Who knew? Diversity of those who report the news is as crucial as the news itself
According to leftist thinking of those in charge at the anorexic and hemorrhaging subscriptions* Hillary-endorsing newspaper, hiring based on qualifications is a passé concept. In order to authentically report the news, diversity takes precedent.
This insulting concept invalidates professionals in all walks of life. Having a degree that relates to your line of work is no longer paramount. To be considered a valuable employee it’s imperative you represent a specific ethnicity and have the proper amount of melanin in your skin pigment.
A recent headline, “Representing our diverse community is crucial to telling Arizona’s story. Here’s a look at our staff today,” includes a link to a chart detailing the race and gender of the employees. Each of the newspapers in the Gannett cabal have published the same demeaning stats reflective of staff ethnicity and sexual preferences.
This racial and gender marinated aberration has been gaining momentum as the newspaper routinely showcases minorities with contrived front page coverage with oversize photos, and focuses the entertainment section on black or LBGTQ performers. The lunacy has extended to news reports which increasingly refer to individuals as “the person” rather than “the man” or “the woman.”
From the article:
“For The Arizona Republic and azcentral.com to succeed, we must have an inclusive and diverse workplace where employees are valued and feel empowered.
We must build and sustain a workforce that is reflective of the diversity in the communities we serve. As part of our commitment to an inclusive culture, we will begin annually publishing the makeup of our newsroom staff.”
A more valuable commitment would be to a diversity of ideas rather than the constant barrage of radically leftward skewed news. But that rational concept is unacceptable to the purveyors of vitriolic hatred aimed at President Donald Trump, his dedicated supporters, GOP office holders and candidates. The newspaper, which was stunned when Trump easily defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016, declared it will no longer print pre-election endorsement lists, but doesn’t attempt to conceal its leftist bent on a daily basis. Greg Burton and his diversified staff should write their headlines and craft the articles in advance of the Nov. 3, election. They won’t be able focus when President Trump is reelected and dementia sufferer, Joe Biden can finally stop being exploited by his wife and his party, and return to his basement bunker.
