This. And of course the broader media in general has picked it up and given it waaaaaay too much air time in support of one of their own.
What is strikes me most about this is the fact that we all know she and every other TV personality in the country *routinely* receive threats, complaints, and other general crackpot emails the contents of which would be considered far more 'bullying' than the one she singled out.
So yeah...I'm gonna go with the "hear me roar" aspect.
