Xtra's Misleading A-jad Header

Gay rag Xtra headlines a story about an exchange between Iran's hirsute Mahdi man and CNN's hirsute Wolf thus: "Ahmadinejad calls 'no homo' on Blitzer".

Here's the back-and-forth that occasioned that header:
CNN's Wolf Blitzer got a chance to interview Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad this weekend and used the opportunity to grill him about statements he made in 2007 that there are no homosexuals in Iran.
Ahmadinejad responded that he wouldn't know any homosexuals in Iran since "in Iran, homosexuality is looked down upon as an ugly deed," but he then suggested that "perhaps there are those who engage in such activities and you may be in contact with them and more aware of them."...
Sounds to me like Xtra got is bass-ackwards, and that A-jad is calling homo on Wolf, implying that, since he hangs around with Anderson Cooper, he, too, is more than a little light in the loafers.
