  1. Compiling a simple gallery of mainstream journalists cluelessly praising Caleb Hannan's terrible, transphobic story wherein he outed a trans woman and didn't seem too guilty about it when she killed herself.
    Not including examples from right-wing outlets or Grantland itself, because time is finite.

    Many of these people have accepted criticism and/or retracted their statements. But the ethical violations of Hannan's story should be apparent on first read. (Read the follow-up and find out which of these people came to their senses.)

    (It's been pointed out to me that Tidwell is only the publisher and not responsible for editorial content, and vice versa. Will follow up.)
