The New York Post has been criticized this week for showing a photo of two men they implied were suspects. The Post’s response:
“Post editor Col Allan defended the newspaper’s decision to run its cover and the story, telling The Huffington Post’s Michael Calderone: ‘We stand by our story. The image was emailed to law enforcement agencies yesterday afternoon “seeking information about these men, as our story reported. We did not identify them as suspects.’ “
One of the men pictured said he has been afraid to go outside.
What do you think? Was the Post justified?
