Duke Case: Monday Linkfest

> So what's the scoop on this fracas in Raleigh involving a couple of Durham investigators who worked the Duke case? John in Carolina wonders what's up:

Durham City Police officers are accused of involvement in an alleged assault outside a Raleigh sports bar just before midnight Thursday....

So why, more than 60 hours after the alleged assault, are we being told there’s no police report? Why aren’t news organizations telling readers how unusual that is? Why aren’t news organizations demanding to know why there's no police report?

> John also continues to wonder what's up with N&O’s exec editor for news, Melanie Sill? She remains in ghost mode regarding the Duke story.

> Michael Gaynor goes over some of the reasons Collin Finnerty was screwed over by Judge John Bayly Jr. in Washington, D.C. and the latest hijinks and goings on in Durham.

> Mr. Gaynor also goes over legal reviews of Nifong's ethical and professional handling of the Duke case. Needless to say, it's not a pretty picture.

> USA Today takes another look at new Duke lacrosse coach, John Danowski.

> Kim Roberts, the second dancer at the Duke lacrosse party will be in court on Monday regarding a parole violation.

> Robert KC Johnson looks at a disturbing column, penned by Bob Ashley, the editor of the Durham Herald-Sun and reviews some other bizarre journalistic short circuits.

Where did that good old school journalism mentality of being cynical watchdogs of the establishment go? Where do we find new Ben Bradlee's, Bob Woodward's, and Carl Bernstein's. Why are today's journalists so willing to be passive media lapdogs?
