One of these reporters is not like the other

By Libby

How interesting.
Tallahassee Democrat senior writer Stephen Price on Friday was singled out and asked to leave a media area at the Panama City rally of presidential candidate Sen. John McCain. ...

Tallahassee Democrat Executive Editor Bob Gabordi said the incident was unwarranted.

"We're deeply concerned and disturbed that our reporter — of all of those in that area — was asked to move," Gabordi said. "My understanding is that Stephen was the only reporter approached and asked to leave the area, and the only reporter in that area who is black. Another reporter who stood up for Stephen was then asked to leave."
A McCain spokesman said Price was in the area reserved for national gaggle reporters but that doesn't explain why all the locals were removed and only Price was singled out. [h/t R. Clayton McKee]
