REMEMBER THE NAMES

By Pete Moore On October 11th, 2017

REPORTS The Guardian, at 1313 today, so possibly not quite correct this evening:

When the Guardian contacted 20 high-profile actors and directors who have worked with the producer, many failed to respond

The list of industry figures thus far remaining silent includes a number of male directors, such as the Oscar-nominated Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, Inglourious Basterds, the Hateful Eight) and David O Russell (Silver Linings Playbook, The Fighter, Flirting With Disaster), who have both made numerous movies with Weinstein.

The liberal film-maker Michael Moore, currently working with Weinstein on a documentary about Donald Trump, also did not respond to a request for comment.

The Guardian contacted representatives of actors who have starred in Weinstein films, including Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Colin Firth, Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Daniel Day-Lewis, Russell Crowe, George Clooney and Ewan McGregor, along with the directors Tarantino, Russell, Ryan Coogler, Tom Hooper, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Michael Moore, Rob Marshall, Robert Pulcini, Garth Davis, Doug McGrath, John Madden, Simon Curtis, Kevin Williamson, Martin Scorsese, John Hillcoat and John Wells.

None initially commented, despite the fact that many have been vocal about gender equality in the industry and other social justice causes.

Let’s give them time. Some of these luminaries might be busy preparing a blistering defenestration of Weinstein. But not too much time. An agent can knock out a few lines in a minute, which is all a reporter wants. And while we wait for their responses, remember that many of these people tell us how to live our lives.

  1. Not responding to the Guardian doesn’t mean no response. Some on the list have in fact responded. But there was definitely a delay for many.

  2. Phantom, on October 11th, 2017 at 1:35 AM Said:

    Was it put the multiple accusations of rape against tromp in perspective?

    Pete seems highly obsessed by this scum of the earth Weinstein. Anyone want to speculate how many posts Pete Moore will make about Weinstein? Five? 10?

    Self fulfilling prophecy Phantom?

  3. Millions of Weinstein posts, not one on Roger Ailes by these guys.

  4. Who’s Roger Ailes?

  5. https://www.thedailybeast.com/fox-and-friends-hypocrites-slam-late-night-hosts-weinstein-silence

    Fake News Fakers Feign Concern about Weinstein

  6. Any comments from James Woods, James Cann, Clint Eastwwod, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Juliette Lewis, Hilary Duff and the host of other Republican / Conservative actors that worked with MiraMax Pictures Pete?

    It’s hilarious that now on ATW Hollywood sleb’s opinions are being listened to 🙂

  7. Re Ailes, who begat Fox News

    Some may find this of interest

  8. https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/curtis-houck/2017/10/09/ex-nyt-reporter-i-had-weinstein-story-2004-celebrities-nyt-execs

    On Sunday night, The Wrap’s Sharon Waxman expanded on something she noted in passing during a Thursday interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper that, as a New York Times reporter in 2004, she had uncovered allegations of sexual misconduct by Harvey Weinstein but was thwarted by The Times itself.

    Despite “traveling to two countries and overcoming immense challenges to confirm at least part of the story that wound up running last week,” Weinstein’s advertising presence gutted Waxman’s work, along with phone calls from Russell Crowe and Matt Damon.

    Waxman explained that she “traveled to Rome and tracked down the man who held the plum position of running Miramax Italy” and had learned that then-Miramax Italy head Fabrizio Lombardo “had no film experience and his real job was to take care of Weinstein’s women needs, among other things.”

    “I also tracked down a woman in London who had been paid off after an unwanted sexual encounter with Weinstein. She was terrified to speak because of her non-disclosure agreement, but at least we had evidence of a pay-off,” Waxman added.

    So iot looks as though the ‘mainstream’ suppressed the story on Weinstein for decades, but it has been released now. Weinstein must have done something bad – that doesn’t include rape and sexual harassment of shiksas – and is now being thrown under the bus. I wonder what he has done. Has he annoyed Israel?

  9. Allan

    Why didn’t your ” new media ” report it?

  10. Rupert Murdoch controls both Fox News and 20th Century Fox – a movie studio

    He would know Weinstein exceptionally well.

    Why didn’t Murdoch / Fox News report on this?

    You fakes condemn those that did report the story while praising those who didn’t report the story.

    Fake fake fake.

  11. Paul McMahon –

    You don’t need to ask what a conservative thinks of degenerate wrong’uns like Weinstein. “Conservative” conveys all you need to know.

  12. The East Coast Jewish take!

    http://www.tabletmag.com/scroll/246724/the-specifically-jewy-perviness-of-harvey-weinstein

    The disgraced film producer is a character straight out of Philip Roth, playing out his revenge fantasies on the Goyim

  13. Phantom – I’ve just shown evidence to the effect that the NYT and other outlets knew of Weinstein’s ways FOR DECADES. WHY DIDN’T THEY REPORT IT??

