I spoke briefly with Greenville News executive editor John Pittman about the f-word appearing in his newspaper today. “I’m shocked and saddened by it,” he said. “I’m personally calling everyone who complained.” He said 18 people have called so far. (I talked to him at about 12:40 p.m. ET.) I asked him if the Gannett copy desk in Louisville was to blame, but he wouldn’t comment. “We’re the ones who published it. We’ll let other people speculate what happened and how.” Pittman said there’s an investigation to find out who’s responsible.
