Why Ronan Farrow´s Harvey Weinstein
Bombshell Did Not Run on NBC

Hollywood Reporter, by Marisa Guthrie

Original Article

Posted By:abuela10, 10/12/2017 6:46:53 AM

The piece was originally supposed to air on the network in February as Hollywood was gearing up for the Oscars. Why didn’t NBC News break the Harvey Weinstein bombshell that ultimately ended up in The New Yorker under the byline of one of its contributors? It’s a question Rachel Maddow put to Ronan Farrow — until this summer an NBC News contributor fronting a series called Undercovered — who had been working on the story for 10 months. Farrow’s piece was originally targeted to air on NBC in February, just as Hollywood was gearing up for the Oscars, sources tell The Hollywood

I remember Lisa Myer’s NBC interviewed with Juanita Broaddrick who was the rape victim of Bill Clinton. NBC squashed the interview because Clinton was being impeached at the time. NBC wanted to wait to run this after the impeachment. A journalist from the WSJ named Dorothy Rabinowitz made her way to Arkansas and got the interview, not on video, but on audio and exposed it in the WSJ print. and beat out poor Lisa Myer’s. This is not shocking because NBC is in bed with the liberals.

Maybe they were saving it for when Weinstein ran for president?

I call it self inflicted paralysis - But, in the media circles, I´m sure it is known as "whistling past the graveyard".

Maybe Ronan should have used something more incendiary in the Weinstein story, you know like NBC did with GM´s full-size pickup trucks...

This only proves to me, the bar for exposing liberals is much much higher than say... Trump or any other Republican.

Wasn´t it NBC that rushed to pull out a audio tape of Trump with Billy Bush? A 10 yr old tape of a man bragging about himself. It was a little crude, but given the difference of words and actual assault.. I think we are all smart enough to know the game played here.

NBC is a communist front group that provides disinformation and marxist propaganda.

Hillary Clinton breaks toe falling down

Hillary Clinton was delayed arriving for the filming of the BBC´s Graham Norton Show due to a broken toe. The former US presidential candidate arrived for the recording of Norton´s BBC One show wearing a surgical boot. Mrs Clinton said: "I was running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand, I was talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards. "I tried to get up and it really hurt. I´ve broken my toe. I´ve received excellent care from your excellent health service." Mrs Clinton is said to be "very apologetic" after missing her slot on

Fusion GPS to House: We´ll take Fifth

On October 4, the House Intelligence Committee subpoenaed Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm at the center of the Trump dossier affair. On Monday, the company told the House what it can do with its subpoena. Fusion GPS chief Glenn Simpson and two others will "invoke their constitutional privileges not to testify," Simpson´s lawyers told the committee in a letter. The panel shouldn´t even bother to call Simpson to the hearing room, the lawyers said, because he won´t answer their questions under any circumstances. It seems unlikely the House will grant that request. If Simpson and two other GPS officials are

A big get with Harvey Weinstein accuser Lauren Sivan wasn’t big enough to pull Megyn Kelly out of her ratings slump. Her “Megyn Kelly Today” viewership slipped from 0.77 ratings points on Monday to 0.54 ratings points on Tuesday of last week. “It’s a possible all-time low for ‘Today.’ It may even be lower than her [Fox] cable show. [NBC News president] Noah [Oppenheim] and [NBC News and MSNBC chairman] Andy [Lack] are in big trouble,” a source told us. Another source added, “That’s a big drop.

A high-stakes legal showdown is brewing for President Donald Trump, as a woman who said he groped her has subpoenaed all documents from his campaign pertaining to “any woman alleging that Donald J. Trump touched her inappropriately.” The subpoena — whose contents have not been previously reported — was issued in March but entered into the court file last month. The White House did not respond to a request for comment, nor did Trump’s attorney. Summer Zervos, a former contestant on the Trump’s reality TV show The Apprentice, accused Trump of kissing and grabbing her when she went to his bungalow at

There´s Only One Hero in the Harvey
Weinstein Saga: Ronan Farrow
Weekly Standard, by Lee Smith    Original Article
Posted By: abuela10- 10/12/2017 8:40:02     Post Reply
On Tuesday the New Yorker published Ronan Farrow’s expose of Harvey Weinstein, describing in detail the famous Hollywood producer’s long history of sexual abuse and assaults of actresses and other women in the movie industry. Coming on the heels of a New York Times article published last Thursday about Weinstein, the Farrow article seems to clinch the case against a major figure in the world of entertainment, media, and politics. The question is why, after years of protecting Weinstein, did the American press publish two pieces about him in less than a week? Was it because after stories detailing the sex

An American woman and her family, who had been held captive since 2012 by the Taliban-affiliated Haqqani network after being kidnapped while hiking in Afghanistan, were freed, the White House announced Thursday. Caitlin Coleman, 32, was seven months pregnant when she and her Canadian husband Josh Boyle were abducted. President Trump appeared to hint at the news of Coleman´s release during a speech in Coleman´s home state of Pennsylvania. "Something happened today, where a country that totally disrespected us called with some very, very important news," Trump said. "And one of my generals came in. They said, ´You know, I have to tell

