Spoofing the Despots

January 1966
Time;1/21/1966, Vol. 87 Issue 3, p59
The article reports on the work of James Jackson Kilpatrick as a journalist in Richmond, Virginia. According to Kilpatrick, the fiercely individualistic editor of the Richmond News Leader, part of a newspaper's job is to do its community a very real and special service by poking fun and spoofing the hell out of despots on the bench. It also notes that the state was emerging from peckerwood provincialism and ingrown morality, according to Kilpatrick in his News Leader editorial.
