CNN Nixes Poll on Gays in TV

CNN Nixes Poll on Gays in TV


CNN removed a poll from its website that asked, "Is the surge in gay TV characters 'bad for society'?"

The poll accompanied a report titled "Too Gay for TV?" on CNN's sister network HLN. The report, according to the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, also used questionable sources. According to GLAAD, the report includes an interview with Dan Gainor of the Culture and Media Institute, which advocates against gay inclusion in the media. The report, however, also included actors Chris Colfer, Eric Stonestreet (at left, pictured with Jesse Tyler Ferguson), and Jane Lynch, each of whom were either nominated or won an Emmy this year.
