Text:The GLBT community is fairly evenly split on whether ex-Queer Nation presenter Jonathan Marshall should have been sacked in the fallout from his involvement in paparazzi chases of TV celebrity Mike Hosking, according to a poll. However, condemnation of his camera and car chase tactics is clear, his credibility has been severely undermined and the incident is felt to have reflected badly on the GLBT community. In the poll, accessed voluntarily by just over 200 people, only a slightly larger number of respondents (53%) felt that Marshall should not remain on-screen than felt he could remain (47%). 77% of respondents felt his paparazzi activities were unacceptable or ill-advised, and 74% indicated they thought his credibility as a QN presenter has been destroyed or lessened. Similarly, 70% of those taking part in the poll feel the incident has reflected badly on New Zealand's GLBT community.
