  •  I don't think it will have much impact (6+ / 0-)

    But the missed opportunity bothers me.  The NYT has the resources to do solid reporting on how suburban and exurban police forces are funded, trained, supervised and held accountable.  The NYT has the resources to provide the overview and solid statistical reporting on police shootings of black and Latino kids.

    These sorts of articles bother us, are ignored by others, and read and used to excuse police violence by still others. It won't kill the NYT because many news outlets will do even worse.

    •  of course if will have an impact. NYT is (0+ / 0-)

      not selling any papers to the teapers, but is selling papers to progressive and moderates who are pissed off to see these articles.  Each NYT mistake is another corrosive drip.
