Amateur Sleuths Aim to Identify Charlottesville Marchers, but Sometimes Misfire

For someone whose only sin was a passing resemblance to someone else — the actual man in the Charlottesville photo has not been conclusively identified — Mr. Quinn bore the direct consequences of the reckless spread of misinformation in breaking news, a common ritual in modern news events.Continue reading the main storyThere is considerable controversy around the practice of “doxxing,” a term for publicly identifying — often with sensitive personal details like addresses, phone numbers and employer information — people who were otherwise anonymous or semi-anonymous. Many social media platforms, including Twitter, consider it a violation of their rules.But it is also a standard practice in journalism to track down and identify individuals caught up in a public news event. While professional news organizations have had their fair share of misidentifications, the ability of anyone to launch a name to national prominence with a few mistaken retweets has heightened the likelihood of destructive mistakes.In the case of Charlottesville, social media users hoped identifying rally participants would lead to real-world consequences for racism. One Twitter account, @YesYoureRacist, was retweeted tens of thousands of times by people trying to help name the men in several photos.The internet vigilantes claimed some successes over the weekend. One rally participant, Cole White, was fired from his job at a hot dog restaurant in Berkeley, Calif., according to Berkeleyside.“The actions of those in Charlottesville are not supported by Top Dog,” the restaurant said in a sign that was posted on Sunday.Another man, Peter Tefft, was repudiated by his entire family in a letter to The Forum, a North Dakota newspaper. Signed by the man’s father, the letter said he would no longer be welcome at family gatherings.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

U.S. Journalist Found Alive in Congo; 5 Others Are Killed

KINSHASA, Congo — Five Congo park rangers have been found dead and an American journalist has been found in good condition in the Okapi Wildlife Reserve after going missing during a militia attack, a local official said Sunday.”The American journalist is safe and healthy. She hid in the forest during an attack,” Mambasa territory administrator Alfred Bongwalanga told The Associated Press. “On the other hand, five park guards have been killed.”Bongwalanga said the army found the American overnight Saturday, and called in her rescue. He did not have her name, saying other details would follow. The identity of the assailants is not known, he said.At least 10 people had gone missing after attacks near a security station Friday outside the town of Mambasa in Congo’s northeast Okapi Wildlife Reserve, but six of them, all Congolese rangers, were later found alive, he said.Continue reading the main story […]

California Today: California Today: Baby Falcons Take Flight in Berkeley

Last month, I moved with my family to Los Osos. We discovered the small coastal town after starting a house search in San Luis Obispo, the popular college town about 10 miles away, and then looked outward.Los Osos, population roughly 14,000, is surrounded by natural beauty. There’s Morro Bay, a playground of sea otters also known as the Gibraltar of the Pacific; the Elfin Forest, a sand dune landscape of miniature California live oaks; and Montana de Oro State Park, a jewel of the Central Coast.At the 12-square-mile park, hiking and biking trails open up to panoramas of rugged coastline every bit as spectacular as those in Big Sur.Yet the name Los Osos commonly elicits blank stares from Californians in other parts of the state.Antoinette Payne, a longtime real estate agent on the Central Coast, suggested that nearby cities like Pismo Beach and Cayucos enjoy greater recognition simply because, unlike Los Osos, they are visible from Highway 101 or the Pacific Coast Highway.“One of the nice things about Los Osos is that it’s kind of off the main track,” she said.That got us wondering: What are California’s other little-known treasures? It can be anything — a city, a beach, a park, a landmark.Tell us at CAtoday@nytimes.com, and please include your full name and city of residence.
