Emmis magazine retracts glowing Vick article

Atlanta Magazine, which is owned by Indianapolis-based Emmis Communications Corp., has published an unusual retraction to a fawning profile of disgraced Falcons quarterback Michael Vick it published four years ago.

The magazine reprinted the article but with observations in red handwriting, portions marked out and other changes. A section of one sentence, “You know about Vick,” is highlighted in yellow with an arrow tracing to an artists’ rendering of Vick in a courtroom.

Vick has been suspended from the NFL and is awaiting a sentence on dog-fighting charges.
