Lisa Bloom provided the playbook being used (Lisa is not a feminist)

Repost from THE COMMON ILLS:

Lisa Bloom provided the playbook being used (Lisa is not a feminist)

The smear campaign against Tara Reade?  Sounds like something out of the Lisa Bloom playbook.  Let's note this e-mail she wrote to Harvey.  And let's note that Lisa Bloom recently Tweeted that she believes Tara but will be voting for Joe Biden.  It's a feminist position, you understand.

Who's paying the whore now that Harvey Weinstein is in prison?  Lisa is not a feminist.  She's trash.  Read her e-mail to Harvey below and grasp how she has lied and manipulated the press.  She didn't make a mistake, she purposely set out to defame and discredit Rose McGowan who was raped by Harvey Weinstein.  And her claims about not realizing what was going on?  She's asking to see a copy of the NDA so you can prosecute Rose for violating it -- that's the NDA about Harvey raping Rose.

Lisa Bloom is not a feminist.  She is a whore.  And you need to remember that with all that's going on right now with people attacking Tara. You can find a photo copy of the e-mail in this Tweet.


It was a treat to speak with you today, though yes, we'd all prefer better circumstances.  I've spent the rest of the day reading Jack and Sara's thorough reports about Rose, who truly comes across a pathological liar, and also your former assistant . . . who seems to be less of a concern.

I also read through a lot of Rose's Twitter feed, to get a sense of her, and watched her short film, Dawn.  (I'm no film critic, but I found it dreadful, but telling as to who Rose is: boy meets girl.  Girl trusts boy.  Boy murders girl.  All men suck.  The end.)

I feel equipped to help you against the Roses of the world, because I have represented so many of them.  They start out as impressive, bold women, but the more one presses for evidence, the weaknesses and lies are revealed.  She doesn't seem to have much going on these days except her rapidly escalating identity as a feminist warrior, which seems to be entirely based on her online rants. 

For her to keep her "RoseArmy" following she must continue ramping up the outrageousness of her diatribes.

Clearly she must be stopped in her ridiculous, defamatory attacks on you.  She is dangerous.  You are right to be concerned.

Options after my initial read, which I can flesh out on our next call:

1. Initiating friendly contact with her through me or other good intermediary, and after establishing a relationship work out a "win-win."  Key question: what does she want?  To direct, it appears?

2. Counterops online campaign to push back and call her out as a pathological liar.  A few well placed articles now will go a long way if things blow up for us down the line.  We can place an article re her becoming increasingly unglued, so that when someone Googles her this is what pops up and she is discredited.  We have all the facts based on publicly available information.  This can begin simultaneous with #1.

3.  Cease and desist letter from me, warning her of the violation of agreement with you and putting her on notice of causes of action for CA claims of false light, invasion of privacy, defamation etc Rish: She posts the letter online, generating heat and backlash. (Sara: I need to see the agreement, please.)

4.  You and I come out publicly in a pre-emptive interview where you talk about evolving on women's issues, prompted by the death of your mother, Trump pussy grab tape, and maybe nasty unfounded hurtful rumors about you.  This will be headline grabbing if you express genuine contrition for anyone who hurt you, while emphasizing it was always adult consensual behavior.  You thought that was enough at the time but now realize it's nuanced, that a power imbalance means something, etc.  You reached out to me to help understand rapidly evolving social mores around sexual misconduct because you are a good and decent person (as evidenced by your life's work making films on important social issues and extremely generous philanthropy).  Examples: Charlie Sheen, as women were set to come out against him re HIV status, did a Today Show interview recently where he came out with it himself, receiving massive praise.  I represented a few of the women and there stories were largely drowned out by his interview and the love he got for it.  It is so key from a reputation management stand-point to be the first to tell the story.  I strongly recommend this.  If you agree, I'd like to come out and mett with you to go over the story in some detail, so this is done for maximum effectiveness.  You should be the hero of your story, not the villain.  This is very doable.

5. Start the Weinstein foundation, focusing on gender equality in film, etc.  Or establish the Weinstein Standards, which seek to have one-third of films directed by women, or written by women, or passing the Bechdel test (two named female characters talk ago each other about something besides a man whatever.  Announce you will immediately raise the standards re gender parity in very specific ways on all films under your control.  Announce partnership with Geena Davis' group that works for gender equality in film, for example by mandating that half of all extras in crowd scenes will be female.  You get the idea.  These details can be worked out, but the point is you decide to be a leader and raise the bar in concrete, headline-grabbing way.

6) Positive reputation management.  I Googled your name, and a few obnoxious articles pop up.  I work with the leading reputation management company that can backlink to the positive articles to make a "firewall" which prevents negative pieces from ranking well on Google.  Your first page of Google is key as 95% never go beyond the first Google page.  Let's improve this.  Easy to do.  This should happen simultaneously with other option.

A reminder: will you please connect me with David Boies so that I can get retained?

Also, given that your emails with the Clinton campaign were hacked recently, I recommend you set up a secure new email account for emails with this team.  We shouldn't be emailing on these sensitive matters to your company email as your IT people and others may have access.

Thanks and really honored to brought into this team.

Talk tomorrow?
