Richard L. Connor Recants his Apology

I have to mention this (a few days late). Portland Press Herald editor and publisher, Richard L. Connor, has written another article about his apology for the Ramadan coverage on September 11th.

Check out: “Remembering E.B. White’s sage advice.”

Key quote:

I meant to apologize for what we did not print — front-page coverage of 9/11 on the anniversary of a day that stirs deep and unhealed wounds. I was in no way apologizing for what we did print in a deservedly prominent position — a striking photo of our local Muslim community in prayer.

This is good, but why did it take a week to recant the apology, Connor?
