Editor Caught Altering Content

Editor Caught Altering Content

For nearly a decade, my syndicated opinion-editorial column has appeared every week on the editorial pages of The Bradford Era newspaper. The managing editor during that time retired in December 2012. She freely admitted that she disagreed with most of my positions. But she was fair. I recall her saying she had an obligation to present both sides to her readership.

In January 2013, the publisher of The Bradford Era begged Mark Ivancic out of retirement to be managing editor and to turn the paper around. At least that’s Ivancic’s version. He has brought a penchant for underhandedness, dishonesty, intimidation, contempt for opinion that doesn’t conform to his, and a blatant disregard for the community and its readership.

If I were given to fomenting racial discord, Ivancic has presented me with the perfect opportunity. In January, out of all the syndicated columnists that appear on the paper’s editorial pages, by Ivancic’s own admission, I was the only one he personally called.

That he wasn’t calling any of the other syndicated writers, told me exactly what kind of person I was dealing with. He was sarcastic, condescending, and most of the time we spoke he boasted about himself. He also did not fail to imply he was successful financially, as if I were supposed to genuflect pursuant to same.

I can say, without fear of contradiction, that if I wanted to make a case for screaming racism that conversation was it. The new managing editor, who is a white male, called none of the other syndicated essayists but me, the black syndicated op-ed essayist on his editorial pages, and is not only sarcastic but also is insultingly condescending in what I perceived to be a bigoted manner.

Not long after that initial conversation, I received an email from him that necessitated my calling. He had taken the position that was tantamount to saying, my being a syndicated writer of opinion meant he would determine not just the verbiage he would “allow” me to use, but, he told me I had no opinions. He told me that, my opinions were not opinions unless he said they were. (A brief discussion ensued)

Now, I mind you, this is a white man telling a black man this, and he is doing it in a harsh, condescending manner. Can you imagine if this were done to a person of color who wanted to make gain based on perceived racial insult?

I discovered that Ivancic is refusing to run my op-eds that are critical of Obama, elite white liberals, and/or opinions concerning racial issues from an American conservative of color perspective.

I received letters from sources who out of fear for their economic safety to remain anonymous. Ivancic is doing his all to prevent my opinions from being published. Even more egregious and insulting to the paper’s readership — he made what many if not most blacks would view as the calculation that he could appease the readership by simply publishing another black face. Ergo, Ivancic started to run op-eds by Clarence Page, one of the most stridently left-wing blacks on the editorial pages today.

But, as I was informed by persons in the community, a person of color on the editorial page wasn’t what they wanted. They wanted the straight-forward, conservative opinion that I presented. A local resident and subscriber to the paper wrote, “It seems this editor has some serious problems with his character.” John Moffett a local resident and subscriber wrote, “I want to get through to him with one of the subjects about loss of readers.” I’m told that phone messages to Ivancic’s office were ignored.

John Moffett also wrote, “Mychal, I am in the process of writing the owner of the Bradford Era. I want to make him cognizant of the situation concerning the articles published in case he doesn’t know. We even have some guy from Miama writing articles about the sewer system in Miami. Who up here cares about that? I hope we can get something done to get it back to the way it was when Marty [the former managing editor] was there. I am going to have about ten people sign it. I am thinking…how to word it…to let him know we want ‘both sides of the story’ in the columns offered in the paper.”

This week, Ivancic committed the most grievous of sins. He deliberately changed my copyrighted, syndicated op-ed to read differently than I had written and intended. He deleted negative references about the media and specifically about managing editors who refused to run conservative opinion. ( the uncorrupted version here )

Ivancic is emblematic of why the mainstream media cannot be trusted. He has been entrusted with the sacred responsibility of keeping the public informed in an honest and truthful manner. Instead, he sets about surreptitiously altering news so as to mislead the public for the purposes of furthering the liberal agenda. He is proof of the lengths to which liberals will go to shape the news in their image.

Coming next: Is the publisher of The Bradford Era encouraging Mark Ivancic’s underhandedness and disrespect for conservatives of color?

    I am from Bradford, PA, and I am extremely embarrassed to read this. Mr. Massie, please know that this town is so much more than this moron. People are kind, accepting, and empathetic. Though people may not always share the same views, most are respectful to those of a different opinion. A few years back, my mother submitted a simple, polite letter to the editor in regard to the poor condition of a local cemetery. They refused to publish her letter. They simply stated to her, that it was their discretion about what to publish. Sadly, this article does not surprise me in the least.

