Hollywood news banter

It was known that Ronan Farrow had been working on his Harvey Weinstein expose for NBC before ultimately taking it to the New Yorker. Now, two new stories, one from the Daily Beast  and one at The New York Times shed light on what was going on behind the scenes. There are allegations that NBC’s legal counsel threatened Farrow if he took the story elsewhere and that NBC News president Noah Oppenheim was possibly leaking details of Farrow’s reporting to Weinstein himself. Farrow’s producer at NBC has also gone on the record, saying that the story was killed by someone at the highest levels of NBC.
