If only people who worked in Hollywood were not under a vow of celibacy...

then we wouldn’t be see­ing sto­ries like this:

Mar­tin Weiss, a 47-​year-​old Hol­ly­wood man­ager who rep­re­sented child actors, was charged in Los Ange­les on Dec. 1 with sex­u­ally abus­ing a for­mer client. His accuser, who was under 12 years old dur­ing the time of the alleged abuse, reported to author­i­ties that Weiss told him “what they were doing was com­mon prac­tice in the enter­tain­ment indus­try.” Weiss has pleaded not guilty.

On Nov. 21, Fer­nando Rivas, 59, an award-​winning com­poser for “Sesame Street,” was arraigned on charges of coerc­ing a child “to engage in sex­u­ally explicit con­duct” in South Car­olina. The Juilliard-​trained com­poser was also charged with pro­duc­tion and dis­tri­b­u­tion of child pornography.

Well it’s not as if some­body was telling us this was going on months ago

I can tell you that the No. 1 prob­lem in Hol­ly­wood was and is and always will be pedophilia. That’s the biggest prob­lem for chil­dren in this indus­try. … It’s the big secret,” Feld­man said.

The “cast­ing couch,” which is the old Hol­ly­wood ref­er­ence to actors being expected to offer sex for roles, applied to chil­dren, Feld­man said. “Oh, yeah. Not in the same way. It’s all done under the radar,” he said.

I was sur­rounded by [pedophiles] when I was 14 years old. … Didn’t even know it. It wasn’t until I was old enough to real­ize what they were and what they wanted … till I went, Oh, my God. They were every­where,” Feld­man, 40, said.

I’m sure after this story we will see Morn­ing Joe team talk about this in detail.

Update: It’s impor­tant that this story is trend­ing on Hotair but the prob­lem is it not on local or national TV.

Update 2: Missed a link, fixed.

Martin Weiss, a 47-year-old Hollywood manager who represented child actors, was charged in Los Angeles on Dec. 1 with sexually abusing a former client. His accuser, who was under 12 years old during the time of the alleged abuse, reported to authorities that Weiss told him “what they were doing was common practice in the entertainment industry.” Weiss has pleaded not guilty.

On Nov. 21, Fernando Rivas, 59, an award-winning composer for “Sesame Street,” was arraigned on charges of coercing a child “to engage in sexually explicit conduct” in South Carolina. The Juilliard-trained composer was also charged with production and distribution of child pornography.
