NBC News tried to bury Weinstein story

NBC General Counsel (((Susan Weiner))) threatened Ronan Farrow if he didn’t drop the (((Harvey Weinstein))) story even AFTER he left NBC.

The producer who worked alongside Ronan Farrow at NBC News on his Harvey Weinstein investigation quit in protest earlier this month.

Rich McHugh tendered his resignation on Friday, Aug. 17, a year to the day after the Weinstein story left with Farrow. Since then, Farrow has won a Pulitzer Prize for a series of articles that revealed allegations of sexual harassment and assault—and questions have lingered about why the network gave up on the story that helped launch the #MeToo movement.

NBC News has long insisted the Weinstein exposé wasn’t ready to run on air or online, contrary to Farrow’s claims that it was. Farrow’s story, which ultimately ran in The New Yorker, was part of a series that won the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service, earned him the prestigious George Polk Award for National Reporting, and garnered near-universal praise from his colleagues.

The Daily Beast has uncovered new details of how the process went awry, including alleged threats from NBC, back-biting inside the network about who was truly responsible, and a previously unreported ultimatum by Weinstein’s attorneys.

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.

This cannot possibly be true! We have been repeatedly assured that Harvey Weinstein’s success stems solely stems from his high average 115 IQ! Any suggestion that he is a neurotic pervert who has sexually assaulted women for decades is nothing more than the combination of envy, insecurity, conspiracy theory, and anti-semitism.

And Susan Weiner obviously attempted to defend a man who didn’t even work for her company out of nothing more than her laudable desire to heal the world by defending a true auteur against the scurrilous accusations of an envious, insecure, anti-semitic conspiracy theorist Nazi with blond hair.

The ABCNNBCBS cabal can’t honestly be described as “news”, it’s a fake news propaganda machine designed to cover up the actual news. They are, without question, the enemy of the people.
