Harvey Weinstein

Not really, someone could slip on a banana skin and CNN would find a way to blame Trump.
Whereas, of course there are no right-leaning newspapers in America.

Not to the extent of the abuse old Trumpy gets
 
Did you watch him dancing in that video clip? He deserves everything they can throw at him.
For shit dancing skills?

If he doesn't want to be abused in the media, he should probably stop lying and and being a massive racist.

You would think thats what they would abuse him for, but not CNN et al.
They (one of many example)s have criticised him for failing to act against Assad chemical attack only to criticise him 24 hours later when he did do something.
Another example from CNN, when the stock markets was doing well, CNN said it should be remembered that it doesnt affect many ordinary Americans, when they have crashed recently, CNN have remembered many Americans have retirement funds linked to the stock market.
Jobs market doing well? That must have been Obama even though he fucked off over 3 years ago.
Its an outrage Trump is telling NATO countries to pay their share.
Its also an outrage that Trump is saving the American taxpayers money by cutting funding to Palestine.
Etc etc

If the man offered a million dollars to every American citizen, CNN would still find fault.

Undoubtedly.
But let's not pretend that Fox News wouldn't be doing the same if Hillary had won the vote... I mean if the US election system made sense.

Maybe but Fox is acknowledged for spouting bollocks, CNN is for some reason regarded as a better/truthful news organisation.

Because they are more truthful.

It's like the Guardian vs the Daily Mail; both are fairly heavily biased but the Guardian overlays its opinion on the truth, rather than just making shit up (my favourite DM trick - claim an "unnamed source has said" as no one can prove it's untrue...)

CNN seems to be in much the same boat - they may criticise Trump a lot (no matter what he does) but they rarely lie about him.

Neither CNN or the Guardian are more truthful, they just present their news differently than Fox/Mail.
Ive just watched some bint on CNN (the wife watches it) try to whip up some outrage against Trump because he isnt having the Coronavirus tests, she had a face like a smacked arse when the doctor said she agreed with Trump about 20 minutes later she was talking to another Doctor and once again tried to whip up some outrage only for the second doctor to agree he didnt need the test. CNN frequently has people on that they know will bad-mouth Trump.

The Guardians uses phrases like "reportedly" or "according to reports" where as the Mail relies on "sources" still the same old made up shit just presented a different way.

Which US newspaper do you consider rivals CNN for reach and effect?

Why is he a massive racist? I know you don't do detail but his legislative record suggests the opposite.
 
Ouch.

"Judge James Burke sentenced Weinstein to 20 years for the criminal sex act and three years for rape. He was facing a minimum of five years and a maximum of 29."

23 years means he's likely to die in prison. Faces other charges too.

The shower scene will not be like in his films & when they say "cut" Harvey will bleed!

Mostly for the racist stuff he says.

I know that everyone has forgotten the thing with the three senators (or congresswomen?) but that's only because he's so unprecedentedly controversial that he's already moved on to other shit.

Considering he is an utter freak who is delusional, can’t see Kiefer Sutherland or Charlie Sheen losing any sleep......
Maybe his being a delusional freak is something to do with the fact he was nonced repeatedly by Hollywood executives

He's massively rich and is already playing the health card like a pro. He'll be fine.
He won't be rich for much longer, his legal team will be banging in the invoices and his victims legal teams will be fighting amongst themselves to get priority.
There won't be much left.
However if he's shrewd he may have put much of his fortune in other peoples name like his kids for instance.

If its one thing the Americans love is seeing the rich and (in)famous stripped of the fame and fortune.
