Watch The Framing: Sunday Talk Shows Bring On Right-Wing Bigots To Discuss DOMA

Why are conservative Christians plagued by scandals and accusations of hate and corruption asked to opine on DOMA?

(h/t Heather at VideoCafe)

It cannot be repeated enough: He who frames the argument wins the debate.

And so it is telling how the networks wish to frame the debate for marriage equality. Who do they book?

With the exception of Hilary Rosen on Meet the Press, did the news shows bother to book a gay person whose life and rights are directly affected? Pffftt...silly liberal!

What really matters is how conservative Christians who are out of step with the majority of Americans (no matter how much they want to deny it and not have that challenged), doncha know?

Can you help us out?
