Falklands Islands Penguin News calls Argentine president Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner a “bitch”
OVER in the Falkland Islands the Penguin News has called Argentine president Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner a “bitch” on its website.
The Penguin News’ editor Lisa Watson later removed the word that had been used to save a photo of the politico.
“I receive threats and insults via our work email address and on Twitter. The threats I try not to take seriously, particularly as the individuals tend to sign their name and even offer ‘besos’ (kisses) after claiming they are coming to the Falklands and their first task will be to kill me.”

“Mainly I am referred to as a prostitute, liar, thief and pirate, other words I really wouldn’t like to mention.”
Oh, go on. Mention.
