Journalists are friends of the First Amendment, and of courts that uphold it against bogus defamation claims.

As readers of this blog know, I often post here on #MeToo matters. That will still be the case with most original investigations. However, I am increasingly posting commentaries on this subject on my new Substack newsletter, "Words for the Wise."

I hope you will navigate over to my latest post on that platform.

While you are there, I hope you will explore the archives. If you like what you see, please consider subscribing. There are some special deals on offer!

Best to all, Michael

Update Oct 15: A story in Science about the National Academy of Science's ejection of Peruvian archaeologist Luis Jaime Castillo Butters from international membership, a process that began with my reporting about his misconduct.
