Via Instapundit, a vanishing story.
A noose was found at Duke.
Duke promised to find out who did it.
Duke found the person.
The noose was discovered about 2 a.m. Wednesday morning. By Thursday afternoon, the university had collected enough evidence about who did it that officials were able to announce that a student had been identified and had admitted to the act.
Citing confidentiality issues, the university refused to identify who the student was, other than to say the student was no longer on campus. Not everyone is buying that "confidentiality" line. But, notably, every major national news outlet that is no longer publishing "Duke noose" stories -- which includes, basically, every national news outlet -- seems to be accepting the university's rationale for silence.
