And now back to this developing story regarding Iowa's largest newspaper coming under fire today.
Critics angry after the -- registered decides it will be a good idea to publish an interactive map online which it did yesterday it's down now.
But it was online and if you click on line you can see it's still.
Retailing be security levels.
Of all of the school districts in the state of -- couple Reid refused to respond but virtually all.
It he -- who has security who does not have security.
Who has none who has you know some and gives all these details.
On whether your children if -- in Iowa are protected -- are not.
Trace Gallagher has the very latest live from our West Coast and from Trace.
And the -- maybe it was part of a larger asteroid did one register was doing about school resource officers and Iowa the -- you mentioned we're gonna show it to you keep in mind we have taken off all the colors okay we put a -- black but there were red dots indicating the schools with no security there were green dots indicating schools with security and gray dots for districts that did not respond to the survey at all.
The did one register got complaints and took down the -- issuing a statement that reads in part here.
We listed no addresses or the names of specific schools.
Just the district's -- is now what the school what the paper fails to mention.
Is the map was actually interactive so all of you clicked on a dot you didn't get this specific name of the school but she did get the district.
And you've got where the district was located.
As well as the number of students and some of these districts only have a couple of schools not very hard to figure out exactly what schools are there.
The editor of the paper is walking this back pretty big time saying again here I'm quoting.
I love the role that we play here at Iowa and I care too much about the safety of school teachers and students to do anything.
So that people would think that we were being reckless and heartless keep in mind that man Rick Green.
We just got off the -- with -- and you're gonna have -- later in the show.
He is going further telling us just now the parents -- the one that call us all the time asking does my district have security and are my children protected they wanted to know.
Is there a police presence in my school.
Asking does my district have police presence that's why they say they put the map up there -- and the conversation by conveying to us that the results were wrong now.
The school administrators of -- also listed issued a comment saying and I'm quoting here.
In our understanding -- is understand the de Moines register has removed the interactive map relating to security officers school resource officers.
As they may not have initially considered.
The unintended consequences.
Of posting such information.
The paper said they were gonna put up a brand new -- Now the editor of the paper says no no no they're not putting up any new maps the maps are done.
Some say this is very reminiscent of the New York journal when they posted what you just showed there a little while ago.
All of the gun owners' names and addresses the de Moines register the New York journal -- by the way owned by Gannett.
Which is better known for publishing USA.
But the school district very clearly -- and saying this was not a good idea.
Or that that the paper right.
