Since 2 NYT Reporters Published Darren Wilson's Home Address, Here's Theirs, And Their Contact Info
Two reporters for Pravda-on-the-Hudson (and apparently their editors)thought it would be awfully cute to publish the home address of officer Darren Williams and his wife. They did this in full knowledge of the $5,000 cash bounty radical black groups have placed on Wilson's head, and the $1,000 bounty on any member of his family. They did it in full knowledge of the threats of rape and murder levied against Wilson as well as other police in Ferguson and their families.
So, with a hat tip to Charles Johnson at GotNews, here they are:
New York Times reporters Julie Bosman and Campbell Robertson published the address of Darren Wilson in the New York Times so here are their addresses.
…It would be wrong, for example, to publish Bosman’s address at
5620 N WAYNE AVE APT 2
CHICAGO, IL 60660-4204
It would be similarly wrong to publish the address of Robertson, too.
1113 N DUPRE ST
NEW ORLEANS, LA 70119-3203
So why do journalists think they are beyond examination?
How does it advance the story to know where Darren Wilson and his newly wed live?
You can also tweet Bosman, @juliebosman. Robertson's is @campbellnyt, and his e-mail at last report is firstname.lastname@example.org
Of course, this isn't remotely equitable. These two genuinely awful people aren't under a threat of death the way Wilson and his wife are. Nor are they going to be forced to sell a home under duress when they're already under considerable stress or be forced to spend the money to move quickly simply to protect their physical safety...which is also going to saddle them with double house payments until they can sell or rent the old one. And that's going to take some time, because who's going to want to move into a house with a target painted on it?
Nevertheless, here are their addresses, so that you can communicate to them directly about your feelings on the matter.
Hopefully the Wilsons can sue the pants off of these people and the foul publication they work for.
UPDATE: Thanks To Terresa at The Noisy Room, we now have phone numbers! Campbell's is 504-218-7703. Bosman's is 312-552-7204 (work) and 646-753-2052 (mobile).
