A report aired on Fox-owned WJBK in Detroit has been described as "especially disturbing" by GLAAD, the LGBT media advocacy group. According to a post by GLAAD's Dani Heffernan, several Detroit reporters used language that is considered discriminatory in their stories about a series of shootings being investigated as hate crimes.
