Editing Anderson Cooper's Sexuality
From Washington Blade
A trusty Blade reader e-mailed an interesting tidbit to me today. It seems there’s been a debate raging over at Wikipedia about the biographical entry for openly closeted CNN anchor Anderson Cooper.
The Blade and numerous other publications have written for years about Cooper’s sexual orientation. Cooper refuses to discuss his private life, even though he’s more than happy to sit for endless interviews and to be featured on magazine covers and in CNN’s ubiquitous ad campaigns promoting his show.
He told New York magazine in 2005, “You know, I understand why people might be interested. But I just don’t talk about my personal life. It’s a decision I made a long time ago, before I ever even knew anyone would be interested in my personal life. The whole thing about being a reporter is that you're supposed to be an observer and to be able to adapt with any group you’re in, and I don’t want to do anything that threatens that.”
