Would You Buy Real Estate from Gila Courier?

Gila Courier is one-man show. He uses several pseudonyms, but only one person writes the blog posts. Today (July 23, 2010) he decided to push his agenda Andrew Breitbart style, you know, without actual facts. He made shit up again!

Listening to Jon Justice this morning I heard him read an email from a listener relaying a story about the Elton John concert.

During the concert, Sir Elton didn’t mince words about those demanding that he boycott Arizona and cancel his concert as a protest of SB 1070.  We won’t repeat his exact words but he made it clear that he wouldn’t have missed playing Tucson for the world and curtly told the Boycott Arizona mafia that he did not agree with them.  According to the Justice listener, John’s comments were well received by the audience who gave him a roaring applause.

I thought, wow, this is kind of newsworthy so I went to the Arizona Daily Star to check out the concert review.

Emphasis mine.

Here's the rub. Elton John didn't call out the folks calling for the boycott. He swore about the musicians who would diss Arizona. One comment mentioned Elton's words:

16 hours ago
Elton also asked the crowd what was wrong with those who refused to play in Arizon; to which he answered:

"They are a bunch of F+(*wads"

Great show by a legend!

Couldn't be clearer. The Gila Courier lied again. Here's my question, if you knew someone faked statistics, made up quotes, even published materials that didn't belong to him but could possibly ruin someone's reputation using that material (sound familiar?), would you close on a real estate deal with that person?
