Lashon hara is bad.

I think the first part was funny but coming down to the main thing in the movie i think speaking all types of lashon hara is bad.

Like feathers blown on a hill in the wind

I think a big danger of lashon hora is that the speaker can never really fix what he/she did. Once the damaging words have crossed the lips, they are out and are capable of doing much damage. It can be spread to Heaven knows how many people. It is not something that can be fixed, like going to someone you've hurt and helping to make amends, like repaying someone if you've stolen from them. On top of that, the number of people it affects can be very great, as the video showed. The information went out to numerous people and posioned their minds against someone, so they were not free to make their own opinion. It brings disunity and distrust and suspicion between people where there should be none.

the tragedy of it all

I don't know if anyone noticed that the result was that a caring father is going to be harassed by the child protection services. I've had friends who have had to go through this gehennom. Child abuse does occur but facts need to be checked out not assumed!
