Village Voice Offers Mea Culpa For Posting Inappropriate Link

april 7, 2006  10:25 am
The NY-gossip blog Gawker tweaked the Village Voice this morning for posting a home-page link on to a six-year old story on "Online Celeb Torture" written by Peter Braunstein, who was charged last year with brutalizing a woman in her Manhattan apartment. The Voice quickly removed the link and posted an editor's note, admitting that the employee responsible for the link "should have known better" and that Gawker's ridicule was well-placed.
