The ‘Kenosha News’ Loses Its Only Full-Time Black Journalist
Editor Daniel J. Thompson objected to a headline in his own paper. It changed only after he quit.
The Kenosha News, a daily local newspaper with a print circulation of about 20,000, published an article on August 23 covering a rally for Jacob Blake, who had been shot seven times by a Kenosha police officer last week. The headline read: “Kenosha speaker: ‘If you kill one of us, it’s time for us to kill one of yours.”
