The NYT’s selective editing disgrace reaches the New York Post:

The family of a Marine killed in Iraq slammed The New York Times yesterday for selectively excerpting a letter he wrote predicting his own death, while the paper scandalously ignored a long passage in which he praised America’s mission.

“I thought they hadn’t finished the story, that they hadn’t told the whole story,” said Timothy Lickness, the uncle of Cpl. Jeffrey Starr, 22, who was killed in Ramadi in April during his third tour in Iraq.

“I wrote to the Times and said it would be proper to honor Jeff by completing the story. They never responded.”

Perhaps Starr’s family should camp outside of the NYT’s building until the editor agrees to meet them. How long might he hold out against the family’s moral authority?
