The media is not the place to seek justice
Am I the only one who is disgusted by the new blood sport we see in the media? Recently, several actors, politicians, entertainers, etc., formally held in high regard, have had their careers or body of work totally trashed, without their day in court. Day after day it seems that a new victim gets caught up in this righteous witch hunt that is destroying people’s lives. Whatever happened to due process, or are our courts now that of public opinion?
As a society are we really that angry and unforgiving, or is this just our latest form of entertainment? I believe that trashing someone’s lifetime achievements or body of good work, unless those achievements were the direct result of their criminal actions, is wrong-headed. By no means am I suggesting that these crimes, some horrific, go unpunished. Victims are angry, I get that, but the media is not the place to seek justice.
