Michelangelo Signorile's Romney Lie

Michelangelo Signorile of Sirius/XM Radio and the editor-at-large of Gay Voices at Huffington Post lies to create a sensationalistic posting.

The title of the posting is Romney Likes 'Being Able To Fire People' for Being Gay.

The first paragraph reads, Mitt Romney surely gave ammunition to opponents regarding his leadership at Bain Capital when he said during a speech on health insurance yesterday, "I like being able to fire people." But he also unwittingly underscored his position on discrimination against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people: He likes being able to engage in it.

The link in the above paragraph which is included and not added by this writer is to another story at Huff Post with combined writers from the Associated Press and Huffington Post.

The title of that article is Mitt Romney: 'I Like Being Able To Fire People' Who Don't Give Adequate Services. But somehow and with utter falsehood and playing the sensation card to get readership to his posting Signorile makes a false accusation about Romney and what he said during a speech in New Hampshire.

In the posting Signorile writes about Romney's stand on LGBT issues including Romney's reversal position on ENDA according to Signorile as he writes about a letter sent to Log Cabin Republicans in 2006 and that would be fine if that was all there was to the posting. As a journalist, commentator, author and radio host he of all people should know about offering misinformation and inflammatory misinformation at that.

Signorile made a clear misrepresentation when he wrote that Romney likes being able to fire people because of their sexual orientation. Several readers of the posting have left comments calling Signorile to task for his spin and out of context verbeage at Romney's expense.

Slap yourselves across the face boys and girls as this is one of the LGBT elites who you depend on for your news and commentary for all things LGBT.

Signorile should be ashamed for this disgrace of professional journalistic ethics.
