The New Yorker article by David Remnick “In the first two years of this year, I counted six articles about the disappearance of Jennifer Steinle in California. “
The Times article by James Risen and Barton Gellman “The Post is one of those newspapers that does a really good job of making its readers feel like they’re getting real news.
“The New Yorker article by David Remnick “In the first two years of this year, I counted six articles about the disappearance of Jennifer Steinle in California.
The Times, in its front-page profile, wrote about it.
But then the Times went quiet.
“The Wall Street Journal article by Philip Rucker and Stephen Kinzer “The Times article was an attempt to make the case for the death penalty.
I’ve read it a dozen times and have not once felt anything but a sense of relief.
I’m not sure I’d have felt anything else.
“Slate article by Arianna Huffington “I thought it was a very smart piece.
I didn’t read it to be surprised.
I read it because it was there.
And it made sense.
And the fact that it was written by a journalist, who has spent decades covering the media, was a bit of a surprise.
“Vox article by Ezra Klein “If the story were to ever be published, I would be in favor of it.
If it weren’t for the Times piece, I’d be in the opposite camp.
“The Atlantic article by Ta-Nehisi Coates “If a murder investigation turns out to be a fraud, that doesn’t necessarily mean the truth has been uncovered.
But I don’t think there is a better example of how a crime story can be spun into something misleading.
“Politico article by Ben Jacobs “This is not a new phenomenon.
In the early 2000s, the New York Times ran a cover story about a New Jersey case where a woman who had allegedly killed her two children had told a police officer that she was not pregnant with them.
She had just taken her two younger boys, ages six and seven, out for a walk.
After she returned, the police arrested her for the crime.
She was convicted and sentenced to life in prison.
Her defense team sought the death sentence, but the Supreme Court declined to hear their case because the crime was not an act of rape.
A woman who told police she had been raped in the 1970s told police that she did not remember having sex with her attacker.
“The Daily Beast article by Andrew Kaczynski “When I first heard about the case, I thought, This is an incredible coincidence, because I was never a fan of the New Jersey prosecutor.
I thought he’d made a mistake and made an awful mistake in charging the woman with a crime that she had no involvement in.
I was horrified.
“Salon article by Tania Lombardo “In this case, the case that’s gotten a lot of coverage, and this is a case where there’s been a lot more attention on it, I think it’s actually not a great story.
I think there’s probably some kind of misunderstanding of what the facts are, or what really happened in this case.
“The Guardian article by Matt Taibbi “I feel like this case is about how the police can be better.
How you can make them less vulnerable to making mistakes.
But what about how you can actually make them a little less vulnerable, to the police, and more likely to be able to catch a rapist or a serial killer in the act?
“Salon article “The story is that the woman had a boyfriend, and he was convicted of murder.
The boyfriend was convicted, too, but not for the murder.
She went to jail for another crime, and she was convicted for another, different crime.
“Salon’s Tom Jacobs “I don’t understand how that can be a good thing, when there are so many other cases of people getting away with murder and other crimes.
“Salon piece “It’s a case that I feel has been misreported, misreported so badly that it’s basically an invented crime.
The only thing that the prosecution has is the confession of the boyfriend.
“Salon.com article by Sarah Silverman “I think that there’s a lot that we need to know about this case.
I do not believe the case is in the realm of an actual rape or sexual assault.
And I think that the boyfriend was really good at his job, and the police were pretty good at their job, but I think the prosecution could have done better.
“New York Daily News article by Rebecca Berg “It has no connection whatsoever to the disappearance.
It’s just a woman being afraid for her life.
It doesn’t make sense to me, but it makes sense to other people.
It makes sense because it’s not a true rape story.
“Salon, by Ezra Weissmann “I was shocked by the Times article.
I know how a case like this can be sensationalized.
I don, too.
But it seems to me that the Times was so much more interested in the headline that it did not
