NewsBusters’ Brent Bozell whines that Glee is ruining the world, and turning your kids gay, parents of America – in a new column for CNSNews.com. Just to get it out of the way, NewsBusters’ mission statement is “Exposing & Combating Liberal Media Bias”, which is to say, there’s about to[…]
NBC’s merger with Comcast is complete. The ink hasn’t even dried on the contracts yet, and incoming media chief Steve Burke has done away with the television network’s iconic peacock, saying it “seemed kinda busy”. If Burke continues to make decisions like this one, we imagine he won’t be all[…]

Our gay blog pals at GLAAD have had quite enough of CNN employing hate group leaders and straight up bigots on their 24 hour talking heads newscycle. GLAAD and Change.org argue that CNN often plugs credential-less homophobes into their programming under the guise of providing “balanced” reporting on LGBT issues.[…]
