  1. When you follow the link in the story about Big Gay Ice Cream getting demoted in the list, FOX News now says it was an "error"and that "A previous version of this story incorrectly ranked a number of the ice cream parlors listed here, and omitted others that should have been included. regrets the error."

    But since their original list not only demoted the BIg Gay Ice Cream while removing several others entirely and adding in some that were nowhere on the first list, while retaining all the same copy, photos, and even referencing the original source, it hardly seems an "error" - more like a flat out lie they got caught in.

  2. So France recognises USA marriages.
    Is that reciprocated in the USA ?

  3. Signorile is correct on the Shepard Smith "issue." The initial reports were that he behaved badly at a bar and was with his boyfriend. Big whoop. It was a statement of fact, not conjecture, and wasn't said pejoratively. Good reporting (whether the incident itself is newsworthy is a different question).

  4. Haven't we all behaved badly in a bar at some time ?
    Do we need to call someone on that ?
    I agree, there's nothing 'pejorative' in reporting a fact.......just unnecessary.
