USA/Oct 30, (THAINDIAN NEWS) In a rather shocking display of biased journalism, the Gawker website has published a story that literally washes the dirty linen of Delaware Republican senate candidate, Christine O’Donnell in public. Though the politician has come under heavy criticism from the media for her views and claims about sexuality, this is for the first time that the attack has been this direct and blatant.

The website published a story by a man in his late 20s who claims that she had spent a night with Christine O’Donnell three years ago during Halloween. Though there is very little evidence to indicate the actual truth behind the story, it is sure to meet its objective of defaming the senate candidate. In the story, the man from Philadelphia claims that Christine O’Donnell turned up at his residence after a night of drinking at a bar and the two had a one night stand. He has also spoken about Christine O’Donnell’s attitude in bed and said that she claimed to be a virgin. Hiding behind the veil of anonymity, the man also said that Christine O’Donnell appeared to be a woman in her early 30s and he was unaware of the fact that there was almost a 14 year difference between him and her.

Several bloggers have shown disapproval of the way the story has been published by Gawker. Though some of the bloggers have earlier been critics of the Delaware Senate candidate, this story has been criticized for its lack of taste. One blogger claims that though the story manages to grab eyeballs, it fails to expose the real truth behind Christine O’Donnell’s chastity claims.
