Reporting Feels Out of the Question, Until it Doesn't | David Olimpio
A piece on reporting (or not). "I can imagine the kind of traumatic violation of privacy that would result from outing somebody, especially when the stakes are so high, like they are with a Supreme Court nomination and it makes me appreciate what Ford has done even more. I can imagine what it would feel like to hear people doubt you, or worse, to pretend they believe you, but then suggest you might be "mistaken" about the details. I've imagined it all week. It would be retraumatizing. It would be absolutely horrible. It would make you want to spit venom and scream and shake with anger. It's a testament to Blasey Ford's strength that she remained composed. It's indictment on Kavanaugh's character that he didn't."
