More on the NBC from GLAAD

However, when it came time to broadcast the diving finals, watched by millions of people during prime time, NBC did not show or mention Mitcham’s family – namely, his partner and his mom. Given Mitcham’s unique story, and his amazing late-in-the-game victory (he scored four 10s in his final dive), NBC should have highlighted his partner and mom in the way that they’ve shown the families and stories of other medaling athletes.

I’m not the only one who noticed that NBC missed the mark here. Yahoo Sports, Think Progress, Sporting News and other outlets are questioning NBC’s glaring omission.

GLAAD is reaching out to NBC to find out why they chose to leave out his partner and mother during the broadcast. Check back here for updates.

Sometime I believe Glaad does more damage then good. Face it they don't have a great track record, in my opinion. In most cases Glaad is just as two-faced as any Congressman.

Children should't be subject to life long medical choices

Very interesting statement, which I'm sure the #transinc community will claim to be Transphobic.. in natural. There is nothing bias ...
