ABC News investigative reporter Brian Ross conveniently failed to mention in his Monday night hit piece on Michele Bachmann that his leading authority for the view that homosexual orientation cannot be changed is an ardent advocate for acceptance of the homosexual lifestyle.
The omission takes on added significance in view of a 2007 report on the website of the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA) that Ross hosted a fundraising benefit for NLGJA and a tour of ABC’s studios. “The event will be hosted by ABC News Chief Investigative Correspondent Brian Ross,” a report on a gay website said.
The NLGJA “stylebook,” which lays down the law to news organizations on how they should reports matters involving homosexuality, puts the term “ex-gay” in quotes, suggesting that former homosexuals do not really exist or that the therapy that helps them leave their lifestyle is not legitimate.
This was the line taken by Ross in a report whose apparent aim was to derail the candidacy of Bachmann, who is leading in the polls in Iowa, where the first GOP presidential caucus takes place. Using material from the homosexual lobby and the far-left Nation magazine, Ross attacked the Bachmann family counseling business, which helps various people, including homosexuals, with their psychological problems.
