Christina Kahrl On CNN's 'Reliable Sources'

Christina KahrlHaven't been watching much CNN lately because I'm still pissed off about the far too conservative butt kissing lean they have taken over the last few months.  I'm also not happy with the ethnic cleansing that has taken place at CNN and not renewing the contracts of my Houston homeboy Roland S, Martin and Soledad O'Brien for doing her job and asking tough question of politicians.

But I will put my pissivity at the network aside for a few moments and check out our ESPN sports writing homegirl Christina Kahrl on the CNN Show Reliable Sources tomorrow morning at 10 AM CST. 

She'll be on to discuss the issues of covering trans folk in the media that have been in the national spotlight since Katie Couric's jacked up interview with Carmen Carrera and Laverne Cox and the outing of t a transperson that may have been a contributing factor to her subsequent suicide.

She wrote a brilliant piece in Grantland about what they got wrong in covering the Ms V. story. 

Fallon Fox and Kye Allums, who have also been on the receiving end of less than enlightened reporting themselves have also had outstanding articles published recently that need to be read in TIME by Fallon and in The Nation by Kye.. 

But definitely will be looking forward to seeing Christina tomorrow and seeing how CNN handles this discussion.
