It’s ‘Like a Digital Stoning’—Alec Klein on Cancel Culture & #MeToo | American Thought Leaders

The #MeToo movement exposed long-hidden abuses by powerful individuals in Hollywood and beyond, and brought sexual violence to the forefront of national discussion. But there was also another side of #MeToo, a movement that, at its height, encouraged people to “believe all women”—regardless of the merits of their accusations. Among the accused in the #MeToo movement is Alec Klein, a former Washington Post reporter and professor at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism. He was accused of sexual misconduct by several students and staffers. Klein would become one among the many who were found guilty not by a court of law—but in the dubious court of cancel culture. He is the author of “Aftermath: When It Felt Like Life Was Over.”
