Editor's Note: Earlier today, CNN suspended contributor Roland Martin for some tweets he made regarding the David Beckham underwear ad that ran during the Super Bowl. Martin was the target of a pressure campaign from the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD). What follows after the page break is NewsBusters publisher Brent Bozell's statement.
What's hilarious is that these "homophobic" comments are among the least hateful things this man has tweeted. Ever. If CNN were smart, they'd take this silly GLAAD hysteria and use it to their advantage. Kicking Roland Martin off their air permanently and relegating him to TVOne would be the smartest possible business move. Plus, it would allow the lefty loons at MSNBC to scoop him up which is where he really belongs.
