NYT publishes private information

How often does the New York Times publish email addresses or mobile phone numbers

for people in the news, let alone people important enough to merit their

own story on the front page? Well, it’s done

it today. But maybe giving out an Iraqi mobile phone number isn’t as irresponsible

as giving out an American one? All I know is that even the most irresponsible

bloggers tend to redact that kind of information. If the NYT wanted to reproduce

this chap’s business card, that’s one thing. But failing to blur out at least

a few letters or digits, that’s just wrong.
