    New York Times reporter Jonathan Mahler on Monday covered the final damning discrediting of Rolling Stone magazine's story of a gang rape at the University of Virginia: "In Report on Rolling Stone, a Case Study in Failed Journalism." But Mahler skipped his own paper's disgraceful coverage of a previous campus rape hoax -- involving the Duke lacrosse team in 2006. [snip]

    In March 2006, Crystal Gail Mangum, a student at North Carolina Central University, who worked as a stripper and an escort, accused three members of the Duke lacrosse team — Reade Seligmann, Collin Finnerty, and David Evans — of raping her at an off-campus party. The case captivated the country, with the media breathlessly reporting the statements of prosecutor Mike Nifong, who was later fired, disbarred and imprisoned for 24 hours, and then those of the players' defense attorneys in a seemingly endless loop of contradictions. In April 2007, North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper said there was "no credible...

    On Nov. 22, with the national media focused on the 50th anniversary of former President John F. Kennedy's death, few noticed the story of a jury in North Carolina convicting Crystal Mangum of murder in the 2011 kitchen stabbing death of her boyfriend Reginald Daye. Why should that fact fixate the national media? On its own, it shouldn't. But in 2006 and 2007, Mangum's false charges of rape against three Duke University lacrosse players caused a national tsunami of media sensation, an angry wave of prejudiced coverage presuming the guilt of rich white college boys when being accused by an...

    A North Carolina judge has ordered three children to attend public schools this fall because the homeschooling their mother has provided over the last four years needs to be "challenged." The children, however, have tested above their grade levels – by as much as two years. The decision is raising eyebrows among homeschooling families, and one friend of the mother has launched a website to publicize the issue. The ruling was made by Judge Ned Mangum of Wake County, who was handling a divorce proceeding for Thomas and Venessa Mills.

    UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said that the Duke rape case fiasco was triggered by global climate change and that more such rapes may be on the horizon, in an article published Saturday. "The Duke rape case began as an ecological crisis, arising at least in part from climate change," Ban said in a Washington Post opinion column. UN statistics showed that rainfall had declined some 40 percent over the past two decades, he said, as a rise in temperatures disrupted the North Carolina rain season. "It is no accident that the rape in Duke erupted during the drought," Ban...

    One year after the infamous Duke lacrosse party, special prosecutors were the first officials to question Crystal Gail Mangum about her conflicting stories about being gang-raped, according to a report released Friday by the state attorney general. The prosecutors, Jim Coman and Mary Winstead, said they met a woman who showed up impaired on a cocktail of prescription drugs. She denied irrefutable facts and changed her story so often, even during a single interview, that the lawyers thought she was improvising. District Attorney Mike Nifong bet his career on Mangum and the case that besmeared Durham, Duke University and its...

    DURHAM, NC. Now that all charges in the infamous Duke alleged rape case have been dropped, and state officials have deemed the allegations by accuser Crystal Gail Mangum to be false, should she be prosecuted?

She surely filed a false rape report,” conservative columnist Michael Gaynor wrote this week. “Ignoring it would be wrong.” “Well, we have considered that,” NC Attorney General Roy Cooper told reporters April 11 when...

    Deeply troubled and unreliable. That's the overwhelming impression left by the life story of Crystal Gail Mangum, the woman who accused three Duke University lacrosse players of raping her a year ago. You don't have to be a psychiatrist to reach that conclusion, or even a district attorney, who, after all, needs to be able to assess the reliability of a complaining witness well enough to judge the weight of the accusation. Mike Nifong, Durham's district attorney, found himself having to make that judgment about Mangum, and the public has a right to be disappointed in how badly he apparently...
