A Big Thumb on the Scale for "Gay Marriage"

If you'd like to see a typical example of how a major metropolitan newspaper completely skews a "gay marriage" story in favor of the gay left, see Mary Otto's piece in the WashPost today. Almost the entire story is devoted to the ACLU and gay activists and their arguments. (There were no liberal labels.) In the seventh paragraph, we get two state officials briefly defending the status quo. The conservative activist from Defend Maryland Marriage debuts in paragraph 20. The rest is saved for the "right" side of the debate. Typically, both pictures in the print edition featured the gay activists and their signs.
