What is driving the purge? Is there a timing to this? Is it a distraction?

Distracting you from those pesky Copper Mtn e-mails? You make it out West for some turns yet?

I find it kind of surprising to see that 90%+ of Miramax's films are crap that nobody remembers:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Miramax_films

This Harvey Weinstein guy.........was he famous before this whole scandal? I've heard the name, but had no idea who he was.

I feel like the media is really overblowing how famous and how powerful he actually was.

this is the destruction of the lefts false narrative of being for anyone who may be oppressed or disadvantaged etc...they are the guilty culprits in the exploitation of said people and it has been exposed...

The MSM, the NFL and now hollywood are all being destroyed over their identity politics....

I don't think this is a left or right thing. Power can corrupt, and over decades of continual power many mortals do fall.

there's no one on the right in hollywood or the MSM...that's what I am commenting on...it's not that weinstein is a lefty which he most certainly is, it's that the left supposedly champions women's rights but as you can clearly see that's not what they practice...it's just what they preach...hollowly...

xcerpts from former Miramax screenwriter Scott Rosenberg's Facebook post, whose mentor was Weinstein throughout the 1990's and early 2000's:

So, yeah, I was there.
And let me tell you one thing.
Let’s be perfectly clear about one thing:
f***.
Not that he was raping.
No, that we never heard.
But we were aware of a certain pattern of overly-aggressive behavior that was rather dreadful.

We knew about the man’s hunger; his fervor; his appetite.
There was nothing secret about this voracious rapacity; like a gluttonous ogre out of the Brothers Grimm.
All couched in vague promises of potential movie roles.
(and, it should be noted: there were many who actually succumbed to his bulky charms. Willingly. Which surely must have only impelled him to cast his fetid net even wider).
But like I said: everybody-fu*king-knew.

And to me, if Harvey’s behavior is the most reprehensible thing one can imagine, a not-so-distant second is the current flood of sanctimonious denial and condemnation that now crashes upon these shores of rectitude in gloppy tides of sh*t righteousness.
Because everybody-fu*king-knew.
And do you know how I am sure this is true?
Because I was there.
And I saw you.
And I talked about it with you.
You, the big producers; you, the big directors; you, the big agents; you, the big financiers.
And you, the big rival studio chiefs; you, the big actors; you, the big actresses; you, the big models.
You, the big journalists; you, the big screenwriters; you, the big rock stars; you, the big restaurateurs; you, the big politicians.
I saw you.
All of you.
And more:

So, yeah, I am sorry.
Sorry and ashamed.
Because, in the end, I was complicit.
I didn’t say sh*t.
I didn’t do sh*t.

Harvey was nothing but wonderful to me.
So I reaped the rewards and I kept my mouth shut.
And for that, once again, I am sorry.
But you should be sorry, too.
With all these victims speaking up…
To tell their tales.
Shouldn’t those who witnessed it from the sidelines do the same?
Instead of retreating to the cowardly, canopied confines of faux-outrage?
Doesn’t being a bystander bring with it the responsibility of telling the truth, however personally disgraceful it may be?

You know who are.
You know that you knew.
And do you know how I know that you knew?
Because I was there with you.
And because everybody-fu*king-knew.
