Washington TV anchor Doug McKelway berates gay blogger Mike Rogers over outing of politicians

”No, I’m not [saying being gay is wrong]. Absolutely not! Take that back, because I do not mean that…. I’m about ready to do a lot more than point my finger at you…. I’d take you outside and give you a punch across the face because that’s not what I mean…. I think you’re hurting innocent people…. You know that people come to their sexual behavior through a variety of means. Some people prefer that it remain private.”
