No Balance on ABC: Network Features Liberals When Prop 8 Was Passed and a Liberal When It's Overturned

On Thursday's Good Morning America, George Stephanopoulos sought out the reaction of liberal Slate correspondent Dahlia Lithwick to discuss Proposition 8. No conservative guest appeared in opposition. Back in November of 2008, in the days after the legislation banning gay marriage passed, GMA also brought on supporters of gay marriage.
Stephanopoulos asked Lithwick, the legal correspondent for Slate, to comment on how swing vote Justice Anthony Kennedy might rule in a potential Supreme Court hearing.
Lithwick, not exactly using neutral language, responded, "But time after time, [Kennedy's] not just been the fifth vote for anti-discrimination principles. But, he's also been a very, very strong vote for things like dignity and the humanity and the right to choose your own lifestyle."
