Spotlight won an Oscar for best picture in 2016 for its portrayal of the clergy sexual abuse scandal in the Archdiocese of Boston. At least nine of those associated with this film have worked with Harvey Weinstein, yet eight have said nothing about his sexual abuse, and all nine refuse to indict Hollywood the way they have the Catholic Church.
It seems like wherever Anita Hill came up in this week’s conversations about Harvey Weinstein, the liberal media kept up that annoying tactic of skipping from Hill’s 1991 allegations directly to Donald Trump’s Access Hollywood remarks, dug up weeks before the 2016 election. Allegations against Bill Clinton don’t come up. Only allegations against Republicans are admitted in their fake-news history lesson.
There’s no such thing as a participation trophy for the left. So they have to make something up. The Women’s Media Center (WMC), founded by lefties Gloria Steinem and Jane Fonda, created an award this year for the sole purpose of having something to give to Hillary Clinton: the Wonder Woman Award
Hollywood, California is considered the entertainment capital of the world with characters and names such as Walt Disney, Audrey Hepburn, Mickey Mouse, and The Loony Tunes belonging the pantheons of cinema. There are any number of equivalents in television, even if some were more opinionated than others. At the end of the day, Hollywood has largely succeeded due to its mission of entertaining people.
You knew liberals in the media would get there eventually. As the sex abuse scandal enveloping lefty Hollywood titan Harvey Weinstein continues to grow, CNN’s Sally Kohn on Thursday sought to shift the blame away from Weinstein and his funding of fellow Democrats Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. In a piece for CNN.com, she wondered, “But should Weinstein in part blame Donald Trump -- for whipping up Hollywood against sexual assault in the first place?”
Project Runway’s Thursday, October 19 episode, “Driving Miss Unconventional,” challenged its designers to use unconventional safety materials such as seatbelts, hard hats and reflectors, to create unique creations. The theme was to “think outside of your safety zone and deliver looks that do not conform to the rules.”
As false news promoted by the establishment press has multiplied in the two years since Donald Trump declared his presidential candidacy, it's easy to forget that an equal if not greater media offense concerns genuine news and previous historical events that these outlets refuse to report or recognize. In two prime examples during the past several days, the Los Angeles Times deliberately omitted former President Bill Clinton's sexual offenses in articles relating to the explosive revelations of Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein's history of alleged serial harassment and assaults.
It’s rare to find a conservative in Hollywood. It’s even more rare to find one that isn’t completely shunned for their beliefs.
The media is quick to forget scandals about their favorites. They ignored Harvey Weinstein for decades, even after his accusers went to the police. And now they are downplaying former talk show host David Letterman’s sex scandal as he’s up for a big award.
Someone in Hollywood actually pointed out that actors and actresses have no room to criticize Trump after ignoring predator Harvey Weinstein for three decades.
Since the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault story broke in the New York Times on October 5, the usually aggressive, satirical Onion has avoided bashing the fallen studio exec (and prominent Democrat). The Onion managed just one humor piece. And that story really wasn’t about attacking Weinstein. The headline redirected attention to sexism in general.
Hollywood, the same corrupt place that let sexual predators like Harvey Weinstein run amok for three decades, is here to tell you that the NRA is evil.
