“If you’re not in the Dallas area you are missing out on a spectacular morning show called The Broadcast,” Cooper said without a hint of sarcasm in his voice, “and an incredible moment last week when they veered away from springtime pizza recipes and how to slim down your fat pets, to weigh in on this: Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend while ESPN cameras were rolling after Sam became the first openly gay player drafted to the NFL.”
Cooper then played footage from last week’s episode of The Broadcast, which has garnered more than 1.2 million hits and 600 “dislikes” on Youtube.
“Amy Kushnir has every right to express her opinion,” Cooper said. “She just wants us to think of the children. And she has a point, if we don’t take action, TV could become a Bacchanalian free-for-all complete with half-naked men and indiscriminate kissing.”
Video of an episode of The Broadcast from February then flashed across screen. In it, a very giddy Kushnir is seen being lifted up by two shirtless male strippers. Giggling, she then gives each stripper a kiss on the cheek.
Earlier this week, Kushnir told Glenn Beck in so many words that it was her mission to keep homophobia alive in America. Ms. Kushnir, if you’re reading, your time would probably be better spent at a salon having your roots touched up. Or, better yet, taking a very long vacation.
