Fox News correspondent William La Jeunesse repeatedly misgendered Caitlyn Jenner in April 7 reports on her potential run for governor of California.
La Jeunesse misgendered Jenner during Fox News’ America's Newsroom and again during Fox Business’ Fox Business Tonight. (In accordance with the Trans Journalists Association style guide, Media Matters has replaced the incorrect pronouns with the correct ones in brackets in the transcript below.)
Fox News hosts and guests have repeatedly misgendered trans people in the past; it's just one aspect of the network’s ongoing crusade to dehumanize and villainize the trans community. A recent Media Matters study found that Fox News aired 86 segments about trans people from the day President Joe Biden took office through March 18, the majority of which fearmongered about trans athletes and lied about best practice health care for trans youth.
