NY Times covered up Weinstein's predations
https://www.thewrap.com/media-enablers-h...ork-times/

Times had the story in 2004, but refused to publish.

...In 2004, I was still a fairly new reporter at The New York Times when I got the green light to look into oft-repeated allegations of sexual misconduct by Weinstein. It was believed that many occurred in Europe during festivals and other business trips there.

I traveled to Rome and tracked down the man who held the plum position of running Miramax Italy. According to multiple accounts, he had no film experience and his real job was to take care of Weinstein’s women needs, among other things.

As head of Miramax Italy in 2003 and 2004, Fabrizio Lombardo was paid $400,000 for less than a year of employment. He was on the payroll of Miramax and thus the Walt Disney Company, which had bought the indie studio in 1993.

I had people on the record telling me Lombardo knew nothing about film, and others citing evenings he organized with Russian escorts....

Still waiting for enraged vocal opposition to HW and everything he's stood for from the elitist left.

And.... GO!

Amazing how many people knew about him and no media ever did anything about until last week.

Who did he piss off? Curious about this story breaking now. What are they trying to cover up that is going on now that this story will take up the other story's oxygen?

Maybe they should be thanking Donald Trump. He has exposed all their hypocrisy.

I have a funny feeling the mega silence from Hollywood and the left isn't just because their hypocrisy has been exposed.

At that point, it wouldn't be difficult (one would think) for them to just come out and speak out against this and further improve their image with their base and others.

Unless...

They're not talking because there's a lot more dirt out there. That's really the logical answer here. Put yourselves in their shoes and think about it. It would be incredibly simple to put out a statement saying, "I'm shocked, really. I never knew that side of him and it disgust me."

I have a funny feeling the reason we're not seeing a lot of that is because they know if they do... he'd swing back.
