    What the LA Times does not mention is that David Boies, Al Gore's attorney during the 2000 election lawsuits, was one of these who was finding dirt against the NY Times, while already representing the times. Or something to that effect as best as I can recall from the interview with the journalist who broke the story on NPR this morning.

    Weird, entangled, and just all sort of bad boy nonsense that the Democrats find themselves entwined within.

    Certainly will be a mini-series. Hollywood loves to eat its own.

    So?
    Why must we accept that?

    Putting them all in the poor-house with a decade-long boycott sounds like a good idea to me.
    It would be the only way for any of them to learn a little humility.
    Maybe they would stop making such garbage movies & TV, at the very least.

    If you want to see Tucker Carlson say "good for her" when the Her is Rachel Maddow then you gotta see this!

    NBC is in some deep do-do over this... wow.

    YADAYADAYADA...why is ANYONE surprised that this whole mentality of tits for tat has not been alive and well - especially in a place and business such as Hollywood and the film/entertainment industry?

    From the linked photo example below;

    Just having a look at the famous Hollywood sign on the hillside says a lot about the deteriorating morels of the movie industry that originated there.

    There will be a such a long list of victims filings claims the company will go under.

    I think that you are right.
    The fact that the company entered into this kind of agreement establishes that they were aware of actions and his use of his position to harass women.
    That makes them complicit and potentially liable for those actions.
    They are probably looking for ways to liquidate and protect their personal assets now.

    Harvey Weinstein’s Media Powerhouse Comes Crashing Down

    With its co-founder on leave, an internal investigation underway, and board members resigning, can The Weinstein Company survive?
    Hours after The New York Times published a bombshell report detailing decades of alleged sexual harassment by Harvey Weinstein, the powerful Hollywood executive’s production studio hastily convened a bicoastal staff meeting to assess the damage, reassure staff, and chart the future of The Weinstein Company without its combative and hard-charging co-founder . “We are going to be O.K.,” President and C.O.O. David Glasser said, two people who attended the meeting told the Times.

    But without Weinstein, The Weinstein Company is in trouble. One-third of the company’s all-male board resigned on Friday, Weinstein announced that he would be taking an indefinite leave, effective immediately, and the remaining members of the board hired an outside law firm to conduct an internal investigation. The departed board members include Dirk Ziff, a billionaire investor; Marc Lasry, owner of the Milwaukee Bucks and chief executive of investment firm Avenue Capital Group; and Tim Sarnoff, president of production services and deputy chief executive of Technicolor. The status of Paul Tudor Jones, a billionaire hedge fund manager who is another major stakeholder in The Weinstein Company, is unknown. Glasser and Bob Weinstein, Harvey’s brother, are now in charge of the studio, which the brothers co-founded in New York City in 2005 after leaving Miramax. (Disney, which bought Miramax from the Weinsteins in 1993 for $80 million, sold the entertainment company to a group of investors in 2010 for more than $660 million.)
