Interesting, isn’t it? According to The New York Times, powerful movie mogul and frequent Democratic donor Harvey Weinstein paid off sexual harassment accusers for years, and yet we’ve heard barely a peep from the liberal media. Yes, as The New York Times tells it, Weinstein has allegedly been pushing unwanted sexual advances on young actresses for decades – but if you only follow the mainstream media, you wouldn’t know that at all.
According to The Gray Lady herself,
[a]n investigation by The New York Times found previously undisclosed allegations against Mr. Weinstein stretching over nearly three decades, documented through interviews with current and former employees and film industry workers, as well as legal records, emails and internal documents from the businesses he has run, Miramax and the Weinstein Company.
First of all, excellent job to the crack team of reporters at The New York Times. Secondly, a hearty “boo” to the liberal media who refuses to cover this explosive story. Have you no shame? It would be a refreshing change of pace if the ivory tower elites chose to deal with this story in the same manner as The New York Times, which, again, as far as I can tell, isn’t some famous bastion of liberal thought. I mean, look at this:
In a statement to The Times on Thursday afternoon, Mr. Weinstein said: “I appreciate the way I’ve behaved with colleagues in the past has caused a lot of pain, and I sincerely apologize for it. Though I’m trying to do better, I know I have a long way to go.”
Not only did The Times manage to report on this story in painstaking detail, but they actually coaxed a statement out of Mr. Weinstein himself. And the libs? Not a peep. Need I say more?
The silence from the liberal media is absolutely deafening… almost as deafening as the excellent report by that classic paper of record, The New York Times.
