As Twitchy reported last week, 1619 Project creator and New York Times journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones issued an ultimatum to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, saying through her lawyers that she would not accept a teaching position at the university without being granted tenure. Well, it looks like the UNC board has caved and is giving Hannah-Jones everything she demanded: a tenured professorship.

PBS News White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor thinks everyone should celebrate Hannah-Jones “getting what she deserves” by … buying her books?

I certainly my have no problem with partisan media; it has a long, storied, and important role in American history.
But is it too much to ask that reporters whose salaries are *paid by the taxpayers* refrain from taking stands on the political & cultural issues of the day? pic.twitter.com/BvdvzSkwss

Sorry sister, I won't be wasting my money buying this trash. If you all really hate America as much as your actions suggest perhaps you could have the decency and come right out and say it! https://t.co/VNpn8GbobI

Alcindor never tried to hide it, but now she’s just flaunting her bias.
'What more needs to be said?' PBS journo Yamiche Alcindor can't understand how UNC could deny tenure to 'hard truth' teller Nikole Hannah-Jones https://t.co/yMAmbv9wQy
