NewsChannel 8 talk show co-host Doug McKelway threatened gay blogger Michael Rogers yesterday on live television, DCist reports. McKelway was interviewing Rogers about Outrage, a new documentary on closeted gay politicians and the activists who out them. Rogers, who advocates outing gay politicians who promote homophobic legislation, appears in the film.
“I have a problem with your community,” McKelway says, before telling him (at about the 2:30 mark): “I’m going to do more than just point my finger at you. I’m gonna take you outside and give you a punch across the face.”
