Columnist Quits Louisville Courier-Journal After Paper Refuses to Publish His Latest Piece
Posted: 2/18/2013 | By: Joseph Lord | wfpl.org
Conservative columnist John David Dyche will no longer write for The
Courier-Journal after the newspaper rejected a piece he'd written that
suggested reforms to the editorial page and that the paper disclose
political affiliations of editors and reporters.
Courier-Journal Editorial Director Pam Platt told Dyche that his most
recently submitted column would not be published. Platt explained that
piece didn't reflect what he was supposed to be writing—a conservative
take on the issues of the day, according to Dyche's transcript of a
voicemail left by Platt.
