After SFGN reported Saturday that the Washington Post and Toronto Sun may have relied on a fake news story about Britney Spears being named the gay community’s greatest Gay icon, the author of the story has responded to SFGN repeated attempts to reach him.

Waddell is the “source” of the Palazzo posting picked up by the mainstream media.
