Sexgate: 8 men in liberal MSM lose jobs because of sexual misconduct

When the New York Times, for whatever reasons of their own, outed Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein as a sexual assaulter/rapist although the Times had known about the brute for years, the floodgates were opened to a deluge of accusations against other denizens of Hollywood. See:

The Weinstein Effect isn’t confined to Hollywood, but has spread to journalism as well.
In an article that was updated on November 11, 2017, the New York Times names eight men in journalism who deservedly are caught in Weinstein’s undertow. Some of them are major figures in liberal journalism, including Mark Halperin and Leon Wieseltier.
The eight, in alphabetical order, are:
(1) Ken Baker, E! News correspondent:

  • Sexual harassment of two women, including unwanted kissing and inappropriate messages.
  • Baker has been pulled from air while NBCUniversal investigates the charges.
  • Baker’s response: “I am very disturbed by these anonymous allegations, which make my heart ache. I take them very seriously.”

(2) Hamilton Fish, president and publisher of The New Republic and former publisher of The Nation:

  • Complaints by female employees about “certain workplace interactions [with Fish] that have created an uncomfortable environment for them”.
  • Fish was placed on leave, then resigned.
  • Fish: “Women have longstanding and profound concerns with respect to their treatment in the workplace. Many men have a lot to learn in this regard. I know I do, and I hope for and encourage that new direction.”

(3) Mark Halperin, 52, NBC News and MSNBC contributor, author of Game Change:

  • Sexual harassment or assault of at least a dozen women when Halperin was political director at ABC News– that Halperin placed his erect penis on the bodies of women without consent; masturbated in front of a woman in his office; and threw another woman against a restaurant window before attempting to kiss her.
  • Dismissed from MSNBC and NBC News and had upcoming book and HBO adaptation canceled.
  • Halperin: “I am profoundly sorry for the pain and anguish I have caused by my past actions. I apologize sincerely to the women I mistreated.”

(4) Knight Landesman, 67, publisher of Artforum, an international monthly magazine on contemporary art:

  • Sexual harassment of at least nine women, including groping.
  • Resigned.
  • Landesman: “I fully recognize that I have tested certain boundaries, which I am working hard to correct.”

(5) Michael Oreskes, 63, Head of news at NPR (National Public Radio) and former New York Times editor:

  • Sexual harassment of three women.
  • Resigned.
  • Oreskes: “I am deeply sorry to the people I hurt. My behavior was wrong and inexcusable, and I accept full responsibility.”

(6) Robert Scoble, 52, tech blogger and co-founder of the Transformation Group, an “augmented reality” consulting firm:

  • Sexual harassment, including unwanted sexual advances, of as many as 12 women.
  • Fired.
  • Scoble: “I am deeply sorry and I am ashamed.”

(7) Lockhart Steele, 44, editorial director of the multinational digital media company Vox Media:
Sexual harassment of at least one person, including unwanted kissing.
Fired: Vox Media’s chief executive said Steele had admitted to “engaging in conduct that is inconsistent with our core values and will not be tolerated.”
(8) Leon Wieseltier, 64, contributing editor of The Atlantic and former editor of The New Republic:

  • Sexual harassment of several women, including inappropriate advances.
  • Fired from Emerson Collective, which canceled publication of a magazine he was editing.
  • Wieseltier: “For my offenses against some of my colleagues in the past I offer a shaken apology and ask for their forgiveness.”

Like Jerry Brown having Linda Rodstadt for a “girlfriend”. We know he had Don Henley for his boyfriend. “Pan deviancy”. Wow!

I don’t want to put a speck in Don Henley’s eye when I have lumber in my own, but Don Henley as gay or bisexual? So many of his songs and music are about his life’s relationships, and I thought they were all gals. I must be way more ignorant than I know….

