OMG yes a thousand times YES. I've written about this a ton of times. Our media is so freaking lazy I could scream. Enough with the stenography, people. This is an age of YouTube, I can hear what someone says for myself. I need a reporter to do some work and actually, you know, verify some stuff. Be skeptical. Call bullshit on this stuff more often.
It's not just on the gay issue, it's on EVERYTHING these idiots say. Here in Tennessee our wackadoodle governor and lieutenant governor have taken to saying any old crap -- there are jobs but no job applicants bec…

Please, I beg of you. A return to skepticism in our news media would do the nation a whole helluva lot of good.
