    Howard Kurtz ran a segment where Jack McCallum regretted that he didn't dig deeper in his sympathetic portrayal of Jerry Sandusky. And with some irony, he also ran a highly sympathetic interview with Lauren Ashburn. It is of course, possible to believe both her story and that of Herman Cain's accusers, but contest – given the difficulty of verifying she-accused, he-denies situations – their conclusions.
    The fact that Howard Kurtz did not press Ms. Ashburn for specifics, as in "What do we do in regards to these grey areas given the fact that women brought false accusations against Duke lacrosse players and daycare owners," shows that members of the media will forever have certain select sympathies with certain subjects they interview, even when the pitfalls of those sympathies are pointed out to them on the very same show.

    Lauren Ashburn sounds as if she would take the side of the horny white women who accused the Scottsboro Boys. Her position seems to be that any accuser who makes a claim, regardless of how farfetched, should be treated as a credible person so as not to deter other accusers from coming forward. That would mean the accused could not make a defense, and that is unacceptable.
