One of the most bizarre and persistent delusions created by the campaign of lies being spread by the Alexandria Goddard / Anonymous / LocalLeaks fable machine is the idea that the infamous video of Michael Nodianos is somehow a “confession” or that it has any evidentiary value whatsoever in the Steubenville rape case.
This notion was thoroughly laid to rest by the prosecution during yesterday’s hearing in Steubenville, which I attended. During discussion with the judge about the Nodianos video, one of the attorneys for the state of Ohio – remember, the people were making the case FOR the alleged victim – describe the video as inadmissible and irrelevant.
It’s a complete repudiation for anybody trying to claim that the crude jokes and outrageous statements made by Mr. Nodianos have a bearing on the legal case. They have none. Continuing to try to make that case does nothing whatsoever to help the alleged victim
