students from the School of Medicine at the University of Wollongong, she found a significant amount of “implicit bias,” but noted that the bodies featured did not affect their “explicit bias.”

Vice shared the story on Twitter, where it caught lots of attention.

“Bodies in medical textbooks are overwhelmingly white, male, slim, and young,” Vice tweeted.

The tweet was signficantly ratio’d, meaning it received more replies than likes and retweets. Many slammed the story, including conservative commentator Ben Shapiro, who suggested it the “dumbest woke criticism” he had ever seen.

Watters: Dems, media in ‘full meltdown mode’ over Barr being held in contempt of Congress

Jesse Watters pointed to several members of the media and the Democratic Party he said were going into “meltdown mode” over Attorney General William Barr’s refusal to turn over the full and unredacted Mueller report to Congress.

The House Judiciary Committee voted Wednesday to hold Barr in contempt of Congress.

“So now, Democrats and the media are debuting a coordinated talking point to describe it – talk about collusion,” Watters said.

Watters said that several figures all used the phrase “constitutional crisis” to describe the White House’s refusal to date.

REPORTER’S NOTEBOOK: ROCKY HISTORY OF CONTEMPT EFFORTS IN CONGRESS

House Judiciary Committe Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta, CNN prime-time host Don Lemon and Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, all uttered the phrase in Watters’ montage.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., also responded in the affirmative when CNN host Anderson Cooper asked him whether he agreed with Nadler that America is experiencing a “constitutional crisis.”

“That’s what they’re saying now. But, back in 2012, Democrats and the media were singing a much different tune,” Watters said.

He said that some Democrats walked out of a vote to hold then-Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt, in connection with the so-called “Fast and Furious” scandal.

Current House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., ripped the Holder proceedings at the time, and fellow Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland blasted Republicans, saying they “seem almost giddy about this vote.”

INSPECTOR GENERAL PROBING ROLE OF TRUMP DOSSIER IN SECURING SURVEILLANCE WARRANT FOR AIDE

Cummings went on to call the situation in 2012 an “election-year witch hunt.”

“Let’s take a trip down Memory Lane,” Watters said, listing past presidents from both parties who have had their administrations subject to similar proceedings.

He mentioned the George W. Bush administration, in which White House Counsel Harriet Miers and Chief of Staff Joshua Bolten were held in contempt in 2007 over the alleged politicization of some U.S. attorneys.

Elizabeth Warren is latest 2020 Dem to snag Time magazine cover spot

Time magazine will feature Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., on its cover on May 20 — continuing a trend of spotlighting Democrats out to challenge President Trump in the 2020 election.

On Thursday, Time revealed the cover, which followed others featuring South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, former Vice President Joe Biden, and a long list of other Democratic candidates.

The magazine appeared to be focusing on Warren’s policy proposals — which conservatives have derided as socialist, too expensive and unrealistic — as “big ideas.”

“Elizabeth Warren is bettng that Americans are ready for her big ideas,” the cover read. It also highlighted Warren’s oft-repeated line “I have a plan for that.”

Noting the senator’s series of “complex policy proposals,” Time editor Haley Sweetland Edwards portrayed Warren as the catalyst behind a “populist political revolution.”

TIME MAGAZINE’S ‘MOST INFLUENTIAL’ LIST REVEALS JUST WHO IS ON WHOSE SIDE IN WASHINGTON

“This flurry of white papers, often rendered in fine detail, appears to suggest a technocratic approach to governing,” Edwards wrote in the magazine’s cover story. “But in fact, her ­vision, taken as a whole, is closer to a populist political revolution.”

Amid other concerns about bias, Time received criticism for its cover featuring Pete Buttigieg and his partner, Chasten, at the beginning of May. Left-leaning outlets PinkNews and Towleroad praised the cover, which featured the big-print type “First Family.”

“The unlikely, untested and unprecedented campaign of Mayor Pete Buttigieg,” it read. Buttigieg has become controversial for his claim to be a “devout Christian,” as Time described him, while maintaining a same-sex partnership — something many Christians have deemed contradictory.

