Newspaper apologizes

Newspaper Apologizes to Mrs. Palin:

You'll never guess why.

Today I must apologize to Mrs. Palin personally and on behalf of the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner for the choice of words used on the bottom of Wednesday’s front page regarding her speaking engagement in Hong Kong this week to a group of global investors.

We used offensive language — “A broad in Asia” — above a small photograph of the former governor to direct readers inside the newspaper to a full story of her Hong Kong appearance.
Hm. Well, it's nice to see the apology, anyway. Civility and all that.
