I think the question raised by others about, "Would you have done this with a list of same-sex married couples?" should actually be asked of one or two of those editors and reporters.

I would be very curious to hear their answers.
The papers would print the names and addresses of reporters, editor, janitors even - plus throw in home phone and personal cell numbers - in a heartbeat....

If they thought for one second it would sell more papers, which in turn would mean selling more advertising space.

"Responsible" journalism died a quick death at the hands of Hearst when propaganda displaced journalism.
Most people know about Hearst and the Spanish American War - but - not too many know about Hearst and Annie Oakley.

Today, with newspapers poised on becoming as scarse as record stores, the papers will do anything they can to survive..
