John Oliver uses Wag the Dog reunion Q&A to ambush Dustin Hoffman

Oh please, Oliver looks like a perv from Central Casting, who is he to throw stones.

Oliver should ask Hoffman about his recent male lovers. All in their 20s, including gogo boys...

From what I can tell on the video, Oliver kept going because Hoffman just kept coming up short on his responses. It's not as if Oliver laid trap after trap and Hoffman just kept falling into them. Oliver was only trying to get straight, honest responses; Hoffman didn't do himself any favours by persisting on defending the indefensible. That tangent about Tootsie was desperate, embarrassing, and did not ring true at all.

by Anonymousreply 25Last Tuesday at 7:12 AM

Right, R25. But the time factor around these allegations prevents many from seeking justice. The alleged perps' counted on the statute of limitations and the complicit silence of those who financially benefited. Sometimes the court of public opinion is all you have. I do agree with you that this is a dangerous tactic. Hopefully this situation will convince people currently being harassed and abused to report it, immediately, to both HR and law enforcement.

Hoffman admitted to participating in the humorous gang rape of his brother's girlfriend. He told the heartwarming story to Playboy in 2009. He said the girl was in a back bedroom at a party, being visited by different guys. Not one to pass up such an opportunity, he took a turn. When he went in, she called him by his brother's name and he pretended to be his brother. Of course, if she really thought that she was fucking his older brother, I'm pretty sure she was extremely intoxicated. So, fair game. When someone opened the door, letting light shine on Dustin's face, the girl screamed! It was hilarious!!! As Hoffman explained, she was a total "nymphomaniac." He lamented that you can't say that anymore about women. Nymphomaniac. Sad. Of course, he should get a pass on using that word since he acquired such tremendous insight into female sexuality from from wearing makeup and heels on the set of Tootsie. So there. Shame on you, John Oliver. And you're not even hot!

Translation = Dragging someones name through the mud and ruining their reputation and livelihood is perfectly okay even if there is no way to prove if the allegations are true or not. However, posting fake news on Facebook is not OK if it influences the election? Why not if we're going by the court of public opinion?

Why is it we never hear about cases where the accused is absolved of any wrongdoing but their alleged crimes are plastered all over the news. Once accused, the taint of suspicion never leaves. John Oliver is in a position of influence so people will believe whatever he has to say without investigating it further. It's totally irresponsible.

I think the NYT, the Post, Vanity Fair have done a responsible job reporting on this issue. It can probably be argued they have not always been responsible but they are now. This exchange is an example of irresponsible behavior that does more harm than good. At one point Oliver criticizes Hoffman for not proving it didn't happen. A feat that is next to impossible.

If Oliver wants to be taken seriously as something other than a comedian I suggest he needs to act accordingly. "Prove it didn't happen" is something I expect from Rush Limbaugh.

by Anonymousreply 57Last Wednesday at 6:53 AM

Oh the irony: everyone bitching about a witch hunt and "what about false allegations?" keep lying about what's been said and done.

R51 "Asking someone to prove they didn't do something or claiming to have firsthand knowledge or something that happened over 30 years ago even though you weren't there are the very definition of a witch hunt."

No he didn't and no he didn't. Oliver's comments about Hoffman not proving it didn't happen were in response to Hoffman's statement that what he did didn’t reflect who he is as a person. Oliver's point was "you did this, you didn't deny it, you're just trying to cop out by saying don't judge me for it."

Oliver's EXACT words, talking about Hoffman's "I am sorry. It is not reflective of who I am" comment:

“It’s that part of the response to this stuff that pisses me off. It is reflective of who you were. You’ve given no evidence to show that it didn’t happen. There was a period of time when you were a creeper around women. It feels like a cop-out to say, ‘Well, this isn’t me.’ Do you understand how that feels like a dismissal?”‘

See? He's not saying "you must PROVE it didn't happen." He's saying Hoffman's response amounts to "don't judge me" while Hoffman's not even saying or proving it's not true.

Taking people's words out of context and misrepresenting them is the very definition of a witch hunt.

r74 Leo Frank was guilty of raping and murdering Mary Phagan, his 13 year old sweatshop employee.

Then Leo Frank's wealthy NYC Jewish friends bribed the governor of Georgia into blocking Leo's death sentence.

It's the same kind of Jewish crap that we're seeing today, with mensches like Harvey Weinstein. Leo Frank even employed an army of private investigators to alter the crime scene, and pressure witnesses. Just like Harvey Weinstein hired Jewish Mossad operatives to pressure victims and get fictitious narratives published in the media about how Weinstein was innocent, and being persecuted by racist gentiles.

[quote]Michael Rapaport, known for his edgy, eccentric portrayals onscreen, is in trouble for some some real-life rude behavior.

[quote]In a case of love-gone-bad Hollywood-style, the 28-year-old actor has admitted in court to harassing ex-girlfriend Lili Taylor. The thick-accented Rapaport, whose credits include Cop Land, Mighty Aphrodite, Beautiful Girls and Higher Learning, pleaded guilty to aggravated harassment in a New York courtroom Monday. He told the judge he called Taylor 21 times in four days after they split up. Then, on May 17, 1997, he showed up at Taylor's apartment at 1 a.m. and repeatedly banged on her window.

[quote]He was arrested the following day, after Taylor (Ransom, Short Cuts, Mystic Pizza), 30, complained to police that he ignored her requests to leave. She claimed Rapaport said he wanted "to get back with" her and that his actions left her "seriously annoyed." New York Supreme Court Justice Arlene Goldberg issued a protection order that forces Rapaport to keep away from Taylor. Although he was spared jail time, the actor was ordered to seek counseling twice a month for a year.

I believe he has changed his outlook since then as he hasn't been involved in any public scandals and has led a fairly private life. Oliver shouldn't speak for Hoffman's accusers. If he has a beef with Hoffman, then it was the wrong choice to have him moderate a panel with Hoffman in it. Of course, Hoffman will defend himself as we all would.

I love Anne. She's the best we've got - & what a loony/character she is.

I remember when she wrote her autobiography - she was doing the rounds & BOOOM >> 9/11.

So she never got to promote it properly.

I couldn't get through it.

I'll give it another chance.

YOU do the math.
