On “The Story,” Sandra Smith interviewed the author of a New York Times report that said money-wielding “partisans” are seeking to “exploit sexual harassment claims.”
Reporter Kenneth Vogel said there may be a partisan element to “exploited” stories of sexual misconduct for the purpose of political gain.
Smith said the report may lead to the public questioning the “integrity of the #MeToo movement” that brings attention to sexual harassment victims.
Vogel said that Media Matters founder David Brock, a former conservative writer turned progressive activist who Smith said “declared war on Fox News,” is one of the figures in his report.
He said Brock and other operatives helped funnel hundreds of thousands of dollars to famous feminist attorney Lisa Bloom in order to “push more female victims into the spotlight.” (Read more from “NYT Reporter: Political Activists Exploiting Sexual Harassment Claims for Own Gains” HERE)
