Flashback: Seattle P-I's David McCumber Notoriously Announced He Was "The Decider" Who Decided What Was News and What Was Not News

This arose, I believe, in the context of the Seattle P-I refusing to run a picture of men sought for questioning by the FBI, because, of course, they were Muslim, and the Seattle P-I decided that that meant they should not be shown in a newspaper.

And in reaction to that, this lipstick-wearing whore-rouged bitch-boy wrote the following:

"I understand that people have a hard time with the concept that we get to decide what is news and what isn't, and what is fair and what isn't."

How's the Deciding business going, David?

Seems as though we've Decided to fire you from your self-appointed role as news censor. Seems like, ultimately, you don't really get to Decide what is news and what is fair after all.

Seems that maybe your customers -- or more accurately, your non-customers-- get to do some Decidin' of their own.


Thanks to Senator, Adviser E. Buzz Miller for reminding us of this.
