Heritage Foundation's Associate Director accuses me, GLAAD of character assassination

by Jeremy Hooper

GLAAD's Commentator Accountability Project, which I work on, consists of nothing more than the anti-gay commentators' own documented words. There is no virtually no editorializing; the project is simply a round up of things that these commentators have themselves put on the record. Every single quip is sourced to the text, audio, or video, often linking directly to their own web properties.

But according to the Heritage Foundation's Associate Director of Coalitions, I am both a "hate monger" and a "character assassin":

Interestingly enough, I have never used the word "hatemonger" to refer to someone on the other side. Not once in nine years. Just as with my work at #GLAADCAP, I focus all of my energy on the tangible words and actions of my opposition, not their character or individual motivations. Even my ardent opponents know and admit this about me.

But go ahead, Mr. Nichols—try to parlay our simple noting of a person's own words into some sort of unfair "attack." I'm more than confident in how that debate will play out with an increasingly receptive public.
