  1. Michael Phelps didn't cause the car accident. The police said this morning that the woman ran the red light and hit HIM. Maybe Dlisted isn't the best place to go for truthful news?

  2. That editorial about Prop 8 is a joke. EQCA is a mess.
    Do they know how expensive it is to run ads in an election year??

    I went to the live online forum yesterday to complain and they couldn't even get it up and running, and these are the people we are leaving to get our rights back?

    They have no plans AT ALL that are any different from the unorganized follies they created last year.

    I read somewhere EQCA were the ones who thought showing ads with gay families was "not a good idea".

    Please support Courage Campaign for 2010!

  3. n its infancy, a news gathering was primitive by today's standards. Printed news had to be phoned in to a newsroom or brought there by a reporter, where it was typed and either transmitted over wire services or edited and manually set in type along with other news stories for a specific edition. Today, the term "Breaking News" has become trite as broadcast and cable news services use live satellite technology to bring current events into consumers' homes live as they happen. Events that used to take hours or days to become common knowledge in towns or in nations are fed instantaneously to consumers via radio, television, cell phones, and the Internet

  4. I have to agree with KC about the story about Michael Phelps. Major media stated that the woman was at fault, and I am a little bit disappointed that Towleroad relayed the incorrect story. I think this is one of the best, if not the best, gay blogs on the 'net for news, information and entertainment, but still, a bit disappointed.

  5. It is about time the Secret Service gets involved with dealing with these hate groups that seem to be taking over!

  6. If you liked the pictures of A. Skarsgard, you might like this picture of Jamie Foxx that's hit the internet(s) lately:


    And I'm with "Rad"...with guns being shown outside Obama's Townhall recently, Sarah Palin's campaign trail of hate and the shrill Unamerican behavior of the wingnuts, it's about time people started taking these racists (and yes, I believe it's more about racism than political ideology) to task. Their behavior is immature and mentally unbalanced. With all that W and Darth Cheney have put us through after 8 years, you'd think there would be more action against them than Obama, who's just started his administration.

  7. Funny, though, how the worst violence so far has been against African-American conservative Keneth Gladney, beaten and called the "n" word by liberal Democrats. (And, yes, hate-crime charges will certainly be filed).

  8. I was gonna comment on that dumbass story about Phelps and how all the MSM had that story done correctly awhile ago, AND THEN I got distracted by that Jamie Fox pic. Oh my.

  9. Sorry but butt cheeks ain't nude "David" was nude. Although the semi-naked pics of Mr. Skarsard are appreciated - pity we didn't see stuff like this on True Blood!

  10. Tomrey001,

    I'm fairly sure they do know that a 2012 campaign will cost much more. And the cynical side of me believes there's more to it than what they're telling us.

    Lobbyists are businessmen first and advocates for their clients a distant second. One cannot assume that EQCA actually makes decisions without regard for self-interest just because they say so. While some of their concerns about 2010 are valid, I'm becoming increasingly convinced that part of the motivation for drawing this out is "strategic." And not neccesarily "strategic" because it is in our collective interests. They want to prolong the same-sex marriage battle long enough to make a quick buck.

    Remember, these are the same people who "misplaced" 43 million dollars - including $100,000 of Brad Pitt's and another $100,000 of Al Gore's money - on a campaign where they were outclassed on television and radio. By about a ratio of 9:1 no less. And did I mention that they had six million more than the other side? You don't need George W. Bush's "fuzzy math" chart to figure out that the numbers don't add up here.

  11. Re: Michael Phelps - Dlisted is now a source for news to be quoted? We're so fucked.
