Despite that the killer in Nashville who murdered Christian children called herself transgender, the woke left-wingers at CBS has warned its reporters NOT to call her a transgender person.
This is how the left-wig media places its political agenda above the reporting of the news.
Per the New York Post:
Top executives at CBS News have banned staffers from using the word “transgender” when reporting on the Nashville shooter — despite the fact that police have said Audrey Hale was just that and cited it as a key point in the case, The Post has learned.
“The shooter’s gender identity has not been confirmed by CBS News,” the network’s executives insisted in a Tuesday memo obtained by The Post. “As such, we should avoid any mention of it as it has no known relevance to the crime. Should that change, we can and will revisit.”
The CBS News directive was delivered on a Tuesday morning editorial call by Ingrid Ciprian-Matthews, the executive vice president of newsgathering, and Claudia Milne, the senior vice president of standards and practices, according to sources close to the Tiffany Network.
The directive was discussed on a company conference call where even the left-wing reporters pushed back, the idea was so absurd.
“This is absurd because the police identified Hale as transgender,” one CBS insider said. “If the cops didn’t address it, maybe you could avoid it, but withholding information is not journalism.”
The fact is, not one of these legacy media companies care about “journalism.” They only care to make sure that the product they offer the public furthers the Democrats’ left-wing political goals.
They. Are. All. Liars.
