Retro Report Repeats Media Myth on the McMartin Preschool case

March 27, 2014
Retro Report recently did a story about the McMartin Preschool case in California, the subject of a detailed and complicated chapter in my forthcoming book. Sadly, the organization devoted to “re-examining” media stories told the same extreme, black-and-white version of the case that has persisted for almost 25 years. I have a post in today’s  Oxford University Press blog taking Retro Report to task for repeating the media myth that the case was “all a witch-hunt.”  Important evidence in the case proves that Retro Report got it wrong. [Update: that post was moved to this site; see above.]
