Downside of Local Journalism

Editor of small-town Alabama daily (The Democrat-Reporter of Linden, Alabama) calls for “the Ku Klux Klan to night ride again” against “Democrats in the Republican Party and Democrats … plotting to raise taxes in Alabama.”

“If we could get the Klan to go up there and clean out D.C., we’d all been better off,” wrote Goodloe Sutton.

Asked what he meant by ‘clean out’, Sutton said he meant lynching.
