Janet Hasson – Map: Where are the Journal News employees in your neighborhood?

      By Robert Cox on Wed, 12/26/2012 – 17:39

ShareThisThe map indicates the addresses of all Journal News Employees in the New York Tri-State area. Each dot represents an individual Journal News employee — a reporter, editor or staffer. The data does not include freelancers — reporters or photographers — which can be hired without being an employee. Being included in this map does not mean the individual at a specific location is a responsible reporter or editor, just that they are a reporter or editor.

Data for all categories is included, but certain information is not available on an individual basis.

To create the map, Talk of the Sound submitted Google searches for the names and addresses of all Journal News employees in the New York Tri-State area. By state law, the information is public record.

Readers are still putting together records and could not immediately provide some data. The map will be updated when that data is released.

Welcome Instapundit readers! Thanks Glenn. Welcome For What It’s Worth readers. Thanks Chris. Welcome Gateway Pundit readers. Thanks Jim. Welcome Newsbusters readers. Thanks Tom. Welcome Atlantic Wire and Yahoo! readers. Thanks J.K. Welcome readers of The Blaze. Thanks Liz.

Al Tompkins of the Poynter Institute has a thoughtful article on the journalistic considerations behind the Journal News decision to publish their map. I find myself entirely in agreement with his views on this issue.

The problem is not that the Gannett-owned Journal News was too aggressive. The problem is that the paper was not aggressive enough in its reporting to justify invading the privacy of people who legally own handguns in two counties it serves.

GOING GLOBAL: El Pais, the largest-circulated daily in Spain, has linked this article. Politiken, one of Denmark’s leading papers, has linked this article. The Daily Mail, the United Kingdom’s second biggest-selling daily newspaper, linked this article. Toronto Sun, one of Canada’s largest papers, has linked this article. Lenta.ru, one of the most popular Russian language online resources, has linked this article.

My map is a “rather sad-looking Google map” according to Rebecca at The Gothamist.

Newspaper Publishes Gun-Owner Addresses, Bloggers Retaliate

By Melissa Darcey, Fri, December 28, 2012

When you go for controversy, prepare for antagonism.

Several days ago, the Journal-News, a newspaper serving the Westchester and Rockland counties of New York, published an interactive map with a list of names and addresses of local gun owners. Rather than garner applause and support, gun owners and privacy advocates went on the attack.

One blogger, Christopher Fountain, was so outraged that he attacked back with a list of his own—the names, addresses, and phone numbers of the Journal-News staff, including editor Cyndee Royle.

In his blog post, “Keep up the heat,” Fountain asks his readers to continuously contact the newspaper and request that they stop posting the private information of gun owners.

Blogger Robert Cox, of Talk of the Sound, went one step further. Instead of posting a list, Cox mapped the addresses of all the newspaper staff. But with only 11 staff members, his map is nowhere near as visibly powerful as Journal-News’ gun owners map.

Even if the retaliations aren’t as big of a punch, people like Cox and Fountain are rightly upset.

Fountain spoke with CNN’s “Early Start” about the gun-owner map and his retaliation.

“In the aftermath of Newtown, it was obviously one tragedy, but somehow they were conflating legal gun owners with some crazed tormented devil up in Newtown and putting the two together. And I was offended by that I wondered how they would like it if their addresses were published.”

Fountain adds that the newspaper may have inadvertently revealed the identities of citizens in hiding. He says, “I’ve received emails from abused women who were under protective order and in hiding and they’re terribly afraid that now their names and addresses are all over the Internet and accessible through that map.”

Fountain states that, by posting his own list of newspaper staff addresses, he was simply fighting back and wanted them to know how it felt for their private information to be shared.

Journal-News has yet to release a statement directly related to Fountain’s or Cox’s blog posts, but yesterday the president and publisher of the Journal News Media Group, Janet Hasson, spoke to POLITICO, defending their gun map, stating “We knew publication of the database [as well as the accompanying article providing context] would be controversial, but we felt sharing information about gun permits in our area was important in the aftermath of the Newtown shootings.”

Good intentions or not, Journal-News has landed itself in a sticky situation. While they have the right to share information as they see fit, one wonders whether they were prepared for reader responses and outrage, especially from those who feel their privacy has been violated. While the newspaper may feel they were justly serving the community, they may have also put the identities of some in danger. One can only hope this move doesn’t end in irony with violence against the identified gun owners.

Too funny: Journal News removes my disclosure of publisher Janet Hasson’s address

3 Gate House Lane (armory located second floor bedroom, right)

3 Gate House Lane (armory located second floor bedroom, right)

After reading the Journal-News’ courageous exposure of the home addresses of gun owners I strolled over to the comment section and replied to another reader’s inquiry as to the home address of the publisher by supplying that information (Janet Hanson, 3 Gate House Lane, Mamaroneck NY 10543 (248) 594-2197). Checking just now, I see that the paper has deleted my response.

Well isn’t that brave of them.

Janet Hasson – Unintended Consequences
