Left Wing Reporter Gets Mad at Another Left Wing Reporter for Using Wrong Chelsea Manning Pronouns

The social justice brigade is eating itself alive.

A reporter and editor at Mediaite wrote an entire news story Thursday chastising NBC’s Ken Dilanian for referring to Chelsea Manning as “he” and “him” in news segment.

“NBC News reporter Ken Dilanian referred to imprisoned former army intelligence veteran Chelsea Manning, who is a trans woman, as ‘he’ and ‘him’ during a news report on the arrest of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange,” Mediaite’s Tommy Christopher said.

Christopher was perturbed that Dilanian said the following on “MSNBC Live With Hallie Jackson:”

Specifically, Chelsea Manning was an army private stationed in Iraq, he was downloading hundreds of thousands of top secret U.S. government files from the military and from the State Department, and he was sending them to assange [sic] and Wikileaks to make public. As part of those communications, the U.S. Government alleged Manning asked Assange to help him crack a DoD password.

Manning – formerly Bradley – transitioned to a female while imprisoned, and eventually received a pardon from President Barack H. Obama.

Christoper explained the rules for journalists reporting on transgender people, which, of course, are suggestions, not mandates.

“According to the Human Rights Campaign, journalists should ‘Respect transgender people by using the names and pronouns they use in daily life,’ and notes that ‘If you’re a reporter and not sure, the AP Stylebook advises that you should ‘use the pronoun consistent with the way the individuals live publicly,'” he said.

Alternatively, reporters can use whatever words they want, and there’s nothing the Human Rights Campaign or anyone else can do about it.

Robinson is a known curmudgeon. Recently, he was upset that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) used the word “niggardly” – way back in 1986.

Big League Politics reported:

Mediaite writer and editor took to Twitter on Tuesday to complain about the word choice of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in a clip from 1986.

“‘I am not going to be niggardly about funding for daycare…’ – Bernie Sanders 1986,” Tommy Christopher said, quoting Sanders.

“I know it’s not a slur, but I’ve always wondered why a person would choose to say that word, when ‘stingy’ would do just as well.”

Niggardly is a perfectly good English word, though this reporter prefers parsimonious. Perhaps it’s uncomfortable for the middle-aged white liberal crowd wimps among us.

CNN Host Admits He Was “Snookered” By Avenatti After Felony Extortion Conviction

Mainstream media outlets like CNN were instrumental in making Avenatti a political celebrity.

Published

on

CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin admitted he felt “snookered” by disgraced attorney Michael Avenatti after the former political celebrity’s felony conviction for extortion on Friday night.

Toobin struck a penitent tone for his own network’s role in promoting the now-convicted felon. Avenatti was a regular on liberal mainstream media outlets such as CNN and MSNBC throughout 2018, frequently boasting of outlandish lawsuits that were set to finally take down President Trump.

In hindsight, after the “creepy porn lawyer’s” dramatic rise and fall, CNN is largely left with egg on their face for ever having taken him seriously. Toobin admitted this in the segment, showing more reflection than many of his mainstream media colleagues are inclined to undergo.

I feel kind of snookered, because I took him seriously.”

Avenatti has been convicted for a scheme to extort tens of millions of dollars from sporting company Nike. He faces up to decades in prison in upcoming sentencing proceedings, and is currently housed in solitary in New York’s Metropolitan Correctional Center. He’s also set to face even more criminal charges in California, related to accusations he stole lawsuit rewards from his legal clients.

Avenatti’s rise and fall from cable news darling and pugnacious anti-Trump “fighter” to disgraced felon facing a possible life sentence is about as dramatic an arc one could expect to see a public figure undergo.

CNN and MSNBC now face some serious sole searching for their role in promoting the fraud, having taken his boisterous claims at face value for almost a year and even implicitly promoting his ridiculous presidential admiration. At least Toobin appears willing to admit his role in feeding the CPL’s ambitions.
