Newspaper Omits Obama Win

Protesters in Oklahoma rally against a local newspaper after the paper decided not to publish the results of Tuesday's presidential election.

The Sapulpa Daily Herald printed Wednesday's paper like any other day.

Except for one omission....no mention that Barack Obama won presidential election.

One paragraph on the front page did report the majority of Creek County voted for McCain.

Protesters said it was a sign of racism and poor journalism.

Publisher Darren Sumner says he would've done the same thing had McCain won.

He says viewers get their national news from TV or the internet and the paper's main focus is local events.

The Herald's circulation is about five-thousand.
