Twitter SLAMS CNN after they completely mischaracterize Google memo

CNN has now foisted themselves into the Google memo controversy by tweeting this mischaracterization of the memo out a little while ago:

And then this a little later:

They apparently also ran a segment with the same phony anti-diversity premise, suggesting that the memo argues that women aren’t biologically fit for tech jobs.

But that’s not at all what the memo said, as Ben Shapiro points out this morning:

Women Are Biologically Unfit For Tech. CNN actually ran a segment today claiming that this was Damore’s suggestion. That’s patently false. In fact, Damore openly says the opposite. The media seem completely unable to comprehend the difference between the statement “women on average are different from men” and “this particular woman is different from this particular man.” That’s because they are stupid, on average. But here’s Damore, explicitly stating that women are not unqualified as individuals:

I’m not saying that all men differ from all women in the following ways or that these differences are “just.” I’m simply stating that the distribution of preferences and abilities of men and women differ in part due to biological causes and that these differences may explain why we don’t see equal representation of women in tech and leadership. Many of these differences are small and there’s significant overlap between men and women, so you can’t say anything about an individual given these population level distributions.

He reiterates that point later in the memo:

I’m also not saying that we should restrict people to certain gender roles; I’m advocating for quite the opposite: treat people as individuals, not as just another member of their group (tribalism).

Twitter responded quickly to CNN’s phony premise:

And the list goes on and on…
