Maggie Gallagher MIA for MSNBC NOM Document Segment: VIDEO


MSNBC's Thomas Roberts did a segment this morning on the damaging NOM document dump with Truth Wins Out's Wayne Besen and NOM's Maggie Gallagher, but Gallagher was not present when it began even though she confirmed an hour beforehand, so Roberts just showed an empty chair, Equality Matters reports.

Roberts_besenSaid Roberts:

"This empty studio chair in Seattle was supposed to hold Maggie Gallagher...although she is missing in action...I would say 'hi Maggie', but you're not there!"

Roberts went on to discuss the documents with Besen and the race-baiting done by NOM. Gallagher was not there to spout off in their defense.


UPDATE: Roberts tweets to us, "Maggie was booked in the wrong studio. She will be back. Our mistake."

  1. I don't think the headline is particularly misleading. Maggie WAS missing in action, until it was discovered she was sent to the wrong studio.

  3. Maggie, er, Rick has no problem with her/his buddies at FOX go on the attack. Why is this not okay for Mr. Roberts?

  6. As hateful and bigoted as Ms. Gallagher is, I think it serves no purpose what-so-ever to make disparaging comments about her appearance. Ad Hominem attacks are weak, childish, and not at all productive.

    That said, the tactics exposed in these recent documents are reprehensible.

  7. Love my Thomas Roberts. He is not cheerleading. He is reporting. He is also reporting for MSNBC which supports advocacy journalism.

  8. ugh. Rick, just quit LYING. Just STOP. Characterizing NOM as a "political organization" is like saying the KKK is simply a "club". You're so stupid.

  9. Now that NOM has revealed it's animus toward not only the GLBT and minority communities I wonder how all those Roman Catholic Dioceses feel about donating tens of thousands of dollars to this bigoted organization.

  10. So glad I am not a self-hating homosexual. Get some counseling Rick.

  11. Amazing, isn't it, how much more rational the conversation on Marriage Equality becomes when you simply exclude the fanatical opposition?

    Honestly, I'm surprised the 24-hour news networks don't bring Sheri Sheppard on all the time to educate the viewers on how the Earth is actually flat. Who speaks for the "Flatters" if not Sheri?

  12. Robert George, founder of NOM, just was appointed to the US Commission for International Religious Freedom. NOM’s talking points, arguments and strategies come from this man, who calls for the arrest and imprisonment and promoting bigotry of LGBT people. If you believe NOM’s tactics are reprehensible, please take the time to fill out this petition on the White House’s webpage condemning the appointment of Robert George. He will use this official US government position as a platform to spread vitriol against LGBT people globally. Pass the word along and post where you it is appropriate.!/petition/condemn-appointment-bigot-robert-george-us--commission-international-religious-freedom/TFPJSmSh?
