Campaign to fire Michael Lacey from Phoenix New Times

We received an email asking us to participate in a campaign to remove Michael Lacey from ownership of the Phoenix New Times over his use of the "n" word at a journalists' awards dinner for - among others - an African-American journalist. Civil rights activists are outraged over the remark. We won't bother covering the entire story, since some of the other blogs have already done a good job, but we do want to point out the New Times has been remarkably quiet on the subject, only putting up a rather sanctimonious post about Lacey receiving the award, no mention of the racist remark.
