Did NBC block Ronan Farrow's Weinstein story because it didn't want to upset the movie mogul?

Hosted by

Reports out this week say NBC News tried to stop Ronan Farrow from publishing his bombshell report on Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein. Farrow ended up quitting NBC. He published his story in the New Yorker, and won a Pulitzer Prize for it. His work, along with the New York Times, led to the MeToo movement. A former NBC News producer said NBC effectively killed the story, and it was “a massive breach of journalistic integrity.”
