Skip to comments.Ken Burns: Duke Lacrosse Team 'Mildly Inconvenienced' by False Rape Charges
Posted on 12/13/2012 4:28:32 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Documentary filmmaker Ken Burns understands the horrors faced by five New York City teens unfairly charged with rape back in 1989.
"The Central Park Five," the new documentary co-directed by Burns on the subject, lets the five victims recall that tumultuous time in their lives and documents just how much the false charges crushed their youth.
Yet Burns seems indifferent to another case in which three young men were unfairly accused of rape and waited 15 months to have their names cleared.
Burns brought up the 2006 Duke Lacrosse case, in which three students were accused of sexually assaulting a stripper, during an interview with The Phoenix in Boston...

There was a time I respected Burns’ work. No longer. He’s a f***ing liberal idiot.
Burns has always been a lefty.
The Phoenix is well known as an ultra-left organ (BTW, it is based in Boston, not Phoenix, AZ). It's where none other than Sid ("Sid Vicious") Blumenthal (remember him from the Clinton years?) got his start in "journalism."
Burns' remarks on the Duke lacrosse players are typical of the hatred for white males often expressed in lefty MSM narratives - and in the legal process itself in many instances.
Any truth to the rumor that Ken Burns is a pedophile? I don’t believe it and I hope he isn’t inconvenienced defending his good name.
Only if you can mix in some pretty scenery at sunset with some pleasant music while reading old quotes in a soothing, monotone voice.
And if you could make every second of your documentary about race, regardless of the actual topic, that’d be good too.
BINGO!.....You Nailed it!...”Social” Justice is but Communism under a new name.......
And he being a white male and all ...
It is important to recognize exactly what Burns objects to about the Duke Lacrosse players. He tells us: they are (1) rich, (2) white, and (3) boys. To Burns that's their real crime, that's why it should not matter that the state came close to destroying three young lives. To Burns, rich + white + boys = scum.
It's funny how leftists often become exactly what they claim to despise. Burns is just a racist, sexist hatemonger. He's the real thing.
Since Burns himself is an aging rich white boy, you have to wonder what he sees when he looks in the mirror.
You are kidding, but that video is funnier than anything Burns ever did.
I despise this scumbag blowhard.
His heavily vaunted documentary series are SO overrated. Boring, morose, heavy helping of heartburn for blacks. Every single one is the same formula.
