Several weeks ago, I posted an item listing the best articles and blog postings to have appeared on the case. There’s been considerable quality work since that time, so it seemed reasonable to do an updated post.
- Joseph Neff, “Experts: Lacrosse ID’s Likely Tainted,” N&O
- Kurt Andersen, “Rape, Justice, and the ‘Times,’”
- Benjamin Niolet, “Stormy DA at the Center of Lacrosse Case,” N&O
- Cash Michaels,” “Ethical Questions Raised About Duke Case Prosecution,”
- Ruth Sheehan, “Trip to Cabbie’s Trial a Waste, with the Meter on,” N&O
- Liestoppers, “Our Collective Voice: Letter to Holloway”
- John in
, “Duke Alumni Site Hacked?” Carolina
- “Follow the Money”
- “Justify or Retract”
- “Nifong’s Political Fallout”
I hope that those who subscribe to National Review have read Anthony Dick’s fine article on the effects of the case. (It’s firewalled on the internet.) And, in the interests of full disclosure, the Andersen article referenced above says complementary things about this blog.
Judges favorable ruling today and interview with Ed Bradley of 60 minutes.
I just read Kurt Anderson's piece, and you're right, it is excellent and it is very complimentary to your site. But the fact is that you really do deserve the credit he gives you, and quite frankly, you should be recognized by many, many others in the MSM. Of course you won't be, but at least you get a little well deserved recognition for your hard work. Well done.
See this on Slate.com:
I got here via the Slate and Anderson pieces, but in doing so I Googled your name and came across the Chronicle story on your battle to get tenure.
I'm impressed by this blog, and also by your tenure fight. Have you ever written something that finds a common thread between the two? Both seem like major injustices fueled by the work of agenda-driven, hypocritical faculty.
K.C., I believe you have been the unsung hero in this whole thing. While I have been firing away with opinions and accusations (and I stand behind them), you have been uncovering facts, and taking apart the prosecution's case.
If the defense team is smart, it will be assigning someone full-time just to go over your postings, as you have laid out everything (or nearly everything) the defense needs to blow this thing out of the water.
I can only hope that the 60 Minutes piece will put this case out of its misery. However, as you so aptly have noted, Nifong (or Liefong, as I call him) has no other choice but to continue this farce, as he has backed himself into a corner.
Again, you have been a true hero in all of this.
William L. Anderson
