As there was no court on Monday - this special episode features an exclusive interview with Dr. Elizabeth Loftus, an expert witness for the Harvey Weinstein defense team. Dr. Loftus was recently scheduled to give a Distinguished Lecture at NYU, but the event was abruptly cancelled upon the announcement that she would testify for the defense. This news came after NYU had purchased airline tickets. According to Loftus, the plans had been in place for a long time. Dr. Loftus has asked several times but as yet no reason has been given for the cancellation. Dr. Loftus believes it is because she was expert witness for the Weinstein team. She discusses her disappointment with NYU's action as well as the importance of having free and open discussions on college campuses around the country.
Is this another case of cancel culture? Harvard recently removed a professor from an internal post after students protested when he announced he was joining the Weinstein legal team.
