One of the researchers responsible for the black hole “photo” is angry that “Internet trolls” attempted to give credit to multiple scientists for its creation instead of one woman.
As Big League Politics reported yesterday, the mainstream media is attempting to give full credit for the black hole “photo” to Katie Bouman, when it was actually made possible by a team of over 200 scientists from more than 15 countries.
One of the researchers, Andrew Chael, who wrote over 850,000 lines of code in GitHub “model files,” came to her defense, worried that she was not receiving enough credit for the image.
(1/7) So apparently some (I hope very few) people online are using the fact that I am the primary developer of the eht-imaging software library (https://t.co/n7djw1r9hY) to launch awful and sexist attacks on my colleague and friend Katie Bouman. Stop.

Chael wrote that he is concerned the public is using his impressive work to “launch awful and sexist attacks” against Bouman. CNN backed him up with an article claiming “Internet trolls tried to credit a white man for the black hole image”, totally missing the point of many individuals’ criticisms.
For Chael’s part, he too seems inclined to point out that this was not simply Bouman performing a superhuman effort by herself. He lauded her for “pointing out that this was a team effort,” but chastised his new fans, bemoaning their alleged “sexist agenda” against Bouman.
He also noted, for some reason, that he is a “gay astronomer.”
(5/7) out that this was a team effort including contributions from many junior scientists, including many women junior scientists (https://t.co/Gte2sTNLXo). Together, we all make each other's work better; the number of commits doesn't tell the full story of who was indispensable.

Bouman herself made clear on Facebook that she does not deserve full credit for the image, saying that her algorithm was one among many used in its creation. She also noted that various researchers crowded into a room with their computers to generate the image simultaneously, in a move purposely taken to avoid a single researcher receiving a disproportionate amount of credit.
In fact, the New York Times was forced to admit that her initial algorithm that earned her a place on the team was not even used in creating the famous image.
Even after two researchers made clear that this was a joint effort, the media remains hyper focused on Bouman’s contribution, likely because she is a young, female researcher. In their rush to credit Bouman, the media has completely glossed over the other 206 scientists spread across 17 countries who worked diligently to provide the first ever image of a black hole.
By neglecting to mention the rest of the team, the media raises Bouman, who worked on an “imaging subteam”, above the rest of the researchers, and invites observers to draw their own conclusions about why the young woman is receiving such attention.
If pointing out that a woman was part of a larger effort accomplished by more than 200 other researchers, apparently including a gay astronomer, constitutes a “sexist attack,” perhaps CNN and other media outlets should have done their job in the first place by giving credit to the full team of scientists.
CNN Stands by Fake News Hack Brian Stelter After Allegedly Breaching Confidentiality Agreement
Attorney Lin Wood is calling Stelter out.
Attorney Lin Wood, who has represented former Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann in various defamation suits against prominent media entities, is claiming that CNN hack Brian Stelter violated his confidentiality agreement regarding the case.

CNN is not reprimanding Stelter due to his unprofessional and possibly criminal behavior, showing how the fake news company protects globalist frauds:
I state as a matter of provable fact that Brian Stelter is a liar.
If my statement is false, Brian can now sue me for defamation.
Do it, Brian. TRUTH is my defense.

Big League Politics has reported on how CNN was forced to pay off Sandmann after issuing biased coverage against the student after he was accosted by a gin-soaked Indian outside of the Lincoln Memorial in 2019:
Fake news giant CNN settled the lawsuit filed against them by Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann today for an undisclosed sum following their biased coverage against the child last year.
Sandmann’s lawsuit sought $800 million from CNN as well as the Washington Post and NBC Universal for their alleged defamation of the student following the boy’s confrontation with far-left Indian activist Nathan Phillips. The cases against the WaPo and NBC are still active.
“This case will be tried not one minute earlier or later than when it is ready,” said Sandmann’s attorney Lin Wood.
Wood also claims that Gannett, the parent company behind the Enquirer, will be slapped with a lawsuit in the days to come. He says that Sandmann continues to suffer from “emotional distress, damage to reputation and distress to his family” as a result of the mistreatment by the fake news.
Last year, the coverage of Sandmann was a galvanizing moment among the Right against the fake news and the liberal hate machine that never hesitates to destroy a young white man’s life over a pack of lies…
Sandmann’s settlement is another stain on the reputation of the fake news, and he may have more payouts to come in the near future. The smear merchants will likely have to pay dearly, as they have overstepped greatly on this hate hoax against a child.
Recently, Jeff Bezos’ Washington Post rag was forced to give a cash settlement to Sandmann as well. The fake news media is finally being compelled to pay for their unethical reporting.
Sandmann is bragging that he is not finished yet in his crusade to bring accountability to media organs that loathe patriotic Americans.
We have settled with WAPO and CNN.
The fight isn’t over. 2 down. 6 to go.
Don’t hold your breath @jack.

“Thanks to my family and millions of you who have stood your ground by supporting me,” Sandmann added. “I still have more to do.”
Sandmann is showing how the fake news media is vulnerable to push back. Even though CNN refuses to fire Stelter, their credibility is hemorrhaging and the market may punish them for providing misinformation for so long.
