Raining, pouring

Why does it seem that when a certain type of crisis happens in one industry leader, similar crises pop up in other members of the same industry?  Does “culture” affect an entire industry?  What about a culture of “not reporting”?

“Amazon Executive Quits Amid Sex Claim,” The Wall Street Journal, October 18, 2017 A10. The head of Amazon Studios (who had close business relationships with Harvey Weinstein) “resigns” after a producer claimed he had sexually harassed her two years ago.

What does it say that there were so many unreported instances of sexual harassment in this industry (many coming out in recent weeks in various media outlets)?  Did people not complain or did people not respond?  Or was the press/media not interested, for any one of a whole host of reasons?
