First of all, every time I see "KY clerk Kim Davis," it takes me a second to remember that KY stands for Kentucky -- and that she's not selling a lubricant. Kim Davis is currently famous as the Kentucky clerk who broke the law and did not do her job when she refused to grant marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
Here's something I noticed. Paula Faris of ABC was the first TV reporter to score an exclusive interview with Kim Davis. It aired on ABC's World News Tonight and repeated on Good Morning America.
Did Pope Francis know about the Kim Davis controversy before he flew here to America? Was it a big news story in Italy like it was here in the U.S.? How much was he told about her and who told it to him before he and she met? And how did ABC News land two exclusive interviews with the conservative Christian Davis?
A member of the controversial Duck Dynasty family of cable reality show fame was a contestant on ABC's Dancing With The Stars. The head of the Duck Dynasty family made some loathsome anti-gay remarks that made national press, such as Huffington Post. He got suspended from his hit A&E cable TV series. A&E is owned by ABC/Disney. The Duck Dynasty DWTS contestant briefly addressed that controversy before her fox trot.
Joel Osteen is a highly popular TV pastor, very telegenic, who's been a frequent guest on Good Morning America. His show airs weekends on the ABC Family channel. I've never heard the friendly Pastor Osteen make an anti-gay remark. But, like Kim Davis and the Duck Dynasty daddy, he doesn't agree with same-sex marriage. He believes in Christian compassion for gay people but he keeps pretty mum on the Supreme Court ruling.
So, with all that ABC thread, do you think Kim Davis has been asked to consider a fashion makeover and a twirl on Dancing With The Stars a year from now? Keep in mind these are just my observations as an average TV viewer. I am not a journalist. But I do wonder if a journalist has noticed the same things. Kentucky clerk Kim Davis on Dancing With The Stars doing a tango to "Jesus Is Just Alright" by The Doobie Brothers. Think about it.
