Ensuciamos. We fucked up.

mea culpaCORRECTION to earlier post:

It appears that our source on the statistic that 13 out of 57 people tested for HIV yesterday must have misheard: according to a staff member at the Gay Health Advocacy Project, Bronx AIDS Services (who provided the HIV antibody testing) clarified that only 29 people were tested–none positive.

For future reference: GHAP offers free and confidential HIV testing to everyone–gay, straight, staff and students–during walk-in hours, Monday through Thursday from 4:00-7:00 PM, or by appointment (854-6655).  Results are available the day following the test.

    @wondering whats with the spanish… and whos translating?

    1. I hope says:

      @I hope you’re kidding and deep down inside know that it’s actually Latin.

      Either that or I’m the typical Columbia student who takes everything seriously.

      1. I think says:

        @I think #1 was talking about the “ensuciamos”…

    2. The ad campaign says:

      @The ad campaign around the city uses both “Conoce” and “Know” — it’s actually pretty well designed. And then this headline is a takeoff on the last headline, which used “Conoce” and “Know” again.

    @btw it should be: la embarramos

  • Another says:

    @Another major correction, Bwog? It looks like it might be time to start properly sourcing your stories.

    1. I disagree, says:

      @I disagree, This was the responsible thing to do, a quick correction if anything shows they do care about sources.

      1. right but says:

        @right but the more responsible thing to do would be not to base initial posts merely on what is overheard. Sourcing shocking — or any — information like that to a person or organization is important. It’s really lazy “reporting” otherwise.

        1. yeah but says:

          @yeah but it was sourced to Shade Ogunleye, right?

        2. Very true says:

          @Very true and you’re expecting what, exactly, from a gossip blog?

  • well, says:

    @well, it worked. stupid but it got me to schedule myself an HIV test.

  • Talk about says:

    @Talk about shity journalism! Shame on you, Bwog!
