Bill Donohue comments on the way ESPN and CNN handled recent episodes involving sexuality:
On Monday night, during the BCS national title game televised on ESPN, a camera focused on Katherine Webb, the Miss Alabama girlfriend of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron. Announcer Brent Musburger called her “a lovely lady” and “beautiful,” saying, “You quarterbacks get all the good-looking women.” The next day ESPN said, “we apologize that the commentary in this instance went too far and Brent understands that.”
Kathy Griffin, however, didn’t go too far for CNN on New Year’s Eve when she simulated oral sex on Anderson Cooper; there was no apology. CNN’s silence was not lost on Griffin. Indeed, the next night, she told David Letterman, “If you think this is the part where I’m gonna apologize for trying to go down on Anderson Cooper, you are sorely mistaken.” She added, “I tried, ladies and gays. I tried for you.”
So ESPN apologizes for an innocuous remark (Miss Webb said it was “kind of nice”), but CNN refuses to apologize for Griffin’s blatantly offensive stunt. This reveals much more than duplicity: the exact same mindset—one that is infused with hard liberal ideology—is prevalent at both networks.
