Maureen Dowd Denies Sending Amy Pascal's Hubby Column In Advance

Source: TheWrap

New Sony leaks suggest New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd previewed a column she was writing about Sony Pictures chief Amy Pascal to Pascal's husband Bernard Weinraub–a former Times reporter– before it was published, but Dowd denied to TheWrap that she had done so:

“I never showed Bernie the column in advance or promised to show it. Bernie is an old friend and the Times’ former Hollywood reporter, and he sometimes gives me ideas for entertainment columns. In January, he suggested a column, inspired by a study cited in the L.A. Times, about the state of women in Hollywood. Amy is a friend and I reassured her before our interview that it wasn't an antagonistic piece. She wasn't the focus of the story, nor was Sony.

I emailed with Bernie and talked to him before I wrote the column in March, getting his perspective on the Hollywood old boys’ club and the progress of women. But I didn't send him the column beforehand.”
