Dumb-arse Reporting

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.
