I used "the SJW mob 'won'" because I was quite angry about what happened here, as it was REALLY unjust, but I didn't have the energy to write down why.
Someone else has written down all that was wrong with the reporting around the incident:
I'm a fierce defender of (freedom of) the press, while also critical of a lot of the current (click-driven) press.
Kudos to the author(s) for doing proper journalism, which includes providing references/links.
@FreePietje Good article. Calm and reasonable summary and timeline. The blog posts and beast article were nasty journalism. I think it also played into the way algorithms proliferate outrage.
