    Leftist Newspaper Magnate Uses the "N" Word

    Double standards

    by Rachel Alexander

    A week ago, the most powerful owner/publisher/editor of left wing newsweeklies in the country, Michael Lacey, made a racist remark, "my n****" at an awards dinner in Phoenix on the anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assassination. The mainstream media ignored it.

    Contrast this with talk show host Don Imus's racist remarks. Imus was admonished by every major network for days, until he was eventually fired.

    The difference is that Lacey champions far left causes, regularly attacking conservative politicians in his newspapers. Many of the things written about them - such as (ironically) labeling Sheriff Joe Arpaio a racist - aren't true. Lacey's newspapers are filled with racist remarks, like referring to white rap artists as "wiggers." But the so-called mainstream media won't call out Lacey on racism and smears, because they're more concerned with taking down conservative politicians using any means possible, however unethical.

    The blogosphere hasn't remained silent however. A campaign has been started by political blogs in Arizona to force Lacey to resign. A fellow newsweekly publisher, Paul Curci of the Philadelphia City Paper, wrote a letter to the editor of the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies expressing his disgust. If the bloggers are able to force Lacey to step down, it will be an indication that the the mainstream media has finally lost its choke hold over the news.
