not fair. not balanced.

so Fox News is picking on kids... in this case, transgender kids.

first up the action call issued by glaad is here. however, the video links provided don't go where they are supposed to. so, fwiw, i'm linking them. even though that risks Fox getting hits i'd rather they not have. but someone might see them and want to write an angry email. (see the previous glaad link for how to do that.)

for the first video, even though it's Fox News and even though it's Megyn Kelly wearing her 'concerned' face, which never lifts my mood, i decided to check it out.
her live interview with Mara Keisling of the National Center for Transgender Equality, been pulled from youtube. but you can get it here at Fox News. Fair play to Keisling for keeping a cool head.

as for the bill o'reilly segment, it's here on o'reilly's page. see Is It Legal? Lowdown  - april 13 in the video playlist. "Kimberly Guilfoyle and Lis Wiehl discuss Russian adoption controversy and atheist vs. pope" - the discussion follows those two items in the segment. 

frankly, i wouldn't recommend it. it's hideous. i just hope no trandsgender kid was in the room with this on the tv. o'reilly had the audacity to say he wasn't picking on kids -- after several minutes of displaying nothing short of intentional ridicule. ugh.

i give a damn...
