New York Times Irresponsibility...

Main Stream news media acting ignorantly and irresponsibly.

Howard Kurtz - The New York Times, whether consciously or not, has just endangered Darren Wilson’s life.

With tensions running high in Ferguson over the lack of an indictment for Wilson’s killing of Michael Brown, the paper has published the officer’s approximate address -- the street and town where he lives with his new wife, who also is named.

Given the racial animosity unleashed by Brown’s death, given the rioting and the looting and the stores that were set afire, how can a news organization make it easier for some crazy zealot to track down Wilson?

But there it is in the paper:

“Officer Wilson and [blank] own a home together on [blank] Lane in [blank], Mo., a St. Louis suburb about a half-hour drive from Ferguson.”

I mean, why not add a locator map?

The piece was a seemingly innocuous scooplet about Wilson, who had dropped out of sight before the grand jury decision, getting married.

As Mediaite columnist Joe Concha puts it, “Regardless of your thoughts on Wilson’s guilt or innocence, how can anyone believe providing his street and name of his wife be anything but irresponsible?”

I suppose we shouldn't be the least bit surprised.

  1. The New York Times hasn't had s--t for brains for quite some time now and, so, no, we definitely "shouldn't be the least bit surprised."

  3. I don't think it matters. The Time didn't give away anything anyone couldn't have easily ascertained. This young couple is going to have to move away and start someplace else. It happens. That's life.

    I hope this gets posted.
