Black men in West Virginia beware….The Dominion Post published an item on Saturday seeking a suspect, described only as a “black man” for “some suspicious activity.” Um, Morgantown, WV, where the newspaper is published is 89.7% white and 4.1% black.
The online version of the post was later updated with a description of the actual crime the ‘black man’ was wanted for — stolen credit cards, along with three photographs of the man in questions.
Due to a copy editor’s error, an item was published in The Dominion Post on Saturday without a full description of a suspect sought by the Monongalia County Sheriff’s Department in connection with stolen credit cards. The corrected item with the full description ran in the Sunday edition of The Dominion Post and was published on TheDPost.com late Saturday with three photographs. Source: Dominion Post
