A Texas talk show host stormed off set Tuesday after a heated discussion was ignited when she expressed disapproval of coverage showing Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend.

“Can we just agree that this was an opportunity to make news?” KTXD-TV’s “The Broadcast” host Amy Kushnir asked.

“He has every right to do what he wants, that’s not my issue,” she added. “I just don’t want it in my face.”

Freedom of ‘incorrect’ speech is under attack everywhere we look. One of these women actually said that homosexuals kiss in certain movies or shows, so therefore the objecting woman’s young kids need to just handle it. Disgusting.

It’s repugnant.

Some people in this country may not find it to be repugnant, but I am not one of those people.

That’s never going to change either.

Quit shoving this crapola down my throat.

Courtney “Here’s the deal, Suzi” Kerr: vacuous airhead spouting IQ-lowering drivel. ouchouchouch — like walking on sand spurs.

Amy Kushnir, thank you for the dose of common sense and telling it like it is.

“I just don’t want it in my face.”

Exactly, or in my children’s faces!

That was a very interesting discussion. Each viewpoint was represented. I have a feeling if this discussion had taken place over a few after-dinner drinks, there would have been some in your face yelling going on. The nice looking one on the left was the most lobotomized Lib Zombie at the table. The Moderator did a good job, different that you see with Candy Crowley types. This Moderator gave everyone a fair chance to express their views. I could tell the oldest one thought the whole matter was a bunch of B.S. and was close to saying so. It’s good that folks are having these frank discussions.

Statement from KTXD-TV over “The Broadcast” /Amy Kushnir Debate
Posted: May 14, 2014 3:41
PM CST Updated: May 14, 2014 5:20 PM CST

KTXD-TV started the “The Broadcast” in February 2013 as an opinion-based show. We selected five hosts who represent a subset of the vast, diverse community that we serve, and we encourage them on a daily basis to share their personal opinions on a variety of topics.

On Tuesday, May 13, that topic happened to be Michael Sam’s draft day kiss and the controversy it was generating. The debate between our four hosts that day got unusually heated and ended with one host – Amy Kushnir – leaving the set. Ms. Kushnir’s action was a signal of frustration on her part, as she felt she was unable to express her own views correctly.

While KTXD-TV neither supports nor condemns opinions shared by our hosts, we stand behind both “The Broadcast” and Ms. Kushnir. We wholeheartedly stand behind their right to voice their opinions as an integral part of our program. We have clearly ruffled feathers, and in doing so we hope we have advanced the dialogue on this important issue.

——Brian Joyce, Station Manager KTXD-TV

Not in the classic sense of the terms.

Unfortunately, liberals of the modern day have been fascist (at best) for a fairly long time; today's group is so horrendous, fascist might be a nicer term than they deserve......

Communists hijacked the word “Liberal”, like the Sodomites hijacked the term “Gay”.

Yep. We’re entering crazy world; when you’re not allowed to express disgust, and then sent to a re-education camp as that NFL player was - we’re waaay beyond simply being in big trouble.

What is just as repugnant is that ESPN set this all up solely on the premise that this guy is gay...How many 248th draft picks have a camera waiting for them to be drafted???

How many 6 or 7th rounders have a crew at hand waiting for their reaction to being drafting almost at the very end of the draft???

This was all set up not because he was a great college football player, but ONLY because he said he was gay...

ESPN ought to be totally ashamed by this......

15 years ago sensitivity or diversity training was all the corporate rage. Are we now moving to thought camps?

——Brian Joyce, Station Manager KTXD-TV

Two men kissing is NOT an important issue.

You should have let Amy Kushnir keep on walking.

Disrespect on this scale should not be considered "advancing the dialogue".

Anita was ahead of her time, willing to speak out and — even back then, beginning of pc — to pay the ultimate priceS.

I was a kid, and sang (still do, on occasion!) the “Florida Sunshine Tree” OJ song with gusto, and *had no clue* about what she did “wrong”.

It is sad and WRONG that perversion is so (do I really want to say “in our faces”? No, I don’t believe I do...) easily seen by today’s children.

If they wanted to avoid the media circus then all they would have needed to do was sign Sam as a free agent. They went out of their way to have the in your face sideshow.

Looks like Sam is almost guaranteed to start. What will an offensive lineman on the opposing team do in that case? His job is to make the assignment and stop the D from doing its job. If he can make the other player look bad by knocking him into next week then that's bonus. How can he give Sam the same treatment as any other defense lineman would get in normal play? If the offensive player knocks Sam out the backlash from the homoroid community could end that player's career.

It is an important issue only in that it is a result of and contributes to the moral decline of this country.

Otherwise it is just another person getting a lot of attention for an abnormal act.

Good for her. People should be tolerant of the disordered when possible, but there is no reason to pretend the abnormal is anything other than what it is.

Not a professional sports fan, and I don’t watch ESPN, but, based on what I have been reading, I suspect that there are quite a few homosexuals in the management.

Thanks for the chance to clarify Osage.

I thought the elder lady was the one against the kiss, and the blonde was the one who was for the kiss.

Seeing a short clip yesterday on Fox, I though the blonde was the one who walked off, but I thought she walked off because of what the elder lady said.

In reviewing the lip (I did not want to invest nine minutes watching the whole thing) I see now that AMy K. was against the kiss being in her face, and the elder lady was agreeing with her, but Amy walked off anyway.

I thought Amy could not stand the elder lady’s point of view and walked off.That was the impression I got from the snippet on Fox News last night.

Thanks for the chance to correct the record, and for doing it in a nice way.

I heard on the news today that the Rams were not aware of the Oprah Winfrey deal when they drafted Sam — and according to that deal Oprah Winfrey’s cameras are to be given the right to follow Sam around on the football field, locker room, etc.

I guarantee that this is not sitting well with Jeff Fischer or the other players.
