Doug Wilson on slavery
What are Doug Wilson's views on slavery? Fast forward to 3:10 for the answer to this question.
In this video, Doug Wilson says "good riddance" to slavery. He criticized the "debt slavery" many find themselves in today. The video was posted on June 24, 2011 - more than nine months before Mike Leonard's smear piece in the Herald-Times. Furthermore, Wilson says in the very pamphlet that Leonard used as the basis for his hit piece that "none need lament the passing of slavery."
Wilson was coming to Bloomington - Leonard's back yard - to speak at Indiana University. Leonard could have contacted Wilson for clarification on his views, regarding something Wilson wrote 16 years ago. That is standard journalistic practice. The fact that Leonard did not contact Wilson for his front page story proves Leonard has absolutely no interest in the truth. Leonard's only interest was in smearing Wilson.
This is a serious ethical breach and the Herald-Times needs to apologize.
