Media outlets give celebs like Roman Polanski and R. Kelly adoring coverage, and ignore rape allegations

Last week, the Village Voice ran an explosive Q&A between Jessica Hopper and journalist Jim DeRogatis, the Chicago Sun-Times reporter who, with courts reporter Abdon Pallasch, broke the story about the R&B star’s alleged pedophilia in December, 2000. Headlined “Read the ‘Stomach-Churning’ Sexual Assault Accusations Against R. Kelly in Full,” the Q&A offered a level of disturbing detail about these alleged crimes that most R. Kelly fans have never heard before, because DeRogatis’ decade of dogged reporting never became a trend story.

His pieces were big news in Chicago, even becoming central to the child pornography case against Kelly, but have been generally ignored or excused by the national entertainment press. Introducing the story, Hopper writes, “DeRogatis offered to give me access to every file and transcript he has collected in reporting this story — as he has to other reporters and journalists, none of whom has ever looked into the matter, thus relegating it to one man’s personal crusade. I thought that last fact merited a public conversation about why.” And so the Voice Q&A concluded with an archive of police and court documents and Lexis-Nexis copies of the Sun-Times’ extensive, decade-plus investigation into allegations that Kelly abused of under-aged Black girls, making this evidence public on a mass scale for the first time – In Salon.com
