The Ithaca Journal's Silence (continued)

More than two weeks after the Ithaca (N.Y.) Journal let local wacko Sandy Wold engage in an anti-Semitic rant, the Gannett newspaper is finally gearing up to, maybe, say something in public about it. Woop-de-do.

A reader who has been in touch with Journal editors says some kind of “apology” (probably a non-apology apology of the kind Wold has posted on the Internet) will run this coming Saturday. That’s three whole weeks after this pinhead bigot spouted off.

The Journal should have long since retracted that column. Its failure to do so is not just irresponsible, but also inexplicable. Makes you wonder why, doesn’t it?
