#1...USA Today ‘race and inclusion’ editor fired for controversial tweet about Boulder shooting
A “race and inclusion” editor at USA Today complained on Friday that she was fired after mistakenly tweeting that the Boulder supermarket shooter was another “angry white man” — but she’s blaming the resulting “alt-right” outrage, not just herself. “It’s always an angry white man. always,” ex-editor Hemal Jhaveri had said Monday in her offending tweet — which she admitted in a Medium post on Friday had been “careless.”
“Extremely tired of people’s lives depending on whether a white man with an AR-15 is having a good day or not,” said the tweet, which noted that just days earlier a white gunman had shot up three Atlanta area massage parlors.
The tweet turned out to be inaccurate — police soon identified the Boulder suspect as Syria-born Colorado resident Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa — and Jhaveri soon apologized and deleted her tweet.
But not before the tweet sparked an online onslaught of accusations that she was a race and inclusion editor who is actually a “racist” hater of white men.....“This is not about bias,” she claimed on Medium, “or keeping personal opinions off of Twitter. It’s about challenging whiteness and being punished for it.”
#2...WALL STREET JOURNAL: THE CUOMO SCANDALS, THIS IS CNN
Gov. Andrew Cuomo has a new scandal, and this one involves CNN. The Albany Times Union reports that, early in the Covid pandemic, Mr. Cuomo and Health Commissioner Howard Zucker directed high-level state health officials “to conduct prioritized coronavirus testing on the governor’s relatives as well as influential people with ties to the administration.”
Last spring the governor was often seen bantering on CNN with the host of “Cuomo Prime Time”—his younger brother, Chris. In the epicenter of the Covid-19 pandemic, Andrew and Chris kept their spirits up by making jokes and ribbing each other. The host didn’t ask the governor tough questions about deaths in New York nursing homes.
“We generally do not get involved in the medical decisions of our employees,” CNN spokesman Matt Dornic said Wednesday of the latest controversy. “However, it is not surprising that in the earliest days of a once-in-a-century global pandemic, when Chris was showing symptoms and was concerned about possible spread, he turned to anyone he could for advice and assistance, as any human being would.”
Yet CNN was very much involved in the medical situation of this employee. The network literally made a show of it. MORE AT https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-cuomo-scandals-this-is-cnn-11616783164?mod=searchresults_pos1&page=1
