CNN’s Jake Tapper ripped his fellow media personalities for their complicity in covering up the Harvey Weinstein sex scandal.
Tapper took to Twitter to ask why former MSNBC host Ronan Farrow’s expose on Weinstein appeared in the New Yorker and not on the network.
Speaking of media complicity ask yourself why NBC reporter @RonanFarrow wrote this for The New Yorker.

Tapper followed that up by retweeting a HuffPo article that accused the gossip media of smearing Weinstein accuser Ambra Battilana Gutierrez after a secret audio recording became public in which Weinstein admitted to touching Gutierrez’s breast the day before.

The Weinstein scandal has rocked both Hollywood and the political world — Weinstein has personally contributed over $750,000 to Democratic politicians and organizations since 1991, and has very close ties to the Clintons.
It took five days after The New York Times broke the story before the Obama’s and Hillary Clinton issued statements condemning Weinstein’s actions, something that the liberal media–with the exception on CNN didn’t bother to question.
