Oh look, another fake 'hate crime'

According to this (external - login to view), radio personalities Steve and Leeanna from Long Island's K98.3 decided it would be super neato if they completely fabricated a story about gay dads being the victims of bigotry. They publicized this birthday party invitation, which went completely viral:

It's a compelling story, isn't it? A 7 year old's birthday party invitation returned to the senders (two gay dads) with that note on it? The radio station posted that note on their Facebook page mid week this past week, and of course, readers went completely crazy over it, expressing their due outrage and offering their sympathy and support to the fathers. It spread like wildfire.




The problem with the story, though, is that Steve Harper and Leanna (last name unknown) made up the entire thing, right down to the actual invitation, which they apparently hand-crafted. And they wrote this apology note on the station's website (external - login to view)yesterday:

Sounds more like the closed minded Right to me, but, have it your way.

Hate how the liberals do this. If they don't get caught it makes people think conservatives (aka people with morals) are bigots and idiots. If they do get caught they can just play it off as satire/ comedy and come out completely clean.

We see the same thing on all the "daily shows". They are free to spew any bs they want, then play it off as satire when it turns negative.

Hope you are bright enough to understand irony.

Why does 'the Right' do these things:

Really you could have just asked why do people do these things. What's it like in your head, that you see the world this way? Sad.

They did do a nice job of creating the cards (art-wise). It's a shame they couldn't have done something positive with it rather than with negativity like they chose to do.

Well, they are not really a "news" outlet. Their tag line is "Music That Makes You Feel Good!"

It is stupid, but whenever I have to listen to radio stations like that you hear the hosts say all sorts of **** that is completely wrong. They don't exactly have much of a reputation to lose.
