The new normal causes a storm
(Blogmensgo, September 8, 2012) From September 11, 2012, the NBC television network and local channels will broadcast in the entire United States with the exception of Utah, a very gay-friendly sitcom entitled The New Normal. Chain KSL-TV, NBC partner in the state justifies its refusal to air due to scenes too explicit and language too raw and disturbing.
The scenario is including a gay couple, Bryan and David, who want to have a child through a surrogate mother. The cast of the series is very friendly, co-screenwriter and co-producer, Ryan Murphy, to whom we owe the series Glee and Nip / Tuck, is himself openly gay. And actress Ellen Barkin, who plays the mother of the surrogate mother has publicly asked on Twitter why a gay couple with a child would be more shocking to viewers than the rape and murder of children in the New York series Special Unit .
It was thus a statement of tackling the ultraconservative demanding One Million Moms group, in the name of family values, deprogramming of this series.
Ellen Berkin has also retweeted on August 26, a message very controversial (see screenshot above) Tropical Storm Isaac calling to "throw all the bastards of pro-life activists, anti-education, misogynist, xenophobic, fag breakers ... directly into the ocean. "The message was implicitly aimed at delegates attending the Republican nomination convention supposed to take place in Florida.
Chain KUCW also partner NBC in Utah, for its part intends to distribute The New Normal in such case that KSL-TV persists in it’s refusal.
Comment. KSL-TV chain is indirectly owned by the Mormon Church. Mitt Romney, Republican candidate for the presidency of the United States, is a Mormon activist.
There is of course no connection between these two observations. Just fears about the future of a country if it were run by a guy as crazy about God that George W. Bush and Osama bin Laden met.