    As for why the new media didn’t do so, the new media are not involved with such dirt and, if they had reported it, the NYT would have attacked the reporters on behalf of Weinstein. Here’s what I mean…..

    https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/weinstein-sexual-harassment-allegation_us_59d7ea3de4b046f5ad984211

    Harvey Weinstein once trapped a woman in the hallway of a restaurant that was closed to the public and masturbated in front of her until he ejaculated, she says. The accusation comes a day after Weinstein was the subject of a bombshell New York Times report that revealed that he has settled at least eight sexual harassment claims.

    The incident took place a decade ago, according to Lauren Sivan, who at the time was a news anchor on a local cable channel in New York, Long Island 12. She says the experience left her shocked, and that while she told friends privately what happened, she remained quiet because she was in a long-term relationship and fearful of the power that Weinstein wielded in the media.

    This has been known about in those elevated (((media))) and (((Hollywood))) circles – yet it’s being revealed now. Why now?

    Oh yeah – the ((( ))) around ‘media’. Let’s take the UK as an example as the US has already been conclusively jewed…..

    Hat-tip to nilus at the Irish Savant

  14. They should have reported it earlier.

    Yes that is true.

  15. Rightworld just can’t get enough of this story. It ticks so many boxes, liberal Hollywood, Democrat Hollywood, Jewish Hollywood, hypoctritical luvvies, yada yada yada.

    Pete Moore doesn’t play up the Jewish aspect (just slyly hints at it) but with Jew-hater Allan we get the full works.

    The only fly in the ointment for these new moral crusaders (they had no problem with Trump’s pussy-grabbing) is that the story was broken not by Breitbart or Fox but by that hated liberal newspaper the New York Times. Just shows that nothing is ever perfect guys, but you’ll get over it.

  16. I wonder how long Pussy-grabber Trump will be able to stay out of this one, despite his, er, past issues with women. His deafening Twitter silence so far is truly remarkable for self-restraint. Surely it can’t last?

  17. You don’t need to ask what a conservative thinks of degenerate wrong’uns like Weinstein. “Conservative” conveys all you need to know.

    Indeed Pete. I’m sure Roger Ailes and Ted Heath would agree.

    Pete knows that he just needs to make the snowballs and the usual suspects will throw them for him.

    Nail on head Peter.

  18. There is no standard or line Trump’s defenders can draw that does not implicate themselves. Perhaps Hollywood should have been more alert to the outward signs of Weinstein’s predatory pattern, but it certainly turned against him once his behavior was revealed. Perhaps Hillary Clinton should have made a statement in hours rather than days after the news broke, but Trump’s supporters have gone a full year without denouncing Trump, and clearly have no intention of ever doing so. Fox News was created and shaped by a sexual predator, whose on-air talent have continued to defend him. And when Roger Ailes became too obviously guilty for his network to stand behind him, Trump’s campaign took him in.

    http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2017/10/why-is-trump-so-excited-about-the-harvey-weinstein-scandal.html

  19. The number or posts Pete has put up on this story makes it seem like it’s an event on the magnitude of 9/11. It’s quite funny to watch the great but simple entertainment he is getting from this. Is it out of his great concern for the plight of Hollywood actresses. yeah right, of course it is 😉

  20. The Guardian contacted representatives of actors who have starred in Weinstein films

    Did no Republican / Conservative actor/esses work with Miramax films?

    But then again, what else would you expect from the fake news, liberal, Commie Guardian?

  21. Perhaps Hollywood should have been more alert to the outward signs of Weinstein’s predatory pattern, but it certainly turned against him once his behavior was revealed.

    Nonsense of course. They all knew and they all stayed quiet. Even the awards committees knew.

    The same mindset knew about Rotherham and covered it up. It knew about Cologne and covered it up. It knows about Sweden and covers it up. The only time libs get angry is when we talk about the rape cultures they incubate and cover up.

    A little soul searching over there would be welcome.

  22. Pete

    Which publication broke the story, please?

  23. Did no Republican / Conservative actor/esses work with Miramax films?

    Possibly, but liberal Hollywood isn’t yet ready to accept openly conservative actors.

  24. //I wonder how long Pussy-grabber Trump will be able to stay out of this one, despite his, er, past issues with women. His deafening Twitter silence so far is truly remarkable for self-restraint. Surely it can’t last?//

    LOL!!

  25. Possibly, but liberal Hollywood isn’t yet ready to accept openly conservative actors

    Surely. Like Roger Ailes and Ted Heath I’m sure James Woods, James Cann, Clint Eastwwod, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Juliette Lewis, Hilary Duff et all would agree.

  26. I see that Weinstein has done a Polanski, fleeing to Europe to avoid prosecution “seek treatment”.

    Shows what he thinks of Obamacare.

  27. A little soul searching over there would be welcome.

    But of course none is called for the supporters of pussy-grabber Trump. Their guy gets a bye-ball, as always.

  28. Libs must have had such a high opinion of Trump that a year later they’re still not over his locker room talk.

    Jackasses –

    Let me do your thinking for you again. It’s ain’t just Weinstein. This goes way beyond him. For three decades every big shot in Hollywood and the lib media (I know, most of the media) covered up mega-abuse, but it’s not just him. And it’s not just abuse of young women. It goes darker than that. These are very bad people.

