Rep. Jared Polis, a Democrat who represents Colorado’s 2nd Congressional District, is the first openly gay parent in Congress. On Sunday on CBS4 This Morning he spoke about new legislation he’s working on to support the LGBTQ community. Polis recently announced he’s running for governor.

    Greetings News4,

    Thank you for the interview this morning with Jarid Polis regarding the Denver 2017 Pride Parade.

    But as very loyal News4 fans, we were pretty disheartened by the fact that our favorite news channel (News4) REALLY got upstaged by Channel 7, Channel 9, and worst of all Fox News. While I realize that there are many other news articles competing for the 10:00 p.m. news, please know that we felt slighted by News4 that one the nation’s largest Pride events got noticeably less coverage on News4 than on Fox News.

    We would be grateful if you would pass this email along to your news editors. We hope that the most signficant stories will get the best coverage from the best news channel — YOU!!!!

    A loyal News4 fan