  2. Robert Walion April 23, 2013 at 12:23 pm #

    This is a definite slippery slope from a small town rag, but I am more concerned about paranoid, tinfoil hat rants from Alex Jones, and Glenn Beck and the gullible who believe them. Those two gentlemen wouldn't know the truth if it came up and bit them squarely in the ass…

  3. Wayne E Schmidt April 23, 2013 at 2:02 am #

    I quit taking the Bradford Era a long time ago, as they edited my letters to the Editor, and just printed what they wanted. They are a very left leaning newspaper, I enjoyed it when your articles appeared, They stick some letters in to make them selves look fair but any left leaning loon is printed, and lots of my letters weren't. Glad you called them.

  4. Tom Nelson April 22, 2013 at 5:38 pm #

    Around here we call it the "Bradford Error". I meant to drop the rag several years ago when the sports editor wrote a witless and insulting column about the young men at our service academies prior to the Army-Navy game. This seals the deal.

    • Wayne Schmidt April 22, 2013 at 10:11 pm #

      That is why I cancelled the paper. They edited my letters to the editor. I told them why too. That’s when they had that woman as editor, so it isn’t just this guy.

  5. DLB April 22, 2013 at 10:29 am #

    I guess we are headed toward the type of “reporting” done in North Korea, Iran, Russia… Is this what you want America? Do your children belong to the collective? Can you think for yourself and take care of yourself? I know I’m not addressing any brain-dead, hoping for handouts, Uncle Sam’s my daddy kind of folks on this rant page, just venting!

  6. Angela Lambert April 21, 2013 at 9:50 am #

    Keep exposing the deeds of darkness, Mychal, as the Light of the Lord shines through you! You know you are in good company when you are on Satan’s most wanted list and his minions are attacking you. What an honor to be on the side of God while in the middle of a modern-day Biblical war in which men are being lovers of self and haters of truth! March on warrior of the Lord, march on!

  7. Scott Parisella April 20, 2013 at 3:44 pm #

    Mr. Massie, I thank you for your candor and opinion. I think that you and readers of your
    column need go no further than to consider your eloquence and erudition, to understand
    this editor. He has to work to read your columns. This requires wisdom not just the abilities to decipher letters combined in a prescribed sequence to express thoughts and feelings.
    I have known the previous editor since she was a cub reporter (1970s) for the Bradford Era. Although I often disagreed with her touch of sarcasm, frequent lack of tact and her directness when responding to comment, I at least read the paper with interest and specifically looked forward to your’s and George Will’s thoughts and opinions. I have known a major member of the publisher’s family since I was a small boy growing up with them. I am now 70. I would think that the publisher would think twice about letting his paper become a “liberal only rag”.
    It would seem logical for you press for your publication even to the extent of legal action.
    I am embarassed for my community. I have heard same from professionals in the Era’s readership. What was balanced is definitely not now!
    For years, I have read the Era as well as the sister paper, Olean Times Herald.
    You can rest ashured that the readership of the opinion page will decline and the subscription of the paper along with it. This is a relatively tolerant community, regardless
    of the Era’s staff and editor. Thus we will look forward to your column, if not in the Era
    in the new paper that I will begin reading.

    Disgraceful! Ivancic must not get away with changing opinions on the op-ed pages of his paper. This is libel, pure and simple.

  9. Anne Bryant April 20, 2013 at 3:56 pm #

    Mychal is a journalist. Ivancic is a creative writer. Ie, Mychal writes timely, well thought out commentary, while Ivancic simply writes down his flights of fancy.

  10. Sunny Vee April 20, 2013 at 10:59 am #

    So, Mychal, have you taken legal action against the pig yet?

  11. Dorothea N. April 20, 2013 at 10:38 am #

    Mychal, I’d sue them for every penny they’re worth. What arrogance. Who do they think they are? I’m so fed up with the mainstream media. You just keep doing what you’re doing. We need more people like you. So, thanks and God bless you.

  12. Shawnet April 20, 2013 at 7:27 am #

    Here in Minnesota we used to have a News Council where citizens or organizations that felt a news story was incorrect or had been slanted more to one perspective over another, causing the story to be balanced more to one side than the other. Unfortunately it was dissolved several years ago for lack of issues being brought forward for review. It is populted with both professional journalists and citizens. The hold hearings and debate privately but the results are made public; anyone can attend the hearings.
    A news council cannot make a legal determination but when an effective one is in place, it can take a journalist or news organization to task in a very public way. The last case that garnered very public attention was against a very popular television news reader who ran a story against the main airline here. the final determination was that the journalist had indeed slanted the story against the airline and a public apology was forthcoming from that journalist. The public responded positively to the fact that the journalist was contrite and he continued on for several more years, retiring highly respected, partially because he apologized.
    As a journalist I recommend contacting every single news outlet in the area and making this a news story, TV, radio, print, and all local websites and blogs.
    Never ever give up or quit, and as my Dad always said just keep smiling – it really irritates your enemies.

