MD: Fox News’ Affiliate Supporting Marriage Equality Repeal

Maryland Marriage Equality RepealMaryland’s marriage equality law hasn’t even been signed yet, but Baltimore Fox News affiliate WBFF-45 has endorsed a referendum effort to repeal the measure.

It reads “Same-Sex Marriage Petition” and links to the site gathering names to force the referendum. Opponents of the marriage law have until the end of May to collect just over 18,000 signatures, then until June 30 to gather the total of about 55,000 valid signatures.

So much for “fair and balanced.” I wonder what the gay employees of Fox News and its affiliates — like anchor Shepard Smith — think about the company endorsing this referendum.
