Sometimes fake news doesn't entail creating lies, but deliberately publishing slanted, sloppy work. With that in mind, the following is a first for this blog. I am posting an article from the One News Now (the online "news site" of the American Family Association to demonstrate what I'm talking about:
Highlights magazine had originally stated that it would not address social issues such as same-gender relationships, but following a backlash from the LGBT community, the magazine has reversed that policy.
Monica Cole, who serves as the director of OneMillionMoms.com -- a division of the American Family Association (AFA) – reports that pro-family advocates are extremely disturbed by the decision."This is the last place you would expect for children to be indoctrinated and exposed to the homosexual lifestyle," Cole insists.The conservative activist told Onenewsnow that many of her organization’s members have already contacted Highlights to cancel their subscription, and she believes they have gotten the magazine's attention because Highlights has back-stepped a bit."They're saying that the decision is pending until the first of the year,” Cole shared. “I'm sure it's not a coincidence that it's Christmastime and people are buying subscriptions for Christmas gifts.”Despite news to the contrary, it appears that Highlights might not move forward with a new pro-LGBT policy.“Then we're also having some supporters saying that some of the feedback they're receiving by phone conversation that they haven't committed to this policy change,” Cole continued.As Highlights appears to be riding the fence on this issue, Cole stresses that it is vital that more parents make their opinion known.
