Mom Knows Jack News

Someone accused the US president of rape. The media shrugged | Arwa Mahdawi | Opinion | The Guardian

I have so many feelings about this, but mostly I wish that Jean Carroll had come forward — absent book deal. Because now everything is all about how she is greedy and just trying to hype her book in the media using Trump for publicity. Which honestly, if Carroll didn’t know that this would happen — that her announcement would be received in this way because there is no quantifiable evidence — just her word which is canceled out by her book deal — then damn, we are fucked.

Why the relative quiet around E Jean Carroll’s allegation? Is it sexism? Outrage fatigue? Journalistic cowardice? All of the above?
