Interview With a Law Professor, Hiding In the Christian Closet | Main | AoSHQ Podcast: Guest, @Popehat
April 03, 2015

So, A Richmond VA "Reporter" Reported the Memories Pizza Fund For Fraud, "Just in Case" (Wink, Wink)

Her -- I think her -- twitter page says that her interests include "helping the world."

Helping the world includes reporting as fraudulent a crowdfunding effort for a Christian family put out of business by leftwing hate.


Drew said something like "this rule on our side against no headhunting sucks, as they're hunting heads, and we can't push back."

Well, my own rule is not "no headhunting." My own rule is more nuanced. I would not get someone fired for something having nothing to do with their job.

But this "Alix Bryan" person is supposedly some kind of "reporter," and yet is plainly behaving like the very worst of the pack-hunting leftwing #hactivist lynch mobbers. She should not be working for the media -- or she should be suspended, and forced to write an apology to her viewers.

Alix Bryan would not be disciplined for something that has nothing to do with her job. This has plenty to do with her job. She is a "reporter," or what we call a "reporter" now, gleefully lodging false criminal complaints against people she has political disputes with, then bragging about it on their twitter feed.

This is also, obviously, a case of a reporter getting involved in the story, and Making Herself the Story. She lodged the complaint -- if anything ever came of it (hypothetically), she herself would be a central part of the story.

She simply does not seem to care about the rules of journalism, nor of even being familiar with them.

She is an activist -- and she should be working for a company whose mission goals are clearly activist in nation. As far as I know, her employer, @CBS6 in Richmond, still pretends to not be a leftist pressure/#hactivist group though, given their choice in staff, this pretense seems paper thin.

Now if she can write an essay explaining why people charged with reporting the news fairly and without favor or prejudice should not be taking an active role in leftwing #Hacktivism, and if it seemed that she really understood where she had erred and really comprehended that she must attempt to be something resembling professional in her conduct, then maybe she could go on working there.

Sadly, of course, she is in fact the typical reporter these days.

But you can't be caught doing this. They all do this, but only some are so clumsy or carefree to get caught doing this.

By the way, she gets very upset when you include her employer, @CBS6, in tweets about this. She keeps insisting "My work has nothing to do with this."

Pretty ironic. You know who else formerly thought their work was a separate issue from their political beliefs on gay marriage? The O'Connor family of Memories Pizza.

This is not "headhunting," to me. The media are more over political actors than the Democrat Party itself.

I object these political tactics -- smearing, ginning up group hatred, demands for firing and losses of jobs -- applied to non-political people.

But the media mostly are political people. To say we shouldn't go after their jobs when they commit massive transgressions is like claiming we shouldn't go after Harry Reid when he does.

Answer: CBS6 says this was just a "personal" statement by Bryan.


Correction: I thought she deleted this tweet because I couldn't find it in her timeline myself, and Ben Howe seems to have encountered the same difficulty. But a commenter points me to it, and it is there.

So she did not delete this tweet, it appears. I apologize for the error.
