KSL is not against kissing, although Channel 5 reporters were apparently told to avoid showing it when reporting on the court decision overturning Utah's ban on gay marriage.
But that, according the top KSL news executive, is not station policy.
"While we don't seek to include it in the news, KSL has no official policy on kissing - either heterosexual or homosexual," said Tanya Vea, KSL's executive vice president of news and cross-platform development.
It's sort of a weird sidebar to the story that has dominated the news in Utah since the judge issued his ruling on Friday. But rumors have run rampant that KSL has banned gay kissing on its newscasts, despite the fact that Channel 5 has aired video of just that since Friday.<
