NYT writer Jo Becker's new book chronicling fight for marriage equality raises hackles by giving short shrift to everyone except HRC's Chad Griffin and Prop 8 lawyers Ted Olson and David Boies

Andrew Sullivan called it a "troubling travesty of gay history,"  blasting the tome in a long blog post that not once mentioned the title of Becker's book.
     That was only the beginning. Piling on were:
writer-activist Dan Savage (“a bulls--t ‘history’ of the movement for marriage equality”), former New York Times columnist Frank Rich (“For a journalist to claim that marriage equality revolution began in 2008 is as absurd as saying civil rights struggle began with Obama.”), and White House strategist Jim Messina. Bussfeeds legal reporter, Chris Geidner
