No surprise that this would happen in kentucky, a conservative christian state.

I disagree. If someone doesn't want blacks in their establishment, they should be able to discriminate if they want.

The only beef i have is that it should be posted very clearly on the outside saying "no blacks allowed" so as to prevent any situations. It should be big and in bold lettering. If you're gonna be a racist, do it blatantly. It's the only type of racism i can respect. It's the surreptitious stuff that i can't deal with.

I'm pretty sure you can chalk up the Trayvon case as a loss.

Joseph Farah, of World Net Daily, has been involved in news reporting for many, many years, and has taught journalism as well. His credentials are without question, and his standards the highest.

The state of the "mainstream" media is as low as it has ever been. The recent malpractice in media that has taken place in the Trayvon Martin case, exemplifies the problem.

This week, an NBC producer has been fired, and at Media Matters (funded by George Soros), senior analyst M. J. Rosenberg, after humiliating the organization (mistakenly accusing the Drudge Report for racism in the Martin case), is leaving. Keith Olbermann has been fired from Current TV, as well.

NBC was caught in an edit of a tape, which was intended to pronounce Zimmerman guilty without a trial.
Brian Stelter of The New York Times credits NewsBusters.org for being the first to catch NBC's edit.

Yesterday, a Reuters story credited both Breitbart.com and NewsBusters for bringing the problem to the attention of NBC executives.

It is likely that, if not for conservative new media, the misleading edit, which inflamed racial tensions in the Martin case, and which was repeated by Stetler's own New York Times, would have gone unnoticed and uncorrected.

If you can find something at World Net Daily that isn't factual, or that misrepresents the facts, let's hear it.

As for the Washington Times (I believe that is what you meant), can you explain why that publication is not credible?
