Radio Host "Gunny" Inflames Anti-HIV & Homophobic Wound

Just a few days ago "Gunny" Bob Newman made the outrageous and unsubstantiated claim that allowing openly gay service members will increase HIV/AIDS in the military. GLAAD issued an action alert demanding that the radio station Mr. Newman works for KOA-AM and Clear Channel Communications reprimand him.

Colorado Media Matters points out that this time, Newman posted a "poll" on his KOA web page, asking listeners to choose between an “unmarried 25-year-old openly serving gay man” and a “25-year-old married heterosexual with two kids” as the source for a hypothetical battlefield blood transfusion.

The action alert is still alive and well. Please contact if you haven't done so, and please re-contact over the new appalling info if you have done so last time.
