At a “Women in the World” event in New York City last night, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton expressed her view of a double standard in how women are talked about in the media, Politico’s Maggie Haberman reports.
“There is a double standard,” Clinton said. “The double standard is alive and well, and I think in many respects the media is the principal propagator of its persistence,” she added.
She added advice for women, suggesting they not take criticism personally, but instead seriously. Clinton’s comments about the media’s gender double standard come a day after a new Women’s Media Center report showed a different issue when it comes to females and the media: a wide gap between the number of female media figures and their male counterparts.

David Gregory has heard the rumors about being ousted as moderator of “Meet the Press,” but chalks it up to being just part of the business.
“This comes with the territory. I understand it,” Gregory tells The Huffington Post. “I see speculation out there. I just try to pay attention to the stuff I know is real.”
“I cannot be more declarative about David — [he] is our guy, is going to be our guy, and we are really happy with him,” said Wallace in her first interview since adding the Sunday show to her portfolio. “I know there continues to be lots of hubbub, but I’m in every single meeting: There is no internal hubbub.”
Last week, NBC News President Deborah Turness held a meeting with Gregory and his EP to discuss the state of the show. This past Sunday, “Meet the Press” was in third place, losing ground year-over-year in total viewers, down -6%.
Flashback to 1994, when the Internet was just five years old and David Gregory was a reporter at KCRA, the NBC affiliate in Sacramento. Tasked with explaining the “widespread interest” in “going online with the Internet,” a young Gregory reports “the possibilities along the Internet are limitless and the demand has only just begun.”
“While the service has always been able to offer facts about the world or the weather, coming in 1995 — that’s right, purchasing power,” Gregory says. “You can buy such things as chocolate on the Internet, or even order pizza from this electronic storefront.”
Other topics Gregory sheds light on: the Internet yellow pages, chat rooms and “electronic mail,” which is used for “bypassing more expensive postage.” Watch after the jump. Read more

Fox News Channel’s Chris Wallace called out the White House this morning over David Gregory‘s exclusive interview with National Security Advisor Susan Rice on “Meet the Press.” This was Rice’s first appearance on one of the Sunday public affairs shows since being named the president’s National Security Advisor.
“I wanted to ask the Obama Administration about the crisis in Ukraine, but they decided to put National Security Advisor Susan Rice on only one show today in her first Sunday appearance since 2012 when she blamed the Benghazi terror attack on reaction to an anti-Islam video,” Wallace said. “Of course FOX has led the way in questioning how the administration handled Benghazi. Perhaps Susan Rice didn’t want to answer the tough questions we would have asked.”
For his part, Gregory did ask Rice about those Sunday show appearances back in September of 2012. “When you were last here, Ambassador Rice, it was an eventful morning on the story of Benghazi and the horrible attack on our compound there,” said Gregory. “We haven’t seen you in a while. As you look back at your involvement in all of that, do you have any regrets?”
In her first network Sunday public affairs show appearance since becoming National Security Adviser, Susan Rice will go one-on-one with David Gregory tomorrow on “Meet the Press.” Rice will discuss the chaos and bloody tug of war in Ukraine which overnight took a new turn. Rice will also discuss America’s strained relationship with Russia. Until 2010, Rice’s husband Ian Cameron was the executive producer of NBC’s Sunday show rival, “This Week with George Stephanopoulos,” which tomorrow will be hosted by Martha Raddatz.
