I recently fired off this letter to Kathryn Dunn of The Claremont Courier. I don't think she'll print it, but people ought to know all about her bias.
Hi Ms. Kathryn Dunn, editor of The Claremont Courier,Update: 03/06/2011 1:46 PM. In the comment section, Dunn insists that she is not a public figure so I had no right to post the photo above without her consent. She's wrong.
I wanted to salute you for having the courage to publish a fact-challenged ad in your pages. It took really good editorial judgment to publish it!
I guess you won't print letters from concerned people about a professor who supports terrorist organizations but you will print letters from a group that uses a piece of satire from a candidate and acts as if it is serious. Of course, in the first case, the letter from a parent of a student asked you for space to write the letter and in the second case, you received money for the full page ad. I'm sure that had nothing to do with your decision. I mean, gosh, you are a first rate editor of a humble small town newspaper, which, dontcha know, has standards -- if only.
I suspect that you knew well that the full page ad was false but you ran with it anyways, because, hey, it was paid for. By the time you came around to issuing a correction, the election would be over and that little ditty would have done its damage. Well done.
I'm sure that this has nothing to do with you sharing the ideological disposition of the people attacking Opanyi. Nah, that couldn't be it. This photo of you and Bill Clinton was and it's not like you are listed as a liberal on Facebook or anything. Oh wait? You are?
Oh, well, that explains it!
She's demanding that I remove the picture of her, even though her Facebook settings were open to the public. (We aren't friends in the public.) She threatens me with hearing from her "representatives." I'm not to be intimidated.
