Harvey Levin to TMZ Staffers: “Don’t Talk to the Reporter from the New Yorker”

Harvey Levin TMZ Exposed

The New Yorker is finalizing a big exposé about the controversial gossip site TMZ.

The magazine’s investigative piece was a year in the making, by reporter Nicholas Schmidle, who was previously nominated for a National Magazine Award for “Getting Bin Laden,” a 2011 chronicle of events leading up to the raid on the terrorist leader’s compound in Abbottabad.

The Hollywood Reporter writes:

“Harvey Levin, the mastermind behind TMZ, is apparently nervous about what the piece holds — or at least nervous enough to tell staffers not to talk to reporter Nicholas Schmidle.”

As The Hollywood Reporter points out, TMZ is both a cash cow and something of an embarrassment for Warner Bros., which owns the outlet:

Levin and TMZ are not often discussed on Time Warner earnings calls, but by most accounts the outlet is said to make tens of millions of dollars for Warner Bros. each year, mostly from the syndicated TMZ newsmagazine television show, which Levin hosts. The former lawyer’s ability to procure court documents, celebrity death and divorce news, sex videos and other unflattering tidbits have led to speculation — especially in L.A.’s legal community, which often grapples with TMZ — that the outlet is paying sources handsomely.

The full article is scheduled to appear in the August 14, 2015 issue of The New Yorker.


  1. If the reporter/ researcher has been investigating tmz for 1 year, why would he need to talk to anyone now. Nothing will come of this. One day all of Harvey’s dirt will come out.

  2. He made somebody mad, hummmm. I read that article and they said he was nervous about his behind the scenes preference for young boys coming out. What you do in the dark, I tell ya!

    • Yeah Girl, I went down that rabbit hole awhile back, the things you will find if you look hard enough.

  3. A Zionist New York Amelakike Rat …… Pays Criminal People Under The Table !!!! SHOCKING !!!! Not !!!

  4. TMZ, preferably Harvey, somehow attained and sat on the Justin Beiber N-word video for a few years. They blackmailed Justin’s people for stories on other celebs and/or Justin, I believe. Something contributed to the video getting released and that’s what you get for making a deal with the devil (TMZ).

    • When I first heard about that I couldn’t believe that this is a real practice. Their T*lmud is full of things like this, sicking.

  5. What goes up comes down nobody stays on top in H’wood forever he’s had a good run amking money off of bullshit fake gossip but he pissed off the wrong people. When he comes down so with the Kardashian whores and their trick coons.

    • Half right…He can not post “fake gossip” if he did his azz would no longer be on tv…he has credible sources. If they were not his joo lawyer azz would never use them.

  6. All big six hollywood studios work with the federal government. One of the goals of hollywood is to distract the populatin while the government signs laws that keep the rich people rich and the poor people poor. A perfect example of this is President Obama signing the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) on December 31st, 2011. TMZ is making tens of millions of dollars for hollywood so they’re here to stay for a very long time. This New Yorker article will not damage Harvey Levin’s reputation.

    • Co-sign on everything except the fact there will be a day where Mr. Gayman, will have to face his demons and the fire will be put to his feet.
