Fox Reporter Kirsten Powers Slams Fox Reporter Todd Starnes Over Bills To Legalize Anti-Gay Discrimination

Media Matters recaps today’s Twitter feud between Kirsten Powers and Todd Starnes, the lyingest liar this side of Tony Perkins.

Fox News contributor Kirsten Powers and Fox News Radio reporter Todd Starnes continued their feud over Kansas’ anti-gay segregation bill, with Powers calling Starnes out for “lying” in his criticism of her opposition to the measure. The feud between Starnes and Powers began on February 19 with a USA Today column in which Powers challenged supporters of a Kansas bill which would have allowed businesses to refuse to serve gay and lesbian couples on religious grounds. “Christians backing this bill,” Powers charged, “are essentially arguing for homosexual Jim Crow laws.” Powers’ Fox colleagues Starnes and Erick Erickson swiftly criticized the column and defended the Kansas bill as an effort to protect religious liberty. Starnes reignited the feud with a February 20 tweet alleging that Powers – an evangelical Christian who quoted religious opponents of the Kansas bill in her column — showed an ignorance of Christianity.
