PGAY & LESBIAN ADVOCACY GROUP PETITIONS CNN TO BAN ‘ANTI-GAY’ GUESTS

GLAAD, the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, initiated a petition drive Thursday in an attempt to persuade CNN to prohibit guest appearances by representatives of what the group calls “the anti-gay industry.”

“CNN has long been one of America’s most respected journalistic organizations on many issues, but for several years, it has had a giant blind spot when it comes to issues that impact the LGBT community,” the group’s petition says, citing a recent John King USA segment in which Peter Sprigg, a senior fellow of the Family Research Council, voiced opposition to the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.

The Family Research Council is a conservative organization that promotes “faith, family and freedom in public policy and public opinion.” But according to GLAAD, Sprigg “has worked to advance some of the most hurtful, dangerous, and demonstrably false notions about the lives of LGBT people that our country has seen in recent years.”

“CNN needs to stop elevating anti-gay opinions to the level of the actual experts who they SHOULD be talking to; people like scholars, historians, professionals, or folks with actual experience (not just animosity),” says a statement from GLAAD.

Here’s the CNN segment in which GLAAD claims Sprigg was “anti-gay.” You decide: Is Sprigg’s opposition to a DADT repeal inherently “anti-gay”?

In response CNN released a statement saying that they appreciated GLAAD’s “concern for objective and fair reporting,“ and promised to to continue to book the best guests who ”have opinions that reflect different points of view across the country.”

GLAAD is a joke, always has been and always will be.

They aren't about gay rights, they are about getting their faces in the paper. Good job, they were successful here again.... :bonk:

What kind of bigotry do you want to legitimize next? Maybe anti-black activists?

Speaking of bigotry.... that was the theme here.

bigotry |ˈbigətrē|

noun

bigoted attitudes; intolerance toward those who hold different opinions from oneself
