On Confusing Prejudice with Journalism - Big Journalism Great article by Mark Skoda of the Memphis Tea Party. He is writing in response to Wendi Thomas, a local Memphis columnist who made trashy remarks about Republican candidate for House Charlotte Bergmann in one of her recent articles. Thank goodness I cancelled my subscription to the Commercial Appeal two years ago so I am no longer subjected to the nonsense Ms Thomas writes sometimes. It's sad because she had the potential to be a really great writer if she would stick to real journalism. I have to wonder what in the world got into her on this one.
