Network apologizes for mocking town name

by thoughtfulconservative

From Yahoo! News,

A cable sports network says it no longer will make Athol the butt of its jokes.
Comcast SportsNet said Thursday it would pull a newspaper ad that leaders of the small central Massachusetts town called insulting and offensive.

The ad featured two side-by-side signs that together read: “We can pronounce Worcester … without sounding like an Athol.”

Fine. But didn’t the AP just make a joke at the town’s expense with the first paragraph?
