“I contacted the PR firm listed in this article, they claim the article is ‘ficticious’ and have no involvement in the alleged study.”

Well, did anyone ask how the cockroach felt?
The Florida reporter who wrote on his Facebook page that “the level of hatred, unfounded fear and misinformed people [who showed up at Chick-fil-A on "Appreciation Day"] was astoundingly sad” has resigned from his paper, I’ve confirmed. — More.

The comments made by reporter Mark Krzos on his personal Facebook page were completely inappropriate. They were done without the knowledge of The News-Press and violate our policies. When we became aware of the comments, we asked the reporter to remove them. We consider this a very serious matter and hurts our credibility and we will take strong and appropriate action. — More.
Jim Romenesko: People who are new to this site continue to be confused by this post. They think I was the reporter who visited Chick-fil-A and “never felt so alien in my own country.”It was News-Press reporter Mark Krzos who wrote it; I merely excerpted it.

Well, so much for fair and balanced. What are the odds his story ties the customers to the tea party?
