Fake news! Roseanne reruns Pulled and replaced with Cosby - what does that say about our values?

Hands up I fell for fake news. That will teach me to believe every tweet and retweet from Donald Trump! What i wrote was:

The show Roseanne has been scrapped following some explicitly racist tweets by its star Roseanne Barr. ABC did the right thing. It has also pulled any re-runs of old shows. Perhaps that is a bit tough on other cast members who will lose royalties but there is a very strong case for it.

Is Harvey Weinstein more evil than Herman Goring - justice Hollywood style

After years of pretending they knew nothing the big names of Hollywood have taken action - Harvey Weinstein has been booted out of The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the organisers of the Oscars. That will come as a relief to Roman Polanski (refuses to answer charges of child sex abuse) and Bill Cosby (a spot of bother with sexual harassment allegations) as neither will now have to rub shoulders with Weinstein. Polanski and Cosby retain their memberships.
