Sure, the original Star Trek was good... until they tried to ram racial diversity down everyone's throat by having Kirk and Uhura kiss.

Roddenberry was a "liberal" who was a WWII Air Corps pilot and an LAPD officer. Fat chance of any libs today having credentials like that.

Exactly.

He used the show to promote equality and acceptance... no different than what Glee, or GCB, or any of the other shows that Bozell rants about try to get people to think about. Point is there were people like Bozell complaining about those 'liberal' values back in the 60's and they're still at it 40 years later.

Roddenberry was a liberal and used Star Trek as a vehicle to get his message out. Still, it was a pretty good show for the time.

The new frontier just keeps arriving. New York magazine reports NBC programming chief Robert Greenblatt has given the go-ahead for a new sitcom called "The New Normal." NBC's new normal is about two gay men who start a family using a surrogate. Greenblatt is apparently so enamored with the concept that he's strongly considering having the 20th Century Fox TV-produced sitcom launch by August, following NBC's broadcast of the summer Olympics.

The show comes from Ryan Murphy, the gay creator of "Glee," "American Horror Story," and "Nip/Tuck." This is only part of a growing Comcast/NBC Universal campaign promoting homosexuality.
