Topic: Media Research Center
When Rep. Barney Frank announced his retirement, we reminded people of Frank's epic pwning of CNSNews.com's Nicholas Ballasy, who tried to play gotcha with Frank by asking him a question about gay soldiers showering with gay soldiers, only to have Frank turn the tables and mock Ballasy's attitude.
We weren't the only ones who remembered that -- and CNS' parent organization, the Media Research Center, is not happy about it.
Matt Hadro tried to put the best spin on things in a Dec. 2 MRC item as he huffed that "Some members of the liberal media commemorated Rep. Barney Frank's (D-Mass.) retirement announcement by replaying his testy response to a CNSNews.com reporter about homosexuals showering with straight men in the military." Hadro went on to grumble that "Liberal HLN host Joy Behar ripped the CNSNews question as 'stupid' as she asked Frank 'Are you going to miss the stupid questions people ask you?'"
Well, it was a stupid question, geared to play gotcha with Frank. Is this embarrassment why Ballasy has not moved on from CNS and is now with the Daily Caller?
