The WAPO Finally Gets It Right On The Duke Lacrosse Case

by John Hawkins | January 2, 2007 8:06 am

On December 31st, the Washington Post[1] wrote an editorial saying, “It’s past time to drop all charges in the Duke lacrosse case.”

It’s nice to see the mainstream media catching up to where the blogosphere was 7 1/2 months ago on the case.

For example, here at RWN, the Duke case was referred to as “Tawana Brawley Part Deux[2],” way back on April 21, 2006.

So, should we be applauding the WAPO for concluding something that was glaringly obvious to people who were paying attention to the story six months ago or should we be chiding them for taking so long to reach a conclusion?

I’m inclined towards the latter option.
