Ronan Farrow Strikes Again: A New Book Targets NBC News and How Harvey Weinstein May Have Leveraged Matt Lauer
In his first interview about the explosive 'Catch and Kill,' the journalist reveals fresh claims of secret payouts and how Lauer may have played a role in the network’s decision to kill his 2017 Harvey Weinstein exposé: "I'm very clear about the fact that Harvey was laying siege to NBC."
Something to remember is that when Farrow broke the Weinstein story, he was working for NBC. So a lot of us were asking at the time why was the story in The New Yorker and not on NBC. We all knew that Weinstein was involved in a lot of efforts to kill the story and this new book talks about them.
Here's the fascinating part. Apparently Weinstein knew what Matt Lauer was up to and was using that information as leverage.
Farrow lost a lot of credibility with that hit piece he worked on with Jane Mayer but this is still worth looking into.
