THERE: There it was on the internet. Amazon was even offering it for sale. A tee-shirt inscribed “Rope. Tree. Journalist. Some assembly required.” What a cute idea…let’s lynch reporters, columnists or editors we disagree with! Dan Shelley, the Executive Director of the Radio Television Digital News Association wasn’t amused. So he went right to the sources, including Amazon and asked, is this an idea you endorse? The shirts were pulled from the digital shelves, but Dan warns, right-wing agitation against a free press isn’t over.