TALE OF TWO DEMS: MAYOR PETE GETS COVER STATUS, BIDEN GETS WHACKED

Buttigieg’s cover story started with a description of an anti-abortion activist wearing a devil costume, taunting the Indiana mayor and remarking that Buttigieg was “such a threat” because he was a “homosexual” people could be proud of.

After citing pastor Franklin Graham’s derisive response to Buttigieg and Jacob Wohl’s sexual assault allegations, correspondent Charlotte Alter wrote, “But to some Americans, Buttigieg may just be the man to vanquish America’s demons.”

Time featured Biden on its cover before he announced his 2020 bid, but also while he led other Democrats in the polls. The crowded Democratic field also made an appearance on Time’s cover in February when the magazine detailed how the “biggest field yet” was intent on challenging Trump in 2020. That cover showed Democrats peering into the Oval Office as Trump sat at his desk.

By contrast, many Time covers of Trump have led to cries of negativity. For instance, earlier this year one cover featured a cartoon Trump slinging Twitter birds at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. as she catapulted subpoenas at him.

TIME’S ‘PHENOM’: IS AOC USING THE MEDIA — OR THE OTHER WAY AROUND?

Another, more ambiguous cover, from April, showed Trump smiling while weathering an ominous storm looming over the Capitol. The image appeared after Special Counsel Robert Mueller released his report on the Russia investigation, which stopped short of recommending prosecution for obstruction of justice.

“America has now seen Trump weather a massive investigation led by a widely respected prosecutor,” Time’s Brian Bennett wrote.

Bennett declared the report — which didn’t establish that Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia, either — one of Trump’s “biggest victories” but said Mueller’s verdict wasn’t “nearly as definitive as the president and his allies would claim.” He also wrote that the report didn’t “clear Trump of obstruction” and that his “presidency remains extraordinarily scandal-scarred.”

Some other covers have shown Trump’s face melting; his hair on fire after his first year in office; Trump as a series of wrecking balls; his face composited with that of Russian President Vladimir Putin; and Trump seeing a reflection of himself as a king.

As the conservative IJR Red noted, those seemed to differ from covers of former President Barack Obama.

One of Time’s more controversial covers of the president happened as the administration struggled to deal with criticism over family separations at the southern border. The cover, introduced as a reflection on “Trump’s border separation policy,” included a much-circulated photo of a crying migrant girl who had, in fact, not been separated from her parents.

Time’s editor in chief stood by the cover, saying “our cover and our reporting capture the stakes of this moment.”

CNN’s John Berman: ‘No discernible difference’ between Trump and HBO’s ‘Veep’

CNN anchor John Berman insisted on Thursday that there was “almost no discernible difference” between the rally held by President Trump in Panama City, Fla., on Wednesday night and the satirical HBO comedy “Veep.”

Trump raised some critics’ eyebrows after he laughed off a suggestion from a rallygoer that we should “shoot” illegal immigrants who try crossing the southern border.

“When you have 15,000 people marching up and you have hundreds and hundreds of people and you have two or three border security people that are brave and are great,” Trump told his supporters. “And don’t forget, we don’t let them and we can’t let them use weapons. We can’t. Other countries do. We can’t. I would never do that. But how do you stop these people?”

Then someone shouted “shoot ’em,” causing the president to chuckle and shake his head.

“Only in the Panhandle you can get away with that statement,” Trump reacted. “Only in the Panhandle!”

Berman played that clip from the rally and paired it with a scene from “Veep” in which wildly inappropriate, loose-cannon presidential candidate Jonah Ryan (Timothy Simons) expresses animosity toward immigrants.

“The other real killer is diseases. And how do these diseases get into America? Immigrants,” Ryan said.

One of Ryan’s supporters then shouts “Kill’ em!” prompting the fictional candidate to dial it back slightly.

“Well, we don’t have to kill all of them,” Ryan responded. “I mean, there are some good immigrants — Beyoncé.”

