Trial by Twitter & American-Sex-Scandal Politics as Usual

Trial by Twitter & American-Sex-Scandal Politics as Usual

The above (reprinted below) is commentary on recent attacks to defame Wikileaks’ Mr. Assange and journalist Keith Olbermann, both important contributors to US citizens’ information networks. Please feel welcome to share your views.

“I am responding here to the recent Tweet-hiatus of a journalist assailed on Twitter after defending Assange from political attacks for being a rapist. Woe. Could it be true?!

“3 of 5 women has been raped in America. While this is sad stuff (and I speak as one who has been raped, thanks), the Assange attack is too American-sex-scandal politics as usual to interest me. I am amazed at the sophistication level of the Twitterers who bit, and had the gall to decide to censor a journalist for supporting the political actions of a now-famous web activist.

“Trial by Twitter. Wow!”
