LGBTI activists force News Corp journo to quit NSW Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby, by Emily Ritchie.
News Corp journalist Shannon Molloy has been forced to resign from the board of the New South Wales Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby after being subjected to a social media campaign protesting his participation based on who employed him.
Jill Stark, an SBS columnist who reports on LGBTI issues, said Molloy had been pressured to quit by third-party activists who complained that his employment with News Corp presented a conflict of interest with the lobby.
“The Lobby and Shannon were inundated with emails, Facebook and Twitter messages saying that having a News Corp staffer on the board was a conflict,” Ms Stark tweeted today. …
Molloy is a gay man and has previously written stories about his experiences with homophobic bullying.
PC is more totalitarian and tribal than ever.
