But in the increasingly punitive atmosphere surrounding sexual-assault allegations, he should also fear sending his 18-year-old son to campus, where he may be falsely accused of rape.<br /><br />The national media are deeply feminist. Their default position is the presumption that “the victim” is the female accuser. Some pundits have even argued in national newspapers that the accuser should be “automatically believed.”<br /></p><p><a href="http://www.mrc.org/bozells-column/rolling-stone-crumbles" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Bozell's Column News Analysis Division Feminism rape Rolling Stone Thu, 11 Dec 2014 23:49:23 +0000 tim.graham 47849 at http://www.mrc.org Ferguson, The 'Local Crime Story' http://www.mrc.org/bozells-column/ferguson-local-crime-story <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> By</div> <a href="/author/l-brent-bozell-iii">L.

It’s a “local crime story,” they said. Washington Post media blogger Erik Wemple said that when he asked national reporters about avoiding the Gosnell story, the typical response was “Get out of my face with this agenda-driven stuff, and come back when you have a real story.”<br /></p><p><a href="http://www.mrc.org/bozells-column/ferguson-local-crime-story" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Bozell's Column News Analysis Division Ferguson Missouri race relations Mon, 01 Dec 2014 16:12:08 +0000 tim.graham 47746 at http://www.mrc.org Time to Stop the Moderator Masochism http://www.mrc.org/bozells-column/time-stop-moderator-masochism <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> By</div> <a href="/author/l-brent-bozell-iii">L.
