Media repeatedly killed Weinstein story

Ronan Farrow demonstrates the power of indifference to attempted intimidation:
Ronan Farrow told Rachel Maddow on Tuesday that he was threatened personally with a lawsuit by Harvey Weinstein while reporting on what turned out to be a New Yorker feature.

"In the course of this reporting, I was threatened with a lawsuit personally by Mr. Weinstein," Farrow said on MSNBC. In anticipation of the story, Weinstein had enlisted a crisis management team and several attorneys, including lawyer Lisa Bloom, who resigned from the film mogul's team on Saturday.

When Maddow asked why Farrow's feature ended up at The New Yorker rather than at NBC, where he is employed as a correspondent, he replied, "You would have to ask NBC and NBC executives about the details. I'm not going to comment on any news organization's story that they did or did not run."

He added: "I will say that over many years, many news organizations have circled this story and faced a great deal of pressure in doing so."

Farrow had said that he worked for 10 months to investigate claims of harassment and assault against Weinstein. His report, published Tuesday in The New Yorker, included on-the-record recollections by actress Asia Argento and model Ambra Battilana Gutierrez. It included audio of Weinstein admitting to groping Gutierrez.

"I walked into the door at The New Yorker with an explosively reportable piece that should have been public earlier, and immediately, obviously, The New Yorker recognized that, and it is not accurate to say that it was not reportable. In fact, there were multiple determinations that it was reportable at NBC," Farrow recalled.
I expect we can understand why the son of Mia Farrow is not going to be put off by an influential Hollywood figure prone to sexual misbehavior.  And it's not hard to understand how Weinstein managed to force less determined reporters off his trail. That being said, the utter cowardice of the media demonstrates, again, that they are not watch dogs, but the lap dogs of the Left.

NBC has story, it goes to another outlet. NBC News' boss worked for Harvey for a number of years. I still can't shake that circumstantial evidence around connecting to the Trump Tape. Almost as if there are forces hyper focused on turning the Media's more rabid members on themselves.

There's a lot going on in the background.

Anybody who reads the gossip sites has known this stuff about Weinstein for years, so it must have been common knowledge in Hollywood. Weinstein has ruined plenty of young lives. Keep digging into this story and you will find it gets a lot worse. He is far from the only one.

I think what is required is a fair, confirmable method of protecting oneself from these incidents. If one is 'fragile' when dealing with potential blackmail, false allegations etc, there needs to be clear procedures for preventing this.

We have an unwritten understanding about, for example, in the workplace one shouldn't be alone in a room with a female, should guard his speak etc.

But I get the feeling there is resistance to this for a couple reasons: moving the goalposts, and the power of the feminist/left to prevent this from happening.

The Hollywood left were making jokes about it publicly.

And a bit in 30 Rock had an actress state she had refused to have sex with him 3 times out of 5. Apparently the casting couch was just funny.

The "media" are always captured by someone, it's usually the relevant level of politics (Trump's administration being the exception), and it's amazingly parallel to how regulatory agencies come to be subsidiaries of the very industries they regulate.

The line between organizations that "report the news," those that create entertainment and the firms that buy advertising space with them has probably never been this absent.

These people aren't afraid of coming forward as if this guy is some sort of perverted sexual svengali that has some mystical control over them and the industry. It's something of an inside joke to them. Another of Hollywood's amusing idiosyncrasies everyone in the business knows about and puts up with as if it were no different than a balky vending machine or photocopier you need to whack in a certain spot to get it to work. These actors and actresses that condemn this pervert for what he is, professionals who have been silent thus far, only do so because virtue signalling and playing the fainting victim are profitable for them to do so.

The only things Hollywood loves more than a bandwagon to ride is money and sexual gratification.

Blogger dc.sunsets October 11, 2017 8:50 AM  

There are always a dozen billion potential "stories" each day; the "News" plays gatekeeper to tell you only those that serve their masters' agenda(s).

How are people today better "informed" than our prehistoric savage ancestors whose shamans and story-tellers "explained" complex and terrifying reality with stories told over campfires? News "anchors" might as well read their teleprompters while wearing grass skirts and beating human-skin drums.

During World War One there were TWO transatlantic cables that carried information from Europe to North America; one ran direct across the sea bed, the other ran THROUGH Great Britain. The British literally dug up the direct line off the sea bed and cut it, so that "news" of the war had to travel either slowly (by post/ship) or fast by the line the British controlled. Reality as perceived by Americans was molded, formed, captured, extraordinarily rendered.

Now, in the age of Video News, CGI has "dug up the cable." Video can be created from whole cloth, its fiction nearly--if not completely--undetectable.

