Inclusion at Work: GLAAD Petitions CNN To Stop Inviting Pro-Family Guests

January 11th, 2011 by

This is remarkable, as a New Year’s Resolution for 2011, GLAAD called on its supporters to petition CNN, a network that for the most part already favors gay activists against the pro-family advocates in its reporting and analysis, that they should no longer allow any counterpoint discussion from “the anti-gay industry” (aka those who don’t line up with their message). According to the petition:

. . . the media needs to do a little housecleaning. Namely, it’s time for outlets to finally drop several hundred pounds of unhealthy weight, which they’ve been carrying around for years, in the form of anti-gay activists.

. . . The media is elevating their hurtful messages and attitudes [meaning, the messages and attitudes of those who do not embrace gay activism] to the level of rational discourse. . . .

CNN and the rest of the media are doing nothing but exposing their viewers to dangerous anti-gay rhetoric when they invite members of these anti-gay groups onto their programming. Starting in 2011, this needs to stop.

This is “tolerance” and “diversity”?
