WFMY scrubs press relase; still gives cover to hate group

GREENSBORO, NC -- Yesterday, WFMY posted what appeared to be a press release from a local sheriff under the byline of one of their reporters. The press release failed to report, and therefore, so did WFMY, that the "border training" the release announced the sheriff was attending is hosted by a group identified by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group. I wrote about it.

WFMY subsequently scrubbed the press release "article" without comment and replaced it with another story (at the same URL) that also fails to explain just who is conducting this "training," describing Federation for American Immigration Reform as merely as a "non-profit group."

Here is the now-vanished press release that originally appeared on WFMY's site under the byline of one of their staffers.
