Les Moonves, Julie Chen escape scandal on David Geffen’s $590 million yacht    

It seems that once you become one of the world’s super-rich and super-powerful, you might get an invitation to hang out on David Geffen’s $590 million yacht in some glorious, sunny locale.

 

That’s even the case if you’re Ivanka Trump in 2016 and your father is the controversial Republican presidential nominee, or you’re Les Moonves and Julie Chen, and you need to escape a sexual misconduct scandal that has devastated at least one of your careers.      https://www.mercuryn...-million-yacht/

 

Moonves resigned as CEO and chairman of CBS in September after multiple women accused him of sexual harassment and assault in a pair of scathing exposés in the New Yorker.

 

 “Les isn’t hanging his head in shame; he’s living it up on a yacht in St. Barts. It seems that the Hollywood moguls look out for each other, no matter what.”

The CBS network’s internal investigation brought the total number of alleged victims to 17, and detailed how Moonves allegedly demanded sex from female colleagues before and after he came to CBS in 1995, saying he’d give them acting and other work opportunities in exchange for intimate relations. The alleged misconduct included the former CBS chief demanding oral sex from at least four employees and having an employee “on call” to perform oral sex on him.

 

For Geffen, the allegations apparently are not a problem. But the 75-year-old record producer-turned-studio executive and Moonves go back at least two decades, Page Six added.

Oprah spends her birthday in St Barts aboard David Geffen's megayacht watching the Michael Jackson documentary  https://www.dailymai...-Neverland.html

 

The billionaire birthday girl jetted out of California on Monday and headed down to the island nation, 

 

Geffen has recently posted two photos of himself and the King of Pop on his Instagram from the 1980s . 

 

No one appears more on Geffen's Instagram than Oprah however, who is a frequent guest aboard the megayacht.

She was on the yacht this past August for a trip around Italy with Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Bradley Cooper and Lloyd and Laura Blankfein. 

 

That trip has become an annual tradition for Oprah, who in 2017 enjoyed the Amalfi coast with Geffen and guests Diane Sawyer, Barry Diller and Diane von Furstenberg.

Given that none of these people are getting away with anything, and most of them have done nothing more than be among Geffen's friends, what is he enabling?  What is your point?
