In Depth: Prop 8 Trial
Today’s In Depth topic is same sex marriage, tied to the closing arguments in the Prop 8 trial in California. It’s an easy choice, since it’s such a polarizing issue. And, regardless of which side of the issue you fall, you should want to know the outcome since it sets a precedence for the legality of same sex marriage across the nation.
What was tough was finding a balance. Admittedly, ABC and CNN sent more sound bites from those for same sex marriage than those against. In fact, I could only find one bite from those against, that being from the lawyer for the defendants in the trial. It’s a great bite, filled with more substance than any of the for same sex marriage bites, to be honest. However, it’s only one sound bite. I ended up pulling a bite from yesterday to help balance the viewpoints on tonight’s show.
