    Howard Kurtz says it is hard to imagine a man would have been criticized like Jill Abramson was, but he offers no evidence.

    Americans are uniquely heroic in running to help when tragedy strikes. Maddening media driven patriotic drivel. How about the Japanese tsunami in 2011, the mass shootings in Norway in 2011, the London underground train bombings in 2005, the Indonesian earthquake and tsunami in 2004, the Jews in European concentration camps, on and on, country after country. Did these people not rush to help their fellow countrymen? Running to help is a human reflex not an American trait. Can Americans really only feel good about helping their fellow man if they are repeatedly puffed up as the only ones with such instincts; like we have some extra gene added to our DNA upon birth on U.S. soil. This media drama is bigoted, divisive, and counterproductive.

    That Jill Abramson is a female does not exempt her from criticism. Blowing up at meetings is a good indication she has a problem.
