<p>During a panel discussion on Tuesday's NBC <em>Today</em>, guest panelist Carson Daly, host of <em>The Voice</em>, ranted over the Supreme Court's upcoming ruling on gay marriage: <strong>"The more conservative the Court decision is, the more backlash there'll be by the people....I can't believe that we're even discussing this, it still seems so archaic. Because there is a new normal out there. We gotta move on."</strong><br /><br />Attorney Star Jones compared gay marriage to interracial marriage and voiced her agreement with Daly. NBC chief medical editor Nancy Snyderman argued that even if the Court decided against gay marriage, it would inevitably become the law of the land: "I think we're going to see a generational shift. Younger people almost think this is a no big deal. And because, much like the civil rights, once it's institutionalized, there will be an acceptance and I think 20 to 30 years from now, we'll look back at this as a hiccup."</p><p><em>More in the <a href="http://newsbusters.org/blogs/kyle-drennen/2013/03/26/nbc-panel-conserva…; target="_blank">cross-post</a> on the MRC's NewsBusters blog. </em></p>
