‘If this job works out, his next gig will be getting blacks to join the KKK,’ (The headline in an article, dated July 25, 2014, Deputy Opinion Editor Matt Zencey about PA GOP’s new African-American Inclusion Director Ryan Sanders)
HARRISBURG – Today, Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason sent a letter to Pennsylvania Media Group Director of Content Mike Feely regarding the offensive column of Deputy Opinion Editor Matt Zencey. “In an article, dated July 25, 2014, Deputy Opinion Editor Matt Zencey noted the announcement of the PA GOP’s new African-American Inclusion Director Ryan Sanders with the headline, ‘If this job works out, his next gig will be getting blacks to join the KKK,’” the letter states.
“To create an intentionally and maliciously false and callous link to a racist, domestic terrorist organization is libel and defamation per se and demands an immediate private and public apology to Ryan Sanders, African-Americans, the PA GOP and the tens of thousands of registered Republicans who counted on The Patriot to be better news organization than their actions show. Quite frankly, Mr. Zencey should apologize to all Americans, as his defamatory comments seek to racially polarize this nation.” The full content of the letter, which was also sent to Pennsylvania Media Group publisher Lee Carson and The Patriot-News Opinion Editor John Micek and Deputy Opinion Editor Matt Zencey, is available below.
