GLAAD is blasting KSL-TV, the NBC-affiliated television station in Salt Lake City, Utah, for refusing to air "". Via a statement, the group's president Herndon Graddick says, "While audiences, critics and advertisers have all supported LGBT stories, KSL is demonstrating how deeply out of touch it is with the rest of the country."
He also tries to reach out to Jeff Simpson, CEO of KSL's parent company, Bonneville International. "We invite Jeff Simpson to sit down with GLAAD and local LGBT families," Graddick adds. "We know that if he would, he would see that not only are our families normal, but by citing 'crude and rude' content and refusing to affirm LGBT families, KSL and Mr. Simpson are sending a dangerous message to Utah. They should make that right."
