      I guess he makes a good conservative “don’t scare the straights” image for the GLAAD “brand”. I wish they would have had the balls to give the award to someone really deserving like Bradley Manning instead.

      He deserves this award, he’s prominently featured LGBT issues on his news program for several years.

      Madollar is only interested in supporting the community so she can market herself. She’s a phoney, always was, always will be. The only thing Madollar is passionate about is herself.

      AC is just not a very good news anchor. Lte’s be honest – he’s where he is because he is pretty. His reporting is very slanted sometimes, in a way that tries to pass off opinion as news, which is not professionsal.
