What the fuck. 

Fucked. Up. Did some googling - Colin Moynihan is the East Village community editor for the City Room blog, whereas Al Baker, the second writer whose credit was added to the revised article, is the Times’ police bureau chief. Explains the difference in perspective; one of them wants to tell the real story and the other wants to tell it from the cops’ point of view.

Umm … You’re wrong. The first article was simply a quick pass to get something up. The second article had been cleaned up and clarified. You’re skewing the facts yourself because you’re only posting the lede of each story. 
If you scroll just a couple paragraphs later, you get the following:

But many protesters said that they thought the police had tricked and trapped them, allowing them onto the bridge and even escorting them across, only to surround them in orange netting after hundreds of them had entered.
“The cops watched and did nothing, indeed, seemed to guide us onto the roadway,” said Jesse A. Myerson, a media coordinator for Occupy Wall Street who was in the march but was not arrested.

Guess what? That’s the same thing that was posted in the first version. The reason there’s a double byline is because both reporters were pulled in to work on a huge, developing story.
I work in newspapers, and I’m pretty livid about people are skewing this and not showing the entire story. You guys know nothing about working at a paper.

Some necessary clarification on this image, currently going viral.
