I think the issue lies with big corporations showing LGBT support and the debate over whether they're only doing it for good press and increased sales.
As for an impartial news organisation I'm not so sure. I, and I'm assuming the majority of us on here, think showing support towards the LGBT community is a good thing, but from the point of view of people with different political opinions, we're the ones in the wrong.
ITV won't look like the good guys to more conservative/religious folk and from their view, their impartiality will no longer be apparent.
Well an anti-racism group is a ‘political/campaign’ group. But that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t supported. I think there is a judgement call to make for broadcasters and the way I see it is any views that are against pride events are very much in the minority and should be regarded as an extreme view so nothing something that needs to be taken in to consideration.
Steve in Pudsey has raised a fair point and there is no need to take aim at him as it’s clear he doesn’t harbour any anti-pride/anti-gay views himself.
