THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — In some ways, Bill O’Reilly, a commentator for FOX News and host of The O’Reilly Factor has outed himself by revealing he does not research facts before he speaks — O’Reilly did not even know transgender inmate Michelle Kosilek had yet to have the sex reassignment surgery she won in a court case until after he unloaded on her. It was co-host Megyn Kelly who noted that Kosilek did not have the surgery, however, she also participate in the transphobic barrage on Kosilek.
Kosilek, of course, is the Massachusetts prisoner, who recent won a court ruling on her “cruel and unusual punishment” claim. Read more about that here: http://lexiecannes.wordpress.com/2012/12/20/transgender-inmates-lawyers-to-get-700k-in-denying-srs-is-cruel-and-unusual-punishment-case/
I’m going to spare everyone the what was specifically said on the show but I do want to reaffirm for every one of the fact that FOX-TV and Bill O’Reilly, will mock, shock and exploit transgender people to make money for themselves. Sadly, this now includes Megyn Kelly.
Regular readers know the consequences of this transphobic behavior is devastating for trans people.
Don’t let your friends tune to FOX News. The life you save may be of someone you know.
