Advertisement suggests Rumsfeld be killed

by on April 14th, 2004

The Gabber carried an advertisement from the St. Petersburg Democratic Club, a small group of local Democrats, suggesting Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld be killed.

By noon it was on the Drudge Report. “Campaign Rage: Florida Democrats Place Newspaper Ad Calling For Rumsfeld Hit,” the Drudge Web site screamed in what newspaper editors call “Second Coming type.”

By 1:20 p.m., The Gabber had 120 calls from reporters, “everybody from CNN to The New York Times,” Publisher Ken Reichart said ruefully.
