Flashback: "Robert 'KKK' Byrd"
Topic: Newsmax

With the death of Sen. Robert Byrd, we thought we'd take a look back at Newsmax's treatement of the senator.

As we detailed in 2005, Newsmax was obsessed with making sure Byrd's long-ago association with the KKK was mentioned as often as possible, repeatedly referring to him as "Robert 'KKK' Byrd." It attacked Byrd over the association even as it whitewashed Trent Lott's segregationist-friendly remarks.

Times change: Newsmax so far has not gone out of its way to highlight it, and it even published a wire story of testimonials to Byrd.
