Reporter Nikki Finke nails the Los Angeles Times for not revealing key facts in their recent story about Cindy Garvey’s claim against studio chief Ron Meyer, who allegedly hired now-imprisoned celebrity private eye Anthony Pellicano to intimidate her into withdrawing claims of abuse.
Specifically, I have discovered that the newspaper chose not to publish
that Garvey has accused four ex-boyfriends of domestic violence against
her. In each case, her allegations of domestic violence took place
after the men had broken off their romantic relationships with her; her
charges were dismissed or recanted or not pursued by her or authorities.
Finke’s detailed investigation is pretty incendiary stuff. It will be interesting to see how, or even if, the Times responds.
