According to a Gawker report, the ABC news anchor — who scored the President Obama gay marriage interview — wasn’t overly enthusiastic about the scoop because she thought it would bring her own sexuality to the forefront.

“Most of the discussions [among TV people] today about why Robin got the interview have to do with her being gay,” a source said.

What seems to be her problem, unless she thinks her privelege class status should be diminished were it Romney become Potus? I think she’s worried, and so the F what.

It's pretty much an open secret, she seems reluctant to come out probably because she doesn't want the issue to define her.

Why would she be afraid of beint outed? I thought being homosexual was a fine, noble thing and that it’s a perfectly normal way to live your life? /sarc

A lesbo trying to get the pres_ent to trumpet the joys of homosexuality who is afraid the pres_ent will drag her ass “out of the closet” and expose her as being a homosexual? That’s weird. Typical commie lib “interview”.

An ABC news anchor, who got her job, and 'scored' the interview with Obama on gay marriage, mainly because she's BLACK and GAY.

Holy Gladiolas! Robin Roberts is a lesbian? I had never thought of that. Wow!
Robin Roberts is from Mississippi. Shepherd Smith is from Mississippi. To my knowledge, they are the only national TV news persons from Mississippi. That means all of the famous TV newsers from Mississippi are gay. Does that mean that ALL of the TV newsers from or in Mississippi are light in the loafers?

Are there any straight people at all in the newsmedia anymore? It seems almost as bad as Hollywood. I’ll never forget that bit of Anderson Cooper going into a girly giggling fit over something to do with Gerard Depardeau. I actually caught it live on air by accident while flipping through the channels. It was ghastly.

Just catching glimpses of the various networks coverage of Obama going “homo” this week, and the news anchors were acting not just excited, but downright aroused. It was beyond embarrassing.

Gotta sell that laundry detergent (or whatever SHOWBIZSPY.com hosts to provide revenue). Remember, for these 'stars', the only BAD PUBLICITY is NO PUBLICITY.

If the 'case' had been that a white heterosexual conservative male was picked to interview the head of our country... would anyone have bothered to write a story, and would you read it ?

ROBIN Roberts was worried Barack Obama would out her as a lesbian.

Translation: Even the MSM knows that Obama will throw them under the bus if it is in Obama's best interest.

First I remember about Robin Roberts was when she was co-hosting the NFL Sunday evening wrapup show with Chris Berman, in about 1984 or 85.
