CBS Doesn’t Want Viewers To Know That America’s Youngest Mayor Is A Gay

Alex Morse is the newly-elected 22-year-old mayor of Holyoke, Massachusetts. He’s also a gay. But watching CBS’ 150-second-long news segment on Morse, you wouldn’t know it because they didn’t even bother mentioning it in passing.

Accidental oversight? Not enough time? Irrelevant detail? It just kinda reminds us of when NBC neglected to note Matt Mitcham’s boyfriend in the stands during Mitcham’s golden Olympic victory.

Deliberate? Maybe. Worth mentioning? Definitely.
