Joe Stiglitz on Strauss Kahn

The ferocity of the mass media’s trial and conviction of Dominique Strauss Kahn on sexual assault charges makes me wonder whether the “presumption of innocence” principle is finally dead. Anything related to sexual crime these days seems to provoke an orgy of self-righteous indignation.

Strauss Kahn seems to have been a worthwhile IMF leader. Here is a tribute to his accomplishments by Joe Stiglitz,.

The media attack on Strauss Kahn seems Likely to have ended his political career irrespective of eventual judgements of his guilt. Indeed I wonder whether efforts to dig up alleged past misdeeds and the visual presentations of Strauss Kahn as an unshaven, seedy old man in prison garb make any idea of a fair trial a bit of a joke.
