Now if it was like Kim Kardashian saving a kid from a well you bet your ass they’re gonna put her name in the headline That’s clickbait GOLD Her name is instantly recognizable We know who she is and we wanna read on Again I’m saying this because if we focus on the headline not saying Theresa’s name…it completely detracts the focus off the fact that this woman is a damn hero We’re more upset and angry that she’s been “disrespected” even though she hasn’t by the like first rule of writing headlines instead of saying “hey she is saving these young girl’s lives how can we help her?” Basically share the article Spread her message share her story and make Theresa’s name so goddamn well known that the next article that’s written about her WILL have her name in the headline Also @ anyone who says “why don’t they say their name!!!!” Consider this If you actually click on the damn thing and READ the article I can guarantee you will learn the person’s name It WILL be within the body of the article itself So why are y’all acting like it’s a big mystery they’re deliberately erasing them or something? Aren’t you reading the article? If it really was so important to you it shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes to read and learn her name instead of you know sharing it without reading it for woke points 👀👀👀👀👀 Hello I’m a journalist and this is exactly right Names are news but only if people know them already I’m so tired of seeing this all the time It’s a completely nonsense thing to get mad about Put your energy into something more important - like calling the media out for not covering enough of this But not for not putting an unknown woman in a headline QUEEN Meme
