CNN’s Kyra Phillips asked: ‘Homosexuality: Is it a problem in need of a cure?’

I watched this jaw-dropping segment on CNN this morning. It was shocking as Andy Towle reported:

CNN’s Kyra Phillips just ran a repulsive and shockingly irresponsible segment on Lowenthal’s efforts in which she asked, “Homosexuality: Is it a problem in need of a cure?”

She then brought on crackpot “ex-gay” Richard Cohen, spewing lies about how people can change their sexuality and become straight, with nobody to rebut his disproven arguments. (You may remember when Rachel Maddow ripped Cohen to shreds over Uganda).

From CNN’s blog: “At 10:40 we’ll talk with the State Assemblywoman who’s heading up the repeal effort. We’ll also talke (sic) with a leading expert on sexual reorientation, who was gay but is now married to a woman and has 3 kids.”

Major fail for CNN.

Kyra Phillips and her boss, Jonathan Klein, owe us an apology.

UPDATED: Andy Towle posted the video. I hope Anderson Cooper takes a few minutes to watch this bizarre display:

On October 27, 2010, Joe was one of five bloggers who interviewed President Obama. Joe is a DC-based political consultant with over twenty-five years of experience at both the state and federal level. Joe has managed political operations and legislative efforts for both candidates and issues-based organizations. For seven years, he was the Director of State Legislation at Handgun Control, Inc. He served as that organization's first Political Director during the 2000 cycle. Joe is a graduate of the University of Maine School of Law. In addition, he has a Masters in Public Administration from Lehigh University and received his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire. Joe also has a fun dog, Petey, a worthy successor to Boomer, who got Joe through eight years of Bush and Cheney. Joe likes to think he is a world class athlete having finished the 2005 Chicago Marathon in the time of 4:10. He has completed six other marathons as well -- and is still determined to break the four hour mark.
