THE TIMES MUFFLES ANOTHER CAMPUS RAPE CASE by KC JOHNSON
Sunday’s New York Times ran a lengthy story on what appears to be amishandled allegation of sexual assault at Hobart and William Smith. (This was one of at least a dozen articles the Times has run on the topic, even as the “paper of record” has yet to run even one article on any of the due process lawsuits filed by accused students.) In a significant shift, the article was penned not by Richard Pérez-Peña, heretofore the paper’s go-to reporter on the topic, but instead by Walt Bogdanich. Could it be that evenTimes editors have concluded that Pérez-Peña has lost all credibility on the issue?
