No, CNN, Ellen and Portia Really Are Married.

Wedding Rings.Dear CNN,

Surely you must remember when gay marriage became legal in California--afterall, you covered it here and here.

So why did your coverage of the Ellen-Portia nuptials over the weekend read 'Ellen "marries" Portia,' in quotation marks? That implies the ladies weren't actually pronounced wife and wife--and possibly even that gay marriage isn't actually marriage.

Not cool, CNN.  Not cool.

Sincerely,
Protective Ellen Fan
