A lawyer for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston urged CNN not to air the documentary about college campus sexual assault, “The Hunting Ground,” but the network will on Sunday, November 22 at 8pm. The documentary features an interview with Erica Kinsman who accused Winston of sexual assault in 2012 when he was a quarterback at Florida State University. The case was reportedly investigated by the Tallahassee police and Winston was not charged. According to The New York Times, "there was virtually no investigation at all, either by the police or the university."
A CNN spokeswoman said: “CNN is proud to provide a platform for a film that has undeniably played a significant role in advancing the national conversation about sexual assault on college campuses.” She added: “We are confident that both the film and our extensive associated coverage give this important issue the full and fair treatment it deserves.”