  13. Chitowngal7 April 20, 2013 at 3:13 am #

    Mychal, as always an excellent article. For the life of me I don’t know how you can keep your cool with despicable low-lifes like Mark Ivancic. He has no moral character & will NEVER understand what you represent. There is such a disease in this Country & what makes me so angry is the unbelievable amount of apathy people have.

    But, you do realize that what is happening is all part of the ‘MASTER PLAN’ for changing America as we knew it. This is all pre-meditated, don’t be fooled for one minute that it isn’t.

    to m.ivancic

    You really do owe Mychal an apology, at the very least. What you have done is not only against copyright law, it is against all moral law of integrity. There are many, many of us who read Mychal’s columns because we appreciate truth, something that seems to be foreign to the thinking of many who claim to report it. I hope you will re-consider your actions.

  17. Ralph Brooks April 20, 2013 at 3:03 am #

    I've gone around with him as well. The man thinks he is above reproach and that he answers to no one. Small town papers should be one of the last bastions of free press in the nation, not ANOTHER hatchet man for the progressive agenda.

  18. Marilyn April 19, 2013 at 10:39 pm #

    Ivansick and liberals in general cannot stand it when a Conservative black person has education and degrees and believes in “work ethic” and has good common sense. Liberals foam at the mouth and spit out vomit that they don’t dare swallow. You have a good chance to take this bigot to court, Mychal.

  19. Laura April 19, 2013 at 10:20 pm #

    Ivancic is an embarrassment to that newspaper and that good town.

  20. Roger Emery April 20, 2013 at 2:19 am #

    Mychal, you are the voice we need to hear, and the truth the country needs to continually be exposed to…especially those who oppose you and deny the validity of your views.

  21. Mindy Robinson April 20, 2013 at 1:29 am #

    I hate to say it , but, you know what? There is a time to see a person for what they are, the guy is a bigot! Press charges against him, there is a time to fight and this is the time!

    Sheer Saratoge, and the left and their ilk have it down to an art! Such dishonesty, lack of respect for anyone even themselves, very destructive mentality.

  24. Marsha M April 19, 2013 at 7:41 pm #

    Thank you Mychal, you do our homework for many of us. I believe most people are much too lazy to investigate TRUTH, so they tend to believe everything they see and hear from their local news source and they believe it to be gospel. Therefore, when someone like Mychal comes along in our life and he actually takes the time to investigate and to set us straight and stands up for his belief even though it is unpopular in media circles. Bravo !

  25. Marsha Humphreys April 19, 2013 at 7:12 pm #

    To Ivancic: That dog don’t hunt! You CANNOT change material to suit your own political agenda! We do not live in Hilter’s Germany or Communist Russia……..yet! Get over your “big ego” liberal self and be fair in print! I follow Mr. Massie’s comments and have found him to be “spot on” most of the time.

  26. Adele Fletcher April 19, 2013 at 3:11 pm #

    Keep on writing & sending it to my E-mail. I am here & listening. Your boss is using the Liberal Chicago thug technique of intimidation. Don’t let him get to you & just keep on writing!

  27. Gene Manwaring April 19, 2013 at 2:34 pm #

    Here is what I just sent to the editor of the Bradford Era RAG:

    I cannot believe as an editor, that you would delete a whole paragraph of Mychal Massie’s submitted column “We The People Must Be Aware”.

    I assume you did not want to be embarrassed? Is it ONLY an editor who is granted “freedom of the press”? Does an op-ed story enjoy the protection of the First Amendment ONLY if the editor agrees with the opinion?

    I think NOT. A newspaper’s job is to present ALL the sides to a story, to let the readers be aware of what is going on. It is NOT the editor’s job to ONLY present one side of a story, to slant the news in the direction HE wants it to be perceived. Censoring one writer to make his column conform to YOUR approval is NOT “Freedom of the Press”!! That is Communism!

    If I were a subscriber of your rag, I would certainly cancel my sub immediately, if not sooner! ANY freedom-loving readers should do the same!

