NBC Reportedly Threatened To 'Smear' Ronan Farrow If He Pressed Harvey Weinstein Exposé

Producer Rich McHugh says the order to stop the sexual assault story came from the "very highest levels of NBC."


Why am I not surprised over this?

If you don't believe that the Mainstream Media is helping covering up these abuses you're either ignorant or too naive.


New details have emerged about NBC News’ reported efforts to stop Ronan Farrow from producing his bombshell exposé on decades of sexual assault allegations against Hollywood film producer Harvey Weinstein.

According to a report Thursday by The Daily Beast, NBC’s efforts to prevent Farrow’s story on Weinstein from airing involved threats from the network’s general counsel.

“According to multiple sources familiar with the matter, NBC News general counsel Susan Weiner made a series of phone calls to Farrow, threatening to smear him if he continued to report on Weinstein,” The Daily Beast reported.

NBC News vehemently denied the allegations in a comment to The Daily Beast.


I know the typical people will cry about the Daily Beast but you should look closer when names are named. NBC has a record on trying to stop this reports, and that's why former network producer Rich McHugh quit weeks ago.


The New York Times also reported Thursday on Farrow’s experience reporting on Weinstein while at NBC News, quoting the journalist’s former network producer, Rich McHugh, who the Beast said “quit in protest” two weeks ago over the Weinstein story.

He said the order to put a stop to Farrow’s reporting came from “the very highest levels of NBC” and that the network was “resistant” to the story throughout the eight-month reporting process.

“I think it’s fair to say that there was a point in our reporting where I felt there were obstacles to us reporting this externally, and there were obstacles to us reporting this internally,” he told the Times. He accused the network of “a massive breach of journalistic integrity” and said he doesn’t believe NBC has ever told the truth about what really happened.


Well, if this story is true, which is highly likely to be, I guess we can all agree now that NBC/MSNBC/CNBC all follow their agenda which we now know includes defending sexual predators. These are the same networks that denied vehemently the #PizzaGate story.

Who would've thought that?

I saw this on CBS this morning, which actually surprised me. What didn't surprise me, but made me LOL, was that the story right before this one, was about how there was no lying or corruption in the media.
I mean come on, someone had to have done that on purpose.

There are the same networks that denied vehemently ridicularized the #PizzaGate story.


It deserved to be riducularized because it was bull, Harvey Weinstein, not so much.

Yea, there's no conclusive evidences to support the theory.

But the MSM lost their credibility long ago to state something as fact or fiction.

So, who knows?

Is exactly what any producer would say to someone trying to run the pizza story on any credible media platform.

Don't worry though pal, gateway pundit will provide no shortage of allegations without facts.

So you don’t think Weinstein and Epstein run in the same circles?
I’ve always wanted pg to be fake, but in my mind there’s always been a chance.

Please convince me it’s nonsense

The ONLY free press is the independent media. Proper investigative journalists.
CNN, Fox, MSNBC, CBS, NBC. WaPo, NYT... all just controlled media spewing lies to their dwindling audiences.

Where is Weinstein now anyway?
Any normal person would already be behind bars for a very long time for these indiscretions...

Weinstein's friends with Obama and HRC, he's no normal person.

He's got dirty on everyone. That's why he is being protected, if he starts spilling the beans...

You're thinking of osmosis.

Reverse osmosis can even remove bacteria.

On topic: Harvey Weinstein is a grosser version of Michael Moore.
