Denver Post editor explains deletion of ‘socialist’ from Arapahoe shooter profile
December 14, 2013
Ace over at Ace of Spades HQ alerts us to an interesting development from the Denver Post. As Twitchy noted, the newspaper quietly edited its profile of Arapahoe school shooter Karl Pierson, changing a student’s description of Pierson as “a very opinionated Socialist” to simply “very opinionated.”
Lee Ann Colacioppo, senior news editor at the Denver Post, on Saturday explained why the paper changed its story.
