Media perception

How well a person is portrait in common media perception is now so important to people that many wouldn’t even dare to complain about a ‘positive media personality’.

Yesterday’s ‘Law and Order UK’ dealt with a sex pest gynaecologist who abused, tortured patients. It was extremely difficult to get a conviction for rape because everybody was absolutely mesmerised by ridiculous lies and excuses.

He was this pillar in the community figure, raised money for charity and even rape support groups. Yet, he personally saw his patients as toys and even his wife committed suicide because he was cruel to her too.

A first attempt for a rape conviction failed because no other victims came forward but the officer who happened to come across him as patient. The jury found against the women, even though she had filmed the whole thing.

The only way to get others to come forward was to arrest the doctor in front of a big media contingent, who reported about the arrest in the media so the holy perception was broken.

Why is it so difficult to see rape as rape and convict a guy? Especially in a doctor’s setting, any doctor having sex with a patient in the consulting room should be struck off without even a trial.
