Sometimes a man’s comments so shock the conscience that the only moral option is to drop his column no matter how mega-mouthed a political icon he is.
Turns out, George Will will no longer be featured on the pages of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The paper dumped his bottom end last Wednesday mincing no words as to why in a posting to their readers:
“The change has been under consideration for several months, but a column published June 5, in which Mr. Will suggested that sexual assault victims on college campuses enjoy a privileged status, made the decision easier. The column was offensive and inaccurate; we apologize for publishing it. ”
Wow! See Marena Groll’s whole article, “Rape Deniers,” at the Onslow Times (Jun 28, 2014) at http://onslowtimes.com/rape-deniers/
