The media tells stories, and "stories help us make sense of the world," but too often serve to validate our own perceptions, "reinforc[ing] the status quo, serving particular interests without appearing to do so"

"The Hunting Ground” filmmakers on why sexual assault is treated differently from other crimes: “Were you drunk when you claim the television was stolen?”

See:

Ziering: We have something up on our website that refutes [the Harvard professors’] allegations point by point.

Dick: Another aspect that’s shocking about the Harvard Law professors’ statement is they make no mention at all of the fact that these assaults have been going on on their campus for decades. In fact, an Association of American Universities study recently came out that showed approximately 30 percent of women are sexually assaulted at Harvard.

Ziering: They’re claiming they’re speaking on the side of justice, and yet where’s the justice for all these women who have experienced a felony on their campus? I also just want to say their letter came out right before our CNN airing. Our film has been out since January, and so one wonders, if they were so concerned about injustice, wouldn’t they have gotten in touch with the public or us a little sooner and asked us about what they claim are our inaccuracies? The film has withstood thorough and extensive vetting and there’s been no challenge to it, and it’s about to show now on CNN, and suddenly they are expressing concern?

...
And esp. at the end - the section beginning:

There’s one last thing I’d like to add. It’s important for people to realize this ...

CNN's 'The Hunting Ground' Scrutinized For Portrayal Of Campus Sexual Assault

CNN's documentary The Hunting Ground makes the case that universities are letting rapists walk free and has come under withering attack for ignoring facts that contradict the film's claims.

Update I
UCB, UCD, UCLA, UCSD, UCSB - all come up with student and parent accounts in it...

There also was a discussion with reporters, legal experts. Only one univ president agreed to comment or participate in the discussion that followed after the airing of the film. That likely means Napolitano, Dirks etc declined

In the discussion portion: The filmmakers came on in the final segment and the comment that really stood out was one in response to any law faculty  criticism, to which Ziering responded by asking  a question for the faculty, it went something like: Where have the law faculty been during all these many, many years/decades of failure to properly address these higher ed procedural issues as they continually surface/d?
(a question frequently pondered here)
