Re: “If your grandfather fought Nazis like mine did, now is the time to speak up

Like any other provider of consumer commodities, the media is responding to the appetites of the marketplace. If the Charlottesville story flopped due to lack of demand, then the coverage would have been minimal, and the violence and mayhem could have possibly been avoided. We are getting the media products that sell, and the public shares the blame for buying it.

These Neo Nazi / supremacist / alt righties gatherings are essentially a flash mob with bad haircuts and matching polos - they're in it purely for the attention and the social scene. They are not the late night cross burning, bloodied axe handle variety of the pre - mass media era. And without cameras to record the spectacle, they lose interest and go home. And without sufficient web clicks and ratings scores, there are no cameras. If there is a media agenda at work here, it is to make more money than your competitors.

And no mention of Muskie, whose Douchegate controversy was launched from these very pages to the stage at Pecha Kucha? https://www.charlestoncitypaper.com/Eat/ar…

Re: “Publisher of James Dobson, the anti-gay founder of Focus on the Family, releasing Tim Scott and Trey Gowdy's book

At least the SPLC actually works for a living. Their record of taking down hate groups and standing up for the underrepresented speaks for itself. The FRC is just another parasitic, gleefully divisive, purely partisan Washington lobbying group. Their only excuse to exist is to hustle whitebread sharia law to the tabloid addled culture war dupes.

Re: “The Agenda: More corruption indictments coming?; CARTA getting money for shelters, buses; I-526 still alive

"Why does no one on the face of the earth remember that the tax-payers APPROVED the extension and funds way-back?"

Probably because it didn't happen. Perhaps you are referring to the 2004 sales tax hike - here is the actual ordinance: http://www.charlestoncounty.org/Ordinances… .
