Editor "Emeritus" calls Junior Berger a Democrat

And we wonder why we have so many low information voters:

I had an acquaintance who lived in New York City at the time. He was a member of a group — I think it was something like New Yorkers For Hunt — who raised money in New York to try to defeat Helms. And there were big special interest groups and political action committees all across the nation sending money here. It will be the same this year.

Maybe the voters have already expressed their desire for such rules here in our Sixth District. In the runoff for our congressional seat, Democrat Phil Berger gladly accepted funds from all over. Republican Mark Walker took no PAC funds or special interest money. And although he had half the money Berger did, Walker won decisively.

Bolding mine. There have been some fairly asinine opinion columns so far this year, but this one takes the cake. Not one word about the millions already spent by AFP and other Republican groups attacking Kay Hagan since late last year, but plenty of innuendo about Democrats. Even when they're not Democrats. And you can bet if they do publish a correction, it will be buried on page 9.

And now it remains to be seen if they will put something in the dead tree version to let readers know of their mistake.
