Hong Kong Lesbian pop star tells UN to remove China from rights council

Once again fridge's editor prints something out of Gay Star News but fails to highlight one of the really key issues that arose from it - the fact that "China’s representative to the UNHRC tried twice to interrupt Ho during her speech."

Why leave that out? Why leave it to members here to click on "click here" to find that out. It illustrates what little interest the so-called editor here has in conveying the real depth of the news. fridae is now interested only on repeating headlines and first paragraphs. No one on the staff can be bothered actually reading and then highlighting the main points. Is there in fact a staff here?
