Topic: Media Research Center
The Media Research Center operates under the assumption that any media coverage that is not explicitly anti-gay is, thus, "pro-gay" (and also complains that anti-gay activists are described as anti-gay activists). That peculiar definition showed itself in the MRC empire over the past few days.
An Oct. 22 NewsBusters post by Matthew Balan asserted:
CNN continued its promotion of the left-wing agenda of homosexual activist groups by devoting five segments on Wednesday to promoting GLAAD's "Spirit Day" or "Wear Purple Day." The network promoted the organization's website for the special day, which, as anchor John Roberts described it, was organized "to show support for gay and lesbian youth and honor teens who have taken their lives in recent weeks."
Balan doesn't explain why that is so horrible, beyond the unspoken apparent belief that nothing good about gays should be said on TV.
The next day, Tim Graham weirdly gloated that "Despite CNN committing five segments to helping the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) celebrate the new 'Spirit Day' against anti-gay bullying, GLAAD somehow left CNN out of their list of participating TV 'news' outlets."
Over at CNSNews.com, an Oct. 25 article by Michael Chapman on President Obama's message for It Gets Better Project aimed at countering the bullying of gay youth carries the headline, "Obama Records Pro-Gay Video Message for Youth."
Huh? Because Obama doesn't want gay teens to kill themselves, that's "pro-gay"? Apparently, surviving adolescence is not an optimal outcome for gay youth as far as CNS is concerned.
This was joined by an article by Eric Scheiner complaining that "Facebook announced on October 19th, that it’s working with the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) and the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GSLEN) to prevent and remove what it considers anti-gay comments from it’s social website. However, Facebook still includes pages with such names as 'I Hate the Pope,' "I Hate Conservatives,' and 'I Hate Democrats.'"
