More than 1,500 New Yorkers gathered today in Manhattan to mourn the death of a 32 year-old gay man, who was shot down on Friday just blocks away from the historic Stonewall Inn in an apparent act of anti-gay bias.
FOX Host Takes Jab At Perez Hilton
As you may have heard/read/seen, Perez Hilton recently came under fire for his response to Miss California Carrie Prejean's answer at the Miss USA contest. GLAAD issued a statement yesterday about the media coverage surrounding the controversy.
Media Matters for America has highlighted a segment from FOX News' morning show FOX & Friends on their blog:
Steve Doocy, host of FOX & Friends, read this statement from Prejean's grandmother after noting Perez Hilton is "gay and is a liberal activist":
"I don't know why that gay guy, Perez, was even judging a contest with a bunch of girls. That doesn't make any sense. He should be judging a Chippendales contest."
Doocy then responded with chuckles, noting: "Grandma, has got a point."
