    News watch 16 and responsible reporting? .. “alleged victim”… holy crap… I’m impressed. It’s not that I do not advocate woman’s rights, I just believe in everyone’s rights and believing in two sides to a story. sometimes there are false reports, sometimes there are not. This is the news watch 16 I am not used to. Congrats on actual reporting.
