Washington Post bemoans own rape study where none were reported, ‘study must be wrong’

The Washington Post can’t believe their own rape study which found “…over 1,300 those colleges had zero reported rapes on campus in 2014.” In fact, the title from the June 15 articles reveals their bias: “Hundreds of colleges had zero rape reports in 2014. And that could be worrisome.”

Readers may be shocked by the data, but not as much as the Post, which quickly dismisses the findings, saying that “…sexual violence victims are often reluctant to step forward, and they want to hear more often from survivors.”

“We always operate under the assumption that zero does not really mean zero,” Cal State Long Beach spokesman Mike Uhlenkamp tells the Post of the ZERO reported rapes. “We realize that under-reporting will happen. It is a fact based on the national data. We’re going to try to do what we can to change that culture on our campus.”

The assumption is that the “estimated prevalence of sexual violence on campus” is accurate and the data is wrong.

“A Post-Kaiser Family Foundation poll last year found that one in five young women who attended college in a four-year span said they had been sexually assaulted during that time — a finding echoed in other surveys. But a far smaller share said they reported such incidents to school authorities,” the Post writes in an effort to swing the data to their biased opinion.

More from the article:

“It’s a harsh reality that a lot of parents and others in society don’t want to deal with: Sexual violence is on every campus,” said Laura L. Dunn, founder and executive director of the advocacy group SurvJustice. “Any time you have a zero, it is not an indicator of safety. It is an indicator of comfort in reporting.”

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) said there are two explanations for why schools would have no rape reports: “Either they don’t have an adequate reporting system … or they know about the rapes and are putting them under the rug.”

“When more are reported, we have to see that as a good thing initially,” said Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.). “Ideally, you want reports going up and incidents going down.”

The THIRD explanation is that there aren’t that many rapes. The hysteria is just that…hysteria. The famous Duke Lacrosse rape case proved to be bogus and theUVA frat had to sue Rolling Stone over their bogus story.

Here’s the dissenting voice: In an opinion piece this month in The Post, KC Johnson, a professor at Brooklyn College and the CUNY Graduate Center, and Stuart Taylor Jr., a scholar at the Brookings Institution, lamented “a myth that our universities are mired in an epidemic of sexual violence.” Johnson and Taylor wrote that campus activists, the Obama administration and many in the media have used “discredited surveys” to claim there are hundreds of thousands of campus sexual assaults annually.

Read on and The Post admits that massive online drive schools and commuter dominated institutes may have valid low numbers before offering some optimism and a full list of these ZERO rape colleges/schools.

“The low number in our annual Clery Act reports is a reflection of the positive atmosphere at our institution,” said Miami Dade spokesman Juan C. Mendieta. “It not a reflection of hesitation by our students to report an incident.”
