Harvey Levin, the openly gay founder of TMZ had a private meeting with President Trump this week.
Several TMZ staff members have been expressing their concerns over the close ties Levin has to the controversial new president. It’s been reported that Levin met with Trump for about an hour the day after the President’s first address to Congress. Apparently, the meeting also included a tour of the presidential residence and the Lincoln bedroom.
Levin’s employees have remarked that TMZ’s coverage of Trump is overtly positive, rivaling the likes of Fox News. A staffer said: “Many people in the newsroom are uncomfortable with Harvey’s overall Trump coverage.”
Another person adds: “All I can tell you is everyone thinks it’s really gross.”
Apparently Harvey Levin has been courting Trump to try to get an interview for his upcoming Fox News show “OBJECTified,” which is supposed to debut in the fall of 2017.
