Harvey Weinstein: "Hollywood Has The Best Moral Compass"

Your quote of the day, from the co-founder of Mirimax:

[Movie Mogul Harvey] Weinstein said that people generally misunderstand what happened to Polanski at sentencing. He’s not convinced public opinion is running against the filmmaker and dismisses the categorization of Hollywood as amoral. “Hollywood has the best moral compass, because it has compassion,” Weinstein said.

Just ask Whoopi ‘Not Rape-Rape’ Goldberg, child advocate.

Meanwhile, Anne Applebaum, one of Polanski’s few supporters outside of the film world, keeps digging and digging.
