Compare and contrast

In addition to Katherine Kersten’s column on Keith Ellison’s February 2000 speech supporting Kathleen Soliah/Sara Jane Olson, today’s Star Tribune also carries Rochelle Olson’s story on the woman charging Keith Ellison with assault. It provides a striking contrast with Olson’s story on Alan Fine’s expunged 1995 arrest. Olson leaves no doubt that Ellison’s accuser has serious issues of credibility. As I pointed out in “Errors and omissions,” in her story on Fine’s exupnged 1995 arrest, Olson (and Paul McEnroe) conveniently left out all the comparable evidence regarding Fine’s accuser.
