Spotted this piece in the NY SLimes on the front page yesterday. Front page above the fold, no less. "Banished for Questioning the Gospel of Guns."The piece regards an article written by Dick Metcalf in December's Guns and Ammo magazine. More people wrote in to complain about it than the poohbahs at G&A expected in their wildest dreams. So Metcalf was fired and Jim Bequette, the editor who green-lighted his column, resigned immediately. Mr. Bequette wrote a G&A blog post responding to the Metcalf column. Dick Metcalf digs himself in deeper in this blogpost here.
""I've been vanished, disappeared," Mr. Metcalf, 67, said in an interview last month"
Question I have is: Why now? They didn't give a crap about this guy back in November, suddenly January 5th this is a front-page-above-the-fold issue?
