The New York Times has posted a correction: “An earlier version of this post included a photograph that contained information that should not have been made public. The image has been removed.”
However, the “information that should not have been made public,” in the Times’ view, is not the name of the street where Officer Wilson’s home is located. The story still contains that information. The Times has merely removed the photo of Wilson’s marriage license from their article.
Matzav.com will not link the story or give out the specific information, but the New York Times had no qualms whatsoever about publishing almost all the information needed for Officer Darren Wilson’s enemies to track him and his wife down at home:
Officer Wilson and [his wife] own a home together on XXXXXXX Lane in XXXXXXXXXX, Mo., a St. Louis suburb about a half-hour drive from Ferguson.
This malicious move by the New York Times has not gone unnoticed by Ferguson’s protesters:
But printing his street name in the nation’s most influential newspaper on the day the grand jury is expected to hand up a decision on the indictment could reignite interest in — and awareness of — the location, and some critics worry that it could result in protesters descending on his home. Slate even went a step further than the Times, publishing an article featuring a photo of the modest, red-brick house on Monday.
A number of Twitter users — some of whom have identified themselves as planning to protest the grand jury decision — have tweeted the location of Wilson’s home as they gear up for rallies. The house number was not printed in the Times, but the street in the St. Louis suburb of Crestwood where it sits is only about two blocks long, and the house number can be easily located via online sources using only the street name and Wilson’s name.
This type of behavior is nothing new from our elite media. When the media was pulling out the stops to electronically lynch George Zimmerman like they are Wilson, CNN broadcast Zimmerman’s Social Security number to the world.
When the media wants you destroyed they want you destroyed.
