Reporter Sharon Waxman said Sunday that The New York Times quashed her story exposing Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein in 2004 after he visited their newsroom to voice his displeasure.
Waxman said she "simply gagged" after reading Jim Rutenberg's "sanctimonious piece on Saturday about the 'media enablers' who kept this story from the public for decades" as the Times was one of Weinstein's enablers.
Waxman wrote in The Wrap:
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.
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.As I said Friday, Weinstein is "Mr. Hollywood." As the LA Times reports, "A 2015 survey of nearly 1,400 Oscar acceptance speeches by the website Vocativ found that Weinstein was thanked more frequently than God."
He's also one of the top Democrat power players.
This cover-up implicates tons of Hollywood celebrities and Democrat politicians alike, all of whom likely knew this was going on for 30 years, yet helped cover it up to further their careers.
This story is likely much worse than the New York Times reported and may have the power to bring Hollywood and the Democrats to their knees.
