Accuracy in Media

The most glaring omission in Tucker Carlson’s interview of the human oddity known as Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner was the failure to seek comment on the transgender traitor by the name of Bradley/Chelsea Manning. This is the former U.S. Army analyst scheduled for release from prison next month because former President Barack Obama commuted his/her sentence for Russian-style espionage.

Jenner, a former male Olympic champion, is now a spokesman for the “trans community” that includes espionage agent Bradley/Chelsea Manning. So what about Manning? What did Manning’s gender confusion and mental problems have to do with his/her espionage against the United States?

Will Manning get a “courage” award in the same way that Jenner was honored by ESPN for a biological transformation through chemicals and surgery from masculine to feminine?

We understand that the Jenner appearance on Fox News was a cheap publicity stunt, designed by Jenner to sell her new book, and for the cable channel to herald Tucker Carlson’s new show, a replacement for the “O’Reilly Factor” and its fired host, Bill O’Reilly. Still, there was an opportunity for Tucker to ask about one of the major espionage cases of our time. He blew it.

In his recent remarks at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, CIA Director Mike Pompeo described Manning essentially as an agent of Russia through his association with WikiLeaks, which functions on behalf of Russian and other anti-American interests. Pompeo said, “WikiLeaks walks like a hostile intelligence service and talks like a hostile intelligence service. It has encouraged its followers to find jobs at CIA in order to obtain intelligence. It directed Chelsea Manning in her theft of specific secret information. And it overwhelmingly focuses on the United States, while seeking support from anti-democratic countries and organizations.”

Pompeo raises more questions than he answers. How many more insider spies like Manning are there? Are the WikiLeaks followers at the CIA among the agency’s transgender work force? What, if anything, will Pompeo do to purge the questionable hires at the CIA that were made under the reign of Obama CIA director John Brennan, an advocate of “diversity” who laid out a multi-year plan to hire gays and transgenders?

Pompeo’s comments about Manning and the insider spy threat were unusual because he had been asked during his confirmation hearings by Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) about the agency’s gay and transgender employees. “You have my assurance that every employee will be treated in a way that is appropriate and equal,” Pompeo responded.

Of course, the word “appropriate” leaves the door open for dealing with traitors in the CIA in a special manner.

WikiLeaks declared “Victory” after Manning’s sentence was commuted, while former CIA/NSA analyst Edward Snowden said, “Thanks, Obama.” Snowden is a traitor who fled to Russia after disclosing classified information.

So does this mean that Obama is an agent of Russia? In this case, he is clearly serving Russian interests.

At the time of Manning’s commutation, CNN reported that WikiLeaks “is at the center of the storm over alleged Russian hacking of Democratic servers during the election, and Assange is being accused of directly subverting American democracy.”

Here was a case of Obama openly assisting a de facto Russia agent and his pro-Russian handlers. Of course, that’s not the way CNN put it. Instead, Obama had come “under intense pressure from LGBT groups that have been stalwart supporters throughout his political career to show eleventh hour compassion towards Manning,” CNN reported.

So the fact that Obama pleased the LGBT community with his “compassionate” decision makes everything all right and eliminates the need for informed speculation about Obama serving Russian interests.

Carlson should have asked Jenner about Manning’s role as a transgender hero.

Jenner, a rich reality TV star who lives in Malibu, can pay for her fancy clothes, which were on display in the Diane Sawyer special on ABC. She can pay for chemicals and surgeries to complete the “transition” to female.

It’s been different for Manning. Taxpayers have picked up the bill.

During his/her time in prison, according to The New York Times, Manning wears female prison undergarments, including a sports bra, and “subdued cosmetics.” In early 2015, the paper reported, he/she was allowed “to get speech therapy to feminize the tone and pitch of her voice and began cross-sex hormone therapy.”

These perks came about because Manning’s legal team at the ACLU sued for the benefits.

Subsequently, Obama’s Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter announced unilaterally, without Congressional input or approval, that the Pentagon would start paying for transgender surgeries for Armed Services personnel.

The situation is so extreme that West Point hosted a Transgender Day of Remembrance, organized by the Army’s Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Equal Opportunity. Judicial Watch disclosed that Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense Amanda Simpson, a former test pilot named Mitchell, spoke at the event, at a cost of $1,099.92.

The Fox News publicity stunt with Caitlyn Jenner could have produced some real news, if only Carlson had asked about the Manning case and others like it. Instead, he permitted Jenner to say that she wished President Donald Trump would go further in his support for LGBT rights.

