CBS Execs Ban the Word 'Transgender' From Network's Covenant Massacre Reporting

CBS has banned the use of the term “transgender” from its reporting on the Nashville shooting last Monday, where a gender-confused woman murdered three 9-year-olds and three adults at a Christian elementary school.

According to this, CBS executives moved to nix the word “transgender” from all the network’s reports on the massacre, despite the fact that 28-year-old Audrey Hale publicly identified as a man and used he/him pronouns before she shot up the school and murdered several children.

Because, you know, we wouldn’t want to offend the alphabet crowd.

The network sent an all-office notice to its employees claiming that Hale’s “gender identity has not be confirmed” and has “no known relevance” to the crime - despite being evidence of a clear mental illness - and that any mention of her sex should therefore be ignored.

“The shooter’s gender identity has not been confirmed by CBS News,” the network’s executives told employees Tuesday via a memo obtained by The New York 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.”

“Right now we advise saying: POLICE IDENTIFIED THE SUSPECT AS A 28-YEAR-OLD AUDREY HALE, WHO THEY SHOT AND KILLED AT THE SCENE. And move on to focus on other important points of the investigation, community and solutions,” the memo continued.

Several people close to the memo told the Post the directive confused journalists who argued that Hale’s gender confusion could, in fact, be relevant to why she targeted a Christian preschool and slaughtered kids. But despite the fact that leftist outlets like CBS have no problem stereotyping and vilifying right-learning persons whose political persuasions they don’t like, their journalists aren’t allowed to question - or even mention - a person’s gender delusion in relation to their heinous crime.

One source told the Post they felt that “withholding information is not journalism.”

Another accused the network of pointedly ignoring the “facts of the case” to promote a biased agenda, saying, “Everyone should be invested in understanding what happened. I don’t know how you do that without understanding the full scope of the situation.”

While early CBS reports on the shooting had pointedly ID'd Hale as transgender, all reports following Tuesday's memo left out any mention of it. 

Meanwhile, Nashville police have already stated that Hale did identify as transgender - making CBS’ claim that her gender identity “has not been confirmed” a straight-up lie - and that police are currently investigating whether her gender confusion was in any way related to the shooting, which makes it a very key detail.

It seems that in this case, “irrelevant to the story” is just a smokescreen for “inconvenient to our narrative."
