Jan 28 - Washington Post Suspends Reporter After Kobe Tweet

The Washington Post has placed a political reporter on administrative leave after she tweeted a link to a story about r*pe allegations against NBA superstar Kobe Bryant, who was k*lled Sunday. Dozens of journalists at the newspaper criticized the decision.

Reporter Felicia Sonmez's tweet Sunday, amid widespread public mourning over Bryant's death in a helicopter crash, drew considerable backlash on social media. The Post reported that Somnez received threats of death and r*pe and had to move to a hotel after her home address was published online.

The Post said Somnez deleted the original tweet at the request of a managing editor. She also received an email from executive editor Marty Baron saying: “A real lack of judgment to tweet this. Please stop. You’re hurting this institution by doing this.” Somnez shared the email with an a*sociated Press reporter.

The Post said Somnez had been placed on paid leave while newsroom managers look into the episode. A spokeswoman for the newspaper did not respond to questions about Baron’s role.

Members of the Washington Post Newspaper Guild protested Somnez's suspension. They also noted that Somnez had “received an onslaught of violent messages” and “has gotten insufficient guidance from the Post on how to protect herself.”

“We understand the hours after Bryant’s death Sunday were a fraught time to share reporting about past accusations of s*xual a*sault,” Guild members wrote. "The loss of such a beloved figure, and of so many other lives, is a tragedy. But we believe it is our responsibility as a news organization to tell the public the whole truth as we know it — about figures and institutions both popular and unpopular, at moments timely and untimely.

Somnez's controversial tweet linked to a 2016 Daily Beast story titled “Kobe Bryant’s Disturbing r*pe Case: The DNA Evidence, the Accuser’s Story, and the Half-Confession.”

Bryant was accused in 2003 of raping a 19-year-old employee at a Colorado resort. He said the two had consensual s*x, and prosecutors later dropped the s*xual a*sault charge at the request of the accuser. The woman filed a civil suit against Bryant that was settled out of court.

These people never stop.
Even when found not guilty or the case is over or settled, they still never let up.

Is there no redemption in life?

These women getting real vocal off a lie. They don't keep that same energy when men get falsely accused of r*pe and get fired/lose opportunities. I say fire this chick for her irresponsible reporting. You can get suspended and come back in a couple of months

Even if the batch bragged about fu*king Kobe three days before she threw up charges on him and she had like five other men semen in her panties. That dusty bi*ch thought she was slick.

I stumbled upon one of those b-b-but what about the r*pe tweets and thought..



His courtroom statement isn't a good look but damn... Can anybody EVER recover from a life error, or are you Dead Robber like 20 years after you committed armed robbery and changed your life?



And what about her life? What if she had a stint on heroine or being a h0e... She wants her memory to be "Here Lies Drugged Skeezer' 20 years after she changed her life?
