I know this is a folk message board...and I am NOT trying to bring up that whole issue but this part jumped out at me...
"More than a decade earlier, in the spring of 1985, Janet Jones was attempting to break into the industry as a writer. The producer Mike Marvin liked an idea that Jones had for a screenplay, and helped broker a meeting between her and Moonves, who at the time was a vice-president at Twentieth Century Fox. It was Jones’s first pitch meeting in Hollywood. Moonves’s assistant scheduled a late-afternoon appointment at his office."
..the next couple of paragraphs go on to detail the incident that involved Moonves...
..and then his name appears again:
"Mike Marvin told me that he remembers introducing Jones to Moonves, and that she was troubled by the meeting. He said that he confronted Moonves about it at a gathering, saying, “Whatever happened, that girl was upset.” Moonves, Marvin said, became furious. “We definitely had a screaming match over this,” Marvin told me.
I'm not sure what to make of it but a quick check of IMDB says there's only one Mike Marvin....
