Updates in #GhomeshiGate

Oct 31, 2014

We're several days into this story, but it only gains  steam every day. Writing for HuffPost Canada, a lawyer and author explains why she can't remain silent about what Jian Ghomeshi did to her (which has been shared a very telling 28,165 times as of this moment). Eater's Montreal Editor Ian Harrison reflects, simply, "So my new hero is @RevaSeth."

Next, speaking anonymously, Jian Ghomeshi's co-worker offers her own story to the National Post, earning its own 1500+ shares while revealing CBC may have tried to sweep her fears under a rug. "If this is true, the Jian Ghomeshi-CBC scandal has some similar overtones to the Jimmy Savile-BBC scandal," columnist Michael Taube realizes. Later, Al-Monitor's Laura Rozen notices, "Nat'l Post seems to have removed name of @CBCRadioQ exec.producer alleged to have received complaint abt ghomeshi." 

In a stroke of what very well may be fitting bad luck, Ghomeshi has been dumped by his PR firm over "lies," The Star says (with 1600+ shares). "Dept. of 'I Love It When Bad Things Happen To Bad People,'" Tech Crunch's Jon Evans tweets. Meanwhile, a young journalist writing for Hazlitt explores her own harrowing experiences and how predators have gotten away with it in Canada's newsrooms for so long (1,110). After you've read it, you'll be seeing red.
