The Reuters news service was excoriated online by many after it published a bizarrely framed headline about the horrific shooting massacre at a Nashville Christian school by a transgender person.
The headline emphasized that the killer had been a student at the school and didn’t mention the killer’s transgender identity.
“Former Christian school student kills 3 children, 3 staff in Nashville shooting,” read the Reuters headline on Twitter.
Critics pounced on the headline as an example of editorialization in the mainstream media that appeared to only swing against conservatives.
“Journalists of America: tweets like this from @reuters are why so many people do not trust you, do not respect you, and actively hate you. If you can’t understand why based on this tweet, you’re part of the problem,” responded radio talk show host Erick Erickson.
“This headline. Six people, including three children under the age of 10, are dead, and Reuters decides that it’s going to make the shooter look like a Christian instead of the trans activist they were. Have you no shame?” read another popular tweet.
“This headline is absolute trash. And you know it. You are trying to manipulate a narrative in order to push an agenda and call yourself a news organization. Turn in the keys to your building,” replied BlazeTV host Chad Prather.
“Journalism died years ago, and this article and its inane headline are the stench from its rotted corpse,” read another response.
Police officers responded quickly to the Nashville shooting and were able to gun down the shooter inside the school. Three students were killed, including the daughter of a pastor and three adult staff members.
