The stunning report in the NY Times about one of the most powerful movie executives in Hollywood, Harvey Weinstein, having a lengthy history of sexual harassment settlements raises the obvious questions about hypocrisy regarding public criticism of Fox News higher-ups and President Trump, before his election.

KVI's Kirby Wilbur and John Carlson dissect this developing story and they spotlight the public condemnations against Trump by noted actresses like Ashley Judd who simultaneously concealed her knowledge of deplorable acts of sexual harassment by Weinstein.

The conversation between Wilbur and Carlson shows the massive chasm in how media coverage relentlessly hammers cases like sexual harassment settlements and accusations against Fox News Channel personnel, as well as Donald Trump's repulsive comments to "Access Hollywood" in 2005.

Meanwhile some of the darkest secrets of Hollywood are ignored by the very people in the entertainment/movie industry who are sanctimoniously involved in public protests.
