Farrow details lack of enthusiasm at NBC for Weinstein story
NEW YORK (AP) — In journalist Ronan Farrow’s account of his contentious divorce from NBC News, the more evidence he gathered on Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual misconduct, the less enthusiastic his bosses seemed to be.
Farrow eventually took the story to the New Yorker which, together with The New York Times, shared a Pulitzer Prize for breaking the scandal that gave birth to the #MeToo movement.
A book published Tuesday gives Farrow’s account, and it is drawing strong pushback from NBC, which says Farrow was anxious to put a story on the air but it wasn’t ready to go.
NBC says Farrow’s “Catch and Kill” is a smear by someone with an axe to grind.
