The rapid fall of Hollywood kingpin Harvey Weinstein still has a lot of people asking how he could have gotten away with behavior that was so widely known for so very long. Part of the problem, it nows appears, was that the press was running interference for him.
This is not a day for hot takes, or political grandstanding. What police officials believe was a lone gunman, named Stephen Paddock, killed more than 50 people, and wounded at least 500 more at a music festival in Las Vegas overnight. The urge to pin this crime on a specific political agenda is very strong.