Carlson called Jenner “the world’s most famous transgender person.” This designation may not last for long.

When Manning gets out of prison in May, can we expect an appearance on “Tucker Carlson Tonight?” If Carlson is struggling to get O’Reilly-type ratings, you can bet on it.

    Spy of our time ? Is this writer on crack laced with hate ? I’d say Manning served her time – let her go, she was a dumb kid that made a bad mistake – as for the writer, asked yourself why you hate transgender people so much

  • Studentenviro

    It seems the writer is making the case that Manning being transgender somehow equates as a factor in the crime she committed. By extension he is implying that anyone in a position of having secret information and is transgender is automatically a security risk.He further implies that for this reason the government should crack down on such people. First, there is zero evidence that Manning’s crimes had any association with her being transgender. Second there is zero evidence that being transgender is a security risk. However, there is evidence that writer has a problem understanding basic English when he writes such contrived articles as this in a publication called “Accuracy in Media”.

  • HazumuOsaragi

    I concur with the other commenters who suggest that the writer is starting with conclusion first, and then arguing to support that thesis. The problem is that the sense of felt gender only matches up with the genitalia 59 out of 60 times. And it’s not a binary, but a spectrum.

    The Williams Institute has recently said that the incidence of transgender is 1 in about 166. This is where the mismatch between the felt sense of gender and the genitalia is strong enough that the individuals choose to go against society’s gender policing to be who they really are, rather than who society’s gender police tell them they have no choice but to be.

    I suspect that those who are the most vehemently (and often violently) against the 1-in-166 who are cross-gendered are ashamed that they are attracted to some aspect of the cross-gendered person. Note the article authors’ constant use of ‘he/she’ and ‘him/her’ to refer to Pvt. Manning. It’s a lot of work going into strongly maintaining a personal boundary between the writer and Manning.

    What must terrify the article author is that there is physiological, structural reasons for one being transgender:

    Sexual Hormones and the Brain: An Essential Alliance for Sexual Identity and Sexual Orientation Garcia-Falgueras A, Swaab DF Endocr Dev. 2010;17:22-35

    The fetal brain develops during the intrauterine period in the male direction through a direct action of testosterone on the developing nerve cells, or in the female direction through the absence of this hormone surge. In this way, our gender identity (the conviction of belonging to the male or female gender) and sexual orientation are programmed or organized into our brain structures when we are still in the womb. However, since sexual differentiation of the genitals takes place in the first two months of pregnancy and sexual differentiation of the brain starts in the second half of pregnancy, these two processes can be influenced independently, which may result in extreme cases in trans-sexuality. This also means that in the event of ambiguous sex at birth, the degree of masculinization of the genitals may not reflect the degree of masculinization of the brain. There is no indication that social environment after birth has an effect on gender identity or sexual orientation.

  • Dianne S

    The fact that Chelsea Manning is transgender is utterly irrelevant. The writer brings it up only because he or she knows that sensational headlines grab readers.

  • NC91

    why did you remove my comment about “no mention of Scooter Libby or David Petraeus?”-2 traitors pardoned by Bush.

  • jug

    Transgender has absolutely nothing to do with the original problem here.
    However, it has everything to do with the spy’s sentence being commuted!
    THAT had to do with Obumble’s love for every sexual deviancy possible.
    The writer wasn’t expressing hate, he was just telling it like it is, without today’s sick PC crap included!

    Why does a PC sex change earn anyone a 75 percent reduction in legitimately imposed prison time?

  • Cliff undercuts the foundation of his thesis by throwing in the falsehood that Edward Snowden is a traitor. Snowden and also Assange and Wikileaks have enormously helped Americans as well as citizens and leaders of other nations. By definition, a traitor is someone who does harm. Protecting the rights of citizens against encroachments by their government is legitimate whistleblowing, which is protected by law.

  • SFh

    No one should be considered a minority deserving of preferential treatment, because of his or her chosen sexual perversion, their so-called “gender identity”or the types of sexual acts in which they engage. These are all chosen behaviors. Take this thought process to its natural progression; what would prevent some activist judge from ruling that those who practice prostitution, transvestitism, pedophilia or bestiality are part of this class deserving of special protection because of their sexual orientation?

    Just because a man thinks, believes and feels that he is a woman, does not make him a woman, any more than if he thinks, believes and feels that he is a dog, even when he can bark and chases squirrels with the best of them, makes him a dog. Your gender is determined at conception. It is based upon medical and biological fact. These people who claim to be the opposite sex are delusional. They are as crazy as a bed bug. They are sin sick.

