Maher Outs Republican National Committee Chair
A: When CNN chooses to edit the show for later broadcasts.
The story didn’t end there. When the King/Maher interview was rebroadcast later that night any mention of Mehlman was deleted and the official transcript was scrubbed. (Both are available to be seen and read on the Huffington Post.) Also YouTube sent a "cease and desist" letter to the AmericaBlog web site instructing them to take the video off the site. On this week’s Real Time, his HBO show broadcast live on Friday nights (11 p.m. on the East Coast), Maher plans on outing at least three gay Republicans who have supported anti-gay marriage amendments. He also joked that GOP voters on Election Day wanted to vote a straight Republican ticket but "nobody could find a straight Republican." And when King wondered why someone who was gay would take anti-gay positions, Maher replied "Because, Larry, hating yourself is the greatest love of all."
