Why Won't CNS Interview Gays?

Are reporters at afraid to interview gay people?

Earlier this week, we noticed that CNS reporter Penny Starr interviewed numerous people regarding President Obama's executive order that will lead to hospital not circumventing requests from patients to receive visitation from their homosexual partners -- but she pulled a quote from a gay advocacy group from "a statement posted on his group’s Web site."

Now, an April 22 CNS article by Pete Winn is built around an interview with Andrea Lafferty, president of the conservative Traditional Values Coalition, in which she asserted that an amendment to the Employment Non-Discrimination Act "could ban employers from firing transsexuals, cross-dressers or men who think of themselves as women" -- and, specifically, "put transgender teachers in every classroom in America."

As with Starr, Winn makes no attempt to interview any representatlve of a gay advocacy group for a response to Lafferty's ludicrous, inflammatory claims.Again, the only statements made by a gay group -- in this case, GetEQUAL, came from a press release.

Why is Winn afraid to interview gay people? Because that person would interfere with his agenda and call BS on Lafferty's inflammatory claim that the ENDA amendment will "put transgender teachers in every classroom in America"?
