Harvey Weinstein is charged with the rape of a woman at a Doubletree Hotel on Lexington Avenue in New York City. However, Mr. Weinstein’s lawyers released e-mail correspondence between Mr. Weinstein and the woman and their relationship appears to have been consensual. There are e-mails about having him meet her mother, about wanting more than a booty call, and offers some fairly friendly banter.
The jury is still out — indeed, it has not been selected as yet — but there are two sides to every story. And most of the time these days, the story shows up in texts and e-mails.
