INTERVIEW: Dallas TV Host Storms Off Set During Michael Sam Kiss Debate
A TV host in Dallas stormed off the set during a debate about Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend on live television after the defensive lineman was drafted by the St. Louis Rams. Sam is now the first openly gay player on an NFL team.
The kiss prompted a debate in America that had nothing to do with football. Miami Dolphins player Don Jones was fined by the team for tweeting, “Omg” and “horrible” in reaction to the kiss.
On “The Broadcast,” Amy Kushnir argued, “When parents do not have a choice as to whether or not they want their children to see this, it’s wrong. […] It’s being pushed in faces.”
After a back-and-forth with her co-hosts, Kushnir left the set. She spoke out last night on The Kelly File.
Kushnir said ESPN used the video of Michael Sam to “promote their left-wing agenda.” After her opinion went viral, Kushnir received death and rape threats, and calls for her to get fired.
“If you are trying to maintain traditional values and views in your home, and if you share them, you’re going to get lambasted because it goes against what’s politically correct,” she said.
Then on Hannity, “The Broadcast” co-hosts Courtney Kerr and Lisa Pineiro told their side of the story.