  28. JoAnn Dolberg April 19, 2013 at 2:28 pm #

    Seriously……LAWSUIT! He had no right to mess with your copyrighted material. What a JERK he is. I hope that paper goes into the trashcan; with people like these who are running it, it can only go into the ground. Your faith is being tested right now by the One who is going to judge us all, including that no account and no integrity editor who will bow before you in the end..

  29. Pamela Arnold April 19, 2013 at 2:03 pm #

    Oh Mychal, is there not a better newspaper you can write your articles in, rather than this “bird cage lining” liberal rag? What a Bat Rastard! He has no authority to take away your 1st amendment rights. And that’s exactly what this liberal, marxist, bigot “editor” did. He may as well write the articles himself, since he’s so full of himself. You, sometimes, are just too nice. You could have very well been a name dropper yourself, naming certain people that have far more prestige, knowledge, and common sense, than this “little man” will ever have the privilege of knowing since he is nothing more than a bully sitting upon his own toad-stool. (Gee….reminds me of another fraud we all know!) And as far as some of your associates agreeing with you, but wanting to stay anonymous, I don’t lend them much more credence than you do boehner. Part of what is wrong with America today. People have the backbone of a jellyfish. They remind me of what we now have in Congress. And from my understanding, this so-called paper, doesn’t have much in the way of subscribers anyway. Just why did ivancic come out of retirement? And from where? Someone that writes quips and non-truth quotes to the prez everyday to assuage his narcissistic brain cell, with his own one brain cell? And I saw the particular part he intentionally left out of your essay. Must have hit too close to home? Funny how the “truth” hurts the liars the most! And this is exactly why, I do not read the newspapers anymore than I watch the news entertainment shows. I do have his name, address, phone number and email. But since I am loyal to you and your website here, I do not want to put you in jeopardy, until I know you plan on leaving that despicable place.
    ~God Bless you always~

    I would hope the readers of that Bradford ERA (Equal Rights Amendment?) rag would cancel their subs and otherwise STOP buying that rag IMMEDIATELY! SEND A STRONG MESSAGE in honor of Freedom of Speech!!

  32. Patrick Mumford April 19, 2013 at 5:24 pm #

    This is disgusting. He needs to go back to being retired. Best of luck getting past him Mychal.

  33. Jean Maxton April 19, 2013 at 5:20 pm #

    I'm not one to do much posting such as this, but Mychal, I have only one piece of advice to say to you regarding Ivancic: Think Ruthless.
    Go after him and his cohorts in crime in a big way.
    I just recently signed up for your emails, and I enjoy reading them on a regular basis.

  34. Ann Engel April 19, 2013 at 5:11 pm #

    They are afraid of you. They are scared that your message will finally touch a cord with all mainstream Americans and they can see the tidal wave on the horizon and the final distruction of the Liberal Media folly. Please keep up the good work and spreading the message.. (WE HEAR YOU!)

    • Catherine Stokes April 19, 2013 at 7:48 pm #

      Ann, you hit the nail right on the head. I agree.

  35. John Skoufis April 19, 2013 at 4:49 pm #

    It is not surprising except that it took this long. The mainstream media is corrupt and a curse on America. We can only hope that honesty will return and these people are relegated to the garbage dumps they belong in. I will copy this to all in my book to spread the word.

  36. Marsha Humphreys April 19, 2013 at 4:28 pm #

    The bigot communist is everything a free people hate. They try to shut free speech down when it doesn’t serve their goal. I am sorry this has happened to you. I will pray that God give you strength and the resources to do what you need to do. I read and pass on all of your articles. Thank you so much for you honesty and common sense.

  39. Bart Gillard April 19, 2013 at 4:19 pm #

    Mychal… is there not some sort of legal proceeding you can bring against this obvious bigot, based upon his violation of your copyrighted material? this guy needs to be sued out of existance!

  40. Sandra April 19, 2013 at 12:14 pm #

    Mychall, because we as a Nation have abandoned God the enemy of our souls has come flooding in. Be of good cheer for the Word says that when the enemy comes in like a flood God raises a standard against him.

  41. Chris Miller April 19, 2013 at 12:11 pm #

    One of the reasons we are in a mess as a nation is because of your newly found “friend” If we cannot stop the the insanity we will not last as a nation. We have become a people who are afraid to talk to one another with the intent of resolving issues.

      Mychal Massie is THE MAN!! I doubt there's an editor, alive or dead, with the intellectual firepower required to fully comprehend his writings, much less make him qualified to make any changes.

