CBS Affiliate in Pittsburgh Airs “Man on the Street” Response to Obama’s Support for Marriage Equality

I am was so proud of KDKA. They had been very open to feedback from GLAAD on their coverage and did a nice job tonight covering the Obama story with less than one hour’s time to prep. The segments with actual political coverage were woefully inadequate. They went for sensational partisanship over the actual news.

Reporter Ralph Ianotti – who I think is very professional – hit Market Square to ask individuals what they thought about the President’s statement. Note the folks with the most enthusiasm and tell me what that says about stereotypes about race, age, yinzer status, etc.

Great job, Ralph.

I was going to do a survey of Pittsburgh media coverage, but then realized I’m just going to stop with this because frankly, I think its excellent and it was spontaneous and it seems genuine.  Other segments don’t frame the issues well and the media apparently is not interested in talking with actual married LGBT couples so … eh.
