<p>The Big Three networks&#39; evening newscasts on 13 May 2016 devoted full reports to the Obama administration&#39;s controversial letter to every public school district in the nation directing them to allow transgender students to use bathroom and locker rooms according to their chosen sexual identity. However, <em>NBC Nightly News</em>&#39;s segment on the issue touted the &quot;Obama administration&#39;s historic new directive to the nation&#39;s public schools,&quot; and revisited a Massachusetts girl who now lives as a boy. Kate Snow touted how the child&#39;s mother says the federal government&#39;s move is &quot;protection for him at school &mdash; and validation that his rights matter.&quot;</p>
