Amanda Knox has been repeatedly vilified by the media because she was (gasp!) sexually active. The press, especially the Italian press, just couldn’t grasp the idea that Knox was doing something that most college students do.
Knox’s sexual history has been on trial for years — sending the damaging message that a woman who expresses her sexuality — will be judged and scrutinized.
Take her recent interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo for instance (aka some older dude yelling about “freaky sex stuff”). This steaming pile of garbage CNN calls an interview is troubling on many levels.
In case you missed it, Cuomo played the role of a douchie frat boy and Knox played the role of scolded cornered person.
“Knox is into some freaky sexual things!” he said. “Were you into into deviant sex? Insensitive question, but hey…”
Cumo’s backwards slut-shaming continued for most of the segment.
Watch the “you’ve got to be fucking kidding me” moments unfold in the following clip:
Knox was convicted and then cleared of killing her roommate Meredith Kercher while they were studying abroad in Perugia, Italy. It was later announced that the Italian court is now seeking a re-trial.
One thing’s for certain … when it comes to CNN, there’s plenty of shitty “news coverage” to go round. Who could forget their skewed view of the Steubenville rape trial? Or their laughable “actually, we just made that up” coverage of the Boston bombing.
What kind of nonsense will the network churn out next? Faking a “remote” split-screen interview?
