This is Emmylyn Anonical. She’s the girlfriend of the late Corporal Jeffrey B. Starr, on the right. Read what she has to say about the NYTimes’ selective editing of Cpl. Starr’s letter to her in the NYPost (kudos to Post reporter Lukas Alpert for keeping on the story):
The girlfriend of a Marine killed in Iraq said she was devastated when she saw how The New York Times cherry-picked a letter her “first love” intended her to read in case he died.
“It was sad that we had to go through this some more. I was upset about what they took out of that letter,” said an emotional Emmylyn Anonical, 22, whose boyfriend Cpl. Jeffrey Starr died in Iraq earlier this year.
In her first public comments since the letter scandal erupted, Anonical told The Post that going public with the private letter was one of the hardest decisions of her life.
Seeing it used by The Times to misrepresent her boyfriend’s beliefs about the war stung deeply, she said.
“The reason I chose to share that letter was the paragraph about why he was doing this, not the part about him expecting to die. It hurt, it really hurt,” she said by phone from Seattle.
