Anthony Bourdain Talks Harvey Weinstein, Clintons in Final Interview | Consequence of Sound
The late chef and author also took Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders fans to task
It’s been just over a month since the suicide of author, chef, and TV personality Anthony Bourdain. One of his final interviews, an in-depth discussion with Maria Bustillos of the newly-launched blockchain-based web magazine Popula, was conducted back in February and has just been published. The conversation covered a wide array of subjects, with Bourdain giving some characteristically blunt comments about many sociopolitical matters.
Prior to his death, Bourdain was dating Asia Argento, one of the women at the center of the New York Times article that exposed Harvey Weinstein. As such, Bourdain was an outspoken supporter of the #MeToo movement and a staunch opponent of Weinstein. While he and Bustillos were discussing how the only way to stop the immoral acts of powerful people is to publicly humiliate them, Bourdain imagined the former A-list producer forced to eat at a low-rent restaurant in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was his way of explaining that while he’d love “to see him, you know beaten to death in his cell,” it’s actually more satisfying to watch horrible individuals suffer the consequences.

Re: What Can Men Do? « Jacob Kaplan-Moss
"All in all, Jeff does a great job demonstrating what men should never do but a rather poor job showing what we should. We should be listening to what women and other marginalized people have said and written, even when it’s uncomfortable for us. We should be boosting their signal, instead of our egos. That’s how we make things better."

Misogynist conversations women have all the time | Penelope Trunk Careers
"Maybe you have not said all of these phrases, but you have said one of these, and you need to own up to it. Because all the #metoos of the world are not going to change things without you taking personal responsibility for the ways you put down other women."

An Apology and a Pledge | East Bay Express
As the paper’s publisher and onetime editor, I consider furthering our journalistic mission to be my life’s work. Yet as the person most responsible for our current troubles, I now feel a need to directly address our readers.

One night about a month ago, I read some week-old online coverage that did not live up to my editorial standards. So, I took the stories down the next morning and promptly explained my concerns to the author and editors.

One story described white people singing along to live hip-hop songs that contained the N-word. This is a worthy topic for coverage, and I said as much. But while referring to hateful words subsequently reclaimed by the communities they once oppressed, I said a couple of those words aloud. I should not have done so and am extremely sorry that my remark caused others pain.

I also should not have unilaterally taken down the articles. Instead, I should have respected our editorial structure and taken my feedback directly to our editorial management so that the editors and author might have addressed my concerns without permanently removing the pieces from our website.
I also have an apology and a pledge. I fulfilled my life's dream by becoming Publisher of the Express in 2007 when Mr. Buel was owner and editor of the paper. In 2009, Mr. Buel inappropriately kissed me at a work event. Though he was written up for the conduct, he never owned his actions, at least not at the time. I didn't know that was sexual assault. I didn't know how much that'd stick with me, in my psyche. Being a woman in publishing since I was a teenager, and of a pre-#metoo age, and with my particular upbringing, my only concern at the time was for the company and the staff, which meant not making a stink and acting as if it hadn't happened. But I was wrong to do so, and I apologize to the EBX employees and freelancers for not having been as strong as the folks who today are making principled choices to speak up and to leave the jobs they love. I admire you all. And I pledge to not be quiet in the future. It doesn't help anyone -- not the victim, not their peers, not the guilty party. I care about ALL of them, and that means ending silence. [I was laid off from EBX in July 2017, Mr. Buel's first action upon becoming the Publisher/managing owner.] -- Jody Colley
