The New York Times, October 10, 2017
Another powerful businessman in the entertainment industry has toppled from his pedestal in disgrace over accusations of sexual misconduct from a plethora of women in the entertainment industry, some very well known and powerful in their own rights. Harvey Weinstein joins the parade of entertainment moguls who have been accused of long-term sexual harassment of and/or assaults on women. Former Fox News titans Bill O'Reilly and the now-deceased Roger Ailes lost their high-flying jobs earlier this year over similar charges, and were followed out the door by Fox Co-President Bill Shine, who it was felt did not do enough to stop the harassment. We've also watched the long-playing saga of Bill Cosby being accused of and prosecuted for sexual harassment and assault; his trial ended in a mistrial but apparently another one has been scheduled to begin next spring. And now The New York Times reports that two more highly-placed men are facing sexual misconduct allegations; one is an Oscar-nominated screenwriter.
