"Working The Refs"

Two sides can play this game, it appears. Chris Bowers explains:

Yesterday, you sent emails to Nedra Pickler of the AP asking her to point out Donahue’s history of racially intolerant statements. Not only did she comply, in her new story, she included the exact same Donahue quote you asked her to include. You pressure works.

Impressive, in my view. You can click here to send an email of your own to news organizations complaining about their irresponsible coverage of this matter. Based on the AP’s response to complaints, I would advise people to do it. Indeed, I might also note that Swampland is suddenly full of posts I find much more agreeable than the ones they were doing early on.
