Should We Advocate the Eradication of One of the Editors of The Seattle Times: Jim Vesely

From Sound Politics:

Fortunately, I had finished my lunch when I came across this Seattle Times headline, which says that I should be eradicated.

Eradicate those who have put us in the Middle East

In view of the hate crimes committed in Seattle during the last days, the violent and obscene attacks against bloggers like Jeff Goldstein, we have idiots like the editors of the Seattle Times publishing letters from people who eacho the words of the greatest mass murderers of the 20th century. And this comes, I am totally sure, from people who decry the loss of civility in public discourse.

Well, let's see what Jim Vesely thinks about his eradication.


The American Thinker chimes in:

Remember, Bill Keller of the New York Times has informed us that the press is ultimate authority on what is in the public interest, right? And when blogger Jim Miller of Sound Politics chastised Seattle Times Editor Jim Vesely for the headline (a day before the shooting), Vesely haughtily replied:

“No thanks, I’ll stick with our earlier decision and with the headline, the dictionaries agree with our use of the words.”

Go look up the word “clueless” in one of those dictionaries, and you’ll probably find a picture of the Seattle Times there now.
