Statement from reporters Maximillian Potter and Alex French on investigation of Bryan Singer published in The Atlantic.
We have been asked why a story reported and written by two Esquire writers is being published in The Atlantic. This story began with our editors at Esquire. After months of reporting, the story went through Esquire‘s editorial process, which included fact-checking and vetting by a Hearst attorney, and the story was approved for publication. The story was then killed by Hearst executives. We do not know why. We feel fortunate that the piece has gone through The Atlantic‘s thoughtful editorial process, which included another rigorous fact-check and robust legal vetting. We are most grateful that the alleged victims now have a chance to be heard and we hope the substance of their allegations remains the focus.
Oh, I think we all know why Hearst killed the story. But the controlled burn of #MeToo has failed and the truth about the unmitigated, predatory evil of Hollywood is going to continue coming out.
CDAN takes a victory lap:
The long awaited expose about the disgraced A-list Director has finally arrived. If you haven’t read it yet, I would recommend going through every single line. This should completely end the director’s career. It is much worse than what was written to end other big Hollywood careers. The people who have worked at this for years said they had the goods on this guy, and they delivered more than any of us could have expected. They just had to fight for a long time against very powerful and evil people to get the story out there.
The Singer story is about as bad as you’d expect, although the sheer scale and brazenness of his depredations may surprise the naive. The filth of Hollywood is almost beyond credibility and it is intimately connected to the intrinsic anti-Christianity of the industry.
