2. It is wrong to minimize this story.

It is about male entitlement, corruption at high levels, and human trafficking.

3. I think it's an interesting story

 

But I think Smollet is interesting too and was told that I was being distracted.

6. IMO, This story has a much larger context in our overall culture

and the sexual exploitation of women. And I might add the corruption rife in the sports world.

5. you may have a point regarding focusing on kraft specifically, but the story is certainly real news.

kraft is not one isolated person getting the police involved in a work of attention-seeking pop culture/political performance art or whatever you want to call it.

kraft is merely the most well-known (so far) of a whole lot of people involved in an all too real story about a human trafficking.

just because someone involved has celebrity status doesn't mean it's not a real story.


is the epstein story not real just because some of the people involved are famous?
