GLAAD Slams Utah NBC Affiliate for Not Broadcasting NBC's 'New Normal'
The Hollywood Reporter ^ | Aug 27 2012 | Aaron Couch

Posted on 08/27/2012 3:33:11 PM PDT by scottjewell

GLAAD is criticizing a Utah NBC affiliate’s decision not to broadcast The New Normal this fall.

"While audiences, critics and advertisers have all supported LGBT stories, KSL is demonstrating how deeply out of touch it is with the rest of the country,” the group's president says.

Ryan Murphy and Ali Adler's new comedy, which tells the story of a single mother who becomes a surrogate for a same-sex couple, was deemed “inappropriate” by Salt Lake City-based KSL-TV.

"Same-sex families are a beloved part of American television thanks to shows like Modern Family, Glee and Grey’s Anatomy," GLAAD president Herndon Graddick said in a statement. "While audiences, critics and advertisers have all supported LGBT stories, KSL is demonstrating how deeply out of touch it is with the rest of the country."

Jeff Simpson, CEO of KSL parent company Bonneville International, revealed Friday the station planned not to air New Normal, citing crude language and offensive characterizations. The same station decided not to air NBC drama The Playboy Club last fall.

“After viewing the pilot episode of The New Normal, we have made the decision to keep it off our fall schedule," Simpson said. "For our brand, this program simply feels inappropriate on several dimensions, especially during family viewing time.”

Graddick suggested that a meeting between Simpson and local LGBT families might change the CEO’s opinion.

“We know that if he would, he would see that not only are our families normal, but by citing 'crude and rude' content and refusing to affirm LGBT families, KSL and Mr. Simpson are sending a dangerous message to Utah,” Graddick said. “They should make that right."

New Normal previously came under fire from the conservative group One Million Moms, which called for a boycott last month. Castmember Ellen Barkin took to Twitter o Friday to shore up support for the show being broadcast on KLS.

"Anyone in Utah interested in @NBCTheNewNormal please clog up @ksl5tv feed 4 their blatantly homophic decision 2 not air the show #KSLBigots," she wrote. She also tweeted: "Shame on u ‪@kslcom‬ not airing ‪@NBCTheNewNormal‬ So L&O SVU (rape & child murder) is ok? But loving gay couple having a baby is inappropriate?"

But Simpson has argued that in the age of digital distribution, anyone who wants to view New Normal will be able to do so online or through means other than KLS.

She doesn't seem to grasp that Law and Order SVU would be conveying rape and child murder as heinous and criminal. The New Normal attempts to portray gay men hiring a surrogate as "the new normal" when many don't want youth to see this as such.

The show is totally pandering and self-willed political & social promotion, not “representation” of anyone, and not representing a “new” “normal”.

IMHO, KSL is demonstrating how deeply out of touch NBC is with decent people.

Perhaps Castmember Ellen Barkin should go invest her money in a broadcasting company and she can show whatever she wishes.

In the meantime, she can continue to produce her crappy show and shut her pie hole about what they choose to broadcast on the network which they own.

Ms. barkin should take the advice of another liberal icon “Liz Lemon” and just suck it!

Very true, but the more they push such a purview as the new normal, the more it will one day really begin to be seen as this. We learned that from the other crap they normalized.

I don’t watch any shows that have queers in them.

Maybe I am not normal, well, I don’t want to be normal if that is what we judge normal by.

The entertainment world is filled with queers, nepotism, liberals ,miscegenation, and a lot of other things I don’t consider normal, It is no wonder that thjey push their agenda. The shame is they are winning.

Can you please cite your evidence for this statement. Not just wishing about how you'd like things to be, but the real, hard, unadulterated, factual evidence based on a representative sample of the adult population in the U.S.

Umm, just as I thought. You don't have any evidence, do you.

Yeah, I think GLAAD has jumped to a conclusion there. Just because it is being forced on people doesn’t mean they have become “beloved” of same.

Right, they push their agenda, they skew their polls, they make up their own fairy tale, and insist its true. Just like I might want to insist I can fly to the moon.

