EXCELLENT READ! I find it absolutely amazing that there is nothing to check the "4th estate." This sad unfolding of uncertainties-reported-as-truth is a true depiction of everyday news reporting. The media repeatedly shares opinion, not fact. It is all about generating a profit! If it bleeds, it leads! Sensationalism for all; truth be damned! The media is not in business to share a truth; they are in business to sell ad space and commercial air time. If they truly cared about getting FACTS, and not relying on conjecture and "sexy" suppositions, they might garner some level of respect!
The then-Duke "leadership" and the flaming liberal academics who sought to use this sad event as a platform to air their opinions are actually married to same principle of cowardice! Go look at the Constitution and the principles of American justice: Innocent until proven guilty...as opposed to the comment reflected in the book, "Innocent until proven innocent!"
To paraphrase Dave Evans, I hope none of them ever experience the same ordeal these families endured!
