    See direct quote from cover story in this weeks issue:

    "Young black journalists were among the first to demand that Imus be ousted. Thursday evening, one day after Imus's comments, Jemele Hill, an ESPN reporter, posted the Media Matters link on the National Association of Black Journalists' e-mail list. Greg Lee, a Boston Globe reporter, spotted it right away. "I couldn't believe Imus would pick on people he had no right to pick on," he says. Lee forwarded the story to other online forums."

    Everyone has a problem with my spelling -- why not a lead columnist for a major web site?
  5. In this context, Boom, people find your emphasis on her spelling to be a lot of passive-aggressive horseshit. That's why.

    You're lecturing about passive/aggressive horseshit? There's one for the books!