In the end, their self-delusion will catch up with them. For the times they are a changin.

What does a plastic food wrap have to do with what’s on TV? So now commercial products are dictating what should be shown on TV?

GLAAD - not GLAD? Sorry!

[You can use GLAD To wrap up the crap tha GLAAD promotes and throw it down the crapper, so there is something to be salvaged out of this insanity]

Bingo, scott.

This show is sickening - down to the “bigotted” grandmother, who of course is conservative. Always, conservatives are the whipping boys of Hollyweird.

Sorry, Utah did right, because it IS inappropriate. Of course, 90% of shows these days are inappropriate.

These sexist homosexuals are using a woman’s body as a breeding machine-—AND denies a human being the NATURAL RIGHT to have his biological mother and father raise him to adulthood to shape his “reality” which does NOT discriminate against women or men.

They are trying to NORMALIZE a VICE-—make sodomy a “Right” and “Normal” which dehumanizes women’s bodies and reduces babies to a commodity to be bought and sold—along with the woman’s uterus.

The morality of this show promotes extremely EVIL ideas-—along with the destruction of NORMAL . They are creating an ARTIFICIAL “home” for a child which is a denial of his Natural Rights which come from God and are inalienable. These people do NOT have the RIGHT to put such evil ideas in the heads of children. It is inhumane and degeneracy.

All homosexual societies since Ancient Greece and Rome use boys for sexual recreation since it is a learned behavior. You have to normalize sodomy first—which they are doing-—reducing the age of consent is next—and like the Brave New World-—they will eliminate all restraints on sex acts, since homosexuality removes all meaning from sex. It is a dehumanizing act which removes morality from all sex acts-—if anal sex is “good”, then nothing is evil—even man/boy “love” which is the cornerstone of homosexual behavior since the sexual identity formation of children has to be warped to act in such an unnatural, debasing way.

Corey Feldman who was raped by the homosexual rings in Hollywood along with other child stars, stated that pedophilia was the norm in Hollywood.

Those Hollywood producers are still out there raping since they were never named and charged. (They don’t condemn homosexuality like the Catholic Church, so it is okay for them). They are making movies like Glee to normalize Vice —for the children and trying to sexualize young children (like Brave New World).

What young children see on TV becomes normal for them. It shapes their reality—much like boys in Ancient Greece were sodomized by the men—they courted boys-—it was “normal” as was child sacrifice and no rights for women who were just breeders——hey-—just what these sexist homosexuals are doing—using a woman as a breeder.

It is to brainwash and condition the young children. There is a big following of the homosexual agenda in the young-—because of brainwashing inside the public schools and media promotion 24/7—Pride Day brainwashing agitprop and “Heather has Two Mommies” and Daddy’s Roommate, Tango Makes Three, etc, etc, (all biological lies but the agitprop is allowed in public schools).

The constant agitprop in public schools and on TV like Will and Grace is to “normalize” sodomy. To erase Christian Ethics and replace it with the occultism/Satanism/Atheism/Paganism of cultures like the Ancient Greeks.

Before they can promote pederasty—they have to normalize sodomy to destroy the resistance for the act-—corrupt the normal sexual formation of children (by destroying the innocence of children). Then there will be much less resistance to the act. All vulgar art and media is to break down morals and destroy the concept of God.

Yes, you are correct: Step by step they have pushed their campaign stealthily in the schools and created an immune generation. Without the public schools, it would not be a “fait accompli” as it is now.

Exactly

I do believe that a majority of people in the U.S. are tolerant, but the left confuses tolerance with acceptance and they are two very different things.

Something that has always puzzled me....

Why would an actor or actress consider playing a homosexual as a career enhancement?

I was in a dinner theater as a detective and the guy who wrote and directed it wanted me to play the role as a funny-light-in-the- loafers character.

I told him that there was not one thing funny or even slightly humorous about homosexuals and to either rewrite it or find someone else.

He rewrote it.

I also refuse to refer to sexual deviants as "gay."
