Ronan Farrow didn’t break the first story of shocking allegations about movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, but his New Yorker piece published Tuesday has added a new sordid dimension to the scandal. Farrow discussed his story Tuesday evening on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show,” and there’s good reason: He started the story under NBC’s auspices.

Asked why the story ran in the New Yorker rather than on NBC, Farrow told Maddow, “You would have to ask NBC and NBC executives about the details.”

“I will say that over many years, many news organizations have circled this story and faced a great deal of pressure in doing so,” he continued. “There are now reports emerging about the kind of pressure news organizations have faced. That is real. And in the course of this reporting, I was threatened with a lawsuit personally by Mr. Weinstein.”

He also challenged NBC’s statement that the version of the story they saw wasn’t publishable. “I walked into the door at the New Yorker with an explosively reportable piece that should have been public,” he said. “Immediately the New Yorker recognized that and it was not accurate to say that it was not reportable. In fact, there were multiple determinations at NBC that it was reportable.”

  1. Looking forward to seeing not only what kind of spin CKNW does on this story, but how much they will cover, or should I say UnCover!

  2. We see the hypocrisy of the liberal-left and elite liberals in Hollywood and in MSM. Donald Trump was roasted for saying, “As a celebrity, they [women] let you grab them by the pussy.” There is no evidence that Trump ever sexually assaulted any women, in fact much evidence supports him giving women who worked with him a fair shot at advancement in his companies.

    Harvey Weinstein was known to be a sexual assaulter. abuser and harasser of females FOR DECADES and the liberal-left, Hollywood elites, MSM all GAVE HIM A BYE and still fail to show us the man and awful man he appears to be. TRUMP though F**K him by these same hypocritical elitist pukes.

  3. Good on Rachel Maddow for asking Ronan if the material he took to the New Yorker was the same stuff that NBC News allegedly nixed. Ronan answered that it was an identical document dump. So, essentially, Maddow set him up to present information that would lead most reasonable viewers to conclude that MSNBC’s sister organization spiked a story exposing the dark side of liberal-darling Weinstein.

    Ms Maddow usually has few fans on PSR comments. But I do think she showed guts in letting Ronan (himself briefly an MSNBC host) free rein.

    To switch from serious to trivial: Has Mr Farrow changed his hairstyle? Or is it simple aging? For some reason, he no longer looks the spitting image of his rumoured biological dad. ..the late Frank Sinatra.
