Real Men

A short story, but long in implication:

In the conversation with HuffPost, [Norah] O’Donnell revealed some of her own thoughts on women and some of the difficulties she has faced as a television reporter.

Work-life balance is a topic O’Donnell knows very well. She spoke candidly about feeling “embarrassed” that she had another child 13 months after having twins. She said she worried about being the “pregnant lady at work” and missing out on any opportunities. Instead, O’Donnell worked throughout her pregnancy and covered the 2008 Democratic primary.

“I was on set all day and at midnight [I was told] Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann … were tired and wanted to go home. So then the pregnant lady stayed on until 2 in the morning,” O’Donnell laughed.

Isn’t that special?
