Fox News Host Shannon Bream Stumped Why Businesses Can’t Discriminate Against Gays
Fox News host Shannon Bream was stumped last night over why businesses cannot discriminate against gay people and why gay people would try to legally force a business to not discriminate against them (as black people did in the 1960s).
Amazingly, Bream actually went to law school and was a lawyer before becoming a Fox News host.
Before joining Fox News in 2007, Bream practiced corporate law in Tampa, FL. In 2000, she left her legal career to pursue journalism, eventually getting noticed by Fox News’ Brit Hume. She joined Fox as the network’s Supreme Court reporter and is the host of Fox’s Sunday show America’s News Headquarters.
Bream is also a devout Christian who claims to have been inspired by the work of the notoriously homophobic conservative activist Jerry Falwell. Bream attended Falwell’s right-wing Liberty University for her undergraduate degree, and in May of 2013, she became the first woman to deliver the keynote address at her alma mater’s commencement ceremony.
