A local New York City newspaper is putting itself on the map in a big way thanks an op-ed by author James Lincoln Collier with the title "The [Expletive] in the White House."
In the headline, the WestView News of NYC's West Village used the racial slur to refer to President Barack Obama.
Underneath Collier's piece, which actually argued that "far right voters hate Obama because he is black," the paper ran another op-ed written by African-American columnist Alvin Hall called, "The Headline Offends Me."
The paper's editor, George Capsis, attempted to explain the use of the word.
"The editorial staff continues to object" to the use of the word, Capsis wrote, the New York Post reported. "In this article, however, Jim reminded me that The New York Times avoids using the word which convinced me that WestView should."
TVNL Comment: The problem is that ths rag sheet, which is free for those who need more toliet paper, is referred to as a 'newspaper.' This tiny operation found a way to get its 15 minutes of fame.
