NBC Times Today Anchor’s “I’m Pregnant & Lesbian” Outing to Influence Supremes on Gay Marriage (After Demoting Her for Gayness)
You’ve probably never heard of Jenna Wolfe. And if I told you she is the Puerto Rican/Jamaican Jewish loudmouth pregnant lesbian anchor/newsreader on NBC’s “Today” show, you’d probably tell me I was just describing Juanita Epstein in the updated, politically correct remake of “Welcome Back Kotter.” While I was away for Passover, Wolfe outed herself as a lesbian on yesterday’s “Today” show, by telling viewers that she’s pregnant and that she’s been with her “girlfriend,” NBC News correspondent Stephanie Gosk for three years.
Call me paranoid, but it’s pretty clear why NBC allowed this on-the-air announcement of a nobody weekend newsreader and why the announcement was made yesterday, as the Supreme Court was hearing arguments on two gay marriage cases.
Timing is everything. And there are no coincidences.
Unless you’ve been living inside a mushroom, you probably know that the Supreme Court has been hearing arguments for the last two days on two cases regarding gays and lesbians seeking government recognition of their unions–one concerning a woman whose lesbian lover died and the survivor was not entitled to avoid federal estate taxes unlike legal spouses; and the other concerning California’s Proposition 8. As longtime readers know, I believe in marriage . . . between one man and one woman. And that’s the only marriage there has ever been in civilized societies.
And NBC News is clearly in your face about which side you should take on this issue. Have you ever heard of any other NBC News employee announcing her pregnancy on the air? Or how long she’s been with her significant other, who is also an NBC News employee? It just doesn’t happen. . . . Unless the preggers chick is gay and wants to pimp us on gay marriage. Wolfe and Gosk have a People Magazine story online and in Friday’s print edition, also carefully timed to coincide with the gay marriage debate, announcing they will get married. And it’s no surprise that NBC also announced that Jenna Wolfe’s “pregnancy-blogging” and “mommy-blogging” began on the second day the Supremes considered gay marriage.
Well, for one thing, both Wolfe and Gosk are semi-attractive and are thin and in good shape. They are not the usual, typical, brushcut-endowed, fat, ugly women who make up most of the lesbian population. And Wolfe has, for years, pretended to be straight on the air at “Weekend Today,” constantly talking about guys and whether or not they are “cute,” etc. Wolfe is a physical trainer, who wore sexy, scanty gym outfits and bikinis on the show sometimes, not the stuff of usual lesbian attire. And Gosk, though she has a pixie haircut, looks more like a preppy J. Crew model than a ticket holder at the WNBA All-Star game. NBC wants us to see lesbians as “just like us.” And these are the types who help push that message.
On the other hand, Wolfe was recently demoted from anchor to newsreader at the network’s “Weekend Today” show. Some speculated at the time inside NBC her demotion was because it was well known around NBC that she’s a lesbian, and the network knew the secret would get out. Insiders said NBC felt that the straight female moms the network is trying to reach would not relate to Wolfe. (She was also annoying, immature, and obnoxious on the air.) A straight, married, heterosexual mom–Erica Hill–was hired to take Wolfe’s place as the primary female host of the show.
So, yes, like many hypocritical, limousine liberals, the gang that runs NBC News doesn’t exactly practice what it preaches. Not that this should be news to you, me, or anyone.
But, it’s worth noting, that despite demoting the lesbian, NBC has a use for the lesbian when it wants to shove its definition of marriage down America’s throat.
NBC – the National Bullsh*t Network. Do as they say, NOT as they do. And celebrate Jenna Wolfe’s and Stephanie Gosk’s impending new baby . . . who will grow up without any father to speak of.
No matter how much Wolfe blogs about it, her baby daughter will never know how to interact with men and be treated properly by them because their won’t be one in her life.
Hey, I guess that’s why they call it, “The Peacock Network.”
