Huffington Post: NBC News Squashed Harvey Weinstein Story, Despite Multiple On-Camera Victim Interviews and Other Powerful Evidence

John Sexton digests their story at Hot Air.

They had the audiotape the NYPD recorded of Weinstein admitting to one of the assaults, too, which is itself enough for a story.

But NBC kept refusing to run it.

And then, when the New York Times broke it, they were the only network news channel to not cover it.

More: A former Olympian gymnast says that when she wrote a book about abuse of underage athletes in the gymnastics world, NBC tried to "bury" her story as well.


Her book was published in 2012. NBC bought the rights to broadcast the Olympics in 2011 through 2020. (They also already had the rights to the Summer Games since 1988 and the Winter Games since 2002.)

40 The story is out ... some will try to bury it or play it down. Maybe a few will try to regain a little integrity by being more aggressive.

But mostly, this story is the one they gleefully laid on Trump for the last year, even though Trump afaik, just went for those that were "asking for it". So now something 10x worse than the story they gave major air time ... for years ... any coverage of truth (which is emerging despite them) only shows they've been liars the whole time.

burn it down ... the MFM and Whoreywood. They maybe killed the "feminist" movement with it, because their leading "feminists" first knelt for the King Misogynist Pig. They are Harvey's Harem.

I wish I knew more actual psychology and not just hey I've read the DSM and expert psych reports so I'm a Super Expert now because the false panics over, say, Satanic Ritual Abuse read to me like the negative of the actual horrors that get reported but covered up.

Predators is a good word for these slime. One thing that is universal in the natural world or human created is they go where their victims are.

The GOPe should work equally hard to make the Democrat-Media complex own the freakshow that is Hollywood.

All that said, given the length, depth and breadth of the abuse of children and young-teen types that (I think it can now safely be said) evidently occurs it's not terribly surprising that Planet Hollywood is a toxic basket case of dysfunction. No?

The reason the leftist Harveywood folks hate conservatives and Republicans so much is that is a safe target for their real hate--hate for the people they work with day after day who abuse and degrade them.

Also, a dash of "my tribe vs. your tribe. And my tribe just HAS to be the good guys. ('Cause if they're not, what does that say about me?)"

Are not tits entitled to the sweat of their own brow? Can they not be respected for an honest day's work? *American flag starts waving in the background* For too long Tits have been marginalized and denigrated for their unknowing effect on the male population. Suffering ridicule for the mere act of existing! *music rises*

Well, that's not America!

----------------------------------------------------

Campouts are going to be free-for-alls, with bad leaders going after kids AND kids themselves going after kids.

My personal opinion is that the Boy Scouts looked at how many members they've lost since they went all SJW - didn't the LDS church pull out and start their own program? And anybody who has had boys in Boy Scouts and girls in Girl Scouts knows that the actual Boy Scout programming is far better, so they're going after the girls as members to shore up their membership.

The GS programming is all SJW all the time. Close relationship with Planned Parenthood. And the GS started this whole thing by outsourcing their older girl programming to the Boy Scouts anyway (Sea Scouts, Venture or Adventure Programming).

Posted by: Insomniac - The Left Hates You and Wants You to Die at October 12, 2017 02:52 PM (NWiLs)



Yup, that.

There are repeated instances of abuse being known and reported in school districts and churches and athletic programs and on and on and on where the people higher up in the chain either ignore it or work actively to cover up the crimes.

Then you have the false accusations about absolutely ludicrous and impossible events where the people are hounded out and lives ruined. The day school cases. The false rape accusation. The Title IX insanity.

There's something there that I can't quite grasp or articulate about how the suppression of the truth in one area will manifest itself in another area but in a warped way.

It's probably just me slamming a Jungian view onto it to try to make sense of humanity because hahaha people make sense hahahaha.

His real name: Warren Wilhelm. His parents were accused of being Communists in the 1950s. He's a red diaper baby.

Does anyone else see this as giving bad Scout leaders a wider range of victims?

I'm guessing the main way this long march will work out will be this: there will at first be sex segregated troops, which will call for female scout leaders. But soon these female scout leaders will demand promotions to higher and higher positions within the organizations hierarchy.

Then the activists will able to do real damage. They'll be able to allocate the majority of the organization's resources to the female troops, and hobble or humiliate the male troops (remember Gen. Peggy Combs?). Someday the chief executive of the BSA will be a female, an historic first.

There's audio of the Weinperv praising Bill Clinton at an event they attended. He speechified that he "learned so much from (Preezy Bentdick)".

218 the powerful thing about the Weinstein exposure ... is that it puts a face on the MSM/Hollywood hypocrisy.

The left learned that Alinsky tactic by choosing Rush, or Palin ... they mock them in buffoonish (fake) ways, but people need a person, to personify the guile of the MSM. So a feminist is slamming conservatives, she can be labeled just one of Harvey's Harem, Will Suck for Roles. Or whatever tag ends up with the most impact, in three worlds or less.

