On this edition of Political Rewind, DeKalb County CEO Michael Thurmond is spearheading a challenging proposal to make Stone Mountain a symbol of diversity and inclusiveness.  Could it be a blueprint for dealing with Confederate memorials around the state?  Also, the latest financial disclosure reports show that Georgia gubernatorial candidates have raked in boatloads of cash, but a couple are far our front in the fundraising sweepstakes.  We’ll look at what the reports tell us about the state of the race.  Plus, in the aftermath of Sinclair Broadcasting’s controversial order demanding a must-read commentary by local anchors across the country, the news staff of the Denver Post does the almost unheard of: they run an editorial condemning the paper’s owners.  Are news consumers losing outlets for reporting on local issues?
