BREAKING! STOP THE PRESSES! SCOOP OF THE CENTURY!
Posted by gerardvanderleun at July 2, 2012 8:09 PM. This is an entry on the sideblog of American Digest: Check it out.
While I was aware that AC was really DC, I kind of appreciated the fact that he kept it mostly to himself. I could dismiss him as a shallow dolt without fear of being called a racist or homophobe -- not that I don't relish being called a racist or homophobe. It was just different. Now he's spoiled it.

Straight folks are getting rarer and rarer in the media.

The only one who didn't know he was gay was Anderson Cooper. I would expect more style from Gloria Vanderbilt's son.
Now when is Shep Smith coming out?

Anderson Cooper is a guy? Holy crap, I didn't know that. I thought he was a lesbian or something.
You know... Like Chris Hayes over at MSNBC, the one who looks like Rachel Maddow. Or does Rachel Maddow look like Chris Hayes? Aren't they lesbian lovers, too? Or are they both gay? I can't keep it all straight.

In the 19th century they called homosexuality: "the love that dare not speak its name", now we can call it: "the love that will not shut up".

And that's the way I am. This is Anderson Cooper. Good Night

This is the most shocking coming out since Clay Aiken.

Not a laughing matter. If we've lost Anderson Cooper to gayness, we've lost the whole country :-D

Now for a few words on that La Raza-Leprecaun, Soul-idad.

... and yet another Captain Obvious sighting.

Dear Mr. Editor: Mercy! Please do something to move this simper from the top of the queue.

Just when you thought CNN couldn't any more thoroughly blow.

So he needed to do something to save his show. That's the reason why all of these people come out (was he actually in?) of the closet, right?
Posted by: Mikey NTH at July 3, 2012 11:15 AM
So, AC 360 is really DC 24/7.
Think they'll change the name of the show?

Nice double entendre there.

It was such a nice world when we all knew our place. Hairdresser, make-up artist, decorator - for sure - or the crossover jobs like waiter or chef - those were all acceptable fag professions. What's more we kept it to ourselves. No in your face street parades of perversion. We knew we weren't as good, that our morality sucked (pardon the intentional double entendre) and took our medicine with the proper whimper. One can certainly sympathize with a society that now has to put up with gaggles of screaming queens and lisping limp wristed publicity hounds who have the audacity to flaunt it all. Worse yet are those like Anderson Cooper who show restraint but finally succumb to the jibes of gossip mongers. What a weak sister indeed.
Pardon me, however, while I try to reconcile the understandable disgust at such brazen displays with what appears to be equal disdain for those who keep it to themselves. Like Hemingway, a closet case who spent his entire life trying to prove to the world that he was a real man, and is now the object of ridicule and scorn. He did exactly what you all expect, didn't he? That is, realize what an utterly worthless human being he was and commit suicide.

If you're still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you'll know which is right for you.