It will become part of the lexicon, backed with evidence. That makes it more powerful than the lame "Romney's binders full of women". Romney actually helped those women ... instead of you know ... raping them. The play on words alone is effective, but much better if based in reality.

Bela Lugosi, or whatever his name was.

I thought to myself "self, he's carrying them around like they're babies, and these girls, in spite of looking like boys, are indeed, girls. Teenage girls."

True, his DNA is half-Italian. But his attitude, his orientation, his values are diametrically opposed to the prevailing Italian-American ethos of American patriotism and loving their adopted home and its traditional values.

The reason the Italo-American groups called him out as fake is that he wants to change the name of Columbus Circle and remove the statue. I think it was actually a woman who ran against him who first levelled the FAKE ITALIAN charge. She said "He doesn't have the heart and soul of an Italian" And she's right. He has the heart and soul of a red diaper baby.

FWIW, neither my Troop nor my Pack receive much in the way of resources from the national organization or, for that matter, our Council. If anything, they are taking resources from US, in the form of the rechartering fees, exorbitant prices on badges/books/etc, and forced participation in their various fundraisers.

Hell, my Troop was forced to allow a representative to pitch fundraising to the parents while their boys were in the other room in their meeting. Basically a very hard sell high pressure talk trying to shame these parents into "giving." We already have quarterly dues and the Scouts do one fundraiser a year to pay for stuff the BSA or Council won't. Not that they pay for a lot anyway. Even the camps are fee-based.

That was a good post by Ringo and part of what has me pondering this.

The issue is that there is no direct correlation between, say, abuse of women involved with US Gymnastics and Jackie Coakley making up Haven Monahan. It's different areas of the country and different time periods.

What I'm flailing towards is why is it that people will believe the outlandish (there were tunnels under the day care where we sacrificed animals!) but not the mundane horror (the nice guy doctor was molesting the girls or the priest and boys or whatever). Is it some kind of unconscious release valve? Again, there are huge problems with that thought since the people who are reacting to the insane are not the ones who are suppressing the real horrors.

Now throw in all the examples above of actual police problems with fake police problems and there's something there though I can't pin it down.

It's weird right now. Short answer is they're not completely disassociated right now. The LDS Church has said they want to make their own program. My local program is shut down. Some local programs still stand, with the caveat that they get to dictate their membership. The Church will shut down any groups if someone tries to force membership they're not willing to allow.

Is it some kind of unconscious release valve? Again, there are huge problems with that thought since the people who are reacting to the insane are not the ones who are suppressing the real horrors.

Now throw in all the examples above of actual police problems with fake police problems and there's something there though I can't pin it down.

Ordinarily I would write their actions off to incompetence, or the usual corruption - but they are all acting as if they are truly terrified of this story come out.

Why? What do they really know?

It used to be the other way around which is as terrible.

281 Regarding the resources of the Boy Scouts/Girl Scouts - the resources are whatever the individual troop/pack raises themselves. The national organizations take a HUGE cut of the products sold - cookies, popcorn, etc. The girls/boys troops keep pennies on the dollar quite literally.

The heart of both organizations is the willingness of parents - moms & dads - to volunteer their time to be troop leaders, den mothers, etc. That's the traditional, middle class model of scouting.

The new model of expanding scouting to underserved communities means hiring staff to organize and lead troops in minority communities. Parents aren't involved. It costs the national organizations a lot of money to deliver scouting to these troops, money that comes from the traditional troops selling product and paying for their membership.

Plus the leadership at the very top is paid millions, just like any other "charity".

309 Now we know why Paltrow is constantly steam-cleaning her hoo-ha.

She can't get the Weinstein out of it.

Posted by: Adirondack Patriot at October 12, 2017 02:59 PM (wo3jg)

___________________

Paltrow was signed, at 22, to a contract to star in the movie "Emma" for Miramax. She then met with Miramax boss Harvey Weinstein, who sexually propositioned her. She told her then-boyfriend, Brad Pitt, about Harvey's behavior, and Pitt confronted him about it. Weinstein then called Paltrow and screamed at her (according to Paltrow) for about an hour, warning her that she'd better never again tell anyone what went on between the two of them.

"Emma" came out in 1996. A couple of years later, Paltrow was signed to star in another Miramax production, "Shakespeare in Love," for which Miramax heavily promoted Paltrow for an Oscar. After she won, there were photographs all over the place of Paltrow hugging and kissing Weinstein.

We know that Weinstein's MO was to sexually proposition these young women, and then tell them that if they did what he wanted sexually, he'd cast them in good roles and help their careers. If they refused, as the model who wore the wire for the NYC cops did, then he'd tell them that they would never, ever hear from him again.

Some of them, like Heather Graham and Mira Sorvino, did refuse Weinstein's sexual demands, and they didn't get any Miramax roles after that.

