WND Rewords Headline To Imply Guilt Ahead of Trial

I really can’t imagine why WND (formerly WorldNetDaily) felt the need to rewrite this headline from MediaTrackers to minimise the “alleged” detail

And yes, the claim that the nephew was “brought… to the US to kill her” is also part of what’s “alleged”, despite the deliberate and bad faith attempt by WND to obscure that this has not been established as fact.

The story concerns a Professor Eunjung An, who claims that her colleague Professor Ali Yedes had said to her that “in his culture, he could have had the female Department Chair [i.e. An] killed because of his perceived mistreatment by her in postponing his tenure.” Also, An says that “Yedes told another professor that he had “brought his nephew to the United States on a student visa some time in the past few years, specifically to ‘stab and kill someone from his department,’ in particular a French professor who is Asian.” According to the report:

An’s request for a jury trial has been granted, and the case has been assigned to Lorain County Common Pleas Court Judge James L. Miraldi. Oberlin College applied for an extension to respond last week, and must submit its reply to the complaint by May 8.

It looks like WND has already decided what the verdict is going to be.
