If you thought the New York Times couldn’t get any worse, you might be wrong. It turns out they published an article that included Officer Darren Wilson’s home address, where he and his wife live.
Now due to safety precautions, Breitbart decided to edit out the specific street name mentioned in this New York Times excerpt:
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.
They updated the article, claiming to remove a photo they deemed inappropriate:
An earlier version of this post included a photograph that contained information that should not have been made public. The image has been removed.
Researcher Charles C. Johnson tweeted that he called the homes of the writers responsible for the published article.
Julie Bosman of the NYT responded back, tweeting that she took out the photo of their updated article. However, the address and relative location of Wilson’s home had not been removed.

Now even if they had enough courage to remove the home address, the damage is still done. The location has been released, putting the Wilsons’ safety at risk. In fact, citizens have gone to social media and tweeted the address as well.
This type of behavior of tactics used by the New York Times and other liberal sources are nothing new. Instead of respecting the evidence and rule of law, when a jury decision such as this doesn’t go their way, they tend to resort to this disgusting behavior. A world renowned newspaper and media source, regardless of political ideology, deserves to be held to high standards. If they want an excellent reputation, this certainly isn’t the way to do it.
There is one question NYT has to answer: Why did they release Wilson’s home address after he was cleared of any indictment? It is inexcusable and completely unjustified for what they did. To them, their political agenda is still more important than maintaining the safety of Wilson’s location.
