^^^forgive me, but why should the backlash against Gayle King have been “painful”? What mortal sin did she commit against you?
Sorry, but I don’t share the disdain for Ms. King. She is a fine journalist, works hard, and that has culminated in her now serving as anchor of CBS Morning news. It’s a fine program which I am privileged to watch 2-3x a week on the average.
She has apologized, repeatedly, to those of you who felt her questioning of Lisa Leslie “dishonored” the legacy of a black athlete of whom a good deal of America was quite fond. But, as Que^^^earlier made clear, the interview that leads this thread is from March, 2020, so the suggestion that Gayle continues to apologize for that interview is a damn lie. In other words, as M&G^^^pointed out, you “got played”. Yet you persist.............
It seems to THIS poster from my perch in the capital of Rocky Top, that your REAL problem is not with Ms. King. But it appears, as other posters have suggested, there is a strain of “misogyny” going on, which manifests itself in a hateful obsession over Gayle King.
Don’t know what woman in your life has caused you so much angst. But DO know that this is not an appropriate forum to address your issues. Look, I am a big fan of Snoop Dogg. But I thought his criticism of Gayle King was hysterical and waaaay over the top. But he eventually realized how absurd his position was and backed down.
So if Calvin Broadus can back down, you may be well-advised to do the same...............Jes sayin’.
