A(Dec. 15) -- Heidi Jones, a weather anchor for ABC's New York City affiliate and an occasional forecaster on "Good Morning America," was suspended today after being arrested for allegedly lying to police about being sexually assaulted.

The WABC-TV weather anchor told police last month that a Hispanic man tried to rape her while she was jogging in Central Park on Sept. 24. But Jones has since admitted making the whole thing up, police told AOL News today. WABC-TV announced the suspension today during a noon broadcast.

Remember the "Run away bride?" Wonder if this gal will get as much media attention for her lies? Nah, probably not - she is an ABC employee, a "journalist." Their faults and crimes are overlooked from scrutiny. That's only for the public.

I’m trying hard to figure out why a person would do such a thing.

I’ve heard she’s probably going to be fired. The police suspected something didn’t add up because she was vague about a lot of details.

If she wanted to be famous so badly, she should have cut a porno tape instead.

It's been done before.

They probably considered it a hate crime.

"Ms. Jones has had a distinguished career as a broadcast journalist and urges all concerned to refrain from jumping to conclusions about the unproven charges against her being discussed in the press," [her attorney] told the New York Daily News in a statement.

Jones has since admitted making the whole thing up, police told AOL News today

OK, I suppose it IS unproven that she confessed to making it up, Mr. attorney.

Yeah, right.

"allegedly lying to police about being sexually assaulted. "

Shouldn't that say

"for lying to police about being allegedly sexually assaulted."

Believe it or not, this isn’t uncommon. Anytime I read of the story of the “random sexual assault” in the Wal-Mart parking lot or even in the home, I get suspicious. Not that those things don’t happen, but around here it seems like 50% of the “victims” later recant and say it was made up.

No, I don’t know why. My guess is that its some kind of cry for attention.

I guess the police do a good job, but isn’t it odd to both make this up AND then admit it? Apparently she said it was an attempt so you’d think saying someone tried to attack you is a story you can stick with.

Certainly sobering reminder that every heartfelt story you read about is not necessarily true.

Such a pretty girl who seemingly had a bright future ahead of her. I’m shocked and saddened that she had to resort to something like this for whatever the reason. If it’s attention she was seeking, she now has it in spades!

Especially rape stories. Even Allan Dershowitz has suggested up to 10 % of those reported are pure fiction.

I know a lawyer who picked up a gorgeous young woman at the Christmas party, had sex in his apartment, he left the room for a minute and she disappeared. He’s arrested for rape and was probably destined for ruination and jail, until she left a crying message on his answering machine that she “had to” accuse him in order to explain to her boyfriend why she was missing. Nice huh? Her punishment? Absolutely zero, kept her job at the firm.

This kind of crap always makes me really mad, because there are so many REAL rapes happening, and the victims are all too often not taken seriously. Publicity stunts like this one only make it worse.
Not to mention the police department resources being misused to prop up the ego of this stupid rhymes-with-witch.

I say, fire her, make her pay all costs associated with the investigation into her claim, and throw the book at her. Jail time would be nice, too!
Merry Christmas!!!

Feminazis have been saying “women don’t lie about rape.”

Will they condemn her? Of course not.

Will Hispanic groups condemn her? Probably, but they are lower down the scale of victimhood, several rungs down under “feminazism.”