  29. So who broke the story?

    And if everyone knew about it, why didn’t Cernovich/Drudge/Infowars/Fox News/ Daily Caller / Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity/Breitbart report the story? Why did they sit on it?

  30. Friendship, filialism acquaintance and social empathy are the greatest sources of sexual/criminal protectionism, not any particular political ideology. The same defensive denialism is found in all circles of people.

  31. For three decades every big shot in Hollywood and the lib media (I know, most of the media) covered up mega-abuse, but it’s not just him. And it’s not just abuse of young women. It goes darker than that. These are very bad people.

    Pete.

    If this was common knowledge in Hollywood why did the John Voight’s and Charlton Heston’s not take it to the Rupert Murdoch’s of this world?

  32. Phantom, Paul –

    I’ve told you, conservatives don’t mix in those circles. Not openly-conservative people anyway, of course.

  33. Pete 944

    I ain’t buyin’ that.

    Limousine limousine trendies would dominate, but there would be some conservatives.

    Definitely they’d exist in technical trades that are all around movie sets, etc.

    And when you attack a rich, powerful pig like this you’d better be prepared for the ferocious counterattack. He would deny everything and accuse you of libel and slander.

    If you knew it but could not prove it would you write the story? If you knew it but ran a small publication without resources, would you write the story?

    If you were a young or not so young actor/actress/bystander would you take on a wealthy guy that will sue you and blacklist you?

    The failing NY Times has a lot of money and can defend itself. But, so does the conservative Drudge, so does the conservative Fox News, and they or their contacts are in those circles.

  34. Conservatives don’t mix in those circles

    http://delivery.gettyimages.com/xr/620463340.jpg?v=1&c=IWSAsset&k=3&d=77BFBA49EF87892140FEB0FF7845C57DC436BCA7B30C9D2A9FDF0A9A5220125E80A8559A740CED6BA55A1E4F32AD3138

    Of course they don’t Pete.

  35. The I think apolitical Variety is the media bible, and they would have known. Oh yes.

  36. For three decades every big shot in Hollywood and the lib media (I know, most of the media) covered up mega-abuse, but it’s not just him.

    You are so Right Pete. Roger Ailes and Bill O’Reilly at Fox were at it as well. And it was covered up by those at Fox who knew (O’Reilly made settlements as well), until it was finally exposed and Murdoch had to fire them both.

    No doubt the Murdochs (Rupe and son James) were totally shocked and scandalised when it came out. And at such an awkward time, wot with the bid to take over Sky UK. You wouldn’t wish it on your worst enemy, would you?

  37. The Weinsteins and the Trumps

  38. Fake smiles!

  39. Seth MacFarlane Says His 2013 Harvey Weinstein Oscars Dig Came From ‘A Place Of Loathing And Anger’

    In announcing the 2013 Oscar nominees for Best Supporting Actress alongside Emma Stone in January 2013, [ Seth ] MacFarlane joked, “Congratulations, you five ladies no longer have to pretend to be attracted to Harvey Weinstein.”

    http://laist.com/2017/10/11/seth_macfarlane_weinstein.php

    Pay close attention to the little things that comedians/creatives say. Good for MacFarlane. The wonderful Tina Fey made similar type of comments about Cosby in 2005, way before he had been exposed.

  40. The wonderful Tina Fey jabbed Weinstein also, before

    http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/tv/tina-fey-sitcoms-making-harvey-weinstein-references-article-1.3557120

  41. I see that the wonderful Kate Winslet has also made accusations against Weinstein.
    Soo if “Truth is beauty, beauty truth”, then I hereby pronounce the bastard guilty!

  42. I like Seth McFarlane. I thought his hosting of the roast of Donald Trump was very good.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DVGI_Hkj0-s

  43. A Paula Jones quote:

    “I know William Jefferson Clinton, Mr. Weinstein and you’re no Bill Clinton!”

  44. Steve Bannon, the former Trump White House chief strategist and current head of Breitbart News, is the latest politico touched by the scandal. Bannon, whose website has hammered Democrats for accepting Weinstein’s political donations, himself profited from a relationship with the movie mogul, in an ill-fated joint venture more than a decade ago.

    Bannon served as chairman of a small company that distributed DVDs and home videos, and went into business in 2005 with The Weinstein Co., led by Harvey Weinstein and his brother, Bob. The Weinsteins became 70 percent owners of the now-defunct venture, Genius Products.

    http://nypost.com/2017/10/12/bannons-financial-ties-to-weinstein-revealed/

    Yes, ” conservatives ” never ran in the same circles that Weinstein did.

  45. The Manhattan District Attorney General is facing increasing criticism. He declined to prosecute Trump’s children and Weinstein, after taking sizable campaign contributions from the lawyers for both families.

    http://www.cnn.com/2017/10/11/politics/cyrus-vance-harvey-weinstein-trump/index.html

    Trump knows how to buy District Attorneys. He gave money to Florida DA Pam Bondi, after which she dropped the investigation into the bogus Trump University.

  46. Yes Phantom. That’s business. I said above that conservatives don’t “mix” in those circles. On another thread I said that they didn’t hand around with Weinstein. That’s how you get the info, by being chummy.
