SPLC article featured in communist newspaperSubmitted by bobbyw24 on Sat, 01/22/2011 - 13:46
A column written by Mark Potok, director of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) Intelligence Project, has found its way into an unlikely place — “People’s World,” the official online newspaper of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA).
But Potok told The Daily Caller in an e-mailed statement he did not have a personal role in his column titled “Coming to Terms With The Confederacy” appearing in the CPUSA mouthpiece.
“We occasionally write op-eds for a nonprofit organization called OtherWords, which aims at ‘amplifying progressive analysis in the national conversation’ by placing the op-eds in various publications,” Potok wrote. “I have no idea how the articles are placed, nor were we consulted about the process. As you will have noticed, the op-eds are offered free, likely to anyone who cares to copy them.”
