How is it responsible journalism to publish the homeowner's addresses for the 10 most expensive homes on the Magic Mountain?

July 27, 2007 08:11 AM

As the Enquirer does this morning.  It's class warfare journalism, and it's unsafe.  I know it's part of the public record, but it doesn't have to be publicized.  Those are two different things.

Remember this from two years ago in Chicago?

Federal judge's family killed

Husband, mother found slain in basement

Jurist had been a target of white supremacist

Well the Enquirer's list includes a federal judge's home address, and she has to deal with the criminal element every single day.  That doesn't need to be in the paper.  Most judges try to keep their home addresses on the dl security reasons. 

And as for the other names on this list, why not just run that under the headline "Kidnappers Look Here"?

Typical. You only like rich people

Lindsey - What are you talking about?

A second (and less important) item of obsurdity regarding this article is that the article is a grand total of two sentences in length. The Cincinnati Enquirer is the only paper I know of that is pathetic enough to consider two sentences an article worth publishing.

I don't understand Lindsey's comment either.

As for the Enquirer and its journalists, two sentences is about all they are capable of putting together.

My peeps, my peeps.

"Eat the rich."


Wonder if Cunningham Road is named after the famous "Great American"? He does live in Indian Hills, right?
