Journalism today

Via Instapundit: An award-winning journalist who broke the story of the group of Jewish women ejected from an LGBTQ march in Chicago last month has been reassigned to non-journalistic duties at the paper which ran the original report, the Windy City Times.

Gretchen Rachel Hammond — whose June 24 story caused a national storm after she detailed how three women flying Jewish Pride flags embossed with the Star of David were instructed to leave the gathering by organizers from the Dyke March Collective — confirmed to The Algemeiner on Monday that while she was still employed by the paper, she was not presently engaged in its reporting and writing operations.

“At this time, I have not been fired from Windy City Times, but I have been transferred to working full time for the sales department,” Hammond explained in an emailed statement. “The reasoning is an internal matter and I have been instructed not to comment about it even to close friends. Given my present situation, I must comply with this instruction.”

More data needed. But since the reporter is keeping their mouth shut, I guess we will not be getting more information.

I'm very weirded out by the 'Queers for Palestine' groups and similar gay groups that defend or outright support sharia/jihad/islamification. It seems so bizarre to be against religious fundamentalism, but to have a exception for Jews- yes yes Zionism has its own concerns for us freedom lovers, but get back to me when they can have a pride parade in Iran, or in Gaza, or in the west bank.

LGBLTs are anti-semites. Why is this news? They are are anti-religious in general.

It's the Feminist Sisterhood.

Once the accepted position is set, all must adhere.
