Southern Baptists Head Richard Land: Gays In Boy Scouts Will Be Castastrophe

GLAAD gives kudos to the CNN hosts. 
This is a little different from some of the acocuntability we have seen in the past. Berman and Baldwin didn't haul out comments from Land's past so viewers would learn more about his patterns of engagement. Instead, the anchors calmly and quietly challenged most everything Land put on the table. They saw right through his obvious goal of connecting gays with child sexual abuse (despite his protests to the contrary) and reacted in the spirit his words deserved. The anchors didn't talk over him—they simply refused to let their network serve as Richard Land's echo chamber. Bravo.
