Poor Nikon. This story makes me wince.
*sigh* I hope Nikon is okay, this seems another article that hurts the poor 'coon. Nikon is such a sweety too. Why are the negatives focused on so heavily in the media?
Don't feel bad for me. I just went out and told the truth, and that's what's in the article. So please no pity parties for the fur who got burned by the press. I'm not burned. Currently the only thing I'm getting singed over is all the furs screaming at me cause I talked to the media.

Hey, you did a fair job there. You were sincere and that's what counts. You're not a designated laison for the fandom or anything, you're just a fur, and ya told the truth. :)

Pitch Weekly attended last month's 'Howl, Growl and Purr' - A Missouri furry minicon, and thoughtfully wrote an Article On it! I've read it. It's honest, and unflattering.
I actually thought that the article was pretty even-handed, though admittedly it didn't go out of its way to heap praise on the fandom. The whole thing read like a character contrast story, exploring how two people (Halex and Nikkon) attempted to reach out socially through the Furry fandom, and contrasting their (apparent) success and lack thereof. The Furry material was just an interesting backdrop for the character study.
Two things that make me respect this article are:
I'll take articles like this over the usual media circus any day.
I definetely agree with Deuce here. This was a very even-handed article. There were some slips by the author that slightly annoyed me, (particularly comments saying that all furries were introverted geeks picked-on as children, and that the lion picture was the very best in furry artwork) but a bit of slant is expected from any journalism these days. This was at least infinetely better than the Vanity Faire thing.