Well, the story is (and it is pretty well documented), that after his relationship with Stevie Nicks ended, he started another with Moombeam. Of course he was pretty heavily into drugs at the time. Having said that, I don’t think I could take enough drugs to make me queer and in love with Jerry Brown. The story is that Don “ordered” two underaged homeless girls for the evening. He fed them dope and raped them. One of them suffered convulsions and almost died. There was a rather big fracas with the cops and paramedics. “Friend” Jerry got it all under… Read more »

Baker published a book in September, “The Ken Commandments.” From Amazon: Ken Baker, the popular L.A.-based senior correspondent for E! News and E! Online, has worked in Hollywood for over twenty years—hobnobbing with multimillionaires and interviewing movie, music and TV stars such, day in and day out. In that time, and in the land of fairy tales and double-dealing, Baker had become one of the materialistic, carnal people he never wanted to be, abandoning his Christian heritage and losing his spiritual center in the process. Finding himself alone and confused one day in Vegas, he has an awakening that puts… Read more »

Jewish perverts? Say it ain’t so!

Reply to  lophatt

Some of the nicest pervs I ever met when I was a young pre-teen were Jewish boys in the neighbourhood…. More seriously, both the Sams I knew from my father’s business were far more out-front about human sexuality than my very repressed Italian Roman Catholic family & friends, so I can see where a curious youth would go for ‘information’. Will this errancy ever cease? To the extent that public school sex education makes children more self-aware and able to deal with their changing bodies and natures, I think that’s a public good, BUT there’s an abyss past that where… Read more »

Well I think you have your answer to all these Jewish perverts being publicly outed. Conservative Senate elect Roy Moore is being similarly outed now: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/13/us/politics/roy-moore-alabama-senate.html?_r=0 As Carville said when Clinton was being publicly harassed…”If you drag a hundred-dollar bill through a trailer park, you never know what you’ll find.” The interesting thing is how the Main stream media is so well coordinated on this. Republicans are now asking Moore to graciously step down. How considerate. One thing we learned through this last election is that the United States has a single party system where Israel is concerned. The Jews… Read more »

Thanks for that Henley link. I’m going to look that up right now. I stopped listening to Fleetwood Mac when I learned about their “lifestyle”. I could tolerate their substance abuse (their choice, their money) but the marital affairs and Stevie’s abortions. No. It just killed the music for me. Really wish I had their songwriting talent though.

Well, as a lifelong musician, I do not make heroes out of those whose music I like. I appreciate it for what it is. I will not buy the work of those who actively work to undermine society.
I personally had no knowledge of this at the time. I do know that, despite Stevie’s foibles, she is a better old woman than she was as a young one. I have no idea of her beliefs beyond that.
Redemption is possible for anyone. I’ll leave it at that.

That’s why I wonder why “every” woman in America jumps on the bandwagon once ONE takes the plunge and accuses someone-right or wrong-of a sexual abuse. Why don’t the Attorneys just start a website to have women log in,spin the wheel to select the man they wanna accuse,and wait for their check to arrive? I’m sorry for those who WERE abused,but I believe at least 80% of the accusers are lying and just want to score a check and some notoriety. Maybe they need to keep the men’s names secret and make the ACCUSERS name their abuser. I bet MOST… Read more »

I think it’s different in the case of accusers from Hollyweird. Their casting couch and power abuse has been going on for decades.
Granted, their claims may be exaggerated now with the proliferation of claims. Maybe their goal is to change the paradigm of power.
Then again it may not. After all, Polanski still gets a standing ovation.

Before we harp on McCarthyism, let’s take a step back and start with the Big Daddy of the Sexual Revolution, Hugh Hefner. It all began—so it seemed—innocently enough: A centerfold of Marilyn Monroe. But that lit the fuse, so it seems… FDR said, “Nothing in politics happens by accident. If something happens, you can be sure it was planned that way.” Ditto in the spiritual realm: We may not be able to see one event—however seemingly benign at the time—as lighting a fuse. Lest We Forget: “Nothing happens on earth that has not happened first in the Heavenlies.” We are… Read more »

Don’t delude yourself. These men aren’t sorry for what they did. They are only sorry they got caught and called out for it.

I think much of it, considering the timing of the claims and allegations (30, 40+ years after the alleged abuse, just before elections) is politically and ideologically driven. Both sides are eager to do whatever it takes to keep those with whom they vehemently disagree OUT of office and thus power. I’m sure I’m not the only one to immediately notice old Gloria Allred at the side of the latest accuser in her news conferences. And I’d be willing to bet that Soros or his ilk is providing the deep pockets to fund the vampire-like attorneys bringing the charges. OTOH,… Read more »
