This is the 2nd "article" I've seen that said I left anti-abortion activist interviews on "the cutting room floor" because I didn't agree w/ them. This 1 is from @TuckerCarlson's site. (Maybe they're mad I said, "F**k Tucker Carlson." on #UnitedShades😄) Lemme clear this up.
Portions of both of them are online here. I even promoted that you could see them online DURING the #ReproductiveJustice #UnitedShades episode. I'm the 1 who decided to put them online. They could've been gone completely. Like most interviews we cut out. cnn.com/videos/tv/2019…
On #UnitedShades we always film more than we need. Cutting interviews out rarely means they aren't good. It means we don't have room, or something else resonated, or it felt redundant. The show is only 42 minutes long minus commercials. Every season I've pushed for extras online.
How hardcore am I when I give carts to #UnitedShades, you ask? I CUT MY BEST FRIEND OUT OF AN EPISODE OF MY TV SHOW! Also I *checks notes* INTERVIEWED THE KKK! & tonight we aired a Black Trump supporter. I ain't scurred of disagreement.
I think the reason that this bothers me is that at its core it's just bad journalism. I can see that & I'm not even a journalist. So hey @DailyCaller & @newsbusters, do better. I know you can. At least like, fact check & like, Google stuff. Also, once again, fuck @TuckerCarlson.
