FOX 13 Interview

I got home a bit too late to catch the Fox 13 of "Gay, Mormon, & Married" So I logged onto their website and was SO not impressed. First of all I felt so misrepresented--The first guy telling us that the only way we can be happy is to live our lives according to our attractions. His portion of the interview was like watching that Oprah episode on lesbians who used to be married...except this guy was white, had an unsavory neck, and didn't look as put together as O-town usually does. I felt like he was telling me the only way for me to enjoy my life was to give in, give up, and leave everything I love.

Then our very own Fob came on the air--less Oprah, but I still felt so misrepresented.

Ugh, it's late, and I don't have the energy to talk about this anymore. Let's just say I thought the interview sucked, and put the church and E.G. in an unattractive light. I don't agree with everything E.G. says, but they should've been given more than 15 seconds and a bad camera angle that emphasized David Pruden's odd looking gut and neck. And then the foreboding flashing of "Coming Out Straight" and, "Resolving Homosexual Problems" yeah, that wasn't cool either.

I like FoxyJ's rebuttal to everything. A lot.

What do you expect from FOX? Fob was good - honest and not overly eager. But it was all edited so badly that, like you, distaste was all I could feel.

Uck. Thanks for sharing that. Now I'm all riled about and want to burn down FOX 13 or something.
And I guess that's why Sandy what's-her-face-reporter is a weekend reporter on the least watched news station in a small rocky mountain market.

Yeah, well, I still have a hard time getting over the "FOX! THIRTEEN! NEWS!" that they all say after their news segments with such...sincerity.
