Fox News 'Transition Tracker' Promotes Gay Fear

Fox News has come out with an article called 'Gay America Prepares to Party at Obama Inauguration' trying to once again elicit conservatives worst nightmares.

The article makes it sound like millions of LGBT activists will flood the streets and promote their agenda. They are trying to paint Obama as a "San Francisco Values" liberal, and they don't mean it in a good way.

The article goes on to quote several anti-equality organizations and their spokespeople. Including such ludicrous organizations as 'Americans For Truth About Homosexuality' run by Peter LaBarbera which is a hate group that seeks to pathologize and take away rights from LGBT people.

The mere mention, and quoting of Mr. LaBarbera is in itself un-newsworthy, and he seeks to push his agenda to insinuate that behind closed doors, there will be gay sex parties, fetish events, and more that are somehow tied to the Obama inauguration. There is a fetish event scheduled prior to the inauguration, but it is completely unrelated to the Obama celebration. The conservatives seek to paint a broad brush on the entire LGBT community in attempt to make us appear to have an alternative lifestyle of filth and perversion.

This article is another example of the divisive politics and scare tactics displayed over and over again by Fox News. Please let Fox know that this story is biased, inappropriate and factually incorrect.

I'm gay and like Fox News. As someone who actually watches the channel, I've never detected an anti-gay agenda in their reporting. Before judging the channel, spend a little time watching it -- then make your own decision.

I second the gay fox news watcher.

I'd rather have two sides to the argument than just calling them names for having any sense of objectivity.

After reading the article I think the comments showed how oddly obsessed the Christians were, following people to a hotel? Reasonable people can see this for what it is, and those on the far left (like this blog) or far right (creepy Christians with too much free time) will just keep their incessant squealing whenever anything not fitting their worldview is mentioned.

Fox doesn't have an anti-Gay bias? Nooooo. Of course not. All those things they have said over the years about Gays they've also said about Blacks, Asians, Women, Hispanics, the Irish, Germans, Anglo-Saxon Protestants, Catholics, Jews, atheists, Muslims, Rednecks, the poor, the rich, corporate America, Republicans, Democrats...the list is long. They've been very fair in their attacks. About as fair as Mao during the cultural revolution. Their just a model of objective, balanced reporting.

To the previous poster -- I assume then that you feel MSNBC and CNN are straight shooters reporting everything right down the middle. No left wing bias on those stations. My next door neighbor shares your sentiments about Fox News, Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity. I asked her if she has ever seen Fox News. Of course she said no. Just keep drinking the kool-aid.

I have seen fox, oreilly, hannity millions of times, and it's far from "fair and balanced"

Okay. I'll give you Hannity -- he is conservative. But that hour also had Alan Colmes who is liberal. Who gives the opposing view to Keith Olbermann or Rachel Maddow?

Queers United said...

Alan Colmes doesn't talk and who gives the opposing view on O'reilly? Atleast MSNBC has pat buchanan, and joe scarborough

Actually MSNBC can put on whoever they want. Nobody watches the channel anyway.
