SUNY Purchase Journalism Professor Donna Cornachio Discusses Politics On Regional News Network

Donna Cornachio in red on Regional News Network Discussing the Women’s Vote

Far be it from me to question why Regional News Network would have a panel of five men and one woman to discuss the issue of the women’s vote, but at least the woman they invited on there was as sharp as a whip.

That would be my colleague, Assistant Professor of Journalism Donna Cornachio, who was on a segment hosted by Richard French Thursday to discuss recent comments by Indiana Senate candidate Republican Richard Mourdock who said during a debate that “even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that is something that God intended to happen.”

These remarks follow comments made back in August by Missouri Republican Rep. Todd Akin who defended his no-exceptions abortion policy by saying “legitimate rape” rarely causes pregnancy.

Prof. Cornachio did not pull her punches, saying: “I think the question is, ‘Is the Republican party hazardous to women’s health?'”

She also went on to praise President Obama for being “brilliant in what he has done in that he is making the issue of birth control and abortion a pocketbook issue, one about economics.”

Among the other guests on the segment were Dominic Carter, a former host of a much-admired political show on NY 1 who went down in flames in 2009 after charges that he beat his wife, although he was cleared when his case was appealed. Just saying.

Fantastic job, Donna.
