Ready for the quintessential “shoot the messenger” story?  The writer who broke the story of the Jewish LGBT group being excluded from the “Dyke March” has gotten booted from writing for the paper.  Because you know…the fake narrative matters.

The Algemeiner reports:

Hammond — whose June 24 story caused a national storm after she detailed how three women flying Jewish Pride flags embossed with the Star of David were instructed to leave the gathering by organizers from the Dyke March Collective — confirmed to The Algemeiner on Monday that while she was still employed by the paper, she was not presently engaged in its reporting and writing operations.

“At this time, I have not been fired from Windy City Times, but I have been transferred to working full time for the sales department,” Hammond explained in an emailed statement. “The reasoning is an internal matter and I have been instructed not to comment about it even to close friends. Given my present situation, I must comply with this instruction.”

Get this.  This reporter won the 2016 National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association Award for Excellence in News Writing.  Isn’t that rich?  Plus, she literally gave a kidney to one of her readers, because she wanted to counteract the acrimony of this age.

“So it is easy to forget that, even if you don’t have the resources of a wealthy philanthropist, it is more important than ever to help someone in need and, in so doing, change their world and, as a consequence of that action, the world as a whole for the better,” she wrote.

But no matter how awesome she is as a person or a reporter, it’s not enough because she dared violate the liberal narrative.
