[See NewsBusters for more.] MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle finally acknowledged on Tuesday the controversy in Loudoun County, Virginia, where the school board stands accused of covering up a bathroom rape in order to protect its transgender bathroom policy. Unfortunately, what started out as a decent enough segment with correspondent Catie Beck soon degenerated into Ruhle wondering why these "culture wars" even matter because they "aren't even major issues."

After Beck gave both sides of the bathroom policy debate a quick soundbite to explain their position, including one parent accusing superintendent Scott Ziegler of a cover-up, Ruhle wondered what the big deal was "But it's just one county. And how have these school board fights become this big part of now a campaign across the state? I mean, that's extraordinary."
