On Saturday Gizmodo published a story titled, “Exclusive: Here’s The Full 10-Page Anti-Diversity Screed Circulating Internally at Google.” Other news outlets quickly followed Gizmodo’s lead:
Fox News: Google employee’s anti-diversity manifesto prompts torrent of responses, sparks wider debate
CNN: Storm at Google over engineer’s anti-diversity manifesto
NBC: Google Employee’s Anti-Diversity Manifesto on Women’s ‘Neuroticism’ Goes Viral
Reuters: Google employee’s anti-diversity memo prompts company rebuke
There’s just one problem with all of these headlines (and many more like them). The memo wasn’t “anti-diversity” it was expressing opposition to the approach Google was taking to achieve diversity.
