Answer of three questions
Axing a Beloved Prairie Home Companion
There should be no doubt that Minnesota Public Radio did what was right, but there are certain in the information provided by them. For one, a show this famous should have done there press conference well before the news of their lead star being dismissed started to go public. They should have tried their level best to keep the story under wraps until the time was right. Another thing that they did wrong is that they would have thoroughly explained to the people why they are firing their best man, as it is most knowledge that a star is always treated as a public property.
Had Garrison Keillor hired me to defend him in court, I would have stressed two points. First, the matter must be thoroughly investigated by a third-party detective so that it may be cleared that this is not a move to defame him. This is a possibility since many cases registered in #Metoo had also been false accusations as well. Second, I would have advised Mr. Keillor to seek an out-of-court settlement, as he had already given a written apology that had been accepted, and it could have disastrous consequences if it is proven otherwise in front of the judge.
Given had many lives are ruined by this movement, it would not surprise anyone that Garrison Keillor's bright career is ruined after these accusations. Regardless of the fact of the court's verdict, Keillor's life could never be the same again. There will always be a section of the public that will hate him and say that he has somehow influenced the court to declare him innocent. Such has also happened, even in a third world country, like Pakistan where men are considered traditionally more powerful by law than women, yet many false accusations have ruined several careers CITATION Afz19 \l 1033 (Afzal, 2019). So, this stain will always be left on the career of the great star.