    “For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing [s]indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil;” (Romans 1:26-28)

    Practicing immoral conduct does not confer a person with a special minority status. A moral wrong doesn’t make a civil right.

  • Colorado Conservative

    Cliff, please do NOT refer to Jenner as a she. He will never be a female no matter what hormones he ingests or mutilating surgeries he undergoes. HE will always and forever have XY DNA, which is that of a male. When you or the media refers to transgenders in the pronoun of the sex they imagine themselves to be you only promulgate the lie and delusion.

  • richardwicks

    Traitor?

    He (she, whatever) swore and oath to the Constitution and beyond that has an obligation to abide by the Geneva Conventions. Manning isn’t a traitor, the US is run by traitors. Stop supporting them you pathetic suckups.

  • Astroterf

    Gibberish. Crack laced with hate? Are you 12 years old or something?

    TG as a mainstream fad is on the wane mostly because TG activists and TG crazy media are some of the most pushy, obnoxious, demanding people on the net. Please keep commenting Elin, because no one falls for this kind of hokey attempt at emotional manipulation and it will make more and more people turn away from your cause. Strangers on the net must soul search themselves for their “hate” because you are a whiny little brat and demand it? Go fuck zirself.

    Smart people know that “gender identity” has about as much weight as flat earth theory and TGs need to stop using intersex people who have nothing to do with trans to prop up their shitty arguments about the gender spectrum. Hobbies, likes and clothing do not a bio sex make. In fact one of the major associations for Intersex people has repeatedly asked TG activists to stop co-opting their medical issues yet TG activists have no sense of boundaries and are generally hyperbolic, demanding and they freak the fuck out and try to ruin people’s lives when organizations don’t immediately bow down to them.

    T only has momentum so long as it’s attached to the LGB and many gays are getting tired of the gendurr shtick. If they kick the nipping dog that is TG off the gay gravy train that shit will collapse overnight. If you want to do some good, go complain to the corporations and news media that cynically exploit TG for their own gain. No one has to listen to you, so if you actually want people to care you are going to have to keep your whiny demands for soul searching to a minimum and quit pretending that everything you disagree with is “hate”. It honestly dilutes the word to the point of meaninglessness.

  • Elin

    So you are apart of the LGB ? If so, I have to LMAO ……. we are suppose to believe the the LGB Population is born that way but the T Population not ? As for our need to be attached to the Gay Community, you don’t know your history – the T supported the LGB Crowd for years and got stabbed in the back by them – we don’t need the LGB Crowd, we are visible now – no thanks to the LGB Crowd that let us
    March with them – but never actually helped us in the end – we got her ALL BY OURSELVES – and the L is the ONLY reason the G made it as 99% of Americans are okay with L but still find the G Disgusting

    You are a Hater – but guess what ? I don’t need your approval that collect my rights

    As for Manning, which you forgot because your consumed with Hate or a Closet TG hating your self – my previous comment stands

  • Elin

    Jenner is a She – why do you care ? How does Jenner’s view of herself effect you ?

    It’s 2017 – come out of the Cave – the world is leaving you behind …… oh, and the planet is older than 2,000 years old and the Bible was the 1st edition of the National Enquirer……. Women talks to talking snake – man lives in fish’s belly ……. Gender is in the Brain ….. not your Pants …. Look it up and have your teacher read it to you

  • Elin

    Her Sentence was ridiculous – it was as simple as that – She confessed – served 7 years – that’s enough

    As for the illusion that only the Straight Community are legit and have Rights and the rest of us are Sexual Deviants …. well ……. Bigotry & Stupidity equals Hate – You might try to live and let live – 50% of America Hates You for being a Right Wing Bigot ….. But you think your right ….. At least the Left never tries to take people’s rights away – that’s always the Religious Right

  • Elin

    Bingo

  • Elin

    Stop …… your being intelligent ……. Bigots can’t read at this level – Lol

    If everyone thought as carefully as you write – wow what a world we would have

  • Elin

    That’s over the Top – You have NO IDEA, and neither do I, of what information these people have when they make a decision – mistakes are made, but to date, I have NOT seen a Blood Thrusting Man in the Oval

    And just where is this Mythical Ethical Nation of Peace and Perfect Justice today or in History you are measuring the US against ?

    The Wars in the Middle East were mistake – But ask the rest of the world who we saved twice last century if America are Nazi’s

    Love it or Leave it – be apart of the Solution – Run for Office

  • Elin

    Drop the God Crap – By the way ….. whose God ?

