KMGH 7News Airs Gay Wedding Clips When Discussing Ref. I
Denver’s Channel 7 is getting criticism for not being clear enough on the differences between domestic partnerships and gay marriage.
Colorado Media Matters reports that the station aired clips of gay weddings while discussing Referendum I, a measure that would make domestic partnerships a reality for gay and lesbian couples.
Furthermore, the campaign website of Coloradans for Fairness and Equality, the chief backer of Referendum I, displays the slogan, “It’s not marriage. It’s basic legal rights.” Additionally, the 7News segment included video of an interview with campaign manager Sean Duffy, showing a poster behind him displaying that slogan:
Amendment 43 is a different ballot measure, which seeks to define marriage as between one man and one woman in the Colorado constitution.
