Weinstein Fallout: “Censored News” Joins “Fake News” Label to Tar Corporate Media

President Donald Trump has developed a kind of Twitter art form for disparaging U.S. media as “Fake News.” But even before Trump was elected President and assumed the mantle of media-basher-in-chief, corporate-owned media had lost the confidence of a vast majority of Americans. A Gallup poll released on September 14 of last year found that “Americans’ trust and confidence in the mass media ‘to report the news fully, accurately and fairly’ has dropped to its lowest level in Gallup polling history, with 32% saying they have a great deal or fair amount of trust in the media.” The poll showed a drop of eight percentage points from the same poll conducted in 2015.

Now, as the fallout from the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault articles continues to play out, both NBC and the New York Times have come under fire for allegedly refusing to publish earlier, deeply investigated articles about Weinstein’s sexual misconduct.

Just two days after the New York Times ran its front page investigative report on Weinstein on October 6, Sharon Waxman, the founder, CEO and Editor-in-Chief at The Wrap, reported that the Times had killed her 2004 story on Weinstein’s sexual misconduct. Waxman wrote:

“In 2004, I was still a fairly new reporter at The New York Times when I got the green light to look into oft-repeated allegations of sexual misconduct by Weinstein. It was believed that many occurred in Europe during festivals and other business trips there.”

Waxman says that she “was told at the time that Weinstein had visited the newsroom in person to make his displeasure known” about her upcoming article and the eventual story that ran “was stripped of any reference to sexual favors or coercion and buried on the inside of the Culture section, an obscure story about Miramax firing an Italian executive.”
