'Most disturbing thing': Fox News joins 'Pride' party, LGBT propaganda oozes

Fox News, already reeling from its ejection of popular anchor Tucker Carlson, has come completely out of the closet, as it were, using its programming and on-air talent to celebrate LGBT "Pride Month" like never before.

The self-styled "fair and balanced" network, based in heavily gay-populated New York City, has long supported homosexual advocacy behind the scenes through its annual contributions to an LGBT "journalists association."

But in the last two years,  it began celebrating "pride" in June by running pro-LGBT "puff pieces" that are every bit as one-sided as those produced by left-leaning networks like CNN and ABC.

This includes, shockingly, a June 2022 piece promoting opposite-sex "gender transitions" for children that regurgitates transgender-activist talking points without providing the "balance" of an opposing viewpoint. As with several other segments airing under Fox's celebration of "LGBTQ+ Pride Month," that story about trans teen Ryland Whittington was reported by the network's openly homosexual reporter, Bryan Llenas.

With Fox's blessing, Llenas appears to be coming into his own as the network's chief on-air, LGBT ambassador, using his role in the corporation to produce segments overflowing

Fox News earned rare praise from its nemesis, left-wing media watchdog Media Matters For America, for the segment, while conservatives who have been outspoken against the "trans" agenda targeting children, were outraged.

Media Matters quoted Ben Shapiro, Daily Wire editor emeritus, who called the Fox segment “the most disturbing thing I’ve seen in quite a while.”

g with gay- and trans-activist jargon, thus coming off more as a "gay" cheerleader than an impartial journalist.

Below is Llenas' story on Whittington, a biological female who announced she was a "boy" at age five and whose parents support her "transition." The piece, now included in Fox News' growing collection of "Pride Month" videos, features Ryland's mother, who says, citing the potential of her gender-confused daughter's potential suicide, that she had to choose between having a living "transgender" "son” and a dead (non-trans) daughter – a false choice, say conservative critics:

"What extraordinary courage displayed by Ryland, his sister Brynnley, father Jeff, and mom Hillary," Llenas gushed in the segment that first ran on Fox's "America's Newsroom" show. "I want to thank the Whittington family for speaking to us. It's not easy, particularly at a time when transgender issues have been politicized.

"People are afraid of what they do not understand, Dana," Llenas said, condescendingly, to then-"Newsroom" co-host Dana Perino: "This family hopes their story will lead to more understanding, more acceptance, and, ultimately, more love."

Conservative media critic Cliff Kincaid, founder and president of America's Survival, said, "Fox News funds the homosexual lobby and has abandoned ‘fair & balanced’ coverage of the LGBTQ agenda and the GOP’s lack of serious opposition to it."

Kincaid, who has tracked Fox's leftward drift on LGBT issues for decades, cited the Ryland Whittington story: "The channel's current LGBT Pride 'Celebrating Diversity' promotion on its website even highlights a Fox story about a ‘transgender teen’ who began ‘transitioning’ at the age of five and whose mother says it was God’s will.”

Working directly against its brand

It appears that Fox News was just getting started with that one-sided 2022 "Pride Month" pro-trans piece. Since then, and perhaps especially with its p0st-Tucker realignment under CEO Suzanne Scott, the network is doubling down with its pro-LGBT advocacy in the name of "pride."
