The Times protected one of its own
TheWrap’s Sharon Waxman has found witnesses to back up her claim that the left-wing New York Times killed a 2004 story that exposed producer Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual predations.
Just hours after the Weinstein scandal went nuclear earlier this month, Waxman revealed that way back in 2004, while working as a reporter for the Times, she nailed down a story about how Fabrizio Lombardo, the head of Miramax in London, had zero film experience and that his real job was to procure women for Weinstein.
According to Waxman, she had on the record sources ready to confirm “evenings [Fabrizio] organized with Russian escorts.” Moreover, Waxman says she “tracked down a woman in London who had been paid off after an unwanted sexual encounter with Weinstein.”
Waxman claims that after intense pressure from Matt Damon, Russell Crowe, and a personal visit from Weinstein, “The story was stripped of any reference to sexual favors or coercion and buried on the inside of the Culture section[.]”
As one might expect, the New York Times immediately struck back against Waxman’s claims. Executive editor Dean Baquet, who was not with the Times in 2004, said that then-executive editor “Bill Keller and Jill Abramson … have no recollection of being pressured over Ms. Waxman’s story.”

The New York Slime’s(All the Sludge that’s Fit to Print)The old grey hag this is the same liberal rag that covered up the crimes commited by Stalin,Mao and Castro the same liberal rag that supports civilian disarninebt the same liberal rag that has almost always supported the Demac-RATS its a waste of Free press and natural resources to continue to print this liberal birdcage liner/parrots toilet and fishwrap
It isnt going to matter just as MSNBC rejecting the story wont lose them any of the hard core mind controlled.
Further example of the left’s “principles” and support of women’s rights. They only acknowledge this when it is useful as a political weapon and are more than happy to see women abused, or, as a liberal woman, BE abused, if it will secure their jobs, earn them some money or benefit the liberal agenda.
Weinstein’s abuse of women is nothing new in Hollywood. Their women’s rights facade is just another Hollywood production.
Theres a new hash tag trending #metoo, do those responding to this realize that they are saying they too slept their way to the top without true talent? Allowed some pig to take advantage of them?
Well #Notme only once did a manager decide to get “handsy” and was knocked on his ass, then I walked out and found a different job.
Its not about sexual harassment its how much you value yourself.
Ms Streep seems extra cheap.

@kitt: Well, you only have to see one of those “red carpet” reports to see that it would be difficult to lead a lot of these ladies astray. Eddie Bernice Johnson has said they all deserved it.

@kitt: My prediction: Weinstein goes and serves his sentence in “rehab” for a few months (he isn’t exactly taking it seriously, by the way) then Hollywood will give him a big gala banquet to welcome his new, cured, women-respecting carcass back to Hollywood. All gone, think no more about it, everyone deserves a second chance, nothing to see here.
All the left cares about is the pretense of respect. It’s all about the money.
@Deplorable Me: No doubt this isnt the titanic this iceberg wont bring out the filth, they wont protect the children.
What does “the left” have to do with anything? Did you cite the cases of Bill O’Reilly or Roger Ailes as evidence of problems on the right? Have you paid any attention to Trump’s sexual harassment issues, most recently involving a court case brought by Summer Zervos? Did you forget about Jessica Leeds? Or Mindy McGillivray? Or Rachel Crooks? Or Temple Taggart? How about Jill Harth? Ever wonder about the relationship between Trump and Jeffrey Epstein, who got a amazingly light sentence thanks to Alexander Acosta—who is now Secretary of Labor? Probably not. Though there were allegations involving Trump and the rape of a 13 year-old. All that’s useful is that Epstein was also an acquaintance of Bill Clinton.
Possibly those living in glass houses should refrain from throwing stones.
You don’t find it odd that the same women keep making the accusations against these people? No, you wouldn’t. Because, abusing women isn’t the issue… attacking conservatives is the issue. This is why the left routinely covers for their favorite sexual predators.
Paid attention to them until it was clear what they were; more liberal lies meant to compensate for their own political failures. Clinton abused women. Kennedy abused women. Weinstein abused women. These are confirmed. Your sexual harassment accusations against Trump are as baseless and hollow as your accusations of Russian collusion. Your side is an absolute joke. A farce.
You mean the guy Bill Clinton buddied up with so he could be supplied with young girls? You leftists don’t know when to shut up; every time you make an accusation, you wind up incriminating your own idols.
You are desperate, Greg. Desperate and ridiculous. Desperate and pitiful. You liberals need to take a look in the mirror. You apparently have no idea what a joke you have made of yourselves.
You’re correct. We somehow don’t realize how blind we are to the unparalleled virtues of the current administration, to the endless outpouring of it’s successes, and to how totally imaginary any of it perceived shortcomings actually are. For some reason we suspect that the Donald Trump administration is too much concerned with the ego of Donald Trump. Nor do we realize—fools that we are—that the joke is entirely on us.
@Greg: I won’t say the Trump administration has been 100% successful. In addition to the left doing all they can to make sure the nation is crippled while he is President, he has had a very tough list of disasters to deal with; some fresh, many cans kicked down the road to 2017. But, it is nothing akin to the characterization the left creates. Certainly nothing like allowing, knowing full well what the Russians were up to, an adversary gain control of a fifth of a vital strategic resource while the current Secretary of State grows wealthy in connection to the deal.
And, seriously, I don’t really believe YOU believe that “did not inhale” type tale about the 33,000 emails. NO ONE is that blind and gullible.
If you actually believed Trump was as terrible as you say you do, you would let him carry out his agenda and fail. Then you could use that against him. However, you FEAR his success and you FEAR the irrelevancy of the Democrat party in the wake. So, disruption is your only option, but the disruption exposes the true character of the Democrats.
@kitt: Yeah, I’ve read about his stay. He sounds really contrite and determined to do better, doesn’t he? But, that’s how liberals act when they’ve gotten away with crimes, isn’t it?
None of this is a shock, I always assumed that this is normal
Hollywood behavior. The fact that Hollywood types are constantly morals lecturing is hypocrisy in the extreme.
@Greg: You’re the one in a glass house and, indeed, the joke’s on you.
You have liberal activists (actors) with years of supporting the left and slamming the right, all while not upholding the values the left claims to promote.
That’s the joke.
It’s all coming down, Greg. Hope your ready to be this year’s version of the fundamentalist bigot.
@Deplorable Me: I just read today, Sunday, that he did not make it through rehab a week and never followed the rules. He is a classic batterer
/abuser of the sexual type. Complete Denial. Sitting in jail and losing Control over his own life and forced to attend therapy for sexual violence, he might change. Hahahaha Just joking! He won’t be locked up and I am sure he has enough cash that financial judgements won’t matter. Maybe this public accusations & shaming a man who has no shame is all that can be done with him.
