"What Browning accomplished was raising some important questions, allowing people to respond, and then allowing the organization to respond. In the process, we saw GetEqual provide some much needed transparency and we saw Bilerico raising concerns that have been talked about, but not written about. While some may see it as typical circular firing squads, which are famous in LGBT organizations and politics, it seemed to me that it was a healthy conversation to start and in a place where it could be the most successful, a moderated... open blog."

-- Michael Triplett of the National Lesbian and Gay Journalist Association on Bilerico Project's recent series "Is GetEqual the New HRC?" (Part 1) (Part 2) (Part 3)

>>we saw Bilerico raising concerns that have been talked about, but not written about.

That is simply not true. Not to take anything away from what Bil has done but, Michael Petrelis and others were blogging about it earlier, and that is just as much "writing" as blogging on Bilerico.

It is important for a journalist to get the facts right. When in doubt, temper absolutist statements.
