White Supremacy and the Washington Times

The Southern Poverty Law Center reports that the Washington Times makes a habit of publishing white supremacist screeds, not terribly surprising. Many of these articles are written by Marion Kester Coombs, wife of managing editor Francis Booth Coombs. The Times does not acknowledge their relationship in Mrs. Coombs' bylines.

Mrs. Coombs and others who write for the Times are also regular contributors for racist publications such as Occidental Quarterly. President Bush was interviewed by Coombs and others in the January 12th edition of the Times. Maybe someone in the White House press corps can ask if their philosophy is in sync with Bush's. Then again, if they don't investigate the Gannon/Guckert story, they aren't going to delve into anything they ought to.

Thanks to Yellow Doggerel Democrat for the Washington Times heads up.