´I Hate Everyone In the White House´
Trump Seethes As Advisers Fear

Posted By: abuela10- 10/12/2017 6:43:31     Post Reply
At first it sounded like hyperbole, the escalation of a Twitter war. But now it’s clear that Bob Corker’s remarkable New York Times interview—in which the Republican senator described the White House as “adult day care” and warned Trump could start World War III—was an inflection point in the Trump presidency. It brought into the open what several people close to the president have recently told me in private: that Trump is “unstable,” “losing a step,” and “unraveling.” The conversation among some of the president’s longtime confidantes, along with the character of some of the leaks emerging from the White House

Message v. Messenger: The Trump Enigma

About 90 percent of Republican voters eventually supported the political novice Donald Trump by November 2016. Most conservatives saw him as the preferable alternative to the vision and agendas of Hillary Clinton. Perhaps most still do after nine months of his presidency. Yet almost half of the elite conservative establishment remains opposed to Republican President Trump. About a quarter of them, it seems, openly despise him. These are prominent Republican senators, think-tank writers, television pundits, op-ed columnists, and generic public intellectuals. MSNBC and CNN are now homes for disgruntled Republicans or former conservative pundits in the way that those outlets once for

Some readers have asked us about a piece by Sharon Waxman, a former reporter for The New York Times who went on to found the entertainment news website The Wrap. Ms. Waxman writes that Times editors “gutted” a story she reported in 2004 on sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein. Ms. Waxman’s piece was prompted by a Times investigation published last week that found that Mr. Weinstein had sexually harassed numerous women over nearly three decades, and that he had paid at least eight settlements to these women. As a result of the article, Mr. Weinstein was fired from his

After Hurricane Maria’s landslides and flooding further isolated this mountain town, a volunteer doctor rushed to treat diabetic Brunilda Sovilaro, found on the floor of her home, covered in insects, unable to walk, disoriented and refusing to leave. “You are sick. You are very hot,” Dr. Jorge Lopez of Orlando, Fla., told the 50-year-old woman. “Your sugar needs to be controlled. You have chest pain. It could be a problem with your heart. You need to go to the hospital.” Eventually the doctor, a Puerto Rico native who returned to the island from Florida to volunteer, persuaded Sovilaro to board an ambulance

Former President George W. Bush offered an unmistakable denunciation of Trumpism Thursday without mentioning the president by name, urging citizens to oppose threats to American democracy. “Bigotry seems emboldened. Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication,” Bush warned in remarks at the Bush Institute’s Spirit of Liberty event in New York. By chance, Bush was standing in the same spot at the Time Warner Center where former President Barack Obama made a similar plea for democracy and American leadership in late September, shortly after President Donald Trump had finished a belligerent, isolationist speech to the United Nations

George W. Bush hinted Thursday at his dissatisfaction with Donald Trump, complaining in a New York City speech that ´bullying and prejudice´ has become a caustic norm in American public life. At an event hosted by the George W. Bush Institute, the 43rd U.S. president rattled off a thinly veiled litany of complaints about the current commander-in-chief, focusing on both his tone and his isolationist policy choices. ´Our young people need positive role models,´ he said. ´Bullying and prejudice in our public life sets a national tone, provides permission for cruelty and bigotry, and compromises the moral education of children.´

"We believe everyone should stand for the national anthem. That´s an important part of our policy," Goodell said in a press conference Wednesday in New York. But Goodell said he would not commit to making a rule stating players must stand for the anthem.

Sen. John McCain exploded on Fox News’ Peter Doocy on Wednesday for asking him if he would oppose everything that President Trump asks him to do. Doocy asked Sen. McCain if his relationship with the president is “so frayed” that McCain would “not support anything that he comes to you and asks for?” McCain snapped, “Why would you say something that stupid? Why would you ask something that dumb?” “My job as a United States senator — you mean I am somehow going to behave in a way that I’m going to block everything because of some personal disagreement?” McCain said incredulously.

Damning new evidence appears to show that Hillary Clinton used her office as Secretary of State to confer benefits to Russia in exchange for millions of dollars in donations to her foundation and cash to her husband. But there’s more. It seems it was all covered up for years by the same three people who are now involved in the investigation of President Donald Trump over so-called Russian “collusion.” (Snip) What’s more, Holder was a member of the “Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States” which approved the uranium sale to the Russians in 2010.

A Massachusetts elementary school has canceled its Halloween events and is celebrating ´black and orange spirit day´ instead. Boyden Elementary School´s principal sent a letter to parents this week saying that it had decided to cancel its traditional Halloween parade on October 31 because it was ´not inclusive of all students´ and was ´difficult´ for many. Without specifying which students the parade excluded, Principal Brendan Dearborn said the school would instead hold a ´black and orange spirit day´.  Children are allowed to dress in those colors but cannot come to school in costume.

The tale of Harvey Weinstein is now a thread that has tangled its way through Hollywood, connecting women, mostly actresses, in a depressingly common way. We all seem to have a Harvey story, each one a little different but with essentially the same nauseating pattern and theme. Women were bullied, cajoled, manipulated, and worse, and then punished. My Harvey story is different, mostly because of timing. I was in one of the first films that Weinstein produced. I accepted a supporting role in a small movie based on “Loser Takes All,” the short novel by Graham Greene. I was twenty years
