No question about it: CNN is the single most shamelessly hypocritical network out there. Remember back in 2004 when state after state of the union was moving to pass amendments to their constitutions banning same sex marriage? Remember all the flushed comments about the sanctity of marriage repeated over and over again on CNN with nary a challenge from nary a “journalist?”
Well, get President Ahmadinejad of Iran to make some comments about the supposed lack of gays in his country, and boy! Watch the CNN folks fall all over themselves to defend gay people now!
NEW YORK (CNN) — Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Monday challenged a university audience to look into “who was truly involved” in the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, defended his right to question established Holocaust history and denied there were gay Iranians.
Wolf Blitzer just got done doing a whole “Keeping Them Honest” segment on TV just a few seconds ago, “exposing” the truth that there are – get ready – gay people in Iran. And they’re not treated kindly, if you can believe it. Suddenly, CNN cares.
