'The Sing-Off' Would Prefer to Not Talk About LGBT Youth

I saw this at and was pissed off. This is just part of the article. Click here for the rest.
I do want to thank Extreme for mentioning GLSEN and the Trevor Project on last Fridays show. Click here for more on the show and the great woman who got a new house.

On Monday's season finale of The Sing-Off, that a cappella reality competition series featuring former Newlywed Nick Lachey, the vocal groups got the chance to visit and perform for any public service organization of their choosing.
The Pentatonix, a coed quintet who wound up winning the competition on Monday, decided to visit the Trevor Project, the crisis intervention and suicide prevention hotline service specifically tailored to LGBTQ youth.
Of course, if you're a casual viewer of The Sing-Off who's never heard of The Trevor Project, you'd think it was a general anti-bullying organization without any specific focus at all. That's because NBC and the producers or editors of The Sing-Off have gone out of their way to edit out any reference to the LGBTQ community in the segment about the organization.
