GERALDO RIVERA: There are a few industries were the imbalance is so profound. Where you have an 18, 20, 22 year old girl, she’s coming to one of these powerful Harvey Weinstein type mogul, you know, with the big belly and the hairy chest and the gold and all the rest of it. She knows that she’s got a very limited time. It’s a very fragile window that she has to make it big in a highly competitive industry where if she doesn't make it by 23, 25, in the modeling industry it's 23 skidoo. There is great incentive on both parts.
SEAN HANNITY (HOST): You know the casting couch is true.
RIVERA: I’ve done a dozen exposes, it is absolutely true.
All I'm going to say is that the demonstrators came to Fox because they hated what was going on here. There will be no demonstrators in front of NBC. And The New Yorker which is being applauded for running the Ronan Farrow piece, The New Yorker only ran that after The New York Times had already killed Weinstein. And all of the so-called courage of the people coming forward now? It takes no courage once the perpetrator is dead.
HANNITY: Especially the rich and successful powerful Hollywood women.
