Gnome In the item we ran yesterday about GNOME and the GNU Project, one aspect got snowed under a little bit. It turns out a claim made in the iTWire article about the role a blog post by Miguel De Icaza was false, and even though the claim wasn't ours, I did repeat it, and therefore, should correct it too. I also need to offer apologies for not framing the opening of the article clear enough - had I framed it better, a lot of pointless discussion and name-calling could've been avoided.

Member since:

You know, you're really getting close to the news media who claim all sorts of bullsh*t stories are true, without checking them out first properly.

I have no doubt at all that you will do this again and again and again because people like made up bullsh*t, just like the other sites to get hits.

This reminds me of why dogs lick their balls. It's disgusting but it's what dogs do, just like you and the media. I wouldn't put you quiet up there with the likes of the tabloids, but just keep on this way and you'll get there.

Do you not think that's a bit strong? When was the last time you saw a member of the mainstream media printing a front page retraction?

As for bias; I don't see anything wrong with a bit of bias in journalism, after all it is peoples' own personal opinion that makes for an interesting conversation. The caveat being of course that this bias is made crystal clear to the audience which can be said for all but a few of Thom's articles that I have read.
