Today, a tough detailed review by a member of the editorial board:
A Dishonest Rewrite of the Duke Lacrosse Case
On an author's publicity tour, he's even more explicit in trying to taint the students who were falsely accused.
To Mr. Cohan, apparently, true justice is served by allowing a prosecutor oblivious to ethical constraints to bring a groundless case in the hopes of winning a jury conviction. And by the writing of his book attempting to restore the taint of guilt and suspicion on three young men who had been cleared despite all Mr. Nifong's fraudulent effort. Mr. Cohan's grim refrain, "We will never know what happened in that bathroom"-a faithful image of the substance Mr. Nifong brought to his case-stands as a perfect tribute to that predecessor.
IT IS ABSOLUTELY REMARKABLE THAT THE "WALL STREET JOURNAL" LET A MEMBER OF THE EDITORIAL BOARD WRITE A VEHEMENT REPUDIATION OF THE STUPID, INCOMPETENT REVIEW OF "THE PRICE OF SILENCE" BY DAVID M. SHRIBMAN WHICH IT PUBLISHED ON 11 APRIL 2014. THE "WALL STREET JOURNAL" DOES ITSELF PROUD BY DOROTHY RABINOWITZ'S LONG REVIEW. RABINOWITZ ABSOLUTELY VINDICATES THE GREAT STRING OF ONE STAR REVIEWS THIS CONTEMPTIBLE BOOK HAS RECEIVED ON AMAZON. The title of my review here still stands--William D. Cohan's THE PRICE OF SILENCE should never have been published, and the adulatory reviewers stand shamed. Shribman may never again show his face east of Pittsburgh.