Berman said that he was “struck” by the comparison and stressed that he was “not laughing” at the Trump rally.

“‘Veep’ was shot months ago and there is almost no discernible difference between the events,” Berman told the panel.

His “New Day” co-host Alisyn Camerota added that “Veep” is “supposed to be satire.”

The Washington Post suggested that Trump was “tacitly encouraging extrajudicial killings and brutality against asylum seekers and undocumented immigrants.”

Simmons recently said his performance as Jonah Ryan was inspired by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas.

Fox News Channel topped cable news rivals on Thursday night during its Town Hall event with Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., as CNN continues to settle for third place, according to Nielsen Media Research.

Fox News averaged 1.6 million viewers from 6:30-7:30 p.m. ET during the Klobuchar town hall, which was hosted by Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum. During the same time period, MSNBC averaged 1.5 million viewers and CNN just 759,000.

Klobuchar was also featured on a CNN town hall last month, but her appearance on the struggling network didn’t help its ratings. According to TVNewser, Klobuchar’s CNN event on April 22 averaged only 869,000 viewers – well behind both Fox News and MSNBC viewership during the timeslot. Fox News’ audience for Klobuchar was 85 percent larger in total viewers and 28 percent higher among the key demo compared to her appearance on CNN.

Klobuchar’s appearance on Fox News apparently helped the network top rivals for the remainder of the night.

During the prime-time hours of 8-11 p.m., Fox News averaged three million total viewers compared to 2.4 million for MSNBC and 944,000 for CNN. Fox News also attracted more viewers from the key demo of adults ages 25-54, averaging 536,000 viewers in that category compared to 406,000 for MSNBC and only 245,000 for CNN.

FOX NEWS BEATS MSNBC, CNN COMBINED ON NIGHT CNN HOSTED KIRSTEN GILLIBRAND TOWN HALL

During her appearance on Fox News, Klobuchar said progressives should support her bid for the presidency in 2020 because she is a “proven progressive.”

Many view Klobuchar as a more moderate Democratic presidential candidate among the nearly two dozen hopefuls in the race. During the town hall, that distinction formed the underpinnings of one question from an audience member, who asked why progressives should support the senator and noted her “unwillingness to support” Medicare for all or free college for all.

“Progressives should support me because I’m a proven progressive. The last time I checked, if you want to be a progressive and support progressives, then you are supposed to make progress. All right? And that is what I have done. That it is what I’ve done my whole life,” Klobuchar told the Wisconsin audience.

Meanwhile, at the ratings-challenged CNN, more than 100 employees accepted a voluntary buyout as the company looks to pare its head count as it moves into a luxurious new headquarters in the Hudson Yards area on the West Side of Manhattan.

FOX is “returning to its roots” following a blockbuster deal with Disney, and now stands “at the apex” of the media industry, Executive Chairman and CEO Lachlan Murdoch said Thursday at the company’s first-ever investor day.

FOX is now leaner and stronger, with a focus on news, sports and broadcasting, he told the crowd.

“We have created a company extremely well-positioned for growth,” Lachlan Murdoch said. “FOX is the best brand you could ever want.”

Founder Rupert Murdoch opened up the event by explaining his “new journey” that emerged when Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox became official earlier this year, leaving Fox Sports, Fox News, Fox Television Stations and Fox Broadcasting as a stand-alone company with his son, Lachlan, at the helm.

“The creation of FOX, both from conception and over the past many months of preparation and molding, was designed to endow it with strong assets and unique positions to successfully compete in this rapidly evolving media landscape,” Lachlan Murdoch said.

Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott told investors that it’s currently the “best time” for FOX, saying the cable network has the “incredible honor” of presenting the news to its audience – and viewers trust the content they’re consuming.

Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott said this fiscal year is on track to be Fox News’ highest advertising revenue year ever.

“There are moments where, it seems, as a nation we have stood still to watch together, mourn together and celebrate together. And it’s the coverage of these moments on every platform that has created an unbreakable bond between Fox News and the audience,” Scott said.

