The Low Road

I was surprised and disappointed when I saw the cover and read "Why Glenn Beck Hates Community Organizers" (by Danny Duncan Collum, September-October 2010). Though Beck's quotations appeared on each page of the featured article, he was not referenced once in the article itself; his face and quotations seemed to be used as marketing scare tactics to draw readers in and further polarize those who find themselves either in support of or afraid of community organizing. These are the same tactics used by right-wing conservatives; the leaders of Sojourners have historically chosen to take a "higher road."

Though I often find myself on the same page as this magazine's contributors, this was simply a below-the-belt act of poor journalism and poor taste.
