Headline Muse, 9/30

The direction this country is heading
Is exactly what bigots are dreading!
What’s the danger they feared?
It’s that chaplains are cleared
To officiate at a gay wedding!

Headline: Military chaplains allowed to perform same-sex weddings

Headline: Military Chaplains May Perform Same-Sex Unions

Why two links? The first is CNN; the second is Fox. The stories are quite similar–there’s not much to do but report the facts–but the comment threads are clearly from two different planets.

    Fox News is wising up to how bad their viewers make them look.

    Now you have to click on a link to see the comments.

    How do I see the comment thread on the Fox News site? There’s none under the article and I searched (in vain) for a link.

    Perhaps, even with the separation provided by the link mentioned by Binjabreel pointed out, it became so bad that even Fox was shamed into deleted the thread.

  3. Cuttlefish says

    Martin–near as I can tell, it’s disappeared! Maybe they are cleansing it; maybe Fox has finally plumbed depths that they, themselves, cannot stand. I’ll check back, but I suspect you are quite right.

    Hmmm … do they have an ombudsman? We can ask…
