Black Twitter drags white court reporter for using racial term


Lorne Thomson/Redferns

Court reporter Meghann Cuniff is catching heat for using a racial term to describe non-journalist bloggers.

Cuniff, who is white, gained a large following on Twitter/X for providing courtroom coverage during Tory Lanez’s trial in Los Angeles.

She was dubbed “Meghann Thee Reporter” by her mostly Black followers who praised her court reporting. Cuniff launched a merchandise line, including hoodies, to capitalize off her Black support.

boy gif Cuniff is among the mainstream reporters who apparently despise bloggers.

Writers like Cuniff use the slogan: “Support facts and journalism” or “Support real journalists” — implying that bloggers aren’t real journalists.

In a tweet about the Jeffrey Epstein files on Thursday, Cuniff asked her followers to “support the journalists”, and not people who are “stealing stuff off the Internet and re-reposting it.”

She concluded her post by saying journalists hired lawyers to secure the Epstein files, which “is not something any aggregator blog monkey can do.”

She wrote:

“The letter exemplifies why we need to support the journalists who are reporting on Epstein and not stealing stuff off the Internet and re-posting it: Hiring Big Law to get that list (and the entire unsealing of these docs) is not something any aggregator blog monkey can do.”

One person wrote: “WTF is a blog monkey? You are getting too comfortable lady. Tone deaf while taking what you can get from the cosign the culture (mistakenly?) have you is gross. Delete this mess.”

Another user wrote: “You may want to take a gander over to your quotes b/c your word choice is out of pocket and needs clarification.”

And a third person wrote: “Blog monkey is very distasteful. I’m sure you know how that looks. That sounds very pointed. Blogs are usually ran by whom? Which blogs? Who was this for? Call out the ‘blog monkeys.’”
