This was once a serious country with serious newspapers, back in the day when they were edited by serious editors and a man had the right to confront an accuser before she was allowed to destroy his reputation, career and even his life.
Herman Cain doesn’t look like Jack the Ripper, but Scotland Yard never pursued Mr. Ripper with the passion of the newspapers and television networks so hot after Mr. Cain. He may be guilty of whatever it is that he is accused of – so far little more than a wink, a predatory smile or even a suggestive smirk. Or he may not be guilty. But in the wonderland of Washington journalism, we demand the verdict first and only then the evidence (if any).
“Sexual harassment” has been established as a crime that only the accuser is entitled to define, and then at her attorney’s convenience. The accused is not necessarily entitled to know who accuses him or even to know what he is accused of doing. The crime is so heinous that the mere accusation is enough to convict. Why waste time on evidence?
