"Judging by its coverage of President Obama's announcement that he now supports marriage equality, it appears CNN still has a little 'evolving' of its own to do... With a wealth of political thinkers, analysts and strategists to go to - why has CNN turned to Tony Perkins three times in the last few days to represent the 'other side?'"

-- GLAAD president Herndon Graddick condemning CNN for hosting Tony Perkins repeatedly after President Obama announced his support for same-sex marriage. Graddick notes that during two of Perkins' appearances, the hosts challenged him on some statements, but in the Wolf Blitzer report, Perkins made many scurrilous accusations without the host refuting the blatant lies.
