The Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center are outraged over CBS2/KCAL9′s decision to post and broadcast names and mug shots of the 18 men that were arrested during an undercover sex sting operation in Manhattan Beach.
“It’s shocking that any news operation, but especially an affiliate of a major network like CBS, would choose to publish the mug shots, names and birthdates of people charged with victimless crimes, simply because the charges are salacious or related to gay sex,” chief of staff Darrel Cummings said in the statement. “Publishing their photos serves no purpose other than to humiliate and destroy their lives. We call on KCBS/KCAL to immediately remove the images and names from their website.”
While Branson appeared to be having a stroke on live TV, she was actually suffering from a migraine.
“On one hand, it feels like it was just yesterday because I still remember those feelings so vividly. But, on the other hand, I feel like I’ve come so far and I’m much more comfortable sitting here talking with you about it now than I was a year ago,” Branson told fellow CBS2 colleague Pat Harvey.
This Wednesday marks National Signing Day, where high school seniors can sign their National Letter of Intent on where they intend to play college football in the fall.
CBSLA.com will cover the local football signings during their fourth annual Signing Day show on Feb. 1 at 5:15pm.
“It’s become one of those days that you mark on your calendar,” host Rahshaun Haylock told FishbowlLA. “You know the first Wednesday in February marks National Signing Day and everyone goes nuts about who’s going to sign with whom and which school will end up with the best class.”
Sundays will see Branson and Goldberg starting on CBS2 at 6 a.m. and moving over to KCAL at 7 a.m.
