On the left is a paragraph from the New York Times about Mike Brown’s “troubled” teenage years; on the right is a paragraph from Rolling Stone about Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, one of the Boston Marathon bombers.
What could possibly account for the difference in presentation of these two teenagers?
And let’s remember that one was unarmed when he was shot to death by a police officer who stopped him for walking in the street after allegedly stealing some cigars and pushing a store clerk, while the other was taken alive after allegedly setting off a bomb at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing a police officer, engaging in a shootout with a host of other police officers, and then hiding from a full-scale manhunt.

There’s some line editor up in the Times building right now, pondering whether they did enough editing on this piece.

She’s No One’s Idea of a Grandma | The New York Times
“I am definitely somebody who, at a party, sits on the side and has a long conversation with two people,” Susan Sarandon said. “I’m not a drinker, I’m more of a stoner.”


I’ve always loved her. She will be the coolest grandma. #susansarandon #nytimes
