I’ve heard it: The media is pushing the LGBT agenda. That was the message Indiana Rep. Tim Wesco offered up when I interviewed him recently on the move in some locales to add civil protections based on gender identity and sexual orientation.

The question re-emerged in light of the Indianapolis Star editorial board’s decision to advocate for legislation defending the rights of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender c0mmunity. Elkhart County lawmakers sounded off on Twitter and I used Storify to convey the response it generated.

Look here to see the Storify item.
