Ok, I know I'm kinda behind the curve on this, but I've been paying attention to the story...just not posting my opinion on it.
Jeff Gannon, of the Talon News website is getting slammed by liberals, the press (ok, that's redundant), and Democrats (triply redundant, yes I know), for asking 'softball' questions during a press conference. Apparently that's a privilege only reserved for the rest of the liberal media during a Democratic administration.
Anyway, the biggest slam that these idiots can come up with is that he's gay. They tried to denigrate his position since he wasn't a real reporter, only writing for a right-wing news blog site. Since Jayson Blair, the whole 'real reporter' thing seems to have grayed a tad. Then they tried to accuse him of running a gay escort service. Barney Frank must have decided that wasn't a good strategy.
So, apparently, everyone is supposed to be angry about this guy because he's gay and was allowed a press pass. Hmm. I thought it was the Republicans who are 'homophobic'. But nope, as long as the gay guy is in cahoots with the Dummycrats, he's fine. As soon as he moves a little right toward the Republicans, he gets outted, and gay sex pictures get posted on the Internet.
So much for tolerance.
