REGGIE WHITE SAYS HE PRAISES GOD HE'S NOT WORKING AT CBS

          ABC Religion Correspondent Peggy Wehmeyer interviewed
     Packers DE Reggie White on "20/20," one of only a few
     interviews since his controversial speech earlier this month
     to the WI Legislature.  White, on how the speech affected
     his chances of working for CBS Sports: "I lost my
     opportunity to work at CBS.  They don't want me to work for
     them.  Praise god."  Wehmeyer reported White said that "a
     contract with the network was virtually a done deal," and
     after the speech, CBS Sports President Sean McManus
     "canceled, saying he didn't want to have to deal with
     disruptions from gay militants."  White: "That don't make me
     mad.  I'm angry because what I said [about homosexuals] was
     the truth."  CBS issued a statement regarding White saying
     it "hadn't finalized an agreement" with him and that the
     decision not to hire him had nothing to do with "influences
     from any special interest groups" (ABC, 4/27).
