Tim Hunt has now been completely exonerated. His main accuser has been totally discredited. Many rash and stupid people have egg on their face, including serious news organizations. And yet he is still being excluded from positions that are rightfully his. It was obvious to anyone that this was a put-up job from the start, and still many people who should know better were taken in. Such is the power of politics, of credulity, of prejudice, of viciousness. What a shameful episode.
