Apology and Retraction

On May 11, 2009, an article was published on Opednews.com written by a Don DeBar entitled "Gagging Free Speech Radio". The article stated that Stephen Brown, a local board member of radio station WBAI-FM, had used "often used the most barbaric and racist imagery and language" with regard to the removal of the former director of the station.

We became aware that the statements were neither supported nor substantiated. As such, we removed the article from the Opednews.com website. However, we understand that said article was published on other websites and remains on those websites.

Although we have no control over the content of other websites, Opednews.com here formally retracts the above-mentioned article and presents this apology to Mr. Brown and other offended WBAI individuals for its initial publication on this site. It is absolutely not Opednews.com policy to allow vendettas or personal attacks upon other progressive media or their personnel.
