Guess Which “News” Channel Barely Mentioned Yesterday’s DADT Repeal?

C’mon, you knew it was gonna be Fox “News.” They mentioned it 16 times yesterday between 12 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. while CNN mentioned it 66 times and MSNBC mentioned it 84 times (of course, CNN and MSNBC are owned by that there durned liberal lamestream media). But downplaying gay news isn’t a first for Fox.

According to Igor Volsky at Think Progress:

Fox offered slim coverage of the certification of repeal in July, underreported the passage of New York’s historic same-sex marriage law, and remained mostly silent after a major law firm reversed its decision to defend an explicitly anti-gay law in March. Last year, the network failed to report that former RNC Chairman Ken Mehlman — who had orchestrated President Bush’s gay-bashing 2004 re-election campaign — had come out as gay.

Maybe Fox News has been listening to their psychopath psychiatrist Dr. Keith Ablow and are worried that covering gay news will turn all their viewers gay, the same way Chaz Bono doing the cha-cha is gonna make all American kids go transgender.

    Ironic how Queerty is always hatefully referring to Fox News as “hateful.”

  • Lefty

    @Politically Incorrect Thug: You mean in the same way gay people are always hatefully referring to homophobes as “hateful”?
    Hmmm, curious reasoning…

  • ewe

    You mean Faux Noose don’t like da gayz? Let me shed a tear. Get the pepper.

  • Little Kiwi

    Hey Politically Incorrect Thug, ten bucks says you can’t just flatly and clearly tell us all whom you voted for in the last Presidential Election.

    well, can you? I’d love to hear it. You love to boast, yet you seem incapable of basic simply honesty.

    I dare you to prove me wrong :D

  • christopher di spirito

    I’m not the least bit surprised FIXED Noise ignored the DADT repeal. This is, after all, the network who employs vicious homophobes like John Stossel and Dr. Keith Ablow.

  • Politically Incorrect Thug

    @Little Kiwi: You: I voted for McCain. You know, the one who actually had some experience in government. Now give me my ten bucks.

    @christopher di spirito: You: Stossel and Ablow? Homophobes? Seriously? Not even close. Your opinions rely too much on what your fellow libs tell you, and not what you’ve seen with your own eyes. It’s called sycophancy; look it up. I think you’ll be amazed at how empowering it is to think for yourself.

  • christopher di spirito

    @Politically Incorrect Thug: That may be the dumbest reply I have ever received on any website or blog.

    If you were even remotely familiar with me, then you would know my opinions are always my own. Always.

  • Little Kiwi

    So, you voted for the guy who supported Prop 8 and supports Prop 8 Style anti-gay amendments to constitutions. You voted for the guy who was opposed to repealing DADT. You voted for the guy who doesn’t support LGBT people being allowed to adopt children.

    Thanks for proving me right! From now on you’re not allowed to complain about anything the Democrats do that isn’t “pro-LGBT enough” because you, yourself, voted for a guy whose platform was built on anti-gay prejudice being codified into law.

    thanks for proving me right!


    we get it. your parents are ashamed of you. grow a pair.

  • Little Kiwi

    christopher, we have yet another self-loathing homosexual whiteboy who mistakenly believes his parent’s reluctant tolerance is acceptance and love. this is why he doesn’t see homophobia or bigotry. he voted for McCain. who ran on a platform of being “more anti-gay than that brown guy” in his bid for President.

    he just proved “us” right. he can’t complain about anything “liberals” do that isn’t “pro-LGBT enough” because he, himself, voted for a candidate who ran on a platform of anti-gay discrimination.

    the poor white boy has stockholm syndrome. GOProud would love him. Incidentally, so would Roy Cohn.

  • Politically Incorrect Thug

    @Little Kiwi: Wow, such bitterness. And you think that McCain had a platform of anti-gay prejudice being codified into law? Huh-what? Based on what? Seems to me that Obama is the one who has serious issues with gays (“Give me time, I’m evolving”), not McCain. But, being the reactionary that you seem to be, I don’t expect a thoughtful response, just more screeching.

    ps – Where’s my ten bucks? I need to send Rick Perry a donation in your name.

  • Little Kiwi

    McCain opposed LGBT couples adopting. McCain supported Prop 8, and continues to support Prop8 -style bans on gay marriage. McCain opposes the repeal of DADT.

    to ignore these things is called “willful ignorance”

    These are facts. There’s no debating “opinions” when dealing with facts. Obama supports gays adopting. Repealing DADT. Opposed Prop 8 and continues to oppose Prop8-style bans on gay marriage.

    those are the facts. You voted for McCain, a man whose platform and stance on LGBT issues and Equality are not only ‘not as progressive’ as Obama’s, but are in fact REgressive. As in, they’d put us back.

