Kevin Spacey is my favorite "living" actor, not person, actor. Tom Hanks is a favorite too.
So, yesterday, criminal charges against Spacey were dropped. Instead of a big splash that was a crawler. More charges haven't come so far, but the media is ever hopeful of smearing him some more.
His accuser took the Fifth because he "allegedly" doctored cell phone evidence by altering photos and then threw away a cell phone. Notice, I give him the benefit of the doubt with that "allegedly". Mr. Spacey got no such consideration.
The media swarm totally prejudged Mr. Spacey ahead of his trial, reminiscent of the witch hunts of the 50s McCarthy hearings and smears against "alleged" Communists.
You get accused and you are labeled "guilty" says the media.
Now they (media experts and people in the know who get paid for blabbing about other people's tragedies on TV ) say this "in no way exonerates" Mr. Spacey that the charges against him were dropped. His accuser was the son of a woman with media connections and "influence" -a local news woman.
People who do not have Mr. Spacey's resources are regularly accused, tried and convicted in the press.
Is he guilty? I don't know. Do you? It wasn't proven.
He has theability to publish about what the media did to him and the moola to produce a film about it all. I hope that he does that and makes more movies. I also hope that people take everything they hear on "news" with a dose of healthy skepticism.
