    Bogus and legitimate have opposite meanings. They may be paired in contexts in which the contrast between them is useful, but to my knowledge they don't constitute a fixed phrase.

    Where did you see them? Please include an example sentence with every question. It could be a sentence someone else wrote that you need help with. If it is, please remember to tell us where you saw the sentence. Or it could be a sentence you wrote yourself. If it this, please tell us.

    There's a tendency in our culture to see when people have been convicted of a crime, no matter if that charge was bogus or legitimate, that whatever happens to them after that is warranted. And I think that's a really damaging and dangerous narrative that we have, that allows these types of things to happen, as the general public just kind of turns a blind eye to it
