Mika Brzezinski did not buy into actor Woody Allen's recent dismissal of his adoptive daughter's allegations that he sexually assaulted her as a child. "I believe her," she said of Dylan Farrow on Monday's "Morning Joe." "I'm never going to...

'Whatís your favorite Woody Allen movie? Before you answer, you should know: when I was seven years old, Woody Allen took me by the hand and led me into a dim, closet-like attic on the second floor of our house. He told me to lay on my stomach and play with my brotherís electric train set. Then he sexually assaulted me. He talked to me while he did it, whispering that I was a good girl, that this was our secret, promising that weíd go to Paris and Iíd be a star in his movies. I remember staring at that toy train, focusing on it as it traveled in its circle around the attic. To this day, I find it difficult to look at toy trains.

For as long as I could remember, my father had been doing things to me that I didnít like. I didnít like how often he would take me away from my mom, siblings and friends to be alone with him. I didnít like it when he would stick his thumb in my mouth. I didnít like it when I had to get in bed with him under the sheets when he was in his underwear. I didnít like it when he would place his head in my naked lap and breathe in and breathe out. I would hide under beds or lock myself in the bathroom to avoid these encounters, but he always found me. These things happened so often, so routinely, so skillfully hidden from a mother that would have protected me had she known, that I thought it was normal. I thought this was how fathers doted on their daughters. But what he did to me in the attic felt different. I couldnít keep the secret anymore.

When I asked my mother if her dad did to her what Woody Allen did to me, I honestly did not know the answer. I also didnít know the firestorm it would trigger. I didnít know that my father would use his sexual relationship with my sister to cover up the abuse he inflicted on me. I didnít know that he would accuse my mother of planting the abuse in my head and call her a liar for defending me. I didnít know that I would be made to recount my story over and over again, to doctor after doctor, pushed to see if Iíd admit I was lying as part of a legal battle I couldnít possibly understand. At one point, my mother sat me down and told me that I wouldnít be in trouble if I was lying Ė that I could take it all back. I couldnít. It was all true. But sexual abuse claims against the powerful stall more easily. There were experts willing to attack my credibility. There were doctors willing to gaslight an abused child.'

That's just the FIRST HALF of the letter. Go to the site and READ THE REST OF IT.
Who WOULDN'T believer this???????
How and why would a 7-year-old child MAKE UP SUCH DETAILS???

"We may never know what happened"...... Yeah, and I'm not sure if George Washington was ever President of the United States, because, hey, I WASN'T THERE AT THE TIME..... and we don't have a VIDEO of it.....

"My father" and "my mother". Instead of "Woody Allen" and "Mia Farrow".

Really CHANGES YOUR PERCEPTIONS, doesn't it??????
Very interesting, that.

Noted. Thanks, Carrie. I believe her too. I used to occasionally watch this show several years ago when I was awake at that hour. I quit watching when I realized Mika was a doormat, and could not stand the way she was treated by Scarborough. She wouldn't even stand up for herself....that's the main reason I quit watching. So, this is indeed a surprise....a nice surprise, and I hope she keeps it up!

I believe her, and I remember 20 some years the scandal of Woody Allen. I never liked the guy, to me there was always something creepy about him. I think I only ever watched part of one of his movies. I feel so bad for this young woman, and it shows how abused children have such trouble getting anyone to believe them, when it is a father doing the abusing.
Noted with thanks Carrie, for the article and video.

his culture is a culture steep in pedophilia. google it. even rabbi's are into it. they are Semitics. and both semitic holy scriptures the quran and the talmud extol it. and with his track record forget it. of course he did it.

This man had a romantic relationship with another adoptive daughter, Soon-Yi, and eventually married her. It was around that time that Mia Farrow learned of his sexual molestation of then 7-year old Dylan and filed sexual abuse charges against him. It's hard for me to believe the charges were fabricated. As talented as he may be, Woody Allen has a creepy quality about him, like Roman Polanski. A woman as smart, beautiful, and accomplished as Mia Farrow, who is also know for her humanitarianism, activism and advocacy on behalf of children, is not likely to have filed such charges out of revenge.

I believe her.

I have never liked Woody Allen or his movies apart from Mighty Aphrodite and the only reason I liked that was because Mira Sorvino made that movie good.
I believe Dylan. I have no respect for these men who are so afraid of losing their meal ticket they won't come out and say the support her let alone believe her. I have enjoyed some of Polanski's movies but that doesn't mean I like him either. That man should have been prosecuted. The problem with Hollywood West and Europe is that they are so morally and ethically bereft that they see no problem with covering up for one of their own instead of righting the wrong done and preventing further abuse.
Perhaps the New Rome is about to fall and the barbarians are at the gates. So eat, drink for tomorrow you may perish and find out that reality is much different than you thought it was and yes Mildred there are repercussions for everything you do.
