On April 26, 1980, CBS-TV aired a documentary titled "Gay power, gay politics," that supposedly described the influence gays had on Diane Feinstein's mayoral campaign in San Francisco in 1979, among other things. It was a badly biased piece of reporting and seemed a major set-back for the struggle for gay rights. Clare Spark discusses this with Pacy Markman, chief political strategist for the Feinstein campaign. Includes a description of the CBS program, and phone calls from listeners that add to the discussion. KPFK.
