The New York Times stands by its decision to publish the address of police officer Wilson and says that the two reporters who included that little fact along with a copy of Wilson's marriage license in their valuable reporting on the riots and destruction in Ferguson, did nothing wrong.
The two reporters are whining about the fact that the internets retaliated by publishing their addresses on media all over the planet. Those poor vicious bastards are now calling the police for protection.
Can you see the policeman at the precinct picking up the phone and hearing that the reporter who outed one of them knowing that the consequences almost certainly mean the place gets firebombed, feels the need for 24/7 protection because somebody outed her address? I'd tell her I would despatch Officer Wilson the moment we can find him.
