News Comment1

This week I’m doing my news comment on a story called “After Harvey Weinstein allegations, psychologists explain why men protect abusive men” by Chris Caesar on Mic. This story is newsworthy because the prominence of the recent allegations against Harvey Weinstein for sexual assault allows for people to speak on the bigger issue of sexual assault and the many people that it impacts. The story captures interest with the term bro code which is something well known, and that people could relate to the subject of the article being why men protect other men who commit things like sexual assault.

    The two questions in the lead are important. This has way more to do with power — Weinstein’s and everyone surrounding him — than it does with a “bro code.” No one wanted to risk giving up power — or never gaining power — so he was allowed to continue.
