ABC tried to get away with mother of all spins on Kevin Spacey alleged child molestation. Not a chance!

Look, squirrel!

Let’s get this straight, Kevin Spacey admits that he may have made sexual advances toward a 14-year-old boy and the media triumphs the coming out as gay angle of the story?

In a case study of how being a member of the LGBT community is revered in today’s pop culture, Spacey released a statement in response to actor Anthony Rapp alleging that the “House of Cards” star tried to seduce him when he was 14 years old.

Blaming alcohol, Spacey said he did not recall the encounter but owed Rapp “the sincerest apology” if it did occur.

Oh, and by the way, I’m gay.

“As those closest to me know, in my life I have had relationships with both men and women,” he stated. “I have loved and had romantic encounters with men throughout my life, and I chooses now to live as a gay man.”

Right on cue, ABC News runs with a headline that qualifies for the mother of all spin jobs: “‘I choose now to live as a gay man’: Kevin Spacey comes out in emotional tweet.”

ABC News would soon be joined by other media outlets — see group think — in celebrating the gay aspect of Spacey’s mia culpa. At the expense of a then 14-year-old child.

And the news industry wonders why Americans revile them?

ABC News would later edit the headline amid fierce backlash, as social media was not about to let them get away with such media malpractice.
