This is not to say that the reporting of AIDS by specialist correspondents was always 'liberal'. Their close proximity to medical sources reinforced the view of AIDS as a gay disease before 1985. Naylor (1985) has pointed out that the treatment of AIDS as a gay disease at this time was a consequence of reliance on the medical profession which first misidentified AIDS as a gay disease and sought explanations for the aetiology of the disease in the lifestyles and behaviour of homosexual men.
