• The ‘Impartial’ Media Celebrates Gay Marriage ‘Victory’

    The mainstream media is taking a rollicking victory lap over the Supreme Court’s landmark ruling which legalized gay marriage in all 50 states.

    Several news organizations which normally operate under the façade of nonpartisan impartiality cheered the Court’s decision:



    MSNBC “news anchors” were openly biased in their reaction to today’s ruling and tweeted out a video featuring anchors Thomas Roberts, Tamron Hall, Krystal Ball, Alex Witt, and Abby Huntsman all promoting “Pride Month.”

    Each one gushed over their favorite aspects of the LGBTQ movement and celebrated the recent “accomplishments” for gay marriage. The Cycle’s Krystal Ball called those who oppose gay marriage “insane.” “I came out in favor of marriage equality in Virginia, and people thought I was insane,” she said. “Now you’d have to be insane not to be in favor of marriage equality.”

    “It’s a reminder of just how far we’ve come as a country,” the supposedly conservative Abby Hunstman of The Cycle said. “I often say that one day I’ll tell my kids that we used to live in a word where gays weren’t treated as equals.”

    The network created the hashtag “#msnbcPride” to promote their celebration of Pride Month and added a section to their website specifically for people to share photos and videos of their “Pride,” in addition to the video. The Washington Post took the extra step of invoking the divine. “Senior White House official Betsey Stevenson, a member of the Council of Economic Advisers, captured what looked like a sign from the heavens on Friday at 11 a.m. Stevenson snapped a photo of a rainbow that had appeared over the White House,” Wonkblog’s Ana Swanson wrote.

    The celebratory rainbow image was not actually from the day of the decision, prompting the White House official,  Betsey Stevenson, who tweeted the image to clarify.

    Swanson then updated her post:

    CORRECTION: The rainbow in this image came from last week, not today. Betsey Stevenson, the White House official who tweeted it, later made clear that the image came from last week, not this morning.
