Jane Fonda: They can sweep the floor at Starbucks until they learn.
Learn what?
Not to have 'caveman values'?
Not to have values that conflict with the values you want them to have?
Updates on a theme and its components.

Jian Ghomeshi still in trouble with womens groups for insufficient penance. New editor of NYRB still atoning for his predecessor's sins in allowing Ghomeshi to have a voice.
Geoffrey Rush both wins and loses in pretrial skirmishes. He won in keeping a foreign witness out of the proceedings as Judge ruled its too close to trial to bring in videotaping of geographically distant witnesses. He lost on issue of defendant sending lawyer to USA to dig up dirt on Geoffrey Rush.
So trial will go forward on whether Australian media can repeatedly link his name to major scandalous behavior of others while claiming they are
covering the metoo movement and not just his minor act that is of a trivial nature and probably clearly a false accusation made for female's desire for career advancement/compensation.
Media's 'truth' defense will focus on
what media knew at time of publication, not what it may have later learned in defensive fishing expedition

Rush gave his evidence in Australian court, defense likely to get the next two days. Special damages assertion means Rush may receive a few million rather than the paltry amount Australia usually awards in defamation cases.

Rush and his wife continued on the stand. Each became emotional. Not usually a good thing to do on the witness stand.

Trial continues before Australian judge and focuses on the bad pun of the headline extending the scope of the behavior in the mind of the reader if not in the text of the article itself. Also the focus is on an alcohol fueled meeting between two women one of whom wrote an article without any notes or much time for refection and sobriety.

Judge concerned about a erious actor committing improper activities of any sort in a floodlit room filled with several hundred witnesses.

Newspaper maintains a narrow reading of the actual allegations is all that matters not that it was linked tosome larger societal issue of gross improprieties.
