NEW YORK — If in a movie , Harvey Weinstein would probably cut the scenes of sexual harassment that have been described against him. They're too cliché.
The hotel room seductions, the massage requests, the coercive suggestions. They are, as the Los Angeles Times editorial board called them, "classics of the genre." The encounters depict a Hollywood culture immediately recognizable, one where power-broker sleaziness is an accepted and acknowledged part of the business.
