Yesterday thousands of Kenyans questioned the ethics of @kimidefreytas and the @nytimes after they ran gruesome photos of the #RiversideAttack. We've questioned the ethics of photos that accompany her stories from Africa before.
On Dec. 26, a story by @kimidefreytas that she has pinned to her Twitter feed shows the face of a dead man in #DRC.

Here at @GlobalPress we've worked in #DRC for years, including in this area where this photo was taken. Aside from the ethical concerns of publishing the photo of this dead person and showing his face, the caption also lacked a name.
We wrote to The @nytimes and @kimidefreytas on this issue but didn't receive a response. In the meantime, our team is working to identify this man and provide him and his family the dignity they deserve. We'll publish that information when we find it.
The @nytimes issued lengthy responses when thousands of Kenyans questioned their coverage and demanded better. But @nytimes, you are no less accountable to people in #DRC just because they lack Internet and may not speak English.
