Out Names Gay "Power 50" Shepard Smith, Anderson Cooper, Matt Drudge
zimbio.com ^ | 4/13/11 | janice remenez

Posted on 06/30/2011 5:07:30 PM PDT by Recovering_Democrat

My eyes just about bugged out of my head when I saw a post about this on AmericaBlog. Of course they popped out when Anderson Cooper and Matt Drudge made the list in years past. Maybe since the word "gay" isn't in the official top 50 list, they can't get sued? But then, the truth is a defense in a libel case, and telling the truth really can't be defamation either, right? And I'd have to think that Out Magazine must be pretty sure about the orientation of the people they picked. And Shepard placed sixth! Welcome to the club, Shep.

Not like anyone here is surprised. But now it appears the leading gay press is saying so too.

Wait, are these strong guesses of people who are gay but in the closet? I thought Anderson Cooper was out and proud?

None of those names are any surprise to me . . . I just wonder how many of them are trying to get their lives straight to STOP their slide into this horrible homosexual life-style. To me, that would be news.

Who did NOT know that those three were gay, and more importantly, who really cares?

Is there any actual proof about Shep Smith being gay?

Wikipedia:

“Smith married Virginia Donald, a University of Mississippi classmate, in 1987. They divorced in 1993 with no children.”

Folks kind of expect any number of "entertainers" to be gay, but the guys who make these lists DREAM of things that never were and never will be.

Consequently they are easily discounted.

It's just a game ~ they think it's power, but more importantly they imagine it makes it easier for them to get dates with celebrities.

Matt Drudge has been rumoured to be gay for many years, but Shep Smith is surprising to me, not that I’ve been trying to figure out who’s gay and who’s not.

Smith’s eye liner — or whatever that eye makeup is called — was a big clue.

The fact that he left that ugly stock airbox on the shovel

shep is almost flaming... I remember his Katrina-gasm. I knew for certain when he got into a clawing cat fight with a woman over a parking spot on the fox lot.

Surely you jest. But I don’t really care. Aside from his effeminate behavior he never made that issue his life. What people do in the privacy of their homes is between them and God. Back in those days the Media did not report homosexuality. Gay celebrities did not want their sexual preference known because society imposed sanctions on openly gay people.

Liberace was a great entertainer. The Blue Rinse set was his best audience.
