Grant Denied Because Of “Unpatriotic” Comment

An arts group in Whitesburg, Kentucky has been turned down for a $300,000 grant to create an exhibition hall for film documentaries and old radio programs because county officials objected to a remark they said one of the group’s members made on his radio program. County officials called the remark – that “America has killed more innocent people than any other country in the world” “unpatriotic,” but the disk jockey says he doesn’t remember saying it.
