Yesterday, CNN’s Anderson Cooper interviewed Florida attorney general Pam Bondi about last weekend’s massacre at a gay nightclub in Orland and grilled her about her long history of anti-gay activism.
Predictably, extremist anti-gay activist Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association was outraged by Cooper’s treatment of Bondi (as well as Bondi’s poor performance during the interview), so he took it upon himself to answer Cooper’s questions on Bondi’s behalf on his radio program today.
But before he got to that, Fischer announced that because Cooper is gay, he is “disqualified” from covering any stories having to do with the issue of “the homosexual agenda.”
“Anderson Cooper, who is an open, admitted homosexual … therefore ought to recuse himself from any story like this,” Fischer declared. “He has no business trying to do journalism on an issue as fraught with emotion as the homosexual agenda. He’s disqualified from providing any kind of objective journalistic treatment of that topic.”
