Duke lacrosse: an interesting media double standard

The cable yakkers have had a field day bashing the DA in Boulder for her recent actions in the Jon Benet Ramsey murder case. For over a year they have criticized Aruban authorities in the Natalie Holloway case. Yet they are oddly restrained when it comes to the Durham DA.

No one says "Aruba must have some good reason to release Joren van der Sloot". Yet it is a mantra on cable that "Nifong must have something" to go forward in the teeth of overwhelming scientific evidence.

All one has to do is read Robert KC Johnson blog to see how poorly Durham has handled the investigation. So why are the blowhards so reluctant to state the obvious?
