NPR Calls “Mattress Girl” Accuser Emma Sulkowicz a ‘Survivor’

NPR Calls “Mattress Girl” Accuser Emma Sulkowicz a ‘Survivor’

Keeping the narrative alive…

Apparently, no one at NPR knows that Columbia just settled with the student she accused.

The College Fix reports:

NPR calls fake rape accuser Emma Sulkowicz a ‘survivor,’ hides that she is ‘Mattress Girl’

National Public Radio isn’t interested in fair reporting when it comes to sexual assault.

That’s made plain by a segment on the “restorative justice” approach to campus sexual assault that aired Tuesday afternoon on All Things Considered, which bafflingly deprived its audience the most newsworthy trait of one of its interviewees.

Reporter Tovia Smith quotes as a “survivor” the Columbia University graduate Emma Sulkowicz, who lost her rape case against fellow student Paul Nungesser in a campus adjudication based on the extremely low “more likely than not” evidence standard.

Sulkowicz and her activist friends harassed Nungesser, a foreign student, for years through her “Carry that Weight” art project, in which she pledged to lug a mattress around campus until Columbia punished Nungesser, whom it had explicitly exonerated of any wrongdoing.

By that they mean simply that she isn’t dead yet.

We are all survivors.

Well, NPR did add a “clarification” to their online article. Apparently the Ombudsman got an earful.

It’s all about narrative! It doesn’t even have to be close to true, just sounds like it might be true someday, in an alternate universe, maybe, if you really stretch truth to be unrecognizable, maybe, just maybe…
