Deciding What's News and What's Not

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports today on a KHOG-TV 40/29 story last night that State Senator Denny Altes (R-Fort Smith) sent an angry email wailing about how "we" are being out-populated by "black folks." Attacking Hispanic immigrants, Senator Altes said, "We are where we were with the black folks after the revolutionary war. We can’t send them back and the more we piss them off the worse it will be in the future."

Also, last night in Fayetteville, former United States Surgeon General Dr. Joycelyn Elders spoke at the 26th anniversary of Planned Parenthood in Washington County. Her views were not deemed worthy of any coverage or reporting by the television station or any daily newspaper in Northwest Arkansas.
