Neil deGrasse Tyson Responds To Sexual Misconduct Allegations

What ever happened to "due process?" Or having your "day in court?" These days, anyone can say anything and it is taken as fact and people's lives are destroyed, careers shattered, and reputations ruined beyond repair without ever being able to defend yourself. 

I’ve recently been publicly accused of sexual misconduct. These accusations have received a fair amount of press in the past forty-eight hours, unaccompanied by my reactions. In many cases, it’s not the media’s fault.  I declined comment on the grounds that serious accusations should not be adjudicated in the press.  But clearly I cannot continue to stay silent.  So below I offer my account of each accusation.
