Former CNN congressional producer Evan Glass announced on his Twitter account on Tuesday that he was "thrilled to be joining the board" of Equality Maryland, the main group pushing for the legalization of same-sex "marriage" in the Mid-Atlantic state. Glass added in his Tweet, "With growing support, we will have marriage equality in 2012!"
The self-proclaimed "recovering journalist," who left CNN in April after a 12-year stint, wrote a one-sided article for the outlet's website on January 12 of this year about how Maryland was set for an "expansion of gay rights," just before the proposed redefinition of marriage failed in the state's legislature. Glass extensively quoted from proponents of same-sex "marriage," including the executive director of Equality Maryland itself, but omitted citing opponents of the bill, including the Catholic bishops of the state.
Just days before making his announcement on Twitter, the ex-producer was a member of the host committee for an Equality Maryland event where the homosexual activist group honored its political allies in the state, including Governor Martin O'Malley, Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown, and Attorney General Doug Gansler.
Equality Maryland updated its website on Tuesday to include short bios of their new board members, including Glass:
Evan Glass is a civic activist in Silver Spring where he is president of the South Silver Spring Neighborhood Association and vice chair of the Silver Spring Citizens Advisory Board. As a former journalist for CNN, Evan is delighted by his new ability to help fight for equal rights in Maryland rather than simply cover the story from the sidelines. A graduate of American University, where he double majored in political science and broadcast journalism, Evan is now a communications consultant with Reingold Inc, a boutique firm that works with the public sector in supporting issues related to veterans, health care, and education. Evan and his husband Jason live in Silver Spring.
The former producer's CNN.com article from January is proof that he wasn't just on the sidelines of the public debate over same-sex "marriage," but one of the many slanted journalists in the liberal media.
