TV Anchor Fired For Being White

TV Anchor Fired For Being White

A female newscaster who has won no less than 21 Emmy Awards, was sacked by a leftist television station who claims she made racially insensitive remarks on Facebook. Wendy Bell is suing the crap out of them now and I don’t blame her in the least. She claims they let her go because she is white and if there is any justice at all, she’ll win her lawsuit because that is brutally correct. In a Facebook post, Bell commented on the March 9th shooting of five black people in the poor Pittsburgh suburb of Wilkinsburg. “You needn’t be a criminal profiler to draw a mental sketch of the killers who broke so many hearts,” Bell wrote March 21. “They are young black men, likely in their teens or in their early 20s. They have multiple siblings from multiple fathers and their mothers work multiple jobs. These boys have been in the system before. They’ve grown up there. They know the police. They’ve been arrested.” What she said was nothing short of the truth… but telling the truth in media these days can get you fired.


From NBC News:

PITTSBURGH — A newscaster fired after her comments in a Facebook post about a shooting were deemed racially insensitive sued her former employer on Monday, saying the television station let her go because she is white.

Wendy Bell said her federal lawsuit that Pittsburgh-based WTAE fired her on March 30 “because of her race,” violating her civil rights.

“Had Ms. Bell written the same comments about white criminal suspects or had her race not have been white, Defendant would not have fired her, much less disciplined her,” the lawsuit reads. “Ms. Bell’s posting of concern for the African-American community stung by mass shooting was clearly and obviously not intended to be racially offensive.”

Bell was fired nine days later after WTAE determined her remarks violated the company’s journalism and ethics standards. What a joke that is. In an interview with the Associated Press on the day she was fired, Bell said she did not get a “fair shake” from the station, and that the focus on her comments was a distraction from the issue of “African-Americans being killed by other African-Americans.” Bell is seeking back pay, punitive damages and her old job back. If I were her, I wouldn’t want to go back there, but I hope she does get compensated financially. When stating facts, telling the truth and utilizing free speech is termed ‘racist’, you have lost your First Amendment right to free speech and tyranny dictates what you can and can’t say. Good for Bell… I’m rooting for her.
