This is an excellent thread summarising Pink News obsessiveness with beating down women in general and JK Rowling in particular

Over 5 days, the released 40 articles on JK Rowling

They are supposed to be an LGBT organisation but focus almost exclusively on trans promotion and beating off any dissent to the dogma they push. Particularly for women.

They are also heavily aligned with Stonewall's corporate programme.

I thought this as well. Why is the media exempt from harrassment laws?

Somebody on another thread a couple of weeks ago said that Prick News are a publication with no journalistic accreditation (not sure of the official terms).
Therefore to use an analogy; their status is more akin to you say your local fb/gumtree page compared to a fully fledged legal Companies House accredited business.

Just a reminder that Prick News is wholly reliant on clicks. So don't click!

Absolutely.

They don't subscribe to IPSO (independent press standards org) and I have never found a mechanism to complain.

It's basically a blog.

A blog that raises money by clicking onto their site.

Got it.

Thanks OhHoly

It's so sad, I remember as a young lesbian in London looking forward to getting it each week. I never click.

God yes everarddigby I did too. I am so disappointed by most of the organisations I held dear in those days
