  • Joy Behar rejects 'believe all women' motto, prompting Meghan McCain to bring up Kavanaugh saga

    "The View" co-host Joy Behar panned the idea that the media should "believe all women" who allege sexual misconduct and denied applying a different standard to Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh. "To me, if you say I believe any woman who makes any accusation -- if you say that, I think it minimizes our credibility as women, and then nobody's going to believe anybody at some point," Behar said. The co-hosts were discussing former NBC host Matt Lauer's full-throated attack on Ronan Farrow's reporting, which cited a woman accusing the former "Today" star of rape. That prompted Behar to...

Kelly -- who left NBC News with her $30 million contract intact following a "blackface" row in 2017 -- sat down with investigators in January, according to a source...

    Hachette Book Group scrapped “Apropos of Nothing,” which was scheduled to come out next month, after Allen’s estranged son, Ronan Farrow, blasted the publisher on Twitter and dozens of employees staged a walkout Thursday. He has been a vocal supporter of his sister, Dylan, who has accused Allen of molesting her as a child. “The Hachette decision to drop the Woody Allen book makes me very uneasy. It’s not him; I don’t give a damn about Mr. Allen. It’s who gets muzzled next that worries me,” King tweeted Friday evening. “Once you start, the next one is always easier,” he...

    Amid controversy over Uma Thurman’s near-fatal “Kill Bill” stunt, a 15-year-old interview with Quentin Tarantino went viral online Monday. The 2003 Howard Stern interview included an almost eight-minute defense of Roman Polanski by the famous director. “He didn’t rape a 13-year-old. It was statutory rape. It’s not the same thing. He had sex with a minor. That’s not rape. To me, when you use the word rape, you’re talking about violent, throwing them down...it’s like one of the most violent crimes in the world,” Tarantino told the shock jock. “You can’t throw the word ‘rape’ around. It’s like throwing the...

    CBS All Access’s The Good Fight will explore Donald Trump’s impeachment in an upcoming episode. Rather than having the traditional CBS executive Q&A, at which Reporters Who Cover Television take turns excoriating the network for lack of diversity, the network held one of the most interesting panels of this TCA to date, in which various showrunners took questions about politics and social issues on television. The Good Fight stole the show when EP Robert King told TV critics at TCA on Saturday about an upcoming episode in which the DNC seeks guidance from series’ law firm about the legal case...

    It was hardly a surprise Thursday when ratings-challenged MSNBC announced the cancellation of the poor-performing afternoon programs hosted by Ronan Farrow and Joy Reid after less than a year, with veteran news anchor Thomas Roberts stepping in to preside over the two-hour block from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Until a permanent replacement is named for Roberts’s 5:30 a.m. program Way Too Early, the 6 a.m. Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski will temporarily take up the slack by starting a half-hour earlier. But according to knowledgeable sources at the Comcast-owned cable network, Thursday’s moves were only the...

    The Manhattan D.A.’s office has asked a judge to block Harvey Weinstein’s defense team from calling on a psychologist to testify about false memories and the distinctly Orwellian-sounding phenomenon they refer to as “unwanted voluntary sex.” In a court filing made public on Wednesday, prosecutors responded to a series of motions made by Weinstein’s legal team, including his request to call social psychologist Deborah Davis to testify about “the accuracy and reliability of memory in disputed sexual encounters,” including “the formation of fully false memories for events that never happened.” Specifically, Davis would testify about the “phenomenon of ‘voluntary unwanted...

    Alleged sexual predator Harvey Weinstein was fawned over by fans and friends on Thursday during a night out at an exclusive SoHo lounge where he allegedly sexually assaulted someone more than a decade ago. The disgraced movie mogul sat in Cipriani’s dimly lit “Socialista” lounge — where he allegedly masturbated in front of a woman in 2007 — on West Broadway near Broome Street and was approached by a number of patrons who complimented him. “I love your movies,” one man told Weinstein. Others shook his hand and rubbed his shoulder as he enjoyed the evening in the chic lounge...

    Harvey Weinstein is two months out from his criminal trial, and according to a new report he is busy spending his days tracking his mentions online.

'He feels like he is owed an apology from Hollywood,' the source said.

    AUG. 29, 2018 (FLASHBACK) In late June, New York governor Andrew Cuomo quietly ordered the suspension of an ongoing investigation into whether the Manhattan District Attorney’s office had mishandled sexual-assault allegations made against Harvey Weinstein in March of 2015.

According to the report, which was published on Capital & Main, Cuomo’s campaign received a $25,000 donation from Weinstein’s former laywer David Boies’s firm on June 20.

    Author Ronan Farrow in an interview Friday with ABC News said he has seen a paper trail of documents that show "multiple secret settlements and non-disclosures" were struck by NBC News with women making sexual misconduct allegations against former "Today" anchor Matt Lauer. Farrow's new book, "Catch and Kill," documents the Lauer case and has already made news by reporting on new allegations from one NBC News employee who alleges the former "Today" anchor raped her in a hotel room at the Sochi Olympics. Lauer has firmly denied the allegations, saying it was a consensual affair. The book is already...

    One of the many news-making revelations in Ronan Farrow’s upcoming book, Catch and Kill, is that he received pressure from Hillary Clinton to back off his reporting on Harvey Weinstein. In summer 2017, while Farrow was trying to lock down an interview with Clinton for his foreign policy book — while also still working on the Weinstein story — he received a call from Clinton’s publicist, Nick Merrill, who told him that the “big story” Farrow was working on was a “concern for us.”
