Ken Auletta on "Hollywood Ending" and the fall of Harvey Weinstein

Disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein is serving a 23-year-prison sentence for rape

and other acts of sexual assault – crimes first exposed in The New York Times.

Journalist Ken Auletta tried to break that story in 2002 while working on a profile of Weinstein for The New Yorker magazine.

"I described his brutal behavior, verbally and physically, in

terms of fist fights and wrestling matches with people," Auletta said.

"But I couldn't nail him on what I believed he was also guilty of, which was abusing women sexually.

Correspondent Lesley Stahl asked, "Would you say that catching Harvey Weinstein became an obsession with you?"

"I had a semi-obsession," Auletta replied. "I wanted to expose the guy, sure."

His semi-obsession grew, even after Weinstein was caught.
