[See NewsBusters for more.] On Tuesday’s Jose Diaz-Balart Reports on MSNBC, correspondent Sam Brock decried Florida’s new law that would prohibit all grades third and under from discussing issues of gender identity and sexual orientation as unscientific, while asking a same-sex couple if “this is an example of just unadulterated bigotry.” Meanwhile, guest host Yasmin Vossoughian interviewed a kindergarten teacher who feared he would not be able to talk to his students about his personal life.

After decrying the law as “extremely vaguely written,” Brock declared that Florida deserves the blowback it has received, “it seems to be that is based on this idea that kids are exposed to conversations about those two things: sexual orientation or gender identity, might change who they love or how they feel or how they self-identify. Not only has that been debunked by science but that’s one of the reasons why you're seeing such a visceral reaction nationally to this law.”
