As EW worked on its latest story on the issue of rape on the University of Oregon campus, HBO’s Vice contacted us for permission to use our cover image from last year’s story on sexual assault, created by our own Trask Bedortha. If you watch the intro sequence you will see EW up there with Time Magazine.
HBO’s preview doesn’t show the cover but it gives you the gist of this important issue that is not going away.
The EW story, Rape U, delves into several sexual assault cases on the University of Oregon campus and what is — or is not — being done; Vice mentions the UO only in passing.
Our May 28 story, “Dragged Through the Mud,” shows the UO still has far to go, and reveals the UO has not once, but at least twice taken a student’s mental health counseling records.
The Oregonian picked up that aspect of the story, and today Oregon Gov. Kate Brown signed into law a bill that would prevent the release of those records in the future.
