On May 14, KOLO News — a local ABC affiliate in Reno, Nevada — previewed a story about how marriage equality can benefit the local economy by comparing same-sex unions to “sin.” “Historically, Nevada has made a living off of sin: quickie divorces, prostitution, gambling,” anchor Sarah Johns said in the preview. “What’s one more sin added to the list if it will improve our economy?” Nevada’s constitution bans same-sex marriage currently, though Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) recently embraced the idea of marriage equality in the state. Watch the preview:
