Re: Ron Swatek letter (Shame on AP for ‘racism’ story), Tuesday’s MDJ

Mr. Ron Swatek hit it right on the head regarding your selection of AP stories to publish. I have noticed many times in the past that most of them are not news, but thinly disguised editorials. I usually just glance at the headline and skip over them along with the column by Bill Press, who is probably the most biased and ignorant writer that you publish.

I don’t know if you have “sold your soul,” but I sometimes wonder if anyone at the paper reads these AP stories before printing them. The kindest way I can think about it is that you have someone just out of journalism school who merely sticks the articles in as “filler.” I will continue my subscription because I like to keep up with things, but these AP articles are very aggravating.

@ Amen - Yeah, God forbid you or Morrison even consider a different point of view. Here's your homework assignment: look up the meaning of epistemic closure. Your picture might be next to it.
Amen, amen

This paper is more or less built around AP "news" which is a lot of opinion presented as fact. Its unfortunate. And then you have people like Press and Foley with their really twisted rants. I quit the AJC and will not go back, hope this paper doesn't become another mouthpiece for the democrats.
