    Sounds like a name of a group but it's not funny at all. I'm sure everyone has heard the story so I don't have a link.

    It's not even the story that offends or bothers me....that kind of thing happens in Hollywood a lot...it's the hypocrisy of the liberals.

    SNL ignored the story while they bash conservatives every week. A big deal was made about Trumps comments on Access Hollywood but most are quiet on this.

    After 4 days liberal Meryl Streep finally came out against him but only because she was shamed into doing so.

    So many still havent said anything.

    And designer Donna Karan said it was the women's fault for dressing the way they did so she was protecting that POS pig Weinstein.

    I used to like her clothes ....not so much anymore.

    Just thought I'd post this because I didn't see it mentioned and if it's on here...I missed it.

    Yes, it's the definition of hypocrisy. As soon as a scandal comes up, Republicans turn on their own. That can be frustrating, but it's preferable to the hypocrisy of the left.

    The news media has been sitting on this story for many years and because it is one of their own
    it never got into print. When the NYT finally printed it, it took 4 days for any other news media to follow up I guess they had to ask permeation to run the story. He was a supported of Obama and visited the white house many times he donated to Obama and Hillary.​

    It was an NBC reporter who developed the story. However, NBC refused to run it so he shopped it to the New Yorker Magazine, who broke it.

    He is so fat and ugly that that was the only way he could get a woman to be intimate with him. At least Slick Willy could get women without forcing them.

    Something that strikes me about this story is that people suffer at the hands of powerful people every day in all kinds of (mostly) work situations. This story of coarse has been all over the news. There are some coming out saying they "heard rumors" for years. Of coarse you can't report or prosecute someone on rumors. I don't blame the victims. The victim is often alone with little or no knowledge that this is being perpetrated on others. They may suspect of coarse but they don't have the power to do anything. One lonely report from them and they are done. What proof do they have?

    I know I have been in situations like this through work that were not sexual abuse but people didn't do their job and they were protected by those higher or they just got by with it. And no one listens or cares.

    Abuse of power and money and it happens on lower levels also.

    I guess a lot of people are wishing they never knew this guy. I saw a clip on the news of Michele Obama calling this guy a "friend" I can only imagine the damage control some want to do.

    I didn't know who he was when I first read of his energy. What's the differences, your difference, anyone, in liberals and conservatives? I like Meryl Streep. Did you see "Out of Africa?"

    This is blowing up all over. It just showed up on my news feed that Rose McGowan states she was raped by this scum in the late 90's. I like her. She is not a big name actress however and would be powerless and ruined if she had tried to come out with this alone. It says she accepted a payment. She probably didn't know what else to do.

    This isn't going away anytime soon. I hope there will be some justice with this many women coming forward.

    That leftest Hollywood scum like Roman Polanski who ran off to France sooner than go to jail for raping a minor and then the Hollywood bunch gave him an award. Now this creep has flown to Europe for treatment as he says, but that is just to escape justice

    I think Meryl Streep is a superb actress. I just recently got around to seeing Out of Africa. It was a great movie. Does she have any connection to the Harvey Weinstein scandal?

    @Shirley Martin I don't know if Meryl Streep has any connection. I heard on the news yesterday that Glenn Close had stated she had heard rumors. But no one can be convicted on just rumors and hear say. It's hard to know who knew what at this point. And I'm sure a total truth will never come out.

    I imagine that if an actress gave in to his advances early in her career, thinking - perhaps truly - that this was something she needed to in order to make it in the industry, that's not something she's proud of, so I can fully understand that it can be difficult for them to come forward with it. There is also the idea that it could be dangerous to make accusations (even if true) against someone who has power within the industry. Harvey Weinstein no longer has that power.

    Ken they had to get permeation before they can come forward like the news media and everyone else. Now for some reason they got permeation now everyone is speaking up.

    Hollywood was founded on sexual harassment. Even back in the day of Walt Disney apparently he had an underground dungeon on the Disney network premises where they shot adult/teen pornographic movies. I also read somewhere that Disneyland in Pasadena had a history of missing children in the park who were lost from their parents. They were taken, abused and then returned distraught. Also lets not forget the old Hollywood casting couch. Sadly though all these pedophiles and sexual abusers get away with murder because they have friends in high places to cover their ass. It's also sad to say that these same friends of theirs are also deviates as well. And it covers every legal aspect of society like the police force, judicial system like judges, lawyers, supreme judges, doctors and politicians.

    He may even face rape charges....I would have stayed in rehab longer if I was him.
