EXTRA: Update to NPR's Trans Dinosaur Emoji Story
Gina Gambony, host of "Morning Sedition" on All Things Re-Considered, shares an update regarding the dinosaur emoji story from Episode 3 (https://youtu.be/Latb4tOUG-0)
All Things Re-Considered received an interesting critique about the trans dinosaur emoji story we analyzed in Episode 3. We criticized the story for failing to include events explaining why feminists (so-called T*RFs) used the dinosaur emoji in September 2021. YouTube user “Fake Chuck” claimed NPR’s story DID provide the background information and he shared a link to prove it.
Unfortunately for Fake Chuck, the link he provided was not to the story NPR ran, but to a former version of the story. While this former version does mention David Lammy’s dinosaur insult and feminists’ subsequent embrace of dinosaur emojis, NPR chose to redact this information when it released the story on its website and to public radio stations for broadcast. Knowing this is quite enlightening.

This is our final episode of All Things Re-Considered for the season. We will release a conversation about what we learned next week. This is a great time to leave feedback about the show and suggest other topics for re-consideration (besides NPR)!

Would be better if the hosts were actually conscious
I find Peter Boghossian’s
Fascinating take on an Uber-woke platform.
I don’t know who’s idea this was, but it is a stroke of genius. Fascinating to listen to these guys dismantle a formerly great news institution that went woke and needs to go broke.