Scott told investors that if they only have one takeaway from the presentation, it should be that “America is watching” and ratings data backs up her message.

“We have had tremendous accomplishments at Fox News,” Scott said before explaining that Fox News isn’t just a television channel anymore.

“The Fox News you know today started nearly 23 years ago as a small, linear cable channel. But when we think of our business now, we refer to it as Fox News Media,” she said. “Over the years, we have fundamentally transformed the business.”

Scott said Fox News is now a multi-media brand that includes two fully distributed cable networks and “robust” businesses across digital, mobile, social and direct-to-consumer media.

“The unrivaled strength of our brand and its passionate audience have allowed us to expand our reach while maintaining relevance across all these platforms,” she said. “We have created new monetization models to capitalize on the ever-expanding choices consumers have to watch, interact, listen, read and engage with our content.”

The Fox News CEO then explained that over 200 million people are reached each month between the various Fox News Media platforms – with half coming from outside the linear cable networks.

“This fiscal year is on track to be our highest advertising revenue year ever,” Scott said. “Going forward, we expect advertising to continue to be a driver of business across all platforms.”

While half of the 200 million monthly consumers are coming from places other than linear television, Scott pointed out that Fox News Channel continues to triumph cable news in the ratings department.

“We are No. 1 in total viewing across all of cable, all dayparts, and all genres of programming. From ESPN to HGTV, from morning to night, we dominate,” Scott said. “We got here because the audience trusts us.”

Scott’s presentation indicated that Fox News has an “engaged, upscale” audience and the company owns 100 percent of its content. The network has been

“Fox News is the place American’s turn to when news breaks,” she said as the audience saw a chart showing dominance during major television events such as election nights.

FOX COO John Nallen broke down revenue and expenses, noting that FOX is being operated in a “hallmark lean fashion” from a management perspective.

Bernie Sanders, Ocasio-Cortez’s proposal to cap credit card interest rates unlikely to pass the Senate: Charles Payne

Charles Payne said a new proposal from Bernie Sander and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to put a federal cap on credit card interest rates has little chance of success.

Democratic Socialist Senator and 2020 Democratic candidate for the presidency Bernie Sanders (D-VT) and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) introduced legislation on Thursday to cap credit card interest rates at 15 percent.

Under the proposed legislation, states could establish their own limits.

In an interview on “America’s Newsroom” Payne — host of “Making Money With Charles Payne” on the Fox Business Channel — explained, “This is an industry they’re going to say that did a $113 billion dollars last year. That poorer Americans who have credit cards paid 25 percent interest. Richer Americans pay 17 percent interest. Inherently they’re going to say, it’s obviously unfair.”

OCASIO-CORTEZ, SANDERS TO UNVEIL ‘RADICAL’ PROPOSAL TO TACKLE ‘GREED’ OF BANKING, CREDIT CARD INDUSTRY

Sanders told the Washington Post that the 15 percent cap would be the same as what Congress imposed on credit unions in 1980.

He has historically been a staunch critic of Wall Street throughout his career and Ocasio-Cortez has advocated for increased regulation of Wall Street institutions. The pair appeared together on the campaign trail last year and going after Wall Street is a part of Sanders’ pitch to the American people.

Ocasio-Cortez will introduce the House version of the bill and try to rally her fellow Democrats.

However, the proposal is sure to meet resistance from banks. According to S&P Global Market Intelligence, the industry brought in $113 billion in interest and fees from credit cards last year.

It also has little chance of passing in the Senate, where Republicans hold the majority.

Payne added, “In fact, Bernie Sanders’s Communications Director said Jamie Dimon and Lloyd Blankfein are going to be really, really…they’re really going to hate this bill and we welcome that hatred big time.”

According to Creditcards.com, which has been tracking the data since 2007, interest rates have recently been reaching record levels as the Fed raised key interest rates and the industry prepares for the next big recession.

“I am sure it will be criticized,” Sanders told the Washington Post. “I have a radical idea, maybe Congress should stand up for ordinary people.”
