Another apology

The Tallahassee Democrat is running a series, The Ride to Equality, about the 1956 bus boycott there.

With the series, editor Robert Gabordi (until recently editor of the Asheville Citizen Times), has written an apology for the paper's stance on segregation: Fifty Years in Coming:
It is inconceivable that a newspaper, an institution that exists freely only because of the Bill of Rights, could be so wrong on civil rights. But we were.
It's just too bad that the apology isn't coming from the editor at the time, whose daily columns were constantly anti-black, according to an article in Editor & Publisher.

Regret the Error posts links to the apology and to the previous one from the Lexington Herald- Leader.
