Accuracy in Media

CNN reporter Dyland Byers ignited a firestorm on Twitter Tuesday evening when he tweeted about the “incredible drain of talent” in the media and entertainment industries due to the wave of sexual harassment scandals.

The reaction was swift and severe.

Byers then tweeted his defense.

The criticism of this tweet is totally fair. I did not mean to defend these people or bemoan their departures. I just wanted to comment on the ramifications of the departures of these influential people — but I know that the ramifications of what they did are far far greater.

He then deleted this tweet and the original tweet saying it was “poorly worded.”

Sometimes things are better left unsaid.
