I think <> is either disingenuous or incompetent, 
since it manages to say nothing about who she is (the page "Who is 
Lori?" is opaque and virtually meaningless), and raises more 
questions than it answers. It says that she was a "young reporter" 
but not for whom. It says the she "attended the Massachusetts 
Institute of Technology" -- a rather ambiguous statement: did she 
graduate? did she matriculate as an undergrad or just attend some 
courses -- what does going to MIT have to do innocence?

When I see this kind of smoke-screen/weasel-worded broadside, it 
raises my suspicions and reduces my confidence in the truth of what 
is being said.
