The media does tend to publish the allegation on 1A and bury the acquittal on an inside page. But it also exonerates innocent people convicted by judges and juries. It clears the names of people unjustly accused. It exposes corruption by police and overzealous prosecutors. It tells the story of crime victims. We know the story of Richard Jewell’s innocence because the media reported it. To say that the media “always presumes guilt” is to commit the very act you’re trying to condemn.
