    The Only #MeToo Stories Hollywood Will Tell Are About Republicans They’re not exposés, they’re cover-ups. Mon Oct 14, 2019 Daniel Greenfield 19 Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism. Over 80 women accused Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein of everything from harassment to rape. The drama of the case made the #MeToo movement go global. And you might think that there would be a movie in that. But years later, the closest we’ve come are rumors that Brad Pitt, who has his own history...

    “This is what I was wearing 23 years ago when Donald Trump attacked me in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room.” With those words—and an accompanying image—on the cover of New York magazine, E. Jean Carroll, the longtime advice columnist for Elle, became at least the 22nd woman to accuse the president of the United States of sexual misconduct. The allegation features in an excerpt—published Friday, from Carroll’s new book—about the “hideous men” she says have assaulted her; that group also includes Les Moonves, the former CEO of CBS. Despite the litany of claims against Trump, Carroll is only the second...

    Attorney George Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, declared Saturday that the latest rape allegation against President Donald Trump is more credible than Juanita Broaddrick’s claim against former President Bill Clinton. On Friday, journalist and advice columnist E. Jean Carroll accused President Trump and former CBS CEO Les Moonves of sexual assault in an excerpt of her forthcoming book excerpted Friday in New York magazine. She said then-real estate tycoon Trump approached her in 1995 or 1996 at Bergdorf Goodman department store in Manhattan. Recognizing each other, she said he asked her for help buying a gift...

    Famed advice columnist E. Jean Carroll claims that now-President Trump sexually assaulted her in a department store dressing room in the mid-90s, it was revealed. Carroll told New York Magazine the real estate tycoon approached her in Bergdorf Goodman and started a friendly chat. Trump allegedly called the popular columnist “that advice lady” and asked her to help him pick out lingerie. They eventually went into a dressing room together, where Carroll claims Trump shoved her against a wall and pulled down her tights. She then claims Trump was “forcing his fingers around my private area, thrusts his penis halfway...

    60 Minutes corespondent Scott Pelley says he was let go as host of the CBS Evening News because he spoke up to his bosses about the “hostile” workplace within the network’s news division. In an interview with CNN’s Brian Stelter on Sunday’s Reliable Sources, Pelley explains, “We’ve been through a dark period of the last several years of incompetent management and sort of a hostile work environment within the news division. I lost my job at the evening news because I wouldn’t stop complaining to management about the hostile work environment.” Pelley — who served as anchor of the CBS...

    CBS paid more than $5 million in a settlement agreement reached in the 1990s with a woman who claimed former '60 minutes' executive producer Doug Hewitt sexually assaulted her, the New York Times reported Thursday. Lawyers hired by CBS to investigate the workplace culture of '60 Minutes' are set to present a report to the board next week, according to the Times, which obtained a draft. The report, precipitated by the high profile removals of '60 Minutes' producer Jeff Fager and CBS chief executive Les Moonves after sexual misconduct allegations, found the program's separation from the larger company to be...

    FULL TITLE: Not All Women: GOP Women Are Furious Over Democrats' Anti-Kavanaugh Smear Campaign; UPDATE: Dem Strategists Worry The Democratic Party is the one that supports women, is for women, and is fighting for their rights. And yet, some of their biggest supporters in business and media are absolute pigs. Look at disgraced former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, former CBS News Executive Les Moonves, and of course, former Hollywood media mogul Harvey Weinstein. There was JFK, Ted Kennedy, and Bill Clinton. All parties above treated women like garbage. They’re sleaze. Yet, it surely helps to keep news of...

    ane Fonda believes the downfall of Leslie Moonves won’t be the last we’ll see among powerful entertainment industry executives. “It’s a shame he didn’t behave, [but now] it’s come back to get him,” Fonda said at Thursday night’s Los Angeles premiere of the HBO documentary “Jane Fonda in Five Acts” at the Armand Hammer Museum. Moonves departed on Sunday amid a cascade of sexual assault and misconduct allegations. “This has been happening for a long time and it’s been an epidemic of behavior like this on the part of people who have power,” Fonda said. “I think the #MeToo movement...

    After taking a hiatus from her post on The Talk Julie Chen returned to CBS to host Big Brother, but chose not to address the latest allegations of sexual misconduct against husband Leslie Moonves for most of the show. That was all until the very end of the episode where she seemed to show support for her husband, by signing off on the show with: "I'm Julie Chen Moonves. Goodnight." It was off script from her usual sign off and the first time she has used the last name Moonves on the show. The morning after her husband Leslie Moonves...

    Julie Chen did not appear on Monday’s Season 9 premiere of “The Talk” on CBS the day after her husband, Leslie Moonves, was ousted as CEO-chairman of CBS Corp. “I am taking a few days off from ‘The Talk’ to be with my family.

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Vegas oddsmakers have set the over/under on its survival at 13-1/2 days. – Donald Trump’s star – which has been destroyed nutjob Democrats twice since 2016, has been restored once again on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Workers reset the star on Saturday in the face of a vote by the West Hollywood City Council in early August to have the star permanently removed. The Walk of Fame, however, is administered by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, whose President, Leron Gubler, had this to say about the matter: “Any star, which is...

    It may not be good for America, but it's good for CBS." That's how network executive chairman and reliable Democratic donor Les Moonves described Donald Trump's frontrunner status in the GOP primary, noted the Hollywood Reporter's Paul Bond today. "Bring it on, Donald," cheered Moonves in remarks to the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media & Telecom Conference being held in San Francisco.  While Bond didn't note as such, a quick check of the FEC's donor database – see screenshot below – shows Moonves has a long track record of contributing to Democrats John Kerry and Al Gore as well as Democratic political action committees...

    Look at the size of that wad! It's huge! And it is all 100 dollar bills! How much you carrying there, Les? $5000? $10,000? $20,000? More? As we have seen, the networks declined to report that their CEOs including CBS CEO Les Moonves who earned over $54 million this past year were "overpaid." Perhaps they were embarrassed to report this. However, even more embarrassing is that Moonves is so cheap that he used a big wad of hundred dollar bills to stiff a restaurant parking valet out of a tip as you can see in the video on the Page Six report of the New...

    CBS CEO Les Moonves spoke at the University of Texas Monday, where he accepted an award and addressed students. While there, he commented candidly on the future of broadcast journalism, and the nightly newscasts in particular. Among other things, Moonves said that the format of the nightly evening newscasts needs to change–and it will happen sooner rather than later. He said that he could see the evening newscasts structured more like ABC’s “Nightline,” with an in-depth look at one or two subjects, or like the Sunday morning shows, with a round-table of panelists. Why change them? It is too expensive...

    THE perplexing mystery of why Keith Olbermann acts like a twitchy, hopped-up geek on his MSNBC show has been solved. The New Yorker's Peter J. Boyer reports the TV loudmouth "has been given a diagnosis of Wittmaack-Ekbom's syndrome, also known as 'restless legs syndrome' (and also 'the kicks,' 'Jimmy legs' and 'the jitters'), a neurological disorder that produces a prickling, itching or crawling feeling in the legs." Known as a women's ailment because it strikes twice as many women as men, the syndrome has stirred controversy among doctors who don't agree whether it's even real or instead caused by various...
