I've been listening to interviews with the estimable Ronan Farrow in the last days on this matter. Weinstein is a common criminal and completely without morals or ethics. I hope he goes to the slammer for a long time and learns the art of survival there!! Maybe then he'll then learn how the 'polite refusal' works!!

Ronan Farrow (New Yorker 2017) wrote:Weinstein’s relationships with the private investigators were often routed through law firms that represented him. This is designed to place investigative materials under the aegis of attorney-client privilege, which can prevent the disclosure of communications, even in court.
David Remnick of The New Yorker deserves credit too for publishing Farrow's reports in Oct. 2017 when nobody else except the New York Times via their reporters Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey would touch such stories.

The New Yorker is the only publication I will always buy b/c its quality never ceases to amaze me.

I also have every issue from 1925-2008 on a lavish DVD issue they put out before their archive went online only.
