From Poynter: “This month, the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) came up with a response for frustrated gay rights advocates: the Commentator Accountability Project.

The concept is amazingly simple. GLAAD has assembled a list of 36 commentators who are frequently called upon to offer the other side of the story on gay rights issues from military service to marriage. With each name and photo is a list of partial quotes and links. A quick scan of the material gives the user a primer in the most radical statements the commentator has made.”
