Leonard Pitts and Herald editor testify at trial of racist
Miami Herald columnist Leonard Pitts Jr. and Dave Wilson, the Herald's senior editor for administration, testified today in the Virginia trial of a neo-Nazi leader charged with making online threats.
The trial, so far, isn't getting much coverage outside of Roanoke where it's being held.
Pitts told the federal jury today, "I feel like I have been violated." Pitts was describing his reaction after he received an e-mail in 2007 from avowed racist William A. White.
