Samantha remarked, "I can't imagine calling any other group in society 'weirdos, freaks, dirty" and getting away with it in a newspaper'".

This really is a question of the quality and integrity of the paper and the community it serves. Dreschel is a muckracker; this sort of offensive provocation is what he's paid to produce. Such "journalism" is for some reason extremely popular in failed/failing industrial cities, particularly in the US. Read the paper or watch the commentary on the local news coming out of places like Buffalo, Detroit, Baltimore, etc. and you'll see that Dreschel is just a type.
