America loves a winner!


Why does Hollywood , at least the old guard, show so much reference for this guy ?

Is it based purely on his artistic genius, and Hollywood being who they are, willingly looks past his criminal record ? Kinda like how some folks will always give Woody Allen a pass ?

Because with attitudes towards men these days, like Harvey, and him, it seems to me like his welcome would have worn a bit thin. I mean, he DID drug and rape a young teenager when he was in his 30's. Roy Moore lost an election over mere CLAIMS of creeping on some girls that age, but he never was even accused of raping them. Polanski was CONVICTED of that crime.

Is there some level of sympathy some feel he's owed, due to the murder of his wife and unborn child by the Manson family ?

Or possibly, most of Hollywood knows there are skeletons in almost everyone's closet, and by holding him up, they send a collective " Yeah, so what ? " message to the rest of society ?

Never have understood this, so TIA for anyone who can explain it to me.

Phonies are hard to figure out, so I don't bother trying. But it was fun to watch old guard and Hollywood legend Madam Streep have to explain herself to a little know actress Rose McGowan.

Really? Actually, really not.

Meryl Streep wrote: Not every actor, actress, and director who made films that Harvey Weinstein distributed knew he abused women, or that he raped Rose in the 90s, other women before and others after, until they told us. We did not know that women’s silence was purchased by him and his enablers.

HW needed us not to know this, because our association with him bought him credibility, an ability to lure young, aspiring women into circumstances where they would be hurt.

He needed me much more than I needed him and he made sure I didn’t know. Apparently he hired ex Mossad operators to protect this information from becoming public.

Rose assumed and broadcast something untrue about me, and I wanted to let her know the truth. Through friends who know her, I got my home phone number to her the minute I read the headlines. I sat by that phone all day yesterday and this morning, hoping to express both my deep respect for her and others’ bravery in exposing the monsters among us, and my sympathy for the untold, ongoing pain she suffers. No one can bring back what entitled bosses like Bill O’Reilly, Roger Ailes, and HW took from the women who endured attacks on their bodies and their ability to make a living.. And I hoped that she would give me a hearing. She did not, but I hope she reads this.

What a load of carp. Worst kept secret in Hollywood. EVERYONE knew.

EVERYONE.

The one's claiming they didn't are lying. It's just that simple.

If Harvey Weinstein's game had been widely known from the woman's side, emphasis on woman's, it would have been the end of the game. The women kept quiet until they stopped keeping quiet, then that's the end of HW and the complicated career games he played with women.

There is an article speculating about how HW worked. The women STILL aren't talking in sufficient detail about HW. We will have to wait for the books to be published. The real story would possibly make them look like Inara, except in this Universe the Companions are not respected, so these 20th to 21st Century Inaras are disgusted by HW and have, for the most part, kept quiet until now.

Joss never explained the path Companionship took to high respectability in the 26th Century. There must be extra elements that complicate Companionship besides sex, money, powerful producer, and actress's career, but what elements?

One article said about lesser figures than Harvey Weinstein getting away with assault: "So, no, I wasn’t at all surprised to hear the dozens of sexual harassment and assault allegations against Weinstein, nor that it reportedly went on for decades with plenty of enabling from subordinates and peers alike. I wasn’t surprised to hear reports that he got away with it for 30 years, only stumbling once his career was already waning. If that one thoughtless comedian could dodge consequences and intimidate people into silence on the set of a web series barely anyone watched, what the hell would have stopped a mammoth figure like Weinstein from doing the same?"

The story DID NOT NAME the thoughtless comedian. That is very cowardly of the writer from the country claiming to be "the home of the brave and the land of the free" in the national anthem.
