Jackson Hole Woman

The News&Guide’s Allie Gross, Melissa Cassutt, Emily Mieure and Kylie Mohr and KHOL’s Meg Daly

Four of us at the News&Guide worked on the “Survivors Speak” package for several months, relying on six brave women and several expert sources to pull it together.

But we know this is just one aspect of a multifaceted issue. We know there is more to this conversation.

We want to extend an invitation to every member of the community — every age, every gender, every race. Help us keep this conversation going. Help us explore stories that don’t just define the problem but also examine solutions.

Four News&Guide journalists have partnered with Meg Daly, KHOL community affairs director, to host open-studio hours in the KHOL studio in the next two weeks. There are three two-hour slots open. Swing by whenever is convenient. We won’t be live, but we will be recording.

Meg will be at all of them; the rest of us will cycle through different days.

Speak to us on the record or on background. Often those terms are confused, so let us explain: On the record means you are identified, and we will attribute what you say to you, possibly in future stories. On background means we know who you are and we’re collecting information as a jumping-off point for future reporting, but we won’t identify you as the person who gave it to us.

As an example, all of the women in “Survivors Speak” were on the record.

We are all part of the solution. We need your help to explore a path forward.

Come talk to us:

• noon-2 p.m. Friday, Oct. 19

• 5-7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 25

• noon-2 p.m. Friday, Oct. 26

Can’t make it? Email or call. Thank you for sharing your voices.

Judge Kavanaugh is guilty but Bill Clinton is innocent after paying Paula Jones almost a million dollars? Being a victim today is a way to get famous whether it's true of not. How come Kavanaugh was found not guilty by the FBI and the lady didn't get prosecuted for filing a false claim? Perjury is nonexistent in today's world of Gotcha politics! Liberal victimhood is alive and well. That is really going to harm true victims because of everyone crying wolf. God Help Us.

He was not found not guilty by the FBI. What they found in a limited one week investigation didn't convince the people who nominated and confirmed him that he shouldn't be on the supreme court. The FBI is an investigative agency, not a jury. Yes, Clinton was guilty of several things. Speaking of Clintons, where was all the outrage over "innocent until proven guilty" when all the same folks supporting Kavanaugh were chanting "lock her up"?

Clinton paid Paula Jones almost one million dollars. I call that guilty, don’t you? If you think Hilary is innocent, you are part of the problem.

Sam Campbell

As I said, yes Bill Clinton was guilty of multiple things. Your logic makes no sense- Kavanaugh is proven innocent by a limited short term investigation, yet years of investigations and hearings into HRC result in no indictments and she's guilty? I can't say I'm a big fan of Hillary's, and I hope she fades from politics because she DOES have a questionable past, and I don't generally like the "power families" such as the Clintons, Kennedys, or Bushes. I just find the double standard on guilt vs innocence to be quite hypocritical. I would also argue there should be a much higher standard for a SCJ compared to elected office, just based on the fact that it is quite possibly the hardest job on the planet to get fired from.

Can you say Benghazi? 30,000 e-mails destroyed?
Me Campbell, I think we agree, it’s the process that stinks. My biggest issue is that “They” are above the law and that is going to be very hard to change. You and I would be in jail.

The article gave an appearance of politics and not justice. The timing of it's writing only reinforced that opinion.

Ken Chison

It will be interesting to see how long it takes to turn this into a bunch of hearsay and gripes against our President and his administration. I really hope this doesnt turn into a political platform with the victims being exploited and then kicked to the curb.
