The Importance of Words

On March 8 the New York Times publishing a shockingly misogynistic piece of journalism about the gang rape of an 11 year old girl.

"Vicious Assault Shakes Texas Town by James C. McKinley Jr."

As of right now, the only response from the New York Times to the outcry about the way this piece was written comes from Arthur Brisbane.

"Arthur S. Brisbane is the readers' representative. He responds to complaints and comments from the public and monitors the paper's journalistic practices. His opinions and conclusions are his own. His column appears at least twice monthly on the Sunday Op-Ed pages. He started his term August 2010."

"Gang Rape Story Lacked Balance by Arthur S. Brisbane"

You got to do better than that Times.
