It’s always more complicated….

It’s always more complicated than you think, and this article from Counterpunch shows why: one of the convictions at the center of “Spotlight” and associated priest-as-pedophile scandals demonstrates the danger at the heart of over-criminalization, the plea bargaining system, and modern journalism. The issue is too complex to reduce to a blog post, but I recommend a thoughtful reading of the article, and the very real possibility that there is great injustice rather than great journalism at the heart of this year’s Oscar story.
