Greenwich Time editing

Reader JS sends along this fascinating editing job by the Greewich Time reporting on the election of a new president for NOW:

***
INDIANAPOLIS  — The National Organization for Women has elected a 56-year-old Maryland woman as the group’s next president.
 
NOW said Terry O’Neill, who is white, defeated Latifa Lyles, a 33-year-old black woman from Washington, D.C., during the organization’s three-day national conference in Indianapolis.

I found original AP story: AP used “African-American”, but that’s a whole other issue.

JS wonders what the race of either candidate is relevant to a story about NOW. I dunno.

    Surely a biracial homosexual transgender would better understand NOW issues than mainstream, Establishment candidates

    A black woman named named “Latifa”?! I thought she might be Amish.
