Conservative new site One News Now took a few liberties with the Associated Press‘ article on Hallmark’s gay marriage cards.

As you can see, ONN added a few contentious quotation marks to the term “marriage,” and, as if that’s not queer enough, replaces the word “same-sex” with homosexual. They do, however, refer to “same-sex civil unions.” So, the H-word, long a panic button for the right, is linked to marriage – warning! – while “same-sex” nestles safely next to civil unions, far removed from “tradition.”

A CNN reporter got caught up in a similar “nuptial” situation, but corrected his or her mistake. We doubt ONN, which is owned by the Bible-thumping American Family News Network, will do that same. (See screen shots below.)
