    "How Top NBC Executives Quashed The Bombshell Harvey Weinstein Story"

    "Farrow scored his first major reporting coup in January: an on-camera interview with actress Rose McGowan during which she accused Weinstein of sexually assaulting her when she was 23 years old. The Times has reported that McGowan settled her sexual assault claim with Weinstein for $100,000 in 1997. Ultimately, McGowan withdrew her permission for NBC News to use the footage after she’d received legal threats from Weinstein.In March, Farrow obtained audio in which Weinstein admits to having sexually assaulted Italian model Ambra Battilana Gutierrez. The audio was recorded a day after Gutierrez had gone to the New York Police Department and told officers that Weinstein had groped her breasts and attempted to put a hand up her skirt."

    With the revelations that top new execs at NBC spiked this story, which would have effectually let Harvey continue raping young girls looking for a break, I'm surprised that hosts like Maddow still work there. Apparently, they support their management's decision. Or are they just greedy?

    Why so?

    Default How NBC quashed the Weinstein rape story..

    Funny exchange between Anthony BourdainVerified account and clintoon hacks..

    http://freebeacon.com/culture/clinto...stein-accuser/

    And I have to say, Hillary's interview with Fareed Zakaria was shameful in its deflection and its disingenuousness.

    Why are you obsessed about making this about politics. It transcends politics and everyone should be united in their condemnation for this man.

    There is a lot of rich and powerful men with all sorts of political views that use their wealth and influence to get away with the things we normal joes wouldnt. It has zero to do with politics. They spread their money around, they make promises, they get people beholden to them. It has always happened and always will.

    What is amazing is how fast Weinsteins fall from grace was once the story broke.

    In the UK we have a child abuse scandal of apocalyptic proportions, and the more we find out the more we realize that paedophiles had infiltrated every aspect of society and government. We have what seems like ever entertainer from the 70s and 80s involved, politicians on both sides and even previous Prime Ministers implicated. Jimmy Saville one of the most despicable and reprehensible human beings to breathe used his influence and wealth to abuse thousands of children. It was not politics that allowed this to happen but human greed and fear of losing their positions.

    Just wish for once we could see where the real tragedy is and it isn't left versus right here.

    Ask Rose Mcgowan..

    Looks less like NBC quashed then like McGowan took a settlement that most likely included non-disclosure.
    Self appointed forum Mark Zuckerberg, feel free to ask me if any news story is real or fake.

    If Hillary wins, this story never makes the light of day.. Harvey has been a big leftist for years, and everyone knew what he was doing, but they wanted his money. And it's just like Bill Clinton, so the left has a record of supporting serial abusers who are powerful men.

    Ask Rose Mcgowan..
    You ask Rose Mcgowan why she settled for some money and didn't prosecute.

    You ask Rose Mcgowan why she told NBC they couldn't use the footage after Weinstein threatened legal action.

    You ask all of the women that didn't report Trump when he was sexually assaulting and intimidating them just like Weinstein why they didn't go after him.

    This is a societal problem that we have, not something to be turned into a moronic left/right issue.
