N.Y. Post reporter gets threats after exposing racist EMT
New York Post | The New York Times
After Candice M. Giove and Susan Edelman reported on a New York City EMT's racist online activities, Giove received vile tweets, and the Post received a message saying its "reporters were likely to be physically attacked," Brad Hamilton reports.
Giove and Edelman's March 24 story was accompanied by a picture of the EMT, Lt. Timothy Dluhos crying when they confronted him about his Twitter account. He has reportedly used Twitter to insult minorities and call New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg "King Heeb," and uses a photo of Adolf Hitler as his profile picture.
"Rest assured, Candice Giove will be fine," an editorial accompanying Hamilton's story reads.
She is a tough reporter. And neither she nor The Post is about to be intimidated by lowlifes.
The New York Police Department recently announced social-media rules for its members, J. David Goodman and Wendy Ruderman reported in The New York Times Thursday. "The Fire Department," which includes the city's EMTs, "is drafting its own social media policy," they write.
Correction: This post originally misspelled Hitler's first name.
