In Mass., three strikes, you’re out

Due to lapses of judgment in reporting and editing, the op-ed published April 5 titled “In Mass., three strikes, you’re out” by Beacon contributor Amelia Ashmall-Liversidge identified two sources by name as repeat criminal offenders. Though the information was taken on the record, Editor-in-Chief Alexander C. Kaufman, Managing Editor Carly Loman, and Opinion Editor Hayden Wright determined on April 23 that publishing names was inessential to the story, and pulled the piece to limit the risk of compromising sources.
