Press must not cower or bend to ap­a­thy

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Opinion -

Ap­a­thy abounds. Mostly, it abounds be­cause many ed­u­cated peo­ple with good jobs and in­comes, which sat­isfy their fam­ily needs, are con­tent to let the cul­tural, po­lit­i­cal and ra­cial wars sort them­selves out with­out their di­rect in­volve­ment.

The Ob­server should not be moan­ing about ap­a­thy. It should be force­fully chal­leng­ing one of the ugli­est times in Amer­i­can his­tory. Now is the time for the free press to be “free.” Do not cower.
