Reporter Produces Witnesses to Back Up Claim New York Times Killed 2004 Weinstein Exposé

TheWrap’s Sharon Waxman has found witnesses to back up her claim that the left-wing New York Times killed a 2004 story that exposed producer Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual predations.

Just hours after the Weinstein scandal went nuclear earlier this month, Waxman revealed that way back in 2004, while working as a reporter for the Times, she nailed down a story about how Fabrizio Lombardo, the head of Miramax in London, had zero film experience and that his real job was to procure women for Weinstein.

According to Waxman, she had on the record sources ready to confirm “evenings [Fabrizio] organized with Russian escorts.” Moreover, Waxman says she “tracked down a woman in London who had been paid off after an unwanted sexual encounter with Weinstein.”

Waxman claims that after intense pressure from Matt Damon, Russell Crowe, and a personal visit from Weinstein, “The story was stripped of any reference to sexual favors or coercion and buried on the inside of the Culture section[.]”

As one might expect, the New York Times immediately struck back against Waxman’s claims. Executive editor Dean Baquet, who was not with the Times in 2004, said that then-executive editor “Bill Keller and Jill Abramson … have no recollection of being pressured over Ms. Waxman’s story.”
