The Harvey Weinstein news "shows sexual harassment is a wider problem ignored too long," L.A. Times' Josh Rottenberg and Amy Kaufman write in a front-pager:

"As painful as the Weinstein scandal has been for an industry that likes to project a loftier image of itself, some believe it could ultimately lead to a long-overdue shift in attitudes... [M]any are wondering which power player might be the next to face similar accusations."

More:

  • "'Man in the High Castle' executive producer Isa Hackett went public [yesterday] with allegations that she had been harassed by Amazon Studios programming chief Roy Price ... Within hours of Hackett's statement, Amazon put Price on a leave of absence."
  • "That same day, actress Rose McGowan took to Twitter to accuse Amazon of canceling a script she had in development there after she 'told the head of your studio that [Weinstein] raped me.'"

P.S. NYPD, Scotland Yard probe Weinstein: "In London, the Metropolitan police are assessing a sexual abuse allegation made against Weinstein, while ... New York police are carrying out a 'review' looking for new complaints." (The Guardian)

Senate Democrats target billionaires

After failing to get a deal on other planned tax increases, key Senate Democrats are pivoting to a billionaires' income tax to pay for President Biden's social spending.

The big picture: No advanced economy has attempted anything similar on such a scale.

Anti-abortion activists' Supreme Court dreams are coming true

This is the moment the conservative legal movement has been building toward for decades: The solidly conservative Supreme Court is about to hear two major abortion cases within a month of each other.

Why it matters: All of this is likely to end with significant new restrictions on abortion and a clear path for Republican-led states to win the next big abortion cases, too — the culmination of a long and bitter fight for control of the judiciary.
