It appears that FoxNews is also going to cover the hearing live, they just showed a live shot from inside the room where the hearing is being held.

I am not getting it on Fox or on WRAL. Did Nifong hearing start? Was it 4 or 4:30pm?

Thanks mod, the last link is working.

Wow, I am doing something that I never thought I would do. Listening to legalese and actually enjoying it! This is a brand new experience for me. So far, I like the judge. I would not want to cross him.

From what I just watched off of the wral it sounds as if the motion to dismiss is going to be denied.

So to Reade Seligmann, Collin Finnerty and David Evans, the three Duke lacrosse players whose lives were mangled by an unsupported rape accusation, I say two of the hardest words in the English language:

I'm sorry.

It's not enough, and I won't pretend that it is. For the last year, your lives and those of your families have been more difficult than any of us can possibly imagine. I'll never know what it was like walking around normal society labeled a rapist. I'll never know what it's like to lose everything -- your school, your program and your life -- because of one unproven accusation.

(snip)

Not that this is a contest to see who was wronged the most, but the Rutgers women's basketball team at least received justice, because Imus was suspended and dropped by MSNBC, which simulcasts his morning show. Plenty of people are outraged on their behalf.

But who is outraged on your behalf? What justice will you receive? Will the same networks that willingly aided in destroying your reputations now give you airtime to vent your frustrations? Will Jesse Jackson now offer the three of you a free scholarship like he did the "victim," since he helped assist in your battered reputation?

(snip)

I can't deny that your race, gender and class have everything to do with how you were treated then and how you are treated now. Some people believe white men are exempt from sympathy and incapable of being maligned, so they will not swallow their pride and offer you the decency you should have received in the first place. Yes, you made an unwise decision to entertain strippers at a residence, but that just makes you guilty of being like 90 percent of college males.

It sounds like that. That's what we were hoping for.

Nifong's lawyers have just finished and now that state is speaking. She sounds like she has hit the nail on the head.

Nifong's lawyers sounded stupid and he was tripping over his own words.

On the Big Story on Fox they had the winners and losers of the week. Collin, David and Reade were voted the top WINNERS OF THE WEEK. smile.gif

Nifong was in second place for the LOSER of the week.

I think the earlier analysis of Brodhead's performance being based on his background is nice. BUT there are some very strong signs that Board Chairman Steel (and maybe others on the boad of trustees) controlled the University's response. Their view was to protect Duke, even if innocent men went to jail. When their first instincts were quickly swamped by events and information, they did not correct course or do the right thing. That strong belief that Duke is more important than one or more individuals, seasoned with a healthy dose of ego, paralyzed them on the prior flawed course. Great men and institutions may have many virtues, but if courage is not among them, the sun is setting on their greatness.

Jim, I could not agree more. It will be interesting to see what, if anything, they will do to redeem themselves. What can they do?

Good news continue. I just watched a report on Fox saying Nifong's motion to dismiss was denied. That is great. Nifong deserves every bad thing that happens to him.
