Accuracy in Media

A CNN article summed up the liberal outrage over an organization’s private decision to filter what it wants in its parade and what it doesn’t:

The controversy began on Tuesday, when OutVets, which represents LGBT veterans, announced on Facebook that it had been denied a spot in the March 19 parade.
In a message Thursday on its website, the council explained that OutVets had not been officially rejected from the parade, but it had not adhered to rules.
It said OutVets was “informed that our Code of Conduct prohibits ‘the advertisement or display of one’s sexual orientation,’ and that the ‘rainbow’ flag on its banners and logo was in violation of this rule.”
The Allied War Veterans Council had for years denied gay groups from marching in the parade, even winning a Supreme Court case for the right to do so.
