GLAAD rips Fox news for attending its award show — after one of its staffers emailed Fox an invitation

The statement GLAAD's VP of Communications, Rich Ferraro, gave Equality Matters was:
If Kimberly [Guilfoyle] and Jamie [Colby] expect to attend future GLAAD events, they will first need to sit down with us to discuss Fox News' embarrassing, biased and misinformed coverage of LGBT issues. The invitation is open. Fox News's track record on LGBT issues is abysmal, and it makes no sense to me why any LGBT people or allies would want to be a part of that.
     Fox's coverage of gay issues has frequently been inexcusably biased and hostile, as Equality Matters and GLAAD itself commendably document, but neither have yet mentioned the fact that GLAAD Director of Creative Development Marc Honaker emailed a current Fox News staffer to urge the right-wing TV network to buy a table at the GLAAD's annual media awards event held in New York City March 16.
     We hope the missive below, published by TVNEWSER, is not genuine, but if it is, then then GLAAD's actions reek with duplicity.
