Gail Huff, Scott Brown's Wife: Sarah Palin Coverage 'Sexist'

Gail Huff, the journalist who is married to Senator Scott Brown, said she thought the media's coverage of Sarah Palin has been sexist.

Huff, who moved to a local, Washington D.C. station when Brown became a Senator, has been a journalist for decades. Speaking at the Newseum on Saturday, she lambasted the media coverage of Palin, especially during the 2008 campaign.

"I thought the coverage of her when she was on the ticket was sexist," Huff said, according to The Hill. "I found it difficult many times to watch. The kind of questions she was asked were very different than the kind of questions McCain was asked."

Huff said that she thinks the press should refrain from covering Palin so much "unless she decides to be a candidate." (The frenzy surrounding Palin's just-released emails show that the media may not be following her advice.)
