Reader: Brett Reese can't really think his Martin Luther King Jr. hate is journalism, can he?
A recent Melanie Asmar post spotlighted Greeley school board member Brett Reese's fondness for a letter claiming Martin Luther King Jr. was a sexual degenerate, a Communist and a modern-day "plastic god" prompted laughter from one reader.
Of course, there's nothing funny about such hate speech, as our commenter makes clear.
I laughed out loud when I heard Reese justify his repeated parrotting of an ignorant listener's letter as based on Reese's belief in "journalism". Please, please Mr. Reese, read aloud the journal of Ted Kaczynski, or better yet, the journal of Travis Bickle. One journal is as good as another, and those are certainly worthy of airtime.
