I watched this jaw-dropping segment on CNN this morning. It was shocking as Andy Towle reported:
CNN’s Kyra Phillips just ran a repulsive and shockingly irresponsible segment on Lowenthal’s efforts in which she asked, “Homosexuality: Is it a problem in need of a cure?”
She then brought on crackpot “ex-gay” Richard Cohen, spewing lies about how people can change their sexuality and become straight, with nobody to rebut his disproven arguments. (You may remember when Rachel Maddow ripped Cohen to shreds over Uganda).
From CNN’s blog: “At 10:40 we’ll talk with the State Assemblywoman who’s heading up the repeal effort. We’ll also talke (sic) with a leading expert on sexual reorientation, who was gay but is now married to a woman and has 3 kids.”
Major fail for CNN.
Kyra Phillips and her boss, Jonathan Klein, owe us an apology.
UPDATED: Andy Towle posted the video. I hope Anderson Cooper takes a few minutes to watch this bizarre display:
