Bick wrote:If Weinstein sexually harrassed Ashley Judd, and she said nothing about that, and then gets in front of thousands to denounce some crass thing Trump SAID 10 years ago...yeah, that's hypocritical.
Jonah Goldberg in his column today addressed that same hypocrisy. He wrote, "Why didn't they speak up earlier? Perhaps because attacking Weinstein had downsides while attacking, say, Donald Trump promised only rewards."
It should also be pointed out that in 2004, New York Times reporter Sharon Waxman wrote a detailed expose on Weinstein's extracurricular activities. The Times killed the article after Weinstein, a major advertiser in the paper, got wind of the story and expressed his displeasure. It seems not only is most of the liberal entertainment business hypocritical when it comes to covering up sexual harassment while feigning support for women's rights, so is one of the nation's leading liberal newspapers.
