What Weinstein cost Hollywood is the right to self-righteous posturing

Glenn Harland Reynolds (Instapundit) asks at USA Today,

If people realize the system is exploitative and inhuman, will they still watch movies?:

They aren’t turning on Weinstein because they suddenly found out what he was like. They always knew. They’re turning on Weinstein because America found out what he was like, and they’re hoping to distract people before they draw the correct conclusion about what Hollywood in general is like. More.

Reality check: Why would anyone take Hollywood has-beens’ faux outrage about, say, Trump’s jock talk from years ago now that we have had more than a snootful of Weinstein?

Is it getting to the point that people who take Hollywood seriously are, um, Not Cool? Has it come to this?
