  • 2022/12/05 [L..T] A Parent Speaks Out After Armed Fascists Force School Drag Event's Cancelation «The father of two children who attended Red Oak Community School spoke with us about the school and its values, and the impact of the terrorism that resulted in the cancelation of the Holi-Drag Storytime event.»
  • 2022/12/04 [L..T] Armed Fascist Group Terrorizes Church, Shuts Down Youth Story Hour «Armed fascists successfully intimidated a church in Ohio into cancelling a Drag Queen Story Hour event yesterday. A group of masked fascists paraded in paramilitary style chanting “Life, Liberty, Victory” while others wore camouflage and military gear.

As our specific beat is media criticism, this piece will highlight the clearest journalistic errors, weaselly phrasing, and other poor choices made in the writing and editing of this piece.»
