Great article. I must admit my first reaction was that Tucker Carlson is so much worse and what happened to Hillary was unjustified. How does that even compare???…But you’re right and looking at all three cases, there are some intriguing similarities. I’d also agree that there really isn’t a good blanket rule to all of this.
Sometimes this “information warfare” has removed truly terrible people from power. Other times good reformed people have been taken down for things that sound way worse at first than they usually are. I guess the only way to know the difference is to be critical.
Measure what you know about the person targeted and measure their response to it. That can help tell you what side they fall on.
