    I was about to post this here. I can't believe an editor would green-light this in any form. "Great idea, let's out teh gays in Uganda!"

    Olympic hook up stories are always lame. Outing gay athletes to make yours different is so fucking dumb.

    In my day, children did not run news organizations.

    God, I feel so lucky to have come up when I did, learned the basics of journalism decency instead of this generation trolling free-for-all.

    But it got clicks! [/bluefont].

    And that's about all the bean-counters think about, no matter how disgusting.

    What the hell happened to the Daily Beast? Are they under new ownership or editorial supervision? Noticing in my Twitter feed a lot of stories that used to have no place on Tina Brown's website. They used to be reputable, now they're working the Inquistr's corner.

    I'm guessing that he couldn't come up with a story about an Olympic athlete who has a pet that looks like a cross between a raccoon and a cat.

    Well, now someone, maybe an athlete on Jeter's site, needs to entrap some journalists and write a story about it.

    Maybe young Caleb Hannan can track him down, and get him to speak.
