Journal Register Company: Domonic Brown an Idiot

Be sure to check out Bucks Local News' online story today that calls Domonic Brown an idiot. Matthew Fleishman, the author of the article titled, "Phillies hot stove is heating up", included a note to the editor reading, "(*NFP. DOMONIC IS SPELLED RIGHT. HE'S JUST AN IDIOT*)". NFP means not for publication.

A screen capture of the publishing error is below. Link here, until a site editor corrects the oversight.

Bucks Local News is a network of publications owned by The Journal Register Company. Their local papers serve the Philadelphia metropolitan area. Fleishman is the editor for Yardley News, which is a paper under The Journal Register Company's banner. Fleishman's blog, On the Edge, found here, contains a version of the article without the remark not intended for publication. No word yet on if the incorrect version made it to print for the Yardley News.

In an interview with Brown back in July, I asked him about confusion over the spelling of his first name. Check that out by clicking here.

**UPDATE...Fleishman has updated the main article and posted the following statement...
"EDITOR'S NOTE: As the author of this article, I sincerely apologize if I offended Domonic Brown. The NFP (Not For Print) note was obviously not meant for publication, but was inserted so the editor would not change the spelling of his name. Nevertheless, it was a bad joke made worse by the poor judgment of placing the note in the run of the story. The only idiot in this case is me."**
