'No Angel'

It turns out today's front-page New York Times article on Michael Brown referred to the black thug teenager as "no angel," which is exactly correct. Except that's not politically correct, so out came the knives of the leftist censors to tear into the skin of public editor Margaret Sullivan.

In my view, the timing of the article (on the day of Mr. Brown’s funeral) was not ideal. Its pairing with a profile of Mr. Wilson seemed to inappropriately equate the two people. And “no angel” was a blunder.

In general, though, I found Mr. Eligon’s reporting to be solid and thorough. I came away from the profile with a deeper sense of who Michael Brown was, and an even greater sense of sorrow at the circumstances of his death.

Hope and change!
