Stunned that that New York Review of Books would commision Jian Ghomeshi for a cover story. Ghomeshi faced trial for 4 counts of sexual assault and 20+ women come forward w/ accounts of abuse, forcing a reckoning w/in Canadian music and media bc EVERYONE KNEW HE WAS A CREEP.
Editorially speaking, what is the special knowledge or skill or original tale Jian Ghomeshi has to tell or report that makes him only one New York Review of Books could call for this?
"Asked about the case in a television interview, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau refused to comment but when asked about worries that the verdict may discourage survivors from coming forward in the future" theguardian.com/world/2016/mar…
Here's what life has been like for one of the women who testified in the trial and the PTSD and fallout since: macleans.ca/society/lucy-d…
Some of the other women who testified felt revictimized by a book on the trial: nowtoronto.com/news/jian-ghom…
Just in case anyone didn't remember why, or is curious why this is a big fucking deal. My empathy and solidarity is with the many women that came forward, those that testified, and the women who were hurt by him and have remained quiet.
