New York Times reporter faces backlash over 'sophisticated, vaccinated crowd' comments about Obama party

La corrispondente della Casa Bianca del New York Times Annie Karni ha discusso della controversia che circonda la tanto criticata celebrazione di Martha's Vineyard di Obama in cui è stato visto senza una maschera e ha usato il termine “sofisticato” folla, saying that the guests werefollowing all the safety precautions.

MAINSTREAM MEDIA SILENT WHILE OBAMA DANCES MASKLESS IN A CROWDED TENT

The clip sparked outrage on social media including from journalist Glenn Greenwald who wondered aloud why more people weren’t concerned about the spread of the delta variant of the coronavirus at Obama’s party.

A NYT reporter on CNN justifying Obama’s huge maskless birthday bash because he only inviteda sophisticated, folla vaccinata” is about as emblematic of liberal discourse as it gets,” Greenwald tweeted. “What happened to all the concerns about vaccinated people passing Delta to the unvaccinated?”

Of course viruses don’t attack sophisticated people, Muffy!” attorney Harmeet K. Dhillon tweeted.

WHAT IS THE NEW DELTA PLUS VARIANT?

Someone really should inform Annie Karni what certain parts of Hollywood thinks of vaccines,” The Spectator contributor Stephen L. Miller tweeted.

Karni attempted to clarify the clip saying the word “sofisticato” was a direct quote from one of the residents she spoke to and that she was simply conveying the beliefs that some people on the island had.

Watch the full clip,” Karni tweeted. “The Q was, what do people on the island think of the party? The A was me summarizing views of ppl I spoke with: some are upset, + others think the concerns about it are overblown. ‘Sophisticated crowd’ was from a quote in the story.

Obama had said that his party, which was originally going to entertain over 500 persone, era “ridimensionato” due to the spread of the delta variant. tuttavia, the president was widely panned on social media after images from the party surfaced showing a massive tent and photos of maskless attendees.
