'Former Fox producer, discredited study playing roles in Russia's anti-gay crackdown' and other Friday midday news briefs

Longtime Fox News Producer Testified In Support Of Russia's Anti-Gay Laws - The rotten apple doesn't far from the tree, does it. First we find out that NOM was involved, and now a former Fox News producer. How many more Americans were involved in pushing anti-gay laws in Russia? This is slowly but surely blowing up to be a huge controversy.

PA Gov. Corbett compares marriage equality to incest

And this wasn't the smartest thing to say:

 Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett has compared the marriage of same-sex couples to the marriage of a brother and sister during an appearance on a morning TV news show.

The Republican made the remark Friday on WHP-TV in Harrisburg when asked about a statement his lawyers made in an August court filing.

The attorneys had said gay marriage licenses have no "value or legitimacy" in Pennsylvania and can't be defended in court. They compared gay couples to children, who can't marry because a 1996 law says marriage is between a man and a woman.
Corbett has called that statement inappropriate. On Friday, he said he thinks "a much better analogy would have been brother and sister, don't you?"
