NBC News cant seem to shake Ronan Farrow and the scandal he uncovered
Key Excerpts from Article on Website of Washington Post

Washington Post, October 27, 2019
Posted: November 4th, 2019

NBC News just cant seem to escape the talk of scandal. For weeks, the network has been rebutting allegations by a former correspondent, Ronan Farrow, that it suppressed his reporting on sexual assault allegations against movie producer Harvey Weinstein and covered up harassment and assault accusations against its former star, Matt Lauer. The story has been propelled by Farrows best-selling book, Catch and Kill, which asserts ... that NBC stopped Farrows reporting on Weinstein in mid-2017 after Weinstein threatened to reveal Lauers misconduct. Farrow published a blockbuster story about Weinstein in the New Yorker seven weeks later. In an extraordinary segment on her MSNBC show, Rachel Maddow urged NBC News to undertake an independent investigation of the networks conduct. The allegations about the behavior of Harvey Weinstein and Matt Lauer are gut-wrenching, said Maddow, MSNBCs biggest star and the second, after MSNBC host Chris Hayes, to call out her bosses on an NBC-owned platform. Brooke Nevils [is] a Today show producer who in Farrows book accuses Lauer of raping her. Network officials deny any pattern of harassment complaints or hush-money settlements, and say Lauer was fired just hours after Nevils came forward with her accusation in late 2017. But NBC has resisted calls for the kind of independent investigation that other news organizations have undertaken in the wake of harassment scandals.
