Was it racist for Ben Domench to call Coretta Scott King a Communist, repeating the accusations of southern bigots who tried to smear Martin Luther King during the Montgomery bus boycotts? The washingtonpost.com's Jim Brady said Domenech's comments were "silly." I wonder if the African-American community of Washington DC will think it's silly?

Let's find out. The brilliant Mike Stark, threatened by O'Reilly for saying the dreaded word "Olbermann" on his radio show, is signing people up to help him get in contact with Washington DC radio shows and take it to the streets. The Post seems to think it works for the White House. Maybe they need to be reminded that it is their subscribers who draw in advertisers and pay the bills.

We'll be doing a lot on this along with Steve Gilliard, Taylor Marsh, FDL and others. Please go help Mike out at DailyKos and hit the "recommend" button. It is time that the Post got a reminder about who they work for.
