Lena Dunham releases statement about sexual abuse allegations

In response to some reviews of Lena Dunham’s new book, Not That Kind of Girl, that accuse the author of admitting to sexual abuse, the author has released a statement to Time.

Articles from National Review and Truth Revolt cited passages of Dunham’s book and accused her of admitting to sexually abusing her younger sister as a child.

Dunham originally took to Twitter over the weekend to speak out against the claims. Now, she has given an official statement about the matter speaking about her dismay over the interpretations made about her book. In his original story, National Review‘s Kevin D. Williamson referenced a passage about a childhood interaction between Dunham and her sister Grace and stated that he believed there is “no non-horrific interpretation of this episode.”

Read Dunham’s full statement on Time, in which she states she does “not condone any kind of abuse under any circumstances,” and that anything written about Dunham’s sister was written with her approval.


Fareed Zakaria suspension lifted by CNN, Time

All is forgiven for Time magazine writer and CNN host Fareed Zakaria, who last week was suspended by both outlets for apparent plagiarism.
CNN said Thursday that Zakaria’s weekly GPS public affairs program returns to the air Aug. 26. Time said in a separate statement that Zakaria’s column would resume with the magazine’s Sept. 7 issue.

Zakaria was suspended by both outlets last Friday for lifting several paragraphs from a New Yorker magazine essay for his use in a recent Time column. A version of that column, which examined gun control, was subsequently posted on CNN’s website.Zakaria apologized, acknowledging a “terrible mistake.”
CNN and Time said Thursday that each had conducted a thorough review and found Zakaria’s recent “journalistic lapse” to be an isolated incident.
