    Effect of Weinstein - Progressive Harrasers

    Vox Media Dismisses Two – 8 Members of Elite Media Accused of Misconduct Towards Female Staffers

    With the news that Vox Media has dismissed two employees, including a high-ranking editorial director, it is becoming increasingly obvious that throughout our elite media — the very same media that told us “binders full of women” disqualified Mitt Romney from becoming president — there is a culture that enables the systemic sexual harassment and abuse of female staffers.
    After a former employee accused the company of ignoring and even tolerating sexual misconduct, Vox Media fired editorial director Lockhart Steele late last month. The timing of Vox Media’s inaction and eventual action suggests that the company had no intention of doing anything … until this employee went public.

    The Hollywood Reporter reports that, on Friday, another Vox Media staffer was forced to resign. This person remains unnamed, but a now-concluded investigation into the scandal forced this person to exit the powerful media company.
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    Mika Brzezinski on Mark Halperin: We Are Witnessing A "Pivotal Moment In History" Where Sexual Harassment Will No Longer Be Swept Under The Rug


    MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski discusses the allegations of sexual harassment being made against 'Morning Joe' regular Mark Halperin, and says that despite her longstanding friendship with Halperin, they will cover the story. She said she has "spoken to and heard from some of these women," and she feels "their pain and understands the difficult position they were in, because I have been through enough in this business to know what I hear."


    Four more women accuse Mark Halperin of harassment, bringing total to at least a dozen

    Models Lured Women to Wall Street Sex Dungeon: Lawsuit

    Three women have accused Wall Street bigwig Howard Rubin of raping and beating them in his private dungeon—after luring them via models who vouched for him as a ‘good guy.’



    The man best known for losing more money on Wall Street than anyone else before the 1987 stock market crash stands to lose $27 million more and what’s left of his reputation, if a federal court believes the allegations in an explosive new lawsuit filed against him and a gaggle of so-called conspirators in Brooklyn federal court on Thursday.

    In the complaint, three Florida women, filing under pseudonyms, have accused 62-year-old Howard Rubin of leading an organized human-trafficking ring in which he allegedly employed women to lure models to his $8 million Manhattan Penthouse under the guise of a photoshoot or companionship. Once there, the women claim, he led them into a sex-dungeon where he subjected them to sexual assault, rape, false imprisonment, and beatings so severe they would lose consciousness and one had to undergo reconstructive surgery to repair her breasts.

    The women—who also say Rubin and his co-conspirators threatened them to keep quiet following the alleged assaults—filed their suit under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, a law originally created for prosecution of members of the mob.

    Well if he lured them into a sex dungeon and then didn't allow them to leave until after the sex part, why isn't he being charged with a Federal crime of kidnapping.

    Here's a segment of American society who derided Bill Cosby publicly, who demanded his public "lynching" who wouldn't acknowledge their own dirty laundry until a more spectacular villain was disclosed which could not be denied. Interesting how that happens these days.

    Maureen O'Hara spoke out against Hollywood predators in 1945

    “I am so upset with it that I am ready to quit Hollywood,” said the then-25-year-old.

    It shouldn't have been swept under the rug in the first ####ing place. There are plenty of women who've had a great career without having to blow some guy or put up with his ####. Hey feminists? Where've you bitches been when your compatriots were being sexually harassed and assaulted? Where were you when Paula Jones was belittled and attacked? Oh, that's right - you were out campaigning for her attacker.

    The "casting couch" is as old as Hollywood and women have been sleeping their way to the top since forever - look at Hillary Clinton. She literally screwed her way into politics and she was hailed as a "woman's woman" and role model for us all.

    Seriously, spare me the fake outrage bull####, you dumb sluts.

    I'm going to start a hashtag thing - #notme. I've never had to put out for a job. Not one single time.
