When Will the Men of Hollywood Speak Against Weinstein?

Women including Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie and Rose McGowan are accusing film mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct throughout his decades in the entertainment industry.

A journalist has claimed that she tried to write the Weinstein story back in 2004 – but it was axed after pressure from Matt Damon and Russell Crowe. Sharon Waxman, founder of the Wrap, has alleged that the two stars contacted her “directly” to vouch for Weinstein, who happened to be the producer who boosted their careers with films like “Good Will Hunting” and “Cinderella Man.”

“This story reveals so much about American politics and hypocrisies,” Glenn said on today’s show.

GLENN: Harvey Weinstein has been thanked at the Oscars more than God. And it looks Weinstein's number of thank yous may have taken a serious hit now that he's been fired from his own company for decades of sexually harassing numerous women. We have some audio we'll play for you in a minute that is stunning.

But, remember, this is an industry where people still fall over themselves to be in a Woody Allen film. They never skip the chance to praise Roman Polanski. It wouldn't shock me if Harvey Weinstein wins an Oscar when he makes a comeback in a few years.

Yesterday, Meryl Streep, Glenn Close, Kane Winslet, Judy HEP Dench, spoke out condemning Weinstein. But the men of Hollywood seemed to be keeping their mouth shut for some reason. In fact, Sharon HEP Waxman revealed that in 2004, she was working on a similar report for the New York Times about Weinstein sexually harassing women, but she said Matt Damon, Russell Crowe, both called to vouch for Weinstein. So the Times dropped the 2004 story after pressure.

His company was a big advertiser for the newspaper. Weinstein is beyond a creep. And he'll have to deal with the consequences of his gross behavior himself. But let's not kid ourselves. Sexual harassment goes on in every single industry. And I got to believe the movie industry is number one on that list. This story reveals so much about American politics and hypocrisies. While it's fun to give Hollywood a taste of their own medicine for a change, we shouldn't miss the opportunity to have a national dialogue about the objection of women in our culture, and what helps fuel this problem.

A lot of that comes from Hollywood. And you can't have a national epidemic of male addiction to pornography and expect to have sexual harassment decrease. It used to be considered sleazy to go to a X-rated movie theater. (?) in their phone. Their back pocket. And if you think it's bad now, wait until 24/7 porn generation becomes the boss at work.

Combating our porn epidemic is a cause that men and women, liberal and conservatives, who work on together, they won't.

Hollywood loves their porn. It may sound old-fashioned and prudish to some, but if we don't think that our porn addiction is affecting our society, we are delusional.

How an ‘orchestrated’ revolution is bringing America TO ITS KNEES

Victor Davis Hanson, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, joins Glenn to discuss his new book, 'The Dying Citizen.' He explains how America's hippies from the 1960s are the progressive elites running our institutions today and how their 'well orchestrated' moves have created a top-down revolution that's 'bringing us down to our knees.' So, what's the solution? Davis Hanson tells Glenn what we can do to push back against the far left today…

Who Is More Evil: Government or Facebook? | Robby Soave | Ep 120

The Left and Right agree: Social media companies like Facebook are abusing their power — whether through censorship or harmful, groupthink-creating algorithms. But is the solution really more censorship and regulation, like government fearmongers and leftist "whistleblowers" have insisted? Glenn sits down with the senior editor at Reason, Robby Soave, who has a much more refreshing solution laid out in his latest book, "Tech Panic: Why We Shouldn't Fear Facebook and the Future." Politicians have weaponized the fear we have about social media. So, maybe we should be looking at the positives. Glenn and Robby take a look at the (very familiar) history of tech panic and censorship, balance the consequences of changing Section 230, and expose the real threat to the future of free speech: Progressive tyranny entrenched in the old school media.

'HARMFUL CONTENT': How King Biden Is KILLING the Constitution

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.

Why it’s time for Dr. Fauci to STOP DOING INTERVIEWS!

Dr. Fauci was at it again over the weekend, this time declaring during a CBS News interview that it's 'too soon to tell' if Americans can safely gather with family this Christmas season. But the main issue isn't necessarily Fauci's crazy statement, Stu explains to Glenn. Rather, it's Fauci doing TV interviews at all. The left will support anything he says and the right will call him an idiot no matter what. He no longer has the ability to sway minds, so why is he on television more than Glenn is?!
