(Source) Note to readers: A paragraph in an earlier version of Pete Dougherty’s column that included a reference to Peterson’s punishment of his 4-year-old son being connected to America’s history of slavery was removed. It was poorly reasoned and insensitive. We apologize to all readers who were offended.
Well that’s a pretty fucked up thing for someone to say. Regardless of what was written what was the editor thinking? Or does this writer just have carte-blanche to write and publish what he wants? Seriously that is a legit source, not just some red-neck spouting off hot takes on his porch.
There is only one conclusion, and that is the editor fucking hates this writer. No two ways about it. How can you let that fly unless there is some need seeded hatred. Did Pete Dougherty bang this dudes wife? Did you cut you off and steal your spot in the parking lot? What’s the deal here.
Whatever it is Dougherty is going to be packing his shit in about 30 minutes and the editor is probably going to steal his stapler off his desk.
More to come….
