Why Ronan Farrow's Harvey Weinstein Bombshell Did Not Run on NBC


The inference is that NBC News - which let The Washington Post scoop its own Donald Trump Access Hollywood video a year ago - knew about Weinstein and didn't have the courage to take him on.

Asked why he filed the story with The New Yorker instead of NBC on Tuesday's The Rachel Maddow Show, Farrow sidestepped the question.

"We launched him on that story, we encouraged him to report that story".

"You would have to ask NBC and NBC executives about the details of that story", he said.

Green's push is not supported by many senior Democrats, even as they rail against the president. Green's resolution covers four articles of impeachment.

On Tuesday night, echoing the company line on her MSNBC program, Maddow, said to Farrow: "NBC says that the story wasn't publishable, that it wasn't ready to go at the time that you brought it to them". For NBC, the swirling media controversy was immediately reminiscent of another missed opportunity for its news division - the internal leak of its infamous Access Hollywood Donald Trump tape to the Washington Post nearly exactly one year ago. Where the two sides appear to disagree is on how many women would be willing to speak on the record, without appearing on camera in silhouette. "We reached a point over the summer, where as an organization, we didn't feel that we had all the elements that we needed to air it", Oppenheim said, according to a statement provided by NBC News. He greatly expanded the scope of his reporting.

And while an NBC network source told HuffPost that what Farrow had at NBC was "nowhere close to what ultimately ran in the NY Times or the New Yorker", Farrow disagreed.

Early in his investigation, Farrow told multiple people he was working on the story for NBC.

"I walked into the door at The New Yorker with an explosively reportable piece that should have been public earlier and immediately, obviously The New Yorker recognized that", said Farrow.

Multiple sources told THR that Farrow's reporting was reviewed by NBC News' legal department and that Kim Harris, who as lead counsel for NBCUniversal reports to CEO Steve Burke, was also reviewing the material. Multiple sources say that Farrow had convinced several victims, majority former employees, to tell their stories. NBC's story was posted online seven minutes later.

In conclusion, Oppenheim told staff, "we should all be proud of being an organization that is at least in the hunt on these things". But, Oppenheim said like he meant it to sting, "the notion that we would try to cover for a powerful person is deeply offensive to all of us".

Farrow previously hosted a show on MSNBC that ended in 2015.
