‘He Cornered Me’: Reporter Lauren Sivan Shares Weinstein Harassment Story on ‘Megyn Kelly Today’

What’s happening?

Film producer Harvey Weinstein, the mogul behind “Gangs of New York,” “Pulp Fiction” and “Shakespeare in Love,” has lost his empire. The Weinstein Company board fired him after a flood of allegations that Weinstein used his position and power to harass women.

How bad is it?

If the decades’ worth of accusations are genuine, Weinstein has been a sexual predator in Hollywood for years.

Reporter Lauren Sivan talked on Megyn Kelly’s show today about an incident from 10 years ago, claiming that Weinstein tried to kiss her and then exposed himself when she rebuffed him.

“He cornered me… and leaned in and tried to kiss me which I immediately rebuffed,” Sivan said. “He exposed himself and began pleasuring himself. And I just stood there dumbfounded.”

Glenn’s take:

Remember that Weinstein’s company didn’t fire him because they suddenly found out about the sexual misconduct allegations – they fired him because the years of rumors and accusations finally caught up to him when the stories became public.

GLENN: Be consistent. Tell the truth. And be authentic.

That's all that Americans want from the media. Those three things. Surprisingly, last week, the New York Times delivered on that. They ran a bombshell feature story about Harvey Weinstein's long history of sexually harassing female employees, aspiring actresses, and just about anybody, including a plant at a restaurant. It's sick.

You've probably seen his name on about 50 percent of the movies that you've watched in your lifetime. He's the movie producer behind Best Picture Oscar movies like Shakespeare In Love and The King's Speech.

The New York Times reported that he paid off at least eight women to keep them from talking about his really super creepy, sleazy ways that he did business.

Yesterday, last night, his company board of directors fired him. So kudos to the New York Times for running the story. It couldn't have been an easy decision. Weinstein moves in the same liberal elite circles as many of the other media honchos in New York City. He even hosted a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton in his home last year.

She had turned her campaign into a referendum on Donald Trump's treatment of women. It must have been a little uncomfortable, even though she gladly accepted the campaign funds from the guy who was mistreating women for decades, and everyone knew.

You would think another New York media institution, Saturday Night Live, would have had a field day with this Saturday night. Since they care so much about women's rights and they hammered Donald Trump last year for that Access Hollywood tape.

But instead, SNL decided to shelve all of the Weinstein jokes that they had prepared. Perhaps maybe it hit a little too close to home for somebody in Saturday Night Live. It couldn't have been NBC. Because today, Megyn Kelly had one of his accusers on her new show.

MEGYN: I know he called you the next day at your TV station. He didn't have your phone number. That's what you say. And how did that go?

VOICE: That was so crazy. Because the next day, after I fled basically, he called my station. They said, I have Harvey Weinstein on the line for you. And my heart sank. And he said, "I just want to let you know, I had a great time last night."

VOICE: Oh.

VOICE: Excuse me? "Yeah, I had a great time last night. I'm going away overseas on a trip. I would love to see you again, if that's something we could do."

I said, "Absolutely not. I told you yesterday I have a very serious boyfriend. Absolutely not."

And I'm pretty sure I just hung up the phone quickly after. It was a very short conversation, but that was the most shocking part.

GLENN: Okay. So now here we find ourselves in a place that I hope we can find that sweet spot between a witch hunt and the truth, as we move forward. But these things tend to move into the witch hunt quickly.

Whatever the case is here, just know one thing: Last night, the Weinstein Company, the board of directors did not fire him because they found out, they fired him because you found out.

Bill O'Reilly: How corrupt media twisted Joe Biden Ukraine scandal onto Trump

Bill O'Reilly gives his take on whether or not President Trump DID promise or threaten the President of Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden, and whether or not the action is grounds for impeachment. But O'Reilly explains that either way, the media has demonstrated its corruptness yet again by manipulating the story away from a scandal for Joe and Hunter, and towards a potential, rumored wrongdoing by Donald Trump.
