Which media source has the real story?

By Patricia L Johnson

This morning we’re going to be given a choice on the Strauss-Kahn story. The Wall Street Journal is reporting DNA found on the chambermaid’s clothing matched Strauss-Kahn DNA, while Al Jazeera is saying just the opposite, that the story reported by the Wall Street Journal is incorrect, because New York police haven’t yet released DNA findings.

The Wall Street Journal has a huge following which means the story that is going to be reported all over the world is the story the DNA matched, but did it?

And, if it did what does that prove?

How difficult is it for a hotel chambermaid to obtain DNA and transfer to her own clothing? Not difficult at all. I’m not suggesting that’s what happened in this particular instance, but it’s certainly something to think about.

This isn’t an ordinary case of alleged rape. This is a case of alleged rape against the individual that was in charge of the IMF and, more than likely, would have been the next President of France. When you’re talking about a person of that stature, you have to look beyond the obvious, and beyond what is being reported.
