Thumb on the scale much?


The BBC today:

US man guilty of killing transgender woman in gender identity hate crime first

A man has been found guilty of killing a transgender woman in the US’s first federal trial over an alleged hate crime based on gender identity.

BBC yesterday:

Cat killer Scarlet Blake found guilty of murdering Jorge Martin Carreno

A woman obsessed with death who once livestreamed the killing of a cat has been found guilty of murdering a man.

When a trans woman is the victim his transitude is in the headline and the lede. When a trans woman is the perp his transitude is not in the headline or the lede.

This manipulative lying is shockingly bad journalism.
