The fallout from the sexual harassment scandal involving Harvey Weinstein is extending into other prominent media companies. NBC News is struggling to explain its refusal to use the well documented story that was presented to it by a freelance reporter for its own network. Now, Amazon has indefinitely suspended one of its top executives, Roy Price who is the head of the entertainment division, amid allegations of sexual harassment. He is also linked to possible cover ups on behalf of Weinstein and retaliation against the young woman who initiated the original claims against the movie mogul. She claims that Amazon cancelled production of a project that she had submitted and had been approved, after she exposed Weinstein. Price was apparently responsible for the cancellation.
