Harvey Weinstein's Miramax Films was one of Hollywood's most successful and powerful institutions. Yesterday, the New York Times reported extensively on 30 years of Weinstein's sexual harassment of women who needed his help for career advancement. Weinstein apologized, blamed the permissive "culture" of the 60s and 70s, and said he'll take a leave of absence to seek therapy. He also claims he's suing the newspaper for "reckless reporting." Kim Masters, editor at large for the Hollywood Reporter and host of KCRW's The Business, has more on the story.
