Judith Newman refuses to write anything about the actually autistic movement in response to her book, “To Siri With Love,” and that purpose is to continue to silence us in mainstream media — and perhaps to avoid mentioning her “To Siri” book is falling in sales.

 

Now Judith Newman wants to take out a journalist that wrote an article about the #boycotttosiri campaign, and she has the power to do so too.

The Great Autistic Silence Continues — how many days since the boycott started? What day in The Great Autistic Silence are we on now?

wake.bake.caffeinate.171231OK, here’s where I need support. I’m seeking to figure out which reporter she’s targeting …

Below, is the one print publication I know of that ran the story. I believe to date, the only one.

Is this the reporter Judith Newman is threatening?

Here is the transcript of the comment by Judith Newman.

“I’ve thought it’s a piece too, but not sure I want to do it. But this has also been a reminder of how lazy a lot of young journalists are, even if it’s because of the mad race to get things online.

So a woman is writing a story about the troll situation, and asks if I want to comment. I say I’m happy to, but has she read the book.

She says, No this is a news story. It’s unnecessary, someone else on her site will do a ‘feature’ [yeah,sure] and will read it. I say, ok, fine, call me now. (I was walking down the street at the time and didn’t have her number.) She doesn’t call.

Then I email an say, OK, I’ll be in my office, you can call or email me questions. I’m happy to talk to you. Nothing. Then the story is posted. with just like ten posts from the trolls who hadn’t read it, and the conclusion that the books is a ‘net loss’ to autistic people.

No checking of whether the things were saying wer ein any way what I’ve said. after an initial (decent) impulse to do it. I’m sure she told her editors,” Well, I tried.”

Not giving her or the website oxygen, but she is near the start of her career and I will remember her.”
