There have been many articles published about the Florence Colorado student who is being attacked by the right wing conservatives. There have been many intentional breaches of journalistic protocol along the way but only one that clearly endangered the youth at the center of this manufactured ‘controversy’.
NBC KOAA in Colorado Springs published a very biased video “Transgender Student Causing Controversy” early on naming the transgender student. To date no other media, mainstream, or social has parroted that story or stooped that low to endanger this vulnerable young person’s life.

Report Brennan. Save a transgender youth’s life.
