Freeman Demands CNN Retraction

Morgan Freeman Goes On Defensive Against CNN, Demands Retraction, Apology About Sexual Harassment, Misconduct

Hollywood lawyer Robert Schwartz has sent a ten page letter to CNN’s Jeff Zucker demanding a retraction and apology for the network’s story about Oscar winner Morgan Freeman regarding sexual misconduct and harassment.

The story was CNN’s Chloe Melas and comes on the heels of the #MeToo movement and accusations against powerful men in Hollywood.

Schwartz’s letter questions Melas’s reporting.

The lawyer’s letter says:…
“at just this early stage, our review confirms that:
• Of the three people CNN identified as being a “victim,” the first, CNN’s own Chloe Melas, had no reasonable basis to have interpreted what Mr. Freeman said or did at the Going In Style interview last year as having been directed at her or as any form of harassment. The videotape confirms that his statement had nothing to do with her and was not harassing. And an independent third party, the Warner Bros. Human Resources Department, investigated her claim and concluded that it was not supported by the facts.
• The second person CNN identified, Tyra Martin, has gone on record twice since CNN published the article to state that CNN misrepresented what she said to CNN and that Mr. Freeman did not harass her • The third person CNN identified, Lori McCreary, told CNN that Mr. Freeman never harassed her. And as to CNN’s gratuitous sideswipe at Ms. McCreary herself, yet another independent party investigated the claim when CNN raised it, and found it to be meritless.
• Ms. Melas baited and prodded supposed “witnesses” to say bad things about Mr. Freeman and tried to get them to confirm her bias against him. Thus, no reader of the article can have any confidence that any of the anonymous sources, which make up the balance of CNN’s article, can be relied upon at all.
Based on those facts, and the additional information presented below, it is clear that CNN has defamed Mr. Freeman. CNN has inflicted serious injury on his reputation and career. At a minimum, CNN immediately needs to issue a retraction and apologize to Mr. Freeman through the same channels, and with the same level of attention, that it used to unjustly attack him on May 24. CNN also needs to retract the portions of the story that concern Lori McCreary and apologize to her for defaming and injuring her.”

Bottom line will be whether or not women in the story do or do not confirm it. Seems unlikely that it’s all made up. I hope it turns out to be just because he’s one of my favorite actors.

No, the bottom line is that you were talking out of your ass. A sympathy apology for a theoretical hurt feeling is not the same as an apology for wrongdoing. That you, and others like you, conflate the two is a huge problem in this country.

A sympathy apology for theoretical hurt feelings? You’ve derailed.

Not at all. That's precisely what he offered.

Quote:
“Anyone who knows me or has worked with me knows I am not someone who would intentionally offend or knowingly make anyone feel uneasy,” Freeman said in a statement obtained by Variety. “I apologize to anyone who felt uncomfortable or disrespected — that was never my intent.”
Quote:
I admit that I am someone who feels a need to try to make women—and men—feel appreciated and at ease around me. As a part of that, I would often try to joke with and compliment women, in what I thought was a light-hearted and humorous way.

Clearly I was not always coming across the way I intended. And that is why I apologized Thursday and will continue to apologize to anyone I might have upset, however unintentionally.

But I also want to be clear: I did not create unsafe work environments. I did not assault women. I did not offer employment or advancement in exchange for sex. Any suggestion that I did so is completely false.

Why do you think retailers train their employees to never say,”I’m sorry, are you okay?” If someone falls?

I’ve now been called “obtuse” and told I’m talking out of my ass. It’s obvious you are all blind Shawshank Redemption homers.

Seriously, read the CNN story. Somebody publishes something with all those specific details, and your response is to defend your intentions and provide a “sympathy apology?”

I’d be blasting away at the examples line-by-line. The one celebrity who convinced me more than any other by their response to getting called out by the #metoo movement? Warren Sapp. He told his side of the story on every allegation. Refuted the bizarre stories with his more believable accounts.

That's because you're being obtuse and talking out of your ass.

You're erroneously trying to conflate things again, and you're making yourself look like a fool in the process.

What you think is the truth of what he actually did, and what we're discussing about his apologies and your inane response to them, are two separate things.
