Web Exclusive: Hillary Clinton and the double standard in the media

In the video above, Brian Stelter talks with CNN's newest political analyst: Politico senior political reporter Maggie Haberman.

"The double standard is alive and well, and I think in many respects the media is the principal propagator of its persistence." A powerful critique of the media from the woman who may very well be the Democratic nominee in 2016: Hillary Clinton. She spoke at the Women in the World Summit earlier this week, where her comments on sexism and gender bias had many people asking: is there still a double standard in the coverage of women in the media?

The fifth annual Women in the World Summit kicked off on Thursday, where Clinton, along with IMF managing director Christine LaGarde, participated in a conversation about their experiences as women in power. When asked what advice she would give young women who want to "rise up in the world," Clinton spoke about how to handle criticism:

"You should take criticism seriously because you might learn something, but you can’t let it crush you. You have to be resilient to keep moving forward despite whatever the personal setbacks and even insults that come your way might be. That takes a sense of humor about yourself and others, believe me this is hard-won advice...that I am now putting forth here."

    Clinton drew a line between her own massive wealth and that of other wealthy people.
    “But they don’t see me as part of the problem,” she said, “because we pay ordinary income tax, unlike a lot of people who are truly well off..."
    Enough said as she continues to distance herself from the Public...
