The #MeToo movement accusing male celebrities of committing sexual harassment crimes is still playing out even thought we’re now in 2020, more than three years since the scandal started. The latest development came on Thursday, when a judge ruled against a motion to dismiss allegations regarding former talk show host Tavis Smiley, who was suspended by PBS after a report from an external investigator described his inappropriate behavior.
Certain horrified Canadian female spa workers can rest easy today, after beating a court case that almost forced them to pay for refusing to wax the nether regions of a trans woman on account of the fact that “she” had very male genitals. Jessica Yaniv, the infamous transgender plaintiff who sued female spa workers for “discrimination” for refusing to wax her male genitals, lost her civil rights court case this week.
Appearing on ABC’s Good Morning America on Friday to discuss his new book, Catch and Kill, journalist Ronan Farrow described how NBC News executives ordered him to cease all reporting on allegations against Harvey Weinstein in 2017. That revelation came following another bombshell in the upcoming book that Weinstein may have used knowledge of disgraced Today show host Matt Lauer’s wrongdoings to blackmail NBC into killing the story.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter published early Wednesday morning, journalist Ronan Farrow discussed revelations in his new book, Catch and Kill, that Hollywood mogul and accused sexual predator Harvey Weinstein tried to blackmail NBC News into silence about his alleged crimes by threatening to go public with similar accusations against former Today show anchor Matt Lauer.
In a new upcoming book by journalist Ronan Farrow, Catch and Kill, former NBC News employee Brooke Nevils reveals that disgraced Today show co-host Matt Lauer anally raped her in a hotel room during the 2014 winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, while NBC was covering the games. On Wednesday, all three network morning shows, including Today, covered the shocking allegations.
On Monday, both NBC’s Today show and CBS This Morning marked the two-year anniversary of the #MeToo movement by interviewing the New York Times reporters who broke the Harvey Weinstein story in the fall of 2017. However, missing from the coverage was any mention of the scandals that hit both networks just weeks following Weinstein, with the firings of Matt Lauer and Charlie Rose.
After spending a segment complaining the media wasn’t anti-Trump enough, Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter went on to assist April Ryan in blaming the President for her own controversial behavior. The CNN analyst broke her silence Sunday, giving her first interview to Stelter after her bodyguard was charged with assault for violently evicting a journalist who was covering an event Ryan was speaking at, earlier this month. Ryan defended her reputation as a free press advocate, while at the same time excusing the incident as an unfortunate result of fears for her own safety in the “Trump age,” a claim that Stelter eagerly touted.
On Monday’s Today show, co-host Savannah Guthrie talked to the cast of Showtime’s The Loudest Voice about their “damning portrayal” of late Fox News chief Roger Ailes in the new series. Guthrie’s disgraced former co-host Matt Lauer and NBC’s questionable handling of his years of alleged sexual harassment wasn’t mentioned during the lengthy segment.
The National Public Radio talk show 1A did an hour on new "restrictive" laws on abortion on Tuesday, but it was not a debate, it was a pro-abortion show. Substitute host Sasha-Ann Simons announced "we want today's conversation to focus on the impact and likely consequences of these laws. Our guests are here to answer your questions, not to debate the topic." The guests were two liberal journalists and an abortionist, who described she can "remove all the pregnancy tissue."
Peter Beinart’s March 15 article in The Atlantic, titled “Secular Democrats Are the New Normal,” seems both pleased that Democrats aren't mentioning God anymore and worried that this could hurt their electoral chances against President Donald Trump.
Dozens of prominent journalists are on their way to being sued for defamation according to Fox News. On FNC’s America’s Newsroom Tuesday, Doug McKelway reported that these journalists from just about every liberal outlet imaginable, are receiving preservation letters from Covington student Nick Sandmann’s lawyer. The letters order them to not destroy any reports or correspondences related to their coverage of the incident, which smeared the teens as racists.
It used to be that journalists didn’t need fire safety seminars to know they could get burned publishing stories that lacked facts or context. But when the original, deceptively edited video of Nathan Phillips and the Covington kids emerged, the press swaddled itself in oily rags, grabbed a Zippo and went full “Johnny Human Torch.”
