After Aziz Ansari Fallout, What's Next for #MeToo?

January 18, 2018

Babe.net's piece accusing Aziz Ansari of sexual misconduct is igniting a national conversation about consent and journalistic integrity. The Cut's Anna Silman and Latina Magazine's Taiia Young join Cheddar to discuss the future of the #MeToo movement in light of Ansari's story.

The writer of the piece issued a strong rebuke of HLN's Ashleigh Banfield after she criticized the story. Silman and Young weigh in on whether the charged email threatens to undermine the publication. Then, we speculate about the future of the #MeToo movement and how the recent allegations will change media coverage moving forward.

Plus, "Grey's Anatomy" actress Ellen Pompeo opened up about pay disparity and her contract negotiations in a new piece in The Hollywood Reporter. Pompeo goes into great detail about how she became television's highest-paid actress. Silman and Young discuss just how significant a step this is in advancing the conversation on the wage gap.
