With Midterms Over, NYTimes Suddenly Notices Horrific Crime In City

At a glance

  • Oh, now The New York Times notices horrific crimes in the city: On Friday, it reported on a brutal rape that took place in a West Village park just days before last week’s midterm elections.
  • The Times story recounted how police had been seeking alleged attacker Carl Phanor, a homeless man with 25 prior arrests, for two earlier attacks only to at last nab him after a third horror on Nov. 3.
  • In that case, the attacker choked a female jogger so hard she lost consciousness, then knocked her to the ground, raped and robbed her. All in a park considered safe. And, again, just days before an election in which crime was a major issue.
  • Worth reporting, no? Not to the Times’ editors.
