CBS confused by transgender flight attendants (VIDEO)
In a story about Thailand’s P.C. Airlines hiring of transgender employees, CBS has released this strange video with reportage by Nick Dietz, a journalist for CBSNews.Com. Dietz confuses the terms “transvestite” and “transgender” throughout the video, though to CBS’ credit, there seem to be very few reports from the P.C. Airlines story without confusion.
Here is the creepy-ish quip from CBSNews.Com:
Asian airline prefers transvestite flight attendants: PC Air is taking off for the first time using flight attendants with a unique set of features. CBSNews.com’s Nick Dietz reports how the airline hired transvestites for their specific qualities.
