Follow-up: New York Times responds to complaints about their reporting

...poorly:
The Times responded Wednesday evening to The Cutline: "Neighbors' comments about the girl, which we reported in the story, seemed to reflect concern about what they saw as a lack of supervision that may have left her at risk," said Danielle Rhoades Ha, a spokeswoman for the paper. "As for residents' references to the accused having to 'live with this for the rest of their lives,' those are views we found in our reporting. They are not our reporter's reactions, but the reactions of disbelief by townspeople over the news of a mass assault on a defenseless 11-year-old." 
With all due respect, Ms. Ha, I think you kind of missed the point.
