The background for this diary is basically in the three diaries that I'll list below the fold; in brief the story is this:  I linked to a Leonard Pitts article, I got a post that I thought threatened Mr. Pitts and called the FBI, I posted this to the daily Kos and then recieved a call from the neo-nazi on my home telephone, and later some flyers about me were spread in my neighborhood.  More below the fold..

The background to all of this is at the end of this diary.  But what I am posting here is a link to the video that a local TV station put out:

This is actually a bit more than actually got on the air.  No, I won't mention the Virginia slumlord who is behind this; he is a megalomaniac who thrives on attention.

Anyway, it is nice to see the TV station standing up to these people.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
