GLAAD: CNN’s Baldwin & Merman Hold Richard Land Accountable for Boy Scout Claims

From GLAAD on the CNN interview with Southern Baptists leader Richard Land:

This is a little different from some of the acocuntability we have seen in the past. Berman and Baldwin didn’t haul out comments from Land’s past so viewers would learn more about his patterns of engagement. Instead, the anchors calmly and quietly challenged most everything Land put on the table. They saw right through his obvious goal of connecting gays with child sexual abuse (despite his protests to the contrary) and reacted in the spirit his words deserved. The anchors didn’t talk over him—they simply refused to let their network serve as Richard Land’s echo chamber. Bravo.

Here’s the CNN interview:

For virtually his entire life, Tim has been writing. Over the years he’s dabbled in mainstream fiction, science fiction, dystopian fiction, and personal essays. The one consistent thread through his entire writing career has been blogging – he’s been doing it since 1997 in one form or another. In addition to writing Tim has frequently worked and volunteered as a civil rights advocate including on campus LGBT advocacy as well as interning with the Colorado Civil Rights Division.
