While offering a reduced price on Sept. 11 is more apt to offend someone than doing the same thing on Veterans Day, the Wisconsin golf club promotion could have been much worse, said Kathleen Culver, associate director of the Center for Journalism Ethics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
"You have a small business that’s woven into the community, they were doing a promotion, thought they were commemorating 9-11, they ran it and it blew back on them," Culver said. "They apologized. Really, does the story need to go any further?"
