Success of a sort: VICE have taken down their HIV-denialist story. I blogged about that story here, and I protested (with others) to @Vice and @ViceUK. Our protests worked. The webpage for the story now has the following:

Quote:
"This article was mistakenly translated from another territory and has been removed."
What does that even mean? "Mistakenly translated from another territory"? I'll bet you the story was written in English first and foremost; see the writer's tweet beneath. If not, then he simply plagiarised, or what? Who knows? VICE aren't revealing a thing, except that they can do incomprehensible retraction messages along with HIV denialism. There doesn't seem to be any word from them about their retraction on either @Vice or @ViceUK. How very cryptic.