Paradoxically, it is the very ability to seamlessly FAKE the "news" that coincides with the initiation of collapse in social trust. Those who own and run the "media" have put the basis of their entire "product," credibility, on their own bonfire.

Ronan Farrow is guilty of the same behavior as those who kept silent at Miramax and The Weinstein Company.

When asked about NBC's refusal to handle the story, Farrow doesn't call out his complicit executives directly. Instead, he says: "You'll have to ask them." In other words, he wants to hide the truth to protect his NBC gig.

A better move would have been to resign from NBC and be a bigger hero to the masses. But golly, no.

I applaud his investigative work, but Farrow himself lacks moral courage.

I think the story of gay Hollywood is so sordid and reaches so far in so many directions that NO ONE wants it told. Too many manly stars would be revealed as having been targeted in their youth, and too many in power would be revealed as either participating in it or protecting those who do.

Blogger Cail Corishev October 11, 2017 9:08 AM  

The latest is that Harvey thinks his own brother fed the story to the NYT.

The NYT has had the story since at least 2004, so no one had to feed it to anyone. The signal just had to go out that he was no longer a protected member of the tribe, so the story could be run without fear of reprisal. That could have come from the brother, if he let it be known that Harvey didn't have the money/power anymore to destroy a NYT reporter. But that still leaves questions, because why wouldn't he?

Some think the signal was the report that one of his accusers (the one in the potted plant story) was Jewish, so publicizing that was a quick way to broadcast that he was on the outs and fair game. Maybe so. The attitude shift towards him sure spread quickly somehow.

Anonymous marcus barry October 11, 2017 9:30 AM  

Side note, in respective articles both Farrow and Rebecca Traister, go out of their way to namecheck Bill Cosby, Roger Ailes, Bill O’Reilly and Donald Trump as examples of abusive behavior without once mentioning Anthony Weiner, Seattle Mayor Ed Murray, or Bill Clinton, almost as if they're following a script. So I'm not 100% persuaded about Farrow's "reporting chops" Beyond that I'd really like to know what's driving this. The most likely theory I've seen is that this is a sign the far left is driving the "centrist" Clinton cabal off the stage much like the new right is attempting to crush the GOPe. Whatever, both parties appear to be fracturing along similar lines.

John Travolta got in trouble for propositioning a male masseuse on a cruise ship. He offered the guy $12,000, I think, to have gay sex. His reaction to being turned down for that was interesting. Travolta seemed genuinely surprised. He exclaimed that hey, this was the Hollywood way. This is how he got his big start during "Welcome Back, Kotter", he was a boy-toy on the casting couch. And, he had made a pretty fair offer in his mind. $12,000 - hey you do get something out of it! So he was baffled and surprised.

He didn't understand being turned down. At fifty-nine years old with most of his life spent in Tinseltown, this is the life he knows, this is how things work.

It's appalling to see the stories of so many of these women who are coming forward. For every Gwyneth Paltrow or Angelina Jolie there are a hundred more whose names we will never know - male and female. They have been eaten up, scarred, used and abused, and tossed aside by these monsters.

It really is sickening, how heartless and cruel to treat people this way. Weinstein, as bad as he his, doesn't even seem to be the worst. Check out Bryan Singer, the X-Men director. Total raving pedo. This is known. And they're still handing him scripts and big pots of money for films.

to civil suits from the victims now that it has come out that they had long standing knowledge and in some cases helped cover thing up????

Good luck the hardest part would be not getting a jew judge assigned to the case. Notice all the judges against TRUMP have been anchor baby, jew, jew, jew, gay jew, black, jew.

Weinstein, as bad as he his, doesn't even seem to be the worst. Check out Bryan Singer

The problem with Singer is the underage boys he takes on vacations, get passed around to lesser powergays until they are 30 and no one is interested in them. They end up in their 30s with a middle school education, & expensive habits/addictions. If you wanted to make a PPGATE like movie to counter "tranny reading time in elementary school" interviewing the homeless in the San Fran-LA area would give you stories that couldn't be made up.

you have to look at some of these people like Katy Perry and wonder WTF they have done to her to push her to where she is!!!

"That being said, the utter cowardice of the media demonstrates, again, that they are not watch dogs, but the lap dogs of the Left".

Probably even worse than that. Most Journ-O-Lists are well aware of the low position they hold on the Progressive totem pole, somewhere between servants and hangers on. But they get a taste of what is possible by being in contact with the "beautiful people" in places like Hollywood, and are desperate to exchange their lowly place and be elevated to become a real "player".

How many journalists, minor television personalities (like Late Night hosts) and so on also dropped trousers at the hint they too, could join the upper circles?

