Not only is the story about racism, how about the dig at the end? Local news can be so ugly.
- The company doesn’t really care about it’s image, but what “other website” did that “information” come from?
- Who wrote the copy for that news story?
Even if the news copy isn’t meant to have racist overtones, it sure reads like it. I’ve seen this a lot with stories in the local media. They’ll report a horrible thing, then end the story with a bit that sounds like support for the awful thing, making the whole package a nice little bit of ass cracker journalism.
Worse still, I believe CBS owns this affiliate.
UPDATE: Salt Lake Tribune story here. Same racist closing paragraph. Unbelievable.