    These are the facts. You choose to ignore them. Thus, you prove me right. So thanks.

    No wonder your parents are ashamed of you. It’s not because you’re gay, but because you’re such a cowardly little wimp about it.

    I’m so thankful for my liberal parents. :-) It’s wonderful to know that I have a family and a community that actually loves and supports me, and will fight for my Equality. You have my pity. It must suck to have the life you were born into. Shame you’re not strong enough to fight for yourself.

  • christopher di spirito

    Moldy, lifeless, Old Coot McCain on LGBT rights and equality:

    – Opposed repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’
    – Opposes gay adoption
    – Opposed the bill that sought to add “sexual orientation” to the list of groups that would be included under Federal prosecution of hate crimes
    – Voted “YES” on Arizona prohibiting marriage equality

    John McCain, when he dumped his first wife and the mother of his children for a wealthy, younger, beer heiress, threw all sense of fairness and decency into the Sonoran desert.

    @Politically Incorrect Thug: said…

    ” I voted for McCain. You know, the one who actually had some experience in government. Now give me my ten bucks.”

    McCain has one of the highest percentages of missed votes in the last decade in Congress. If you go back and look at his record, there is not ONE substantive piece of legislation that he has marshaled through…in all his decades in Congress, NOT ONE. But he’s never met a lobbyist function he misses.

    Oh wait, I almost forgot, there IS one major piece of legislation he worked on. Campaign Finance Reform….why did I skip that one? That would be because as soon as it was passed he began ignoring it’s rules, and when he ran for president he specifically broke the rules outlined in his own law. He was able to do this because he blocked the appointment of people to the board that was supposed to judge campaign infractions.

    I would say somebody taking the govt. money for decades, not showing up to vote, and basically NEVER putting forth any work is the description of a lazy dillitant doging any real responsibility.

    The man was in charge of the Commerce committee, which oversees all internet commerce in the U.S. and yet NEVER BOTHERED to even learn how to sign on to the internet. There is McCain in a nutshell.

  • Politically Incorrect Thug

    OK, all right, you guys got me: John McCain is a nazi, he’s the anti-christ, he’s the epitome of evil, he’s blah and blah and blah. Obama is the greatest of messiahs you’ve been waiting for, he’s going to assure us all the right to marry, he’ll disperse the wealth of the rich to the poor, he’ll close Gitmo, he’ll fart rainbows, etc etc.

    Talk about self-delusional. Yikes.

  • Little Kiwi

    P.I.T. you’re just proving the rest of us right, time and time again.

    were you unaware of McCain’s anti-gay stances, which we’ve all listed for you, or do you simply choose to ignore them?

    just curious. a clear and intelligent answer would be appreciated.


  • Little Kiwi

    you’ll notice, P.I.T, that you threw a baby hissy-fit and didn’t address anything anyone’s been saying.

    we all pointed out the specific FACTS about McCain’s anti-gay stances that he made a part of his platform while running for President.

    were you unaware of these facts or do you just choose to ignore them? you keep proving us right. wanna do it again, or are you at all capable of intellectual honesty?


  • the crustybastard


    Game. Set. Match.

  • wtf

    @Politically Incorrect Thug: Are you really that stupid? You think McCain’s not a homophobe? Really? When there is video of him saying all sorts of offensive shit about us during the DADT hearings? Whatever dude. You’re an idiot. Oh, wait. You’re just a plant. How typical. Run along, troll.

  • jason

    Rupert Murdoch, the aged mogul from Australia who owns Fox News, is apparently terrified of homosexuals. It could be that he is terrified that one of his sons might be gay.

  • Politically Incorrect Thug

    Are you flirting with me again?

  • oldgayvermonter

    Quit clogging the comments here (AGAIN) with your bitchy cat fights. You know who you are… You three could start your own never-ending fight blog, ya know…it’s easy.

  • Michael

    @Politically Incorrect Thug:

    McCain is homophobic there is no getting around that one man.

    Though I do not trust Obama or think his intentions are ever genuine he is the lesser of two evils.

    If McCain and Palin would have gotten their way the LGBT community would been a lot worse off if it werent for Obama becoming president.Regardless of whether I trust or respect him or not he has most definitely done more for the LGBT community then any other president that existed has barnone.
