President Obama: Why don't you read more women?

It's good to see people getting upset by important issues...
President Obama: Why don't you read more women?
"Now the fact that the president of the United States apparently doesn't read women writers is not the greatest crisis facing the arts, much less the nation -- but it's upsetting nevertheless. As I suspect Obama would agree, matters of prejudice are never entirely minor, even when their manifestations may seem relatively benign."

The Daily Beast isn't upset (WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE) but they do have a nice little quote: "If the president of the United States manages time for fiction, why can’t we?"

At First I Thought This Was An Onion Piece...

People get upset over the littlest, most ridiculous things. People can read whatever authors they choose to read. There are fabulous women writers out there, but I could care less that President Obama doesn't read them.

With all the important women's issues out there, this is what the Salon author chooses to concentrate on? Please.
