MSNBC host calls out anti-gay right, Sen Ted Cruz for false fear mongering in Houston

The problem with a lot of televised journalism today is that there is no discernment, too much usage of the false equivalency concept, and the inability to get past visuals and dig into the heart of a story.

With that in mind, I must commend MSNBC's Alex Wagner for calling out anti-gay hysteria over the situation regarding the Houston ordinance and especially giving hell to Senator Ted Cruz over his exploitation and grandstanding of the situation. It's nice to know that there still some true journalists out there on television:

Hat tip to Media Matters who provides more background on the pseudo controversy:
