Gay paper outs Fox News anchor?
I was just over at http://www.rawstory.com and among the headlines was "Gay paper outs Fox News anchor. Paper that previously criticised outing, hypocrisy by outers, outs people." Next to that headline is a graphic of Shepard Smith. The headline has a link to http://www.washblade.com but that website is now GONE. Trying http://www.washingtonblade.com is also now gone.

Did anyone happen to see this story before the Blade site got zapped?

1. Blade is up for me. Maybe the article discusses is this editorial.

2. "Fox News anchor outed as liberal" is the headline I'm waiting for
I'm pretty sure any one of them would sooner be accused of being gay, before being accused of being liberal :)

3. It's still here...
I just looked. Both the site and the editorial are up.

Here's my reaction to the editorial:

5. Shepard Smith, Again?
This is how many times has he been outted?

And so what...

(I keep hearing about "oh the hypocrisy"...welcome to life. Someone's lifestyle isn't the issue, it's their politics...that's where the hypocrisy is.)

6. ya, i saw it.
It talked about Anderson cooper, and then Shepard Smith. Said the author had hung out with shep in a gay bar till 3am. Shepard asked him to go back to his place. When the author declined, he invited him to dinner the next night. But poor Shepard got shot down a second time.

11. Maybe he just couldn't afford to buy dinner for himself?
I imagine it wouldn't be the first time a guy has pretended to be gay to get someone to buy them a free meal.

The next question then becomes, were they also kicked-out of their apartment and in need of a place to crash?

And do they have an obscure circulation problem in their penis that requires constant warming to keep it from falling off?
