Ron,

Writing "news" before the "story" occurs is actually creating fiction. In this case, the news is that the reduced award was overturned, not that the rape occured. Where FoxNews made a mistake is in their misleading headline. They implied that the award reduction was the news, not the overturning of that decision.

Your comments seem to me, also, to imply that you don't care about rape victims or poor court decisions.

i guess that you just couldn't take me at my word when i said this then.

i don't know how me pointing out in my first post that the decision that had the first couple posters up in arms was actually moot implied anything other than me observing that it was moot.

on the contrary, pointing out that it was moot due to an appeal is actually implying the unlikelihood of it occurring again due to precedent if anything.

Maybe others will take you at your word when you start doing the same.

No, actually, when I opened this thread, it only showed the first page, not the next two. After I posted that and the thread recycled it was suddenly 3 pages.

I thought you were talking about your other posts that seemed to indicate you don't really care about the decision, etc., but saying look what you really meant.

Perhaps other posters are looking at the "real" intent of your post, as you say you do.

yes ron I do, but the fact that they made the decision in the first place it what counts. _________________________

Emphasis added by me for the purpose of straightening you out!

In spite of KMS and myself pointing this out clearly and succintly, you just refused to acknowledge why this was therefore newsworthy.

Capiche?

with the precedent generated on appeal, how relevant is "the decision in the first place" to the victim and to future victims?

actually, the story was at one time newsworthy and the title reflected that...too bad the story didn't support the headline.
