About halfway down an article on Stuff is an egregious piece of reporting.
Rourke’s biggest threat is another actor with a surly reputation, Sean Penn, nominated for Milk, a biopic about San Francisco mayor Harvey Milk, California’s first openly gay elected official.
Really? In what parallel universe did Harvey Milk become Mayor of San Francisco? I thought he was just a mere supervisor (councillor), serving Mayor George Moscone.
Though Harvey was so popular in his gay-centric district of Castro, he was known as “The Mayor of Castro Street”.
A little bit like the self appointed Mayor of Newmarket, Cameron Brewer.
In their rush to Australianise the Oscars, the AAP have dispensed with the importance of history and facts.
