One of the top editors at the Tennessean is apologizing. One of his reporters is outraged. And a whole host of questions still need answers as to how a vile anti-Muslim ad appeared in the newspaper.
Addressed to “Dear Citizen of Nashville,” the eight-paragraph ad spanned the full length of the newspaper page, and discussed Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Democratic Party and Sept. 11. It claimed Trump’s presidency was part of a prophecy, warned of “another civil war,” and said that “Islam is going to detonate a nuclear device” in Nashville.
