What's next hour, CNN: Dr. Seuss singing virtues of emerald-hued pig butt?

by Jeremy Hooper

- A "cure" to homosexuality presented as an open-ended question.

- Unlicensed, highly controversial Richard "beat a pillow" Cohen presented as an "expert," with no challenge from either those within Cohen's own movement who reject his teachings, a person of science from the pro-equality side, or an LGBT spokesperson of any sort.

- Another attempt to present the American College of Pediatricians, a fringe splinter group of Christian conservatives, as a credible body of science. NARTH too.

-Another usage of Robert Spitzer's study in a way that goes against the researcher's own conclusions and wishes.

- Irresponsibility abounding:

CNN is struggling in the ratings. They make a habit of these kinds of unfortunate stunts, and even Andy Coop Coop's "360°" won't keep certain viewers from doing a 180°!