Gwyneth Paltrow says that she also refused Weinstein's sexual demands, yet she not only got more Miramax roles after Emma, but the studio went all out to get her an Oscar for Shakespeare in Love.

The Italian actress Asia Argento said her experience with Weinstein went like this: he demanded she massage him, then he forced oral sex on her, over her protests. She was disgusted by him, but she went on to have consensual sexual contacts with him for years, because she was afraid he would ruin her career if she didn't.

In Paltrow's recent statements, she appears to be trying to rationalize her behavior with Weinstein, while not actually admitting it. She says she was "petrified" of being fired from Emma, she was young, she was naive, she was scared, etc.

Argento deserves credit for her willingness to tell the ugly truth about what happened with her and Weinstein, because that could not have been easy to admit. I just wish some of these other women had as much backbone as Argento does. They would be doing themselves, and their daughters, a favor.

Paltrow is saying now that everything she does, she does for her daughter Apple. If she really doesn't want her daughter to ever have to face the kind of abuse she faced, she should tell the whole truth about what happened to her, as ugly and embarrassing as it may be.

Paltrow is not one of them. In fact, she not only finished Emma, but went back. Also, did a dominatrix photo layout for his magazine. So yea, all the stuff you said plus more.

She is a vile, nasty piece of work IMO.

I have to say, morons, that I would have not, no way, put up with that sweaty and smelly toad in his robe. There would be blood.

Those who lie that they did not know are likely (well, except The Hag) to have gone along with this disgusting troll for their fame. See who did not know or took days to comment. Long list.

If you can find the photo of Weinstink throwing double middle fingers to the media yesterday it is worth it. I think his little jaunt to Europe was stopped by the DOJ and FBI and he is beyond po'd that he had to go to freaking Arizona with the peasants. I am thinking he will try to escape to Mexico in a white Bronco.

312 I also want to say, for the eleventy-billionth time, how much I am enjoying the Trump Era. I love that man. Think of all he has done since January 20th vs the babbling Buhrot O'kiedoky. Winning!

313 She is a vile, nasty piece of work IMO.

I understand why you feel that way, but I do have a little sympathy for Paltrow. Not as much as I do for women like Argento, who told the truth, or women like Heather Graham and Mira Sorvino, who turned Weinstein down, knowing what he could (and would) do to their careers.

When this thing started with Weinstein, Paltrow was young, and she was ambitious, and she did what she thought she had to do to keep her dreams of a movie career alive. Argento did the same thing. It must have been humiliating and disgusting. But I imagine that Paltrow, a self-professed daddy's girl, wanted to please her father and make him proud, and she was probably thrilled to get signed to do the Emma movie. When Weinstein threatened to take that big role away from her, and destroy her career before it had even begun, that must have been devastating.

So I can kind of understand why the young Paltrow did what she did. What I can't understand is why now, at age 45, she still won't tell the truth about what happened. Yes, it would be embarrassing, but people survive embarrassment. Argento did. And it's not as if Paltrow is planning to make more movies. She has already said she's retiring from movies to concentrate on her business, and at her age, she's not likely to be offered that many more film roles anyway. So why not do the right thing?

He does comment here, albeit infrequently.

315 282 the Truthers I ran into were babbling about "nano-thermite." They've probably moved onto photon torpedos or kinetic strikes from orbit by now...

316 No one brings up Jennifer Lawrence and her Oscar.

Came from no where. Mediocre at best.

I forget her comment, shocked or something. Right.

Alex, maybe it's that people can't bear to look head-on at the wrong that's close to them--say, a husband who's got roving eyes--and so they latch onto, say, the biohazards of radio waves or the lack of this vitamin in this foodstuff. You see bad women's magazines redirecting anger in those ways.

319 I believe it won't mean a thing. This will all blow over as so many scandals do with little to no real change.

The pervs and maybe even the central perv will be back doing their thing in less than 2 years.

Only long term prison would shock Hollywood enough to make changes and that just won't happen with the money at their fingertips.

Smoke and mirrors "investigations" full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing.

320 Gwenyth Paltrow's dad, Bruce Paltrow, was a big time TV producer, most famously of the hospital drama "St. Elsewhere", on which Howie Mandel and Denzel Washington got their career starts. The late Stephen Furst, who played Flounder in Animal House, also played a doctor on that show.

Paltrow's mother is veteran actress Blythe Danner.

So mom and dad didn't warn her about Dirty Harvey?

Or did they acquiesce?

321 Hey, didn't Chris Hansen used to do a series on NBC called "To Catch A Predator"? The premise of which was that guys who were looking to have sex with underaged children would be tricked into coming to a house where they would be met by Hansen, and asked "WTF are you doing?" And then they suddenly stopped showing that series. Maybe Hansen was getting too close to some shady dealings at the network.

322 No you don't understand....Harvey is a DEMOCRAT. He has been working soooo hard to change the world. It is exhausting. He has....special needs.
