Topic: Media Research Center
Brent Bozell furthers his Media Research Center's anti-gay agenda with his Jan. 28 column, professing to be offended that gays are depicted on TV. He calls "Glee" a hotbed of "gay teen propaganda" and huffed of coverage of the show that insufficiently bashes the gay characters for being gay: "They are not celebrating diversity. They are intimidating dissidents."
Bozell goes on to petulantly call the show "My So-Called Life" a "bomb" (incorrectly conflating lack of popularity with lack of quality, as the MRC is wont to do) and dismissed the show "Degrassi" as a "grope opera" that "has had eight gay characters, and is now normalizing “Adam,” a female-to-male transgender teen." And he's particularly put out that "Most of ABC Family's teen shows seem to have a sympathetic gay character."
Of course, Bozell is opposed to any sympathetic gay character, teen or otherwise.
