    Why do you think most Repubs hate Obama? It's because they're afraid he'll out them as gay.

    I like Robin Roberts, but I think she and other media types who still hide their sexuality are cowards. Hopefully the President's announcement will cause people like Robin to give up the charade. I'm not saying that they need to stake their identity to it, but just be more like "yeah, so what--I'm gay."

    Am I the only one who just hates these surly mean-spirited so-called "news" outlets and websites who OUT someone by running a story about their "Fear of being Outed"?

    Robin Roberts doesn't need to be outed. I think the world knows.

    Very good point.

    Anderson Cooper dodges the direct question about his sexuality, by stating his sexuality compromises his objectivity as a reporter. Live with some honor and integrity. Own up to it.

    Keeping them honest???

    I hate surly mean-spirited in general. Makes no difference to me if it's a news outlet, website, or person.

    This is like saying Obama feared his interview with Robin Roberts would out him as black. Everybody knows Robin Roberts likes girls.

    Gawker, still desperately seeking clicks.

    I really wonder if people would really care if Robin Roberts came out. I don't mean that disrespectfully. I'm sure Fox News might jump on it for a bit, but - the world is different. I mean look at Ellen and how popular her show is. Nobody really cares that she's gay anymore. It's just a part of life in this world today. If people don't like it, I guess they can watch Today.
