Ben Affleck now apologizing for groping someone in 2003, after condemning Weinstein in a statement today. This just keeps on rolling.

How many phony liberal do gooders will this take down, I wonder.

Ben Affleck Accused of Groping Actress Hilarie Burton
Goodness, I wonder will it turn out like the Jimmy Saville affair, at first we thought it was just Saville but it ended up with loads of them being outed.

I haven’t watched all of this yet, but even the first five minutes are unreal. Matt Damon and Russell Crow making calls to the NYT reporter(female) in 2004 to stop her running a piece exposing Weinstein. This could easily be a Saville situation.

I don't see a Saville fall-out. Are people really surprised a bigshot among a crowd that revels in excess and hedonism turns out to be some Caliguan toad? The careers of these celebrities are too bound up in hollywood to push this too hard either. All this fall-out is probably due to Weinstein losing out in some arcane hollywood power struggle and has now been hung out to dry.

Anyway, Weinstein has now fled to Europe for "sex addiction therapy", lol. I wouldn't be surprised if he moved to Israel.

I think it depends on who it touches, and how strong the links are to them. When people claim to be the voice of morality, it doesn’t take all that much to tarnish them, and that’s what Hollywood has claimed to be for a long time, especially during the Trump times. There’ll definitely be an appetite to dig around, so who knows where it’ll go.

That Stefan M video is quite a good analysis, and he's not someone I listen to much, but he makes some very good points.

But in truth, the Saville thing ultimately did very little tbh, other than drag a few old timers down.

Here's a fuller list of complainants, From Angelina Jolie To Gynweth Paltrow, Here's Everyone Accusing Harv… but why now, he's obviously been doing this a long time.

"Per The Times, more than eight women alleged that Weinstein appeared naked or only partially clothed, asking for a massage or initiating one himself, or requiring them to be present while he bathed. Weinstein, 65, has reportedly reached at least eight settlements with women over allegations including sexual harassment and unwanted physical contact."

They have been talking about this since the 90's, but now all of a sudden its a big deal ?

Weinstein had made his bed with both side's politically, Republicans and Democrats war over Harvey Weinstein donations, he threw money/influence everywhere.
He's easy to burn, both sides have been infected by him. I suspect he'll do a polanski and go fuck kids in the ukraine or some other child sex tourist hot spot.

Anytime ye see a big hollywood story you should be suspect as fuck. Hollwood needs to stay relevant, and there always a hollywood scandal around the corner, who's fucking who.
But their numbers are shit. TV Ratings: Oscars Drop to 32.9M Viewers, Telecast Takes a Bigger Hit With Younger Set
"Leading into the big night, ABC's Oscars had suffered two consecutive years of dramatic dips — losing almost 10 million viewers between 2014 and 2016."
So they need a big fuck ye look at me.

They tried pushing their celebs out in front of the masses at the last election and to get Hillary elected, and they were ignored. There ratings are getting worse. Another Drop in Emmys Ratings Proves Hollywood Learned Nothing About Its Audience
"The bubble that Hollywood leftists live in remains strong an unbroken, even in the face of falling ratings, and the election of a president that – so long as an R remains next to his name – stands against everything they claim to believe in."
"Hollywood’s unflinching dedication to leftist politics has left it a predictable, boring mess of uninspired jokes, and political platitudes that make it hard to watch. The glimpses inside the Hollywood bubble that award shows give us make many wonder if any of the coastal elite have ever spoken to a member of the fly-over peasantry they’re in the job to entertain."

Theres been other such rumblings,
What It’s Really Like to Work in Hollywood (*If you’re not a straight white man.)
and responses on it The Oscars Are Too White — and That's a Jewish Problem

And some have been pushing hard the female angle and diversity
The Women of Hollywood Speak Out
"Female executives and filmmakers are ready to run studios and direct blockbuster pictures. What will it take to dismantle the pervasive sexism that keeps them from doing it?"
"On Oscar night, Meryl Streep leapt to applaud Patricia Arquette when she pleaded for equal pay for women. She followed up by funding a writing lab for Hollywood’s untouchable caste, women screenwriters over 40."
"In Hollywood, they now talk about ‘‘the Lena Dunham effect’’ and ‘‘the Jill Soloway effect’’: Studios are starting to search for female-driven shows and recruit women to create them."

All girl flopbusters, they diversified the shit out of star wars, and star trek diversity is a sick joke.

They even diversified season three of rick and morty
Meet the Women Behind 'Rick and Morty's' Third Season

Not sure is it all working out for them.
But theres plenty of new money coming in Apple ready to splash cash on brand new Hollywood shows, report says
