So Out Magazine is declaring who is out, whether the person is out or not?
That is as bad as Gawker.

why would i or anyone want to know if some stranger is gay? and why would they want strangers to know they are gay?
ya! do it on tv and you are a drama queen! who gives a rats?
and no, molestation is not the same as being gay.
For straight people, sexuality isn’t something that needs to be proclaimed or distinguished, it simply is a part of their daily lives. For example, straight people generally never worry about losing their jobs or families because of who they love, or ever consider, let alone are asked, when they “chose” to be straight. To sexual minorities, however, it is often a daily fight, and an internal conflict that is years if not decades long.
Thousands of kids today still try to kill themselves, and often tragically succeed, out of despair that they will never find love and acceptance from their families or communities. Millions of otherwise well-adjusted adults still hide their sexuality for fear they will lose their livelihood or place in the community. Indeed, it is still legal in many states to fire someone simply because of his or her sexual orientation, nothing more.
Gawker’s J.K. Trotter has been trying for months now to out Shep, with today’s piece making the fourth time he’s written about Shep’s sexual orientation in just the past seven months. He’s mostly been skewered in the media for his persistence in chasing a story that isn’t really a story, but even I was willing to admit that if Shep’s sexual orientation was having a direct impact on his standing at his place of work, then it would be, in fact, newsworthy.
The problem, of course, is that today’s report was coming from Trotter, who has exhibited a near-stalker-like obsession with Shep to the point where, last month, he had to be thrown out of a National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association gala he had attended to tail and confront Shep publicly about his sexuality.
Newsteam- Good morning from Los Angeles.
I came to fox news 18 years ago because they agreed to hire me. I’ve stayed with fox news because of my relationship with Roger Ailes. He’s my boss, my friend and my steadfast supporter both professionally and personally.
Things you might read today are horse#. As phony as 24-hour breaking news on The Plane Channel.
Big love. See yall Monday… Unless breaking news changes everything.

a reply to: snarky412 Then why was he promoted to managing editor? I googled this and there are holes in Gawkers reporting. There is an article about it on political,take that for what it is worth. Not really sticking up for Fox, we all no they lean right as well as every other news outlet leans left. Just saying it seems to me that they are all out for blood against one another, so they're going do whatever it takes.
