Media Malfeasance: Short of handing local rioters a locator map, the newspaper of record provides enough information to find the home of the police officer some still accuse of murdering Michael Brown for no good reason.
We're not sure what the New York Times was thinking when it published an item last Monday by Julie Bosman on the recent marriage of Officer Darren Wilson along with the town they lived in and street they lived on.
The street in the small St. Louis suburb they live in is only two blocks long, and the piece had almost all the information for some loony tune to find it. The Times didn't print the street number, but that detail could be probably picked up from online sources with a search using Wilson's name and the street and town name.
Slate helped out any crazy that might be interested with a photo of the modest red brick home, lest they fire-bomb the wrong residence.
We might understand the publishing of the town name, but what purpose did printing the street serve?
Philip Corbett, the Times' associate managing editor for standards, which it claims to have, emailed a self-serving explanation for doing it to Erik Wemple at the Washington Post to wit: it had already been done.
"The Times did not 'reveal' anything here," Corbett said. "The name of the street was widely reported as far back as August, including in the Washington Post."
True enough, an Aug. 15 Post article did mention the name of the street in a story shortly after the shooting of Michael Brown and the releasing of Wilson's name.

They have indeed. The blond bimbo lives here in Chicago. She’s been calling the cops almost constantly since her info was published.
Turnabout is ALWAYS fair play in my book.
The offending article appeared in the Monday Nov. 24 Times.
Julie's been with the Times for more than 10 years. She started out as assistant to Maureen Dowd.
It’s not reckless. It’s deliberately wanting some violent street thug to attack the cop at his house. This is intentional and with full knowledge of the possible consequences. This is a criminal action.
The NYT president should be hauled into court.
“She started out as assistant to Maureen Dowd.”
Learned at the feet of the Queen scumball.
The Obama sons want to beat him to death with hammers.
NYT seeks to facilitate.
Meanwhile there are not even any editors or management minimally sane enough to see why this could be disastrous?
The New York Times will swirl down the drain and likely will not even exist as a newspaper in the coming years.
(I say "Julie," but I'd never heard of her before last week. Though I was a fan of Dick Bosman back in the day.)
It is certainly not “reckless.” It is a deliberate act with the intent to get Wilson and his family killed in retribution for not being the wanton killer of black children that NYT had determined him to be. The Left is substituting Lex Talionis for the Rule of Law.
Not stupidity. Malevolence of Progressives.
I am sure NYT is making a large effort to ferret out the identities of all those Traitors-to-the-Cause that told the truth to the Grand Jury.
It wasn’t reckless.
It was malicious.
With any luck Wilson will get to plug a couple more of the “gentle giants” trying to break into his home....
White guilt/privilege makes the damn commie libs do the stupidest things. They can’t help themselves, they’re all morons. Especially those who “work” for the New Yawk Slimes.
Well little Julie Bosman was caught shoplifting a few years ago. That’s probably why she hates law enforcement.
