Um, this is the governor who’s been trying to throw LGBT homeless youth out on the street. And the Advocate praised him for that (Bolcer called his plan a “rare” success). Frank Rich didn’t notice because he’s straight and liberal and therefore doesn’t care about homeless queer kids, but that doesn’t mean that sucking this politician’s cock is praiseworthy.
The worst thing is: the media doesn’t have to worship people who do things we like! Some people would consider that antithetical to the very purpose of journalism in a democracy. They could have just done a competent interview and asked him about the kids.
