Left-wing extremist organizations are throwing hissy fits over NBC's pledge to broadcast the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. They contend that censorship to promote gay rights is the right move. So if Americans want to watch skiing, they are homophobes, who don't deserve the right to watch the Olympics on TV. Accordingly, they are considering plans to launch a boycott against MSNBC.
American Prospect reports that, "The network's half-hearted attempts to appear gay-friendly while broadcasting the Sochi Olympics only underscore its complicity with the Kremlin's crackdown on LGBT rights and freedom of the press."
Leftists blast Russia for so-called censorship moves when they themselves act as censors too. Just ask Phil at A&E's popular TV Show, Duck Dynasty.
According to American Prospect, "There is no longer even the illusion of a free press in Russia—not after yesterday, when the Kremlin on its website announcing the liquidation of RIA Novosti, the leading state news agency. “The move,” the news service in its own account of the story, “is the latest in a series of shifts in Russia’s news landscape, which appear to point toward a tightening of state control in the already heavily regulated media sector.”
Nonetheless, Many Muslims hold similar views as the Russians do on the topic of homosexuality, but when do you hear about the MSM publishing stories about Islam's Jihad on gays?
