When Will Media Catch Up?

John King allows Eric Cantor in this clip to claim that the majority of Americans are opposed to marriage for gays and lesbians. But in fact, in the past two weeks, we've seen the first polls showing a majority in favor. An ABC News poll last week became the first, without civil unions as a choice, to show a majority (49%-46%). Just a few days before that a CBS poll, which included civil unions as an option, had the highest number we've seen when three choices are given and was the choice of most Americans: 42% for marriage, 25% for civil unions and 28% saying no recognition at all for gay and lesbian couples. Would be nice if the media pundits would correct the lies of right-wingers, including Miss California, Carrie Prejean, who continues to say she represents most Americans.
