Non-bombshell: CNN’s Anderson Cooper comes out: ‘The fact is, I’m gay’ | Twitchy:

CNN’s Anderson Cooper officially, publicly came out as gay today. Most Twitter users met the news with a “big whoop” and not much surprise.

Anderson Cooper confirmed what we’ve all known for a while. Kudos to him.—

Some, of course, questioned the timing!

Tell me Anderson Cooper coming out is not at all related to CNN’s recent shoddy journalism and poor ratings. #JumpTheShark

Heh.

People were offended by one thing, though; he came out in a Daily Beast article penned by Andrew “Uterine Forensic Expert” Sullivan. Why, Anderson, why?

So, Anderson Cooper just came out on Andrew Sullivan’s blog?—