    We are not asking for special privileges but demanding our equal rights – you know …. the ones you think are just for White, Cis Gender Bigoted Straight People ?

    Get over it – we now have the power your crowd once held – we intend to use it to have the Rights AND PROTECTION’s from stupid people who believe in the Bible – Religious Idiots are the greatest danger to society

  • Elin

    Damn Right !

  • jug

    The left “never tries to take people’s rights away”?

    You just blew your complete credibility!

    Seven years for endangering the whole country? I can remember when that was a death sentence! Still should be!

  • HazumuOsaragi

    The scary thing is, if someone has an IQ of 100, that means that roughly half of the people on the planet have IQs less than that.

  • richardwicks

    That’s over the Top – You have NO IDEA, and neither do I, of what information these people have when they make a decision

    I know what the Geneva Convention is, and the definition of a crime against humanity, and a war crime.

    We have war criminal scum infesting our government and our military, and like a cancer, they need to be removed, not enshrined. Manning did her duty. She acted properly and correctly and bravely.

    It’s a pity so many cowardly scum exist in our military. We certainly have the capacity to be the greatest nation on Earth, but not as long as we have Nazis embedded within our government and military and scum like you excusing it.

  • richardwicks

    Shhh! You cannot acknowledge that the main problem of the United States today, is that traitors run the nation and have a propaganda media to help them do it.

  • Elin

    What Rights are you worried about losing ? The Right to take a AR15 into a Elementary School and Fire away ?

    The Left is about expanding Civil Rights for ALL !

    I am not against Guns – own Two – but enough is enough with Assault Weapons

    The Death Peanlity is a waste of time – Cost too much – Stupid Policy

    Lock them up for Life & be done with it

    Here’s your Right Wings great efforts since election

    Pass more stupid Bathroom Laws

    Stop Meals on Wheels for Old Ladies

    Give the Rich more Tax Breaks

    And now make it okay to screw people with pre exiting conditions

    All so the Rich People can have more

    Trump is a Bozo and the Republicans are Bigots

    Come on 2020

  • jug

    Typical liberal Bull Crap!
    No one has any “right” to take an AR 15, (it’s not an “assault rifle!), into any school and “fire away”! (Such drivel makes you sound totally crazy!)

    “The left is all about expanding Civil Rights for ALL”!
    Again, you sound totally crazy!
    The left only wants special rights for perverts, scuzballs, illegals, (which are by definition lawbreakers), terrorists and other dangerous people!
    Essentially, they, (you), are following Saul Alinski’s Rules for radicals, or the Communist manifest. The road map to taking down any free sovigerin nation and replacing it’s government with Communism!

    THEN, you will see just how much freedom or rights you are going to have.
    To them, the end, Communism, justifies the means!
    NK, Cuba, Venezuela, Russia, China, just name it!
    No freedom or “rights” anywhere!

    Death penalty useless? Stupid? Expensive?
    Expensive as in killing again, after release, escape???????
    “Just lock them up for life”!
    Yeah and pay not only board and room for the next 50/60 years, but better health care than honest individuals can afford! Including things like sex changes!
    Oh my God! Just what someone incarcerated for life really needs, let alone deserves!! Crap!

    Oh, the STUPID bathroom laws were created by the last perverted administration!
    They had been functioning safely and we’ll for eons up until the mentally and sexualy ill derived power in the last administration!

    Trump has done more good in his first 100 days than the crooked, lying communist/muslim did in 8 years! His agenda was to destroy western civilization and thank God he failed in EVERYTHING he laid his hands on!

    I take that back, he did permanently get rid of 2 or 3 scuzeballs that he previously had relationships with, whom he was scared might make trouble for him, if they weren’t already! Shades of Kim Sung un!

    Hopefully, by the time you are 80 years old, you will have become at least a bit smarter!

  • richardwicks

    It’s current year X, accept issue Y.

    It’s 2017, we finally have a police state to keep us safe, welcome to the modern world. Sure is better than having any privacy. I’m certain that will never be misused by Stasi Germany, Nazi Germany, Communist Russia, or the dictatorship of Iran under the Shah..

    You can justify anything with your specious argument.

    I don’t care what Jenner considers himself, but it’s ludicrous for people like you to insist everybody adopt your stupid definitions.

    For example “colored people” is now a “racist term”, but “people of color” isn’t even though they are identical in meaning and the only difference is word order which is poor grammar. Just ridiculous that people think it’s entirely acceptable to define what is acceptable speech over absolutely trivial issues, just because they couldn’t make it through the book 1984 or Brave New World.

  • Elin

    Cowards ? I served, did you ? The Military are not cowards, they are a collection of us who sacrafice a portion if not all of our Lives & Serve

    Again …… In History, where is this Mythical Perfect Nation you have held the US up too ? You sound like a burned out aging 60’s whack job cowardly hippie

    Get in front of me and call me a coward – the Geneva Convention will not save your Nose from being altered across your face …..

    Hate the Country ? Leave

  • Elin

    Trump is a Bozo – Period ….. Right Wing Nut Jobs are finishing their last stand – there are not enough stupid bigots left to vote then in again / besides, after Trumpcare is enacted – all the people in Red States will die from no healthcare

    I’ll live in the Blue States with Healthcare – and laugh at dumb people like you who die from Trumpcare

    Can’t wait for the Mid Terms – Your F@&34ed

  • Elin

    Traitor’s ? You mean like Comrade Trump & Flynn ? Putin’s Bestie’s ?

    Trump is a Traitor & should face a Firing Squad along with Flynn

    Comrade Trump …. Your Hero …..

  • richardwicks

    Traitor’s ? You mean like Comrade Trump & Flynn ? Putin’s Bestie’s ?

    No, I mean actual traitors – Neocons. People who ignore the Constitution and break their oath of office. The people that have lied the United States in war after war after war since Iraq – the wars they can’t win one of. The Neocon fascist lunatics that are threatening war with Russia and China – if the US can’t beat a bunch of nomads in a desert after 16 years of fighting in Afghanistan, what makes you think that can win a real war with China and Russia?

    Trump is a Traitor & should face a Firing Squad along with Flynn

    Shit, it Trump were an agent of Russia, I’d be breathing a sigh of relief.

    Comrade Trump …. Your Hero …..

    Dude – communism died out in Russia in the early 1990s. That was 27 years ago.

    Putin is one of the better leaders in the world today, at least everything out of his mouth isn’t a lie, and his country isn’t expansionist. When Georgia attacked Ossetia, and Ossetia asked for help from Russia, the operation was clean and quick, it took 5 hours for Russia to drive Georgia out. Of course, the US at the time was screaming “Russian aggression” but Ossetia is still an independent country.

    I can see straight through the propaganda. I’m heavily familiar with the methods. You’re either a propagandist outright, or a useful idiot. Doesn’t matter, I can’t have a genuine conversation with you.

  • richardwicks

    Cowards ? I served, did you ?

    Oh hell no! What? Get my guts splattered all over the sand over lies while my nation is in violation of the Geneva Conventions, while I get orders to torture people in Guantanamo Bay, and just scape goats go to prison??

    I’m no fool. I wouldn’t join the military at this point. It’s an offensive force run by incompetents that haven’t been able to win a war since World War II. Why would I join up with that? Why would you?

    The Military are not cowards, they are a collection of us who sacrafice a portion if not all of our Lives & Serve

    You’re a mercenary for corporations now. The reason the United States is in Syria is in order to establish a pipeline for Genie Energy in the Golan Heights, land occupied by Irael but owned by Syria.

    Again …… In History, where is this Mythical Perfect Nation you have held the US up too ?

    Who said anything about perfection? The United States has become the 4th Reich, that’s about as far from perfection as you can get. The US right now is in Afghanistan growing poppies for heroin. Think that the Opium Wars ended in China?

    You sound like a burned out aging 60’s whack job cowardly hippie

    Well, you sound indoctrinated and uneducated. I am certainly not part of the WORST generation this nation has ever seen. The Boomers were the children of the men that beat the fascists, now they openly accept fascism.

    Get in front of me and call me a coward – the Geneva Convention will not save your Nose from being altered across your face …..

    Listen, if we came to blows, I wouldn’t be an idiot about it.

    Hate the Country ? Leave

    I don’t hate the country, I hate the criminal that run the country.

    You fools are more than happy to sell your kids into slavery all the while being fooled by naked obvious propaganda. Find those weapons of mass destruction in Iraq yet? Do you even know what the mission of that war was? Yet you blindly support it. You swore an oath to the Constitution – have you ever read it?

    Do they put something in the water to make you so gullible? How does one become this gullible?

  • richardwicks

    Cowards ? I served, did you ?

    You’re a liar.

    You are merely a propagandist. It’s not hard to figure this out. You are literally a traitor. Your job is to mislead people by pretending to be something you are not.

    I wonder what it’s like to be like you, somebody completely devoid of ethics? You miss out on a lot.
