    I am so cynical about what he tried to pull off during his trial that I'm afraid I don't believe that this is not just some further ploy to get him off proper clink and into a nice cushy jail via a week in a hospital room.

    I'm genuinely unsure if I'd prefer him to die from this or have to suffer a decade or so in prison before dying there.

    Prison officials have told the local paper that Weinstein is one of two inmates to test positive for COVID-19

    I think that the choice was determined more by proximity to New York while ensuring distance from major media than anything else. I wonder if they drove him up there.

    Nice place to spend the rest of your life. /sarcasm

    Buffalo is where he and Bob are from, but whether that had any impact on the location is beyond me.

    Yeah. Whatever Corbyn is or isn't, he certainly isn't associated with this rapist. His school kid behavior of chest pains makes me all the more happy he has a sentence long enough that he can't do this bullshit forever.

    I'll just leave it there, then.

    Other threads are already dedicated to the topic. I don't think any minds can be changed by debating it because judgments seem to be based on gut feelings in the absence of any smoking guns. For example, it's entirely subjective whether you think his meeting a Palestinian leader implies endorsement of that leader's utterances about Jews. I was just addressing the name pronunciation issue specifically, where I think Corbyn made an error of judgment but not in any way an antisemitic one.

    Not directed at you WOM. it's just a subject that I've seen done to absolute death on social media and I really have no desire to ever have to sit through it again.

    He's not an antisemite but I think you have to respect the way a person chooses to pronounce their own name.

    It would be terrible if this convicted rapist died in jail.

    Absolutely terrible.

    There was a good tweet about calling him 'convicted rapist' instead of 'disgraced movie producer '.

    He was referred to on the front page of one of the papers as a "rapist mogul" today. Mrs Thistle said it made him sound like that was actually the way he became a mogul. Like a newspaper mogul.owns newspapers.
