Is the Lexington Herald Supporting Incivility?

The leader of the Kentucky Fairness Campaign was arrested for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest for disrupting the Kentucky Farm Bureau’s annual breakfast. This isn’t the first time the Fairness Campaign has protested the Farm Bureau—all because of Farm Bureau’s policy to uphold traditional marriage between one man and one woman and their opposition to transgender bathrooms in public schools. Interestingly, the Lexington Herald Leader is siding with the Fairness Campaign. They call Farm Bureau’s positions “depressing” and their issues of concern “non-existent threats.” Instead of upholding their right as a private organization to determine their own values and issues of priority, the Herald-Leader is ironically siding with a group that employs bully tactics and incivility—something contrary to free speech. Both are values that the news media depends upon.
