Is Fox News going pro-gay? It is if you believe the conservative group ‘America’s Survival Inc.’ The group, in conjunction with ‘Americans for Truth About Homosexuality’, has issued a report and press release blasting Fox News for replacing its evening host Sean Hannity with Megyn Kelly.
"Pushing Sean Hannity out of the 9:00 p.m. slot, to make way for pro-homosexual advocate Megyn Kelly, is another sign of the channel's left-ward drift and decline," said America's Survival president Cliff Kincaid said in the press release.
The attack on Kelly and Fox News was part of a 73 page report which included other headlines such as "Fox News Rolls Over on Homosexuals in the Military," "Long Term Consequences: The Decline of American Civilization," and "Shepard Smith: The Next Anderson Cooper?"
As for what makes Kelly, currently a daytime host for the station, pro-gay? In a section of the report titled “Megyn Kelly: New Hero to the 'Gay' Lobby?" the group cites a few examples including her interview with Tony Perkins, leader of the antigay group Family Research Council. In that interview Kelly asked Perkins to provide evidence that same-sex marriage had harmed the country. Also mentioned is Kelly’s support of Chaz Bono during his transition.
For those concerned that Fox News is embracing a new, pro-gay, agenda no need to worry. According to the blog Media Matters Fox News’ coverage of LGBT issues has not changed. The station has recently referred to a new California law protecting transgender youth as “anarchy and Madness,” called a trans woman as a “burly man in a dress,” and completely ignored the topic of Russia’s anti-lgbt laws and how they might impact athletes traveling there for the Sochi Olympics
