Matt Damon & Russell Crowe 'helped spike Weinstein exposé'
"Sharon Waxman revealed in a post on The Wrap that she had been working on an expose about Weinstein (13 years ago) until Damon and actor Russell Crowe called her directly to try and bury the piece."
Who knew and who didn't?
More thoughts on why the story didn't emerge earlier, from the conservative Weekly Standard, which tends to paint the issue entirely in political colors. (And they may well be right about most of it.)
