"You Lie Down With Pigs, You Come Up Smellin' Like Garbage"

It's good to know that outfits like CNN are pointing out the curious "coincidence" of the rehashing of the old Woody Allen molestation claims, which had been debunked long ago.

It's Oscar season, after all:

When the Hollywood Foreign Press Association gave Allen a lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes last month, his son tweeted: "Missed the Woody Allen tribute -- did they put the part where a woman publicly confirmed he molested her at age 7 before or after Annie Hall?"

Dylan Farrow's letter appeared in Times columnist Nicholas Kristof's blog just hours before the Writers Guild Awards ceremony, for which Allen had been nominated for best screenplay for "Blue Jasmine." He did not win.

Academy voters begin casting Oscar ballots on February 14. Allen and his cast are up for three Academy Awards, including best original screenplay for Allen, best actress for Cate Blanchett and best supporting actress for Sally Hawkins.

Dylan Farrow admonished actors by name for "turning a blind eye" and for continuing to work with Allen. CNN reached out to the stars that Dylan Farrow challenged by name in her letter but has not yet received responses.

It's all transparent. Mia Farrow, and especially Nicholas Kristof and the New York Times, should be ashamed of themselves.

Obviously they have no sense of shame.

Some scenes from the immortal bad movie classic, which this Farrow stunt reminds me of so much:
