Oscar-nominated and Emmy-winning filmmaker, Robert Weide, has written a series of essays proving that no evidence has ever been found to corroborate Dylan Farrow’s allegations against Woody Allen. In “The Woody Allen Allegations: Not so Fast,” Weide identifies 10 common misconceptions about Woody Allen and Soon-Yi Previn and also takes a critical look at the allegations that were first levied against Woody during a highly contentious custody battle.

In “Hard Questions for Ronan Farrow – An Open Letter,” Weide characterizes Ronan and Mia Farrow’s continued efforts to garner public support for Dylan’s unfounded allegations as disingenuous, irresponsible and even dangerous.

On December 13, 2017, Weide published “A Q&A with Dylan Farrow,” in which he responds to specific questions raised in Dylan’ Farrow’s Los Angeles Times’ op-ed.

In his most recent essay, “Moses Farrow Speaks Out,” Weide provides a platform for Moses Farrow, Dylan’s brother, to speak out about the emotional and physical abuse he endured growing up in the Farrow household.  He also recounts the numerous times Mia Farrow forced him to lie, even about the most seemingly inconsequential things.

New York Times columnist Bret Stephens recently asked, “shouldn’t the weight of available evidence, to say nothing of the presumption of innocence, extend to the court of public opinion too?” Stephens wisely draws parallels between the smear campaigns being launched against Woody Allen and other regrettable instances in which people have drawn the wrong conclusion due to human bias and a rush to judgement.

Despite the fact that Dylan Farrow’s allegations were thoroughly investigated and found to be untrue 25 years ago, and Moses Farrow’s public accounts of Mia Farrow’s coaching and abuse, Woody Allen’s trial by media continues, according to Paul Markey.

According to Justin Levine, Mia Farrow used an edited tape of her daughter Dylan accusing Woody Allen of sexual assault to push her own agenda. Justin Levine addresses the editing of the tape, Mia filming her daughter in the nude and the overwhelming circumstantial evidence that Mia leaked the video to the media.

In “Defense of Woody Allen,” Christian Butler argues that those actors that have decided to distance themselves from Woody Allen in order to benefit their own careers in the current #MeToo environment are actually obstructing justice by ignoring two investigations that concluded Dylan Farrow’s allegations were unfounded. Butler says that these actors’ behavior is promoting an atmosphere in which one is guilty until proven innocent.
