trans, UK, press, Good Law Project 

Good little story on how the Good Law Project came to the bitter realisation that the UK press is systemically transmisiac:

"But while the Bell v Tavistock case was widely covered by the British media, with a packed press gallery at the court, BBC journalists live-tweeting the hearing, national TV cameras waiting outside, the case’s claimant, Keira Bell, trending on Twitter for days after the hearing, and a week of national media coverage after December’s ruling, there was tumbleweed when the legal challenge to it succeeded at the end of March.

The Times, which sent a senior journalist to cover the two-day hearing in October and then published multiple anti-trans columns, features and news reports about the outcome, did not report on the March ruling at all. Neither did the Guardian, though it published news reports on the hearing and two editorials about the December judgement."
