Evenews24. Can it get any worse?

So, Goon titan dead last night, right?

Cardking convo's one of the "reporters". The resulting story is this: http://www.evenews24.com/2011/01/01/it-empire-strikes-back-goon-titan-dead/

Or, in summary:

"IT Alliance managed to score first victory in their fight for Fountain. IT Alliance has been repairing previously RF jumpbridge towers in Z30S-A. As IT caps are leaving, GOON titan warps in but doesn´t fire a DD as all carriers he targets enter pos shield. Than he warps off to planet 4 direction. IT rapier warps behind him to planet 4 @100 km and voila, titan there.
Rapier bumps the titan and in few seconds dictor lands and bubbles him. All IT capitals/supers get to him and titan dies in 10 minutes. GOONS try to save him, cyno in their whole capital/supercapital fleet but IT caps are already off the field."

Wow. I couldn't have written any worse than that if I tried. Goons cyno in caps? He warped in, instead of cynoing in with Falcon? Oh, and the story has been back paged and side columned, because its obviously not that big of a deal right?

Bullshit.

If an IT titan had gone down like that you can be damn sure it would have a giant banner on the front page. As it was when I logged in they still had the "IT Alliance internal corp drama" shit from weeks ago. No wonder I get NC guys trying to copy and paste articles from this Fox News Wannabee in local as if its gospel. I know IT isn't perfect (as any entity in EVE isn't perfect) but isn't it sad when the most reliable (insert grain of salt here) source of info is Kugu's?

Anyways

Here... I'll give you the chat logs from Card's convo. Red5x5 is the "reporter"

Yeah man, I'm in the NC, but the Evenews24 people are fricking trolls.

I agree they are 100% biased granted I expect that but spitting into the wind has more effectiveness than trying to correct ;P
