Review: The Anatomy of Silence | The Fountain
Not a week goes past without some sort of injustice hitting social media. It might not make the news, but in certain circles, it does the rounds. Whispered words were once the way women protected themselves from dangerous situations. Everyone knew about Harvey Weinstein before everyone knew about him because gossip was a weapon of defence. But now the world is more connected, and in some ways less beholden to laws which prevent journalists potentially printing something defamatory. The allegations towards R. Kelly and Bryan Singer began with similar whispers and are now unavoidable, the news free to report on what other people are saying online.
