Gay Churnalism: And Now Some Good News...


It appears that Fagburn has been banned from leaving comments after stories on Pink News - Europe's worst gay news service.
Presumably they've got tired of me pointing out that a good deal of their news "reporting" is right-wing bollocks, factually incorrect, absolute nonsense, or what Nick Davies in his excellent book Flat Earth News calls "churnalism".
If the UK's two leading gay news services, Pink Paper and Pink News, have been reduced to lifting stories from the straight press or reprinting press releases without bothering to check their accuracy or veracity, or adding anything to them, one has to wonder what the point of them is.
