Money quote:

The unusually blatant sycophancy of the question naturally drew attention to the questioner, and in the weeks since a curious story has emerged. Jeff Gannon, the reporter for the news service called Talon News, turns out to be “Jeff Gannon,” a “reporter” for a “news service” called “Talon News.” His real name is James Guckert. He is not a reporter but a propagandist and (even though his “news reports” have often featured appeals to anti-gay bigotry) apparently a part-time male escort, whose registered Internet domains include Talon News is not a news service but a front for, a Texas Republican Web site.