Nice strawman. We're well aware that there are plenty of girls who would blow you for a ride to Hollywood, let alone a part in a movie. You're missing the point. Some people are missing the point so agressively that they must be working at it.

You don't have to think they were innocent princesses abused against their will to think that the whole thing is wrong and needs to be torn down. Why is this hard?


I've noticed that a lot in these threads too. They're not getting the concept of greater enemy vs. lesser enemy, or of useful infighting amongst enemies. The ones who are attacking the accusers, who are all indeed feminista whores who sold themselves to Fat Bastard for fame and fortune, miss the points that a) Fat Bastard is a better target; and b) you never interfere when an enemy is destroying himself. Fat Bastard's destruction will hasten the destruction of feminism more than going after some airhead actress. They fail to see that the airheads will be discredited as well - not only for using the casting couch but for keeping silent all these years.

MPAI. Most people are easily led. Most people are corruptible. Marks always volunteer to be conned. We're surrounded by temptations to ancient vices and a host of modern ones. Many (if not most) people succumb to them, and many never recover.

Truly, the world is full of pain. Rule #1 for me is "try not to add to it." It's a simple rule, difficult to follow.

The world is also full of wonder. There is nothing more miraculous than a baby. The world is full of beauty. Sunsets are free for the enjoyment.

Pity those who are victimized by their own weaknesses or by the viciousness of others (if often the former precedes the latter.) The tale of Hollywood and our modern deification of celebrity status is one long tapestry of vice, pain, folly and evil.

Nice strawman.


Perhaps you can explain why this was a strawman argument? Especially since it was meant sincerely, as I knew that someone would get offended by it. And here you are, right on cue!

I’m quite aware the whole thing needs to be torn down. I just don’t get upset and view women that went into something with eyes wide open as somehow “brave” and “courageous” because they’re exposing their soul. Those that are showing up now are just looking for cash, either for not having their dreams fulfilled or looking for notoriety to score some screen time or some print time. In the end, whether you become a prostitute or not, you make a choice. I’ll just let the left eat their own on this one, as women are as protected a subpopulation as blacks and are also apparently incapable of being responsible for their decisions.

Blogger Cail Corishev October 11, 2017 1:18 PM  

It's a strawman to say that we're A) White Knights, and B) offended, and then respond on that basis. I was neither. I don't have to be offended by what you say to point out that you're wrong.

You pretended that guys here are White Knights then proceeded to smash on that. Dude, that's strawmanning.

Dude, nobody here said that. Maybe you confused this place with Daily Kos?

LOL. Matt Damon knew all about Harvey. Listen to Damon trying to pre-emptively cover his ass here: "If there was ever an event that I was at and Harvey was doing this kind of thing and I didn’t see it, then I am so deeply sorry." LOL. Damon didn't just know about it, he was AT events where Harvey assaulted and molested girls! Classic!

Weinstein's lawyer gave $10,000 to Manhattan DA after he declined to prosecute back when.

That DA's name is Cyrus Vance, Junior. Boomertard son of Jimmy Carter's Secretary of State.

I see uniparty everywhere. Everywhere uniparty.

Blogger VD October 11, 2017 2:49 PM  

I'm sorry to any White Knights I might offend, but does anyone actually believe that there are innocent girls in Hollywood that are not aware of the quid pro quo associated with becoming a "successful" actress?

I suggest you drop the "only wise man in the room" posture when you're here. It never ends well for those prone to striking that pose here.

Anonymous BBGKB October 11, 2017 3:01 PM  

OMG #Weinstein even went after Nathan Lane.

"Nathan Lane: Harvey Weinstein Threw Me Against a Wall"

But that still doesn't change he is the last Hollywood jew that likes those old enough to have tits.

Linguistic kill shot from Corey Lewandowski:

"Harvey Weinstein Democrats"

VD, that sounds like something you could work with for Memewars!

Speaking of linguistic kill shots, I also love this one from Vox:

One wonders how many of these guys, such as Daman and Crowe, did the casting couch routine to get their parts.

Damon on Harvey's casting couch almost makes sense, with his boyish good looks. He may be male, but he was an ingenue once, a young innocent to be despoiled by Harvey.

Picturing Russell Crowe is much more distasteful. He was a middle-aged-looking man by the time he got famous. The image of manly old Russell greco-roman wrestling with Harvey to "get ahead" is even more distasteful.

There's two kinds of Hollywood actors - "sleep with Weinstein for a career boost" desperate and "raped by a bear for an Oscar" desperate. Never go full DiCaprio.

I'm not sure I really see the distinction

i was going to say, "One of these acts is heterosexual" ...

and then i remembered that DiCaprio's bear was supposed to be a sow.

i'm really confused now.
