Right now it’s enormously popular to blame government for all the evils in our lives and every time anything comes up: Health care, taxes, infrastructure, education, whatever...the automatic response is, “Do you trust the government to make that decision for you?” It’s like the automatic response to any argument that…
We already trust people who don’t have the least idea of what they’re doing (and can’t even take care of themselves) to raise children. I’d be willing to give the government a chance to do it.
The firing of Paz de la Huerta from Boardwalk Empire after its 1st season for her supposed drinking and partying always felt off to me. Wondering if HW had anything to do with it (though I don’t see his name on Boardwalk). It wouldn’t surprise me as he really did seem to be the “fucking sheriff of this fucking lawless…
“The Miramax official and another witness said that Mr. Goldman’s tape recorder slammed into the head of another guest.”
Damn that is one insanely cruel article. They didn’t have to admit Weinstein assaulted him, but why the fuck did they switch their roles completely??
Do you have a source for the CAA walkouts??
Yeah, that’s not even spin, it’s outright lying.
The differences between the two retellings is... telling.
This guy is such a piece of shit.
But that is coming up based on the alleged issue from years ago, with the 14 year old. Given the information that we have now about that, it is not unreasonable to take a closer look at other incidents and see if there is anything there. You are being willingly obtuse about that point and how they are related.
I will be very interested to see how people manage this reaction if/when the Bryan Singer and Dan Schneider stories break. How do managers, tutors, and parents ... people legally and morally obligated to protect children say they had no idea these things were happening? It was literally their jobs to know! How do you…
Years ago (like about 20) I worked with a woman whose young son would stop by the office a lot. He was a sophomore or junior in high school. Anyway, he told me a really creepy story about Kevin Spacey coming on to him hardcore at some DC Clinton dinner-type event. The kid’s parents were connected somehow and rated an…
There’s someone on reddit you might want to try and reach out to:
Once again a case of people who worked directly with someone who turns out is a now alleged sexual child abuser along with general sexual harassment had no idea of who he really was despite it being an open secret within the industry.
Good work figuring out what went down and why. I had a feeling that part of the article wasn’t exactly the author’s doing. That sort of conditional sourcing is highly unusual in journalism. Imagine if you saw that in Washington reporting. “Blah blah blah,” said a senior White House official who I’ll only name if his…
We had rented/zipped so many cars between last summer and Christmas that it totaled something like two grand, not to mention the hassle that comes with having to return each vehicle on time. Buying a used car will definitely be more cost-efficient, long term.
Well, fuck a goat.
Well, I’m done with this website. Feinberg was the only one left who was worth reading. The rest of you suck.
I appreciated her steadfast refusal to learn or care about any sport the entire time she wrote for Deadspin. Will miss her unique voice.
