Dear Mainstream Media Shitty Coverage Part 2

Dear CNN and other mainstream media,

Why are we pretending that this is an equal argument? Interviewing bigots from Family Research Council, National Organization of Marriage, etc is not news coverage. Would you have interviewed KKK members for Civil Rights?

Mainstream media is interviewing people in California that are upset that their vote to discriminate will not be upheld in the case of Prop 8. Bigots: It was inappropriate to let you vote on the rights of others in the first place. Had Civil Rights been up for a vote in Mississippi in the 60s the wrong side would have won. Should the courts have just sat back and let bigotry reign? That’s what’s suppose to be great about the US: Minority rights are supposed to be protected.
