Washington Post Stealth Edits Out Gender of Female Secret Service Agent

Washington Post Stealth Edits Out Gender of Female Secret Service Agent

The Daily Caller’s Derek Hunter caught yet another stealth edit at the Washington Post, a publication notorious for secretly rewriting its news pages without any sort of editorial note. In this case, the Washington Post changed its mind about letting its readers know the gender of a Secret Service agent. The story is in reference to the new and very troubling revelations surrounding the armed White House intruder.

The original story read this way:

The female officer posted inside the front door appeared to be delayed in learning that the intruder, Omar Gonzalez, was about to burst through. Officers are trained that, upon learning of an intruder on the grounds, often through the alarm boxes posted around the property, they must immediately lock the front door. 

Overnight the word “female” was removed:

The officer posted inside the front door appeared to be delayed in learning that the intruder, Omar Gonzalez, was about to burst through. Officers are trained that, upon learning of an intruder on the grounds — often through the alarm boxes posted around the property — they must immediately lock the front door.

Regardless of the Post’s reasoning for the later omission, what we have here is just another example of why the so-called professional mainstream media has no moral high ground to lecture anyone in New Media about ethics, practices or anything else.
