Fox News rejects ad featuring gay troops discussing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”

EXCERPT: Once again proving that Fox News has a love/hate (perhaps more hate/hate) relationship with the LGBT community, the right-wing network has rejected an advertisement from the Palm Center featuring openly gay troops discussing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (DADT), according to a press release obtained by Media Matters. Palm Center's communications consultant Cathy Renna told Media Matters that Fox News' ad department wrote in an email explaining their rejection of the ad, "Don't Ask, Don't Tell is still on hold, so claiming the military is planning repeal is incorrect." Renna countered, saying "the ad is a demonstration by Palm that the experience of allied militaries has been that having openly gay service members by their side does not undermine combat effectivenes s. The important thing is that these are our allies talking about their experience."

  1. Way to go Cathy! Fox News and legislators are seriously underestimating the power of the allied community.

    Let's all take advantage of the Thanksgiving holiday to voice our feelings with friends and family on Thursday...
