Sons of Confederate Veterans Condemn Bias, Sloppy and Slanderous 'Journalism' from Indianapolis Fox 59

| From

ELM SPRINGS, Tenn. - Apr. 13 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- "An outrageous lie" was the response of Chris Sullivan, Commander-in-Chief of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, to a recent report by Fox Channel 59 portraying the SCV as "racist" and "supremist" (sic).

"The SCV was founded in 1896 to perpetuate the memory and honor of the Confederate soldier," Sullivan continued, "we proudly continue that mission, and that mission only, today. The SCV has repeatedly condemned bigotry of any kind by resolution and policy, and it would only take a modicum of journalistic effort to find that out."

Supporting links to relevant policies, resolutions and Constitution are below.

Channel 59 interviewed a supposed "expert," Vivian Deno, whose comments proved she actually knows nothing about the SCV or its mission and purpose, alleges Sullivan. The Sons of Confederate Veterans condemns Deno's allegedly slanderous remarks, Channel 59's sloppy "journalism," and the mayor of New Castle's vacillations.
