Entire National Media -- Fox Included -- Again Raising Funds for Gay Journalists Group Pushing for More Bias

Once again, all the news networks are rushing to assist the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association raise funds in their annual "Headlines and Headliners" fundraiser in New York City. The host of the soiree this year is ABC anchor Amy Robach.

The NLGJA president is currently CNN producer Jen Christensen. The group is journalists "working from within the news industry to foster fair and accurate coverage of LGBT issues." That's code for "one-sided and very politically correct coverage of LGBT issues." There's a long list of socially liberal media elites attending, including the usual Fox News contingent. Some are wondering if Shepard Smith's attendance will come with an acknowledgment of the rumors he is gay:

ABC: Amy Robach (host); Gio Benitez, Sara Haines, Mara Schiavocampo
CBS: Michelle Miller, Erin Moriarty, Troy Roberts, Jill Schlesinger
CNBC: Simon Hobbs
CNN: Ashleigh Banfield, John Berman, Kate Bolduan, LZ Granderson, Randi Kaye, Don Lemon, Jeanne Moos, Michaela Pereira, Richard Quest, Christine Romans, Nischelle Turner (plus HLN's Jane Velez-Mitchell)
FOX: Alisyn Camerota, Jamie Colby, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Rich Reichmuth, Shepard Smith
Fox Business: Melissa Francis, Gerri Willis
MSNBC: Krystal Ball, Chris Jansing, Thomas Roberts
NBC: Stephanie Gosk, Natalie Morales, Meredith Vieira, Jenna Wolfe

Josh Barro and Patrick Healy of  The New York Times are also slated to appear, as is Jason Bellini of The Wall Street Journal. Media outlets have also offered their corporate support. ABC News is the “presenting sponsor,” while Bloomberg is a “platinum sponsor.” CNN and Comcast NBCUniversal are “gold sponsors.” CBS News and Fox News are “silver sponsors.”
