Dr. Phil on Prop 8


Tune into talkmiester “Dr. Phil” today to see a debate on Proposition 8 and the larger issue of same-sextn2marriage. I got to see the episode early via a special Internet link provided by the show’s producer CBS Paramount yesterday. My full take is at The Advocate’s web site. On the pro-marriage equality side they rounded up SF mayor Gavin Newsom, attorney Gloria Allred and HRC president Joe Solmonese. On traditional marriage side they got San Diego pastor Jim Garlow, Maggie Gallagher, the president of the Institute for Marriage and Public Policy and Yes on 8 organizer Jeff Flint. 


Host Dr. Phil McGraw really stayed in the role of moderator. The show featured lots of coverage from the recent protests, extended clips from Yes and No ads, and profiles of a gay couple and their home life and a straight couple who support traditional marriage. But it looks like McGraw will be covering the issue again at least once over the next month. Stay tuned.
