In question are “racially charged comments” on stories about “the merger of Memphis City Schools and Shelby County Schools,” according to Memphis CBS-affiliate WREG News Channel 3. The Knoxville News Sentinel added that comments were posted on 45 articles and that the newspaper had “deleted as inappropriate” some comments.
