An Interesting Blast 

The alleged rape of a black stripper by Duke athletes has largely passed out of the headlines, but the apparent injustice of it hasn't. This is an interesting discussion of reportage about the case by The New York Times and a blast from a former Timesman who usually isn't so angry. The young men involved have lost their reputations for life, almost certainly unfairly, but the newspaper isn't ready to say that. And, who is going to argue with the Times or its archives?

The columnist makes a strong case for a blogger who is addressing the unfairness of the situation. It's an insight into how new media can work to redress imbalanced media coverage. PR practitioners take note.
