"When parents do not have a choice about whether or not they want their children to see this, it is wrong" I don't call it a moment of celebration" It's being pushed in faces. I don't want to see that. I don't want to see cake in your face, kissing each other,"
My Texas Today:
This down home girl not only strives to be the best but
also to bring the best out in others around her. She doesn't let any grass grow

Never trust rich people dabbling at a "career". Especially rich children of scamvangelists.
Amy Kushnir created a small (but rating-lucrative) firestorm when she walked off a Dallas- Forth Worth morning show after discussing Michael Sam's ESPN kiss. She decried the in-your-faceness of it all and said that children, families should not be "forced" to see it. Social media reacted negatively, so Amy got a spot on FOX, naturally, to expound on her family values.
Joe Jervis of Joe.My.God.com got suspicious of such righteous indignation and found out that Amy Kushnir is the daughter of Robert Tilton, the televangelist who was one of the first "prosperity preachers" to be investigated.
It appears that anti-gay Dallas television host Amy Kushnir, who is so terribly outraged by Michael Sam's kiss, is the daughter of legendarily disgraced scamvangelist Rev. Robert Tilton, whose multi-million dollar grifting empire first crumbled in the early 90s following an expose by ABC News. Christian Nightmares points us to this 2011 post on the televangelists watchdog blog Snake Oil, which refers to Kushnir as "Amy Tilton Kushnir."
Interestingly enough, Jervis also points out that bios of Kushnir (like the one above) are exceedingly thin and never mention the father-daughter connection. Check out "My Texas Today" (Kushnir's home page). Her blog is almost non-existant (last post - February and quite innocuous). Her blogger bio simply says "wife. mamma.foodie.girlfriend." Her biggest achievement outside the home is a slim, spiral-bound cookbook - Red Dirt Recipes - which has a whopping 47 recipes. She hosts a radio foodie program and hosts on KTXD's The Broadcast, a "The View"-like local show. In February, Amy played host to the famous Chippendales, fanning her face constantly, apparently unaware that she looked ready to have an orgasm - not very family friendly programming.
The fluff bios, the inexperience, the amateurish attempts
at social media all seem to point to a bored, spoiled, 43 year-old woman
playing at being something - anything.
Was It All About Amy ... And Ratings?
Before the show of family values righteousness, even FOX News would have said, "Who the hell is Amy Kushnir?" With flimsy bios negating her childhood, it's no wonder Amy Kushnir was kept exceptionally local. The fact that she is host of The Broadcast, however, might be due to the history of the station KTXD (formerly KTAK) which started out as the "flagship station" for PromiseLand Television Network.
KTXD was not very well known either, but obviously loved the attention it got from the walk-out:
started the The Broadcast in February 2013 as an opinion-based show. We
selected five hosts who represent a subset of the vast, diverse community that
we serve, and we encourage them on a daily basis to share their personal
opinions on a variety of topics.
