From L. Brent Bozell III:
The media elites have never been less interested in objectivity than they are right now on “gay marriage.” They don’t wear rainbow flags on their lapels when they appear on television, but the coverage speaks for itself.Even liberals are admitting the obvious. The Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism (PEJ) studied a sample of almost 500 news stories from March to May and admitted “statements of support dominate” the daily narrative.
“The study lends credence to conservative charges that the nation’s news media have championed the issue of same-sex marriage at the expense of objectivity,” media reporter Brian Stelter asserted at The New York Times. “Others have argued that news organizations are right not to overly emphasize opposition to what many see as a core civil rights issue.”
That’s very euphemistic. Some argue reporters are “not to overly emphasize” opposition? No, many liberals believe whoever still refuses to endorse “gay marriage” has as much moral authority as the Ku Klux Klan. Their voice should be ignored.
In many corners of the liberal media, the space for a social conservative to argue against “marriage equality” is vanishing before our eyes. It becomes twice as difficult the more and more anchors and reporters come out and declare themselves gay, and then the gay lobby expects those journalists to perform with perfect obedience to their agenda.
