Here we go again. The third hit piece on 50:50, by Nandini Archer this time. Tellingly, the piece lacks a line which was at the end of the previous 50.50 hit piece:
50.50 is an independent feminist media platform

The start of the piece:
50.50’s recent dispatch on this movement received hundreds of comments and messages on social media. We read them so you don’t have to.
Men’s rights activists (MRAs) met in London last month at one of the largest gatherings of anti-feminists in the world. 50.50’s dispatch from the conference aroused an angry backlash, as MRAs mobilised their supporters to try to discredit our report and drown out any positive response to it.
They left hundreds of comments under the article and on social media – which run from the misguided but sincere, through foolish and provocative to misleading, abusive, and hateful. They show what we’re up against, and reflect the abuse that women journalists so often face online.
The article then goes from bad to worse. I invite you to post comments. Thanks.
