The next time a Hollywood liberal elite like Matt Damon or Russell Crowe lecture anyone on basically anything at all, remember this...  The NYT was going to expose Weinstein for sexual misconduct against women back in 2004, Damon, Crowe, and others came to his rescue, pressuring the NYT not to do so, effectively covering up decades of crimes against women.

 

ENABLERS: Matt Damon, Russell Crowe Helped Kill 2004 NYT Weinstein Expose

 

According to former New York Times reporter Sharon Waxman, an exposé on Democratic mega-donor and top Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual harassment was squelched in 2004 after the Times was pressured by powerful people, including actors Matt Damon and Russell Crowe. The alleged serial sexual harasser also just happened to be a huge advertiser with the Times at the time the story was extinguished.

"In 2004, I was still a fairly new reporter at The New York Times when I got the green light to look into oft-repeated allegations of sexual misconduct by Weinstein. It was believed that many occurred in Europe during festivals and other business trips there," explained Waxman at The Wrap.

 

Traveling to Rome, Italy, to investigate the allegations, the reporter tracked down Fabrizio Lombardo, the head of Miramax Italy, a man with reportedly "no film experience … his real job was to take care of Weinstein’s women needs, among other things."

"As head of Miramax Italy in 2003 and 2004, Fabrizio Lombardo was paid $400,000 for less than a year of employment," said Waxman. Other sources told her Lombardo organized evenings with "Russian escorts."

Lombardo, of course, denied all allegations concerning Weinstein and his job to handle such matters at the time.

 

"I also tracked down a woman in London who had been paid off after an unwanted sexual encounter with Weinstein. She was terrified to speak because of her non-disclosure agreement, but at least we had evidence of a pay-off," she continued.

Despite all this, she says: "The story I reported never ran."

 

Who helped to suppress the story? According to Waxman, Weinstein himself, a heavy Times advertiser at the time, and actors Matt Damon and Russell Crowe:

After intense pressure from Weinstein, which included having Matt Damon and Russell Crowe call me directly to vouch for Lombardo and unknown discussions well above my head at the Times, the story was gutted.

I was told at the time that Weinstein had visited the newsroom in person to make his displeasure known. I knew he was a major advertiser in the Times, and that he was a powerful person overall.

"The story was stripped of any reference to sexual favors or coercion and buried on the inside of the Culture section, an obscure story about Miramax firing an Italian executive," claims Waxman.

According to Waxman, Jon Landman, the Times' culture editor in 2004, "thought the story was unimportant" and asked Waxman "why it mattered."

“He’s not a publicly elected official,” he told me. I explained, to no avail, that a public company would certainly have a problem with a procurer on the payroll for hundreds of thousands of dollars. At the time, Disney told me they had no idea Lombardo existed.

"I was devastated after traveling to two countries and overcoming immense challenges to confirm at least part of the story that wound up running last week, more than a decade later," concludes Waxman. "I had met in person with a woman who said she’d been paid off for an unwanted sexual encounter and thus proved she existed."

 

As reported by Daily Wire's Emily Zanotti, a Times report on Weinstein finally came to light on Thursday, some 13 years later.

Weinstein allegedly asked for bizarre sexual favors, such as having actresses watch him shower, in exchange for career advancement. Zanotti reports:

In at least one case, a female employee claimed Weinstein "badgered" her into allowing him to give her a naked massage, leaving her "crying" and "distraught." In another, Weinstein reportedly told a female colleague to meet him for breakfast at a hotel, but then redirected her to his room, where he appeared in a bathrobe and asked her to watch him shower.

Such encounters led to several lawsuits, eight of which were settled out of court for millions of dollars.

Creepy.  At the end I was expecting a line about him asking women to piss on his chest.  Fuck Damon, Crowe, and the hollywood libs.  It's all about cause, as long as it makes them feel important and is in their best interests.  They have no right to pass judgement on anyone.

The hypocrisy of the left never ceases to amaze.  Such compassion and caring.....until it involves one of their own.

What is so amazing about douches like this is that those who usually have no right to cast stones are almost always the first to judge the rest of us.

Of course you would defend or deflect.  Women were systematically violated by this prick for decades, said pricking holding enormous power in Hollywood, and you can only talk about Trump.  At least you're consistent - consistently low IQ.

You wouldn't know a fact if one fell on your face.  The story isn't about Trump, it's about a Hollywood exec who sexually exploited women for decades and the same hypocrites that preach morality to the rest of us helped to cover up.

 

But your sexual obsession with Trump, as always, is getting the best of you.

There's a difference.  The whole "grab them by the pussy" thing, that's just male locker room type talk.  I've said things about women in my lifetime to other guys, because it's just guy talk.  That is a hell of a lot different than Weinstein trying to trade movie roles for sex and preying on young women so desperate to make it in hollywood that they'd fuck him just to try to get their foot in the door.  We're hearing a ton about women who supposedly wouldn't cave to Weinstein, but we aren't hearing about the likely thousands that spread for him thinking they were gonna get a role only to later find out they had been played.  Weinstein is a predator using deceit and his position in an exploitative manner.  That's not even in the same universe as Trump's words you brought up.
