Ghomeshi’s Back
And this time, he has unnamed investors and the support of a prominent member of the Iranian-Canadian community

Jian Ghomeshi’s first attempt to return to the public eye was widely mocked. “The Ideation Project,” as he branded his 2017 series of mostly self-produced monologues, sputtered out after two months and a dozen six-minute episodes. The website now results in an error page.

His next effort, the following year, involved an error-riddled personal essay in The New York Review of Books, part of a cover package on “The Fall of Men.” He downplayed the accusations of sexual assault and misconduct made by over 20 people, while assuring readers that women still reach out to him for sex. The piece sent the magazine into turmoil and resulted in its editor-in-chief getting fired.
