 “In 2004, I was still a fairly new reporter at The New York Times when I got the green light to look into oft-repeated allegations of sexual misconduct by Weinstein,” Waxman recalls in her piece.

 Waxman says she began by looking into Fabrizio Lombardo, the head of Miramax Italy who made $400,00 a year with little to no film experience.

 “The story I reported never ran,” Waxman asserts.
