Nifong Releases Email to Newsweek
But of course we don't get to read
it for ourselves but instead get the summary."What has surprised me is the utter lack of any degree of skepticism on the part of the national media with respect to the claims of the defense attorneys, many of which are misleading and some of which are absolutely false," he writes in the e-mail.
He continues to say that some of the defense claims are misleading and that the job of defense attorneys is to create reasonable doubt. He suggests defense attorneys might deliberately leave out facts and hints at how the defense might make some documents public record.
"Is anyone surprised that the defense attorneys are spinning this case in such a way that things do not look good for the prosecution?" he asks.
No. Is there any surprise that the media were spinning the case in your favor when you were leaking details to them?
Looking a couple moves down the road, Nifong sure seems in trouble. But he may be able to ride it out with no trial until after the election.
