"Former USA Today editor says boss demanded he delete tweets that only women can get pregnant"

A former USA Today deputy page editor has blasted the "woke ideology" of newsrooms as he claimed the paper threatened to end his career after he tweeted that only women can get pregnant.

A US journalist has blasted the "woke ideology" of newsrooms as he revealed he was demoted from his role for going against the idea that men can get pregnant.

David Mastio, who was USA Today's deputy editorial page editor until August, claimed the paper had threatened to end his career after he tweeted: "People who get pregnant are also women.

In an opinion piece for the New York Post, Mastio said he was informed by his bosses to delete the "offensive tweets" if he wanted to keep his job.

"If I wanted to keep any job at USA Today, my bosses informed me, I needed to delete these offensive tweets because they were causing pain to the LGBTQ activists and journalists on our staff," he wrote.

But Mastio, who has been an opinion journalist for 30 years, said he thought he was "authorised" to have his own beliefs.

"The idea that women are the ones who get pregnant has gone from scientific fact to opinion to outright falsehood in the blink of an eye," he continued.

"Nevertheless, it remains in my opinion that women get pregnant.

"Women, after all, come with all the accoutrements - vaginas, uteruses, ovaries and mammary glands."

Mastio added that Gannett - the company behind USA Today - was now filling its newsrooms with young journalists who share a narrow, "woke" ideology which was not in line with the rest of America.

"Gannett's top editors and publishers are filling the company with a cadre of young college graduates who share a narrow 'woke' ideology that is alien to the values of most of its readers," he explains.

"In recent years, I've watched good conservative editorial pages in Cincinnati, Indianapolis and Oklahoma City wink out to be replaced with bland corporate liberalism."

Mastio added that USA Today's "diversity committee" now have the power to edit "problematic" opinion content.

"Members of this intolerant 'diversity' committee root around in unpublished articles and try to spike those that run afoul of their agenda," he wrote.

"The few controversial conservative columns that make it through the gauntlet must be matched with content more amenable to the diversity ideology."

He continued: "If woke news department staffers have anything like the influence in news that they have in opinion, half our potential subscribers have no chance of seeing their views fairly represented".

David Mastio is now the executive editor of StraightArrowNews.com.
