George Will's Rape Column Was Edited By A Bunch Of Men


Shearer said Thursday that the editorial team had discussed the piece's content at length with Will before it was published, Wemple reported.

"Let’s say we had a lot of discussion about it with George and he knew what he wanted to say,” he said then. “These days a lot of people are going to read into something what they want to read into it.”

Will's column was dropped by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, one of his 476 syndicated clients, after the controversy.
