Nets Ignore Murdered American in Israel, Praise Military Trans Policy
July 1, 2016
Early Thursday morning news broke that a 13 year girl was brutally murders in Israel, and later that day it was release that she was American and killed by a Palestinian terrorist. As Fox News’ Bret Baier reported on Special Report, “Police say a Palestinian teenager snuck into a Jewish settlement Thursday and stabbed a 13-year-old American girl as she slept in her bed.” But the networks were silent about it that evening, they instead chose to dedicate six minutes and six seconds to Defense Secretary Ash Carter allowing transgender people to openly serve in the military.
CBS’ Josh Elliot was joyful, teasing at the top of Evening News, “A barrier falls. The military lifts its ban on transgender service members.” CBS led the night with the story stating that history was made and, “Transgender people will now be allowed to serve openly, and they will be eligible for any medically necessary care, including surgery.”
