    Jezebel link? Isn’t Gawker currently being sued by Hulk Hogan over a sex tape?

        I just find it a bit hypocritical that people continue to associate with Gawker Media when they publish revenge porn.

          They published salacious celebrity gossip in the form of a sex tape, sickening sure, but hardly anything other web networks haven’t done. Other networks that are still seen as valid news sources at that.

          From everything I’ve seen this was to further clarify other gossip not as “revenge”, which is journalistic whether you like it or not.

          And it most definitely does not invalidate all stories on all of their other sites just as than every story from NBC News are not invalidated by Brian Williams.

          I do get your point, I just think that each story needs to be judged on it’s own merits, especially when it comes to opinion pieces as this is.

    Oh, ICT had two articles I thought Skepchick might be interested in.

    Here’s the first, about violence against indigenous women I will add that some elements in the world of the internet have called Harper a sellout because he wants to use UNHRC to talk about…human rights.

    The second, from Suzette Brewer (no relation), is about the Evangelical-led adoption industry’s attack on Indian children

      There is not enough reporting on the plight of indigenous populations, period.

      Here is another one I came across recently.

      It’s disgusting.
