TV Station Fires Staffer over 'Straight Pride' Post

Todd Starnes : Jun 14, 2024  ToddStarnes.com

The post, on her personal page, featured a meme with a newlywed man and woman that stated, "Celebrate Straight Pride," "It's Natural, It Has Worked for Thousands of Years," "And You Can Make Babies!"

Television station WFMJ in Youngstown dismissed Madonna Chism Pinkard over a humorous "Straight Pride" mem that was posted during pride month for gay people.

Ms. Pinkard, an award-winning broadcaster, had been employed by the NBC affiliate since 2004.

The post, on her personal page, featured a meme with a newlywed man and woman that stated, "Celebrate Straight Pride," "It's Natural, It Has Worked for Thousands of Years," "And You Can Make Babies!"

That statement apparently contradicts company policy at WFMJ, a television station owned by the Maag family. They launched an immediate investigation that eventually led to Ms. Pinkard's dismissal.

"WFMJ has terminated the employment of our Community Relations Director following her unauthorized post on a company-linked social media site last week," the company wrote on Facebook. "We do not condone such actions and apologize to you, our viewers, for this unauthorized post."

Again, the post was made on her personal page.

"WFMJ is committed to serving our entire community with the respect we believe all people deserve. We recognize we live in a diverse community with differing views on many topics, and we believe discussions of those views and reporting on them should be done in a respectful manner by all. We deeply regret that our Community Relations Director crossed the line," the television station said.

Ms. Pinkard apologized, but that's never good enough for the Alphabet Activists want.

"I apologize for the post that offended one of our viewers," she wrote. "I have removed it."

Again, it's never enough. When you offend the Alphabet Activists they will destroy you—especially if you work in the television news agency. It's like a modern-day Gestapo. Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
