If only Hollywood directors could marry...

...but they can.

So it's not news.

Days later, Egan’s lawyer Jeffrey Herman sued three more entertainment industry figures alleging sexual abuse: former NBC Entertainment president Garth Ancier, former Disney executive David Neuman, and theatre producer Gary Goddard.
"Hollywood has a problem with the sexual exploitation of children,” Herman declared. “This is the first of many cases I will be filing to give these victims a voice and to expose the issue.”
Trial lawyers making sexual abuse allegations against Catholic priests can count on explosive national media coverage. This lawyer cannot. There is virtual silence. None of the broadcast or cable news networks is reporting on this lawsuit. The Los Angeles Times and New York Times reports have been brief. USA Today and The Washington Post haven’t located the story at all.
For his part, Singer is accusing Egan of trying to ruin the publicity for his latest “X-Men” film. For the media’s part, this should make the story more newsworthy.
Days after these lawsuits came to light, the networks used the canonization festivities for Pope John Paul II to slam him again, condemning him for inaction during his tenure on lawsuits alleging sexual abuse by priests. The “victims rights advocates” lined up to get their licks in. NBC’s Anne Thompson summarized: “John Paul II has many critics who say he did not do enough – or did very little – to stop the sex abuse crisis.”
The TV networks never tire of long-form journalism attacking the Catholic hierarchy on sex abuse lawsuits. Last year, HBO ran an anti-Catholic screed titled “Mea Maxima Culpa” by Alex Gibney, who called Pope Benedict a “criminal.”
In February, the leftist PBS documentary series “Frontline” aired “Secrets of the Vatican.” Producer Antony Thomas piled up anonymous sources claiming sex parties among the clergy. “There was a lot that came to light, including a man who was, as it were, providing choirboys as rent boys,” Thomas said. “There are a lot of people in the Vatican who are gay who are leading celibate lives, and this is difficult for them. And there are others who are promiscuous.”
All of the secularists at the news networks and HBO don’t need a guilty verdict in a courtroom to pass judgment on Catholics for allegedly tolerating the sexual abuse of children or clergy sex parties in Vatican City. Any accusation from anybody is all it takes.
But Hollywood has the media’s Get Out of Jail Free card, even when children are abused.

Evidently, the Italian courts are giving away Get Out Of Jail Free cards, too:

Progressivism is truly degenerative.
