    Huge difference between Judy Woodruff and Gwen Ifill. No idea if this is by design of the producers, but time and again I hear (KQED runs NewsHour as radio/audio) Ifill practice the hackneyed mob journalism referred to by insiders as “freak show.” It’s sad and shocking to me. I rarely hear it from Woodruff, who seems to practice that BBC-like style which very much follows on the tradition of McNeil (sp) & Lehrer. On the newshour I also appreciate Shields & Brooks on election returns, even tho I find David Brooks somewhat tedious, tonedeaf and elitest in his writing.

    Ernie: I’m thinking majority rule, not elite opinion. Yes, we won the battle for the hearts and minds of the college educated and upper middle class, but votes were still going against us until very recently. The DOMA decision was probably key.

    It’s nice to see a report on this without someone like Anthony Perkins on it.

    Anon: the majority of Americans now support marriage equality–not just “elites”.