    “In this world you will have troubles”….is becoming more and more the norm in our world today. IF a person of the conservative persuasion can’t be made to conform to the views of the ‘world’, then ‘they’ will do their best to render the conservative a liar, a bigot, uneducated, illiterate, stupid… name it. If it’s of any comfort, you have lots of company. We love your writing, and appreciate your truthfulness. Keep up the good work, Mychal.

  46. Anne April 19, 2013 at 11:46 am #

    I hope something is done about this egotistical pathetic excuse for an editor. Professional Journalism, like this country, is hanging by a thread because of people like him. This guy actually sounds a lot like the exalted hero he so assiduously protects, Barack Obama. Both of them are a threat to our hard-won freedom, both are contemptible, and I long for the day when tyrants like this are recognized for what they are. Their long-overdue fall from grace need only be followed up by a one-way ticket to a penal colony in some remote inhospitable place like Siberia comes to mind. Vermin like this are illegitimate human imposters whose only service to humanity will be the day when they are forced into the same silence they tyrannically sought to impose on us. May the day come sooner rather than later; our country is in serious jeopardy and we have not a moment to waste.

    Mychal, it is just his kind of bigotry that keeps unthinking men of color and caucasians to be together. This man belongs in the late 40's and 50's. When will folk realize that there is only one race– the human race?

    • Anne April 19, 2013 at 12:01 pm #

      I agree except my thinking is that where they belong is in a maximum security prison where they will be detained ad infinitum. Add their names to the rosters of tyrants who preceded them – Joseph Stalin, Adolph Hitler, Idi Amin, Pol Pot etc. – human cockroaches whose one true act of public service will be the day of their demise.

  50. Vickie Benefield April 19, 2013 at 11:33 am #

    The left are the most outrageously ‘INTOLERANT, BIGOTED, BIASED, LIARS” this country has seen. They reflect a mirror image of people they claim are ruining this country.

    They invariably are alwasy accusing others of being intolerant, but have no tolerance for any other opinion. If you do not agree with their view, then you are a bigot. They have no qualms concerning changing script to agree with their views and they then print the lie, because being not the author’s opinion, it becomes a lie.

    There must be truth in journalism, or we should have no journalism at all. I would prefer it that way, and I am sure many others would rather have nothing at all than have one man’s opinion over and over again. Mark Ivancic has been “begged” out of retirement? Was he always this way, or just in his latter years? He sounds like a left wing narcissistic tyrant. As a general rule, narcissism has a long life, beginning in the younger years. If a lawsuit is feasible, I would suggest that it go forward. The outrage will only be felt by your readers and those who hold your conservative values. I feel that outrage for you, Mychal. Ivancic is typical of most liberals. It’s his way or the highway and he will change copy to make it reflect his personal feelings, giving NO REGARD WHATSOEVER to the readers.

    “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

    It would appear that Mr. Ivancic wishes to (to coin a phrase from Joe Biden) “put ya’ll back in chains.” It fits here better than how Biden intended its usage.

    You have been a voice of straight thinking reason, but that reasoning has been taken away by Mr. Ivancic so that only his way of thinking be considered. I suggest you go get that “reason” back!

    Mychal ,stay in the fight do not acquiesce to this radical left wing liberal ! He would probably like noting more than goad you into some form of a racial conflict contrary to your well balanced conservative aproach to the world we live in !,
    Thank you for your forthright understanding and straight forward thoughts on the deliberate destruction of our great nation by Obama and his left wing Cabal !

    • Star April 19, 2013 at 3:26 pm #

      Applause to you, Mychal. Stand tough for truth and your first amendment rights.

      Despicable is what it is… and we are sick and tired of what is going on. We want to hear what you say because we respect and believe, without a shadow of a doubt, that what you say is relevant and to the point!

      What in hell has happened to this country or did I miss something growing up?

      After reading how you are handling this, I respect you more than ever.

    Sic 'em dog! Mychal may you have success. Hope the local readers follow through and go to the ownership and that their contact bears much fruit.

    It is a national “gag” that is going to get worse, Truth and truthful reporters are being fired or silenced more and more as time goes on so what is the truth now days?

    Mr Massie, I happen to live approximately 30 miles from Bradford . I just thought I would let you know that the town is a run down ,welfare swamp . I know you are a big boy and can take care of yourself but you will not gain an inch by talking to the problem center of our society. This “handout” town is filled with the liberals that want charity rather than freedom. However It is despicable to change the meaning of your powerful words that I enjoy reading .For that I say “Do what you have to do” and I will be sure to spread the word around about the false reporting of the Bradford Era to everyone I know . God Bless!!!!! Roger.
