The new McCarthyism: TV Reporter Fired For Celebrating Trump Victory

Recommended Posts

On her PRIVATE facebook page.

Scarlett Fakhar was a reporter on KRIV-TV — a Fox affiliate in Houston, Texas — until a post she made celebrating the election of Donald Trump on her personal Facebook page, which was set to private, was made public.

In the post, Fakhar expressed glee at Trump’s victory, writing, “Since everyone is talking about how they woke up this morning…ill (sic) just go ahead and say I could barely sleep from how happy and relieved I was.”

The reason for her getting fired is for breaking the journalistic code of remaining unbiased. I wonder how many reporters posted about their dismay at Hillary losing and how many of them lost their jobs?  Now claiming to support Trump will get you accused of being a racist with out evidence and then fired and likely blackballed. It's shocking that we are revisiting this kind of  suppression of thought and oppression simply due to someones opinions and/or political leanings once again 60 years later.

 

I'm not a facebook user but if anyone wants to use their system against them here's a link to the new stations page if anyone who is a FB user wants to let them know what they think about this https://www.facebook.com/fox26houston

This is sad that she was targeted like this. But expected considering how biased the MSM has been this entire election. The owners of the corporations are the ones pushing this BS. I suspect that this trend will continue as the media continues with their conservative witch hunt. But hey that's why more and more people are looking into the alt media for info. And hopefully we can starve them of their much needed ad revenue.

Stay away from becoming a journalist. I have a feeling that this job will become obsolete in the future.

It's ok because she will get a job somewhere, where she's allowed to tell the truth. If they censor her for that, then they are censoring for everything else.
