Female Washington Post Reporter Challenges Bezos to Provide Paid Paternal Leave, Equal Pay
The Washington Free Beacon ^ | February 4, 2019 | David Rutz

A Washington Post reporter challenged her newspaper's billionaire owner Jeff Bezos in a series of tweets on Monday to provide paid paternal leave and give female employees equal pay.

National reporter Abigail Hauslohner linked to Bezos' tweet expressing gratitude to journalists and promoting the Washington Post‘s Super Bowl ad. The commercial, which cost $5.25 million, was narrated by Tom Hanks and highlighted the work of journalists to bring citizens the facts, "no matter the cost."

"I am proud to report for @washingtonpost," Hauslohner wrote. "I’ve been shot at while on the job, & I’ve run [from] airstrikes. I’ve been threatened [with] arrest. [I've] lost brilliant colleagues who were far less lucky. But we report bc it matters; bc an informed public makes informed decisions. I wish however, that I didn’t have to give up my vacation & sick days & go wks w/out a salary in order to take leave w my infant daughter as I’m doing right now. Women reporters DO matter as much as male reporters, @JeffBezos. But we need your support. We need paid parental leave."

"And we need equal pay," she added. "You can do it because it’s the right thing to do. Or you can do it because journalism matters. The truth matters. Journalists need to be able to do their best work. They shouldn’t have to choose btw work & family."

His wife will certainly get a lot of “paid leave” from the divorce.

The “Facts” “regardless of the cost”?

Is that why we NEVER hear anything even the least bit negative about the Post’s et al “protected classes”?

“Regardless of the cost”

Delusional lol

If she’s a real feminist, she’d be demanding he pay for her numerous planned abortions.

Such irony, when we hear about “equal pay” for women, and we learn that good liberal organizations are not paying their women employees the same as men.

I wonder if Bezos and his shills, will explain and sound like conservatives, explaining that there are many factors entering into employee pay, such as years of experience, type of job, whether some women employees have taken less stressful jobs because it’s easier to combine with family responsibilities, etc.

The liberal view is that men overall are paid more than women overall, without regard to any other factors, and it’s all because of sexist discrimination.

It’s fun to see liberals get hoisted on their own petard.

That reporter is going to need to find another job. Unless, in his wealth and arrogance, Bezos wants to virtual-signal and play along.

"And we need equal pay..."
Says the woman who is DEMANDING THAT SHE BE PAID while she is NOT currently working nor doing anything productive for her employer!

"And we need equal pay..."
Says the woman who is NOT getting the same experience nor spending the same amount of time on the job nor spending the same amount of time in the field nor gaining any other experience that would constitute a seniority or annual pay raise, because she is off work with a child!

Do these people actually listen to their own absurdities?!? Or is all of that just washed over and ignored, because they have a vagina?!?

"And we need equal pay," she added. ...

They discriminate? Isn't that illegal? If so, why hasn't anybody sued?................

I have a challenge for Jeff Beezus, too!

Jeff, I challenge you to give me a million dollars!

And a Bentley.

I don’t go around throwing down the gauntlet every day, but I felt that in this case I had to do it.

Oh, you mean he's not "Mr. Perfect"?

Seems he not only has the tendency to be an adulterer, he also fails to treat women as equals. What a hypocrite.

Abigail Hauslohner is right. If Bezos is willing to blow 70 billion (divorce) on a superannuated bimbo then he should personally pay for Washington Post paternal leave and equal female and LGBTQUERTY pay.
