Why Ronan Farrow's Harvey Weinstein Bombshell Did Not Run on NBC

However, one of those unnamed sources reportedly said the story brought to NBC was "nowhere close to what ultimately ran in the NY Times or the New Yorker". "I will say that over many years, many news organizations circled this story and faced a great deal of pressure in doing so". During Tuesday's MSNBC interview Farrow revealed that he too was "threatened with a lawsuit personally by Mr. Weinstein". He was sacked from the production company he helped create over the weekend and has admitted he needs to seek counseling, even as he has threatened to sue the New York Times and media companies allege huge pressure from him and his lawyers to kill the stories.

What's clear is that Farrow and NBC have distinctly different takes on why the network choose to pass on his Weinstein story.

Here's that 30 Rock clip where Jane Krakowski jokes that she turned down sex with Harvey Weinstein 3 out of 5 times. Though Farrow works for NBC, his expose was published in the New Yorker, prompting questions from many.

Two sources told THR that Weinstein's legal team attempted to block Farrow from taking material that he gathered at NBC News to The New Yorker. "In fact, there were multiple determinations at NBC that it was reportable".

"I walked into the door at The New Yorker with an explosively reportable piece that should have been public earlier and immediately, obviously The New Yorker recognized that", said Farrow.

But when asked by Maddow about whether his story was ready to publish when he approached The New Yorker, Farrow confirmed that it was and claimed NBC should have previously reported on it. NBC News agreed with the understanding that if Farrow got the story published he would come back and talk about it on the air.

When asked why the story did not run on NBC, Farrow responded she would have to ask NBC execs. And while several of them would do so only anonymously - they consented to on-camera interviews with their identities disguised - there were two victims willing to go on the record with stories of harassment at the hands of the powerful Hollywood mogul. "Access Hollywood" is owned by NBC, and Bush had recently joined NBC News as a "Today Show" co-host. Multiple sources say that Farrow had convinced several victims, a lot of them former employees, to tell their stories. "[Today] we couldn't be prouder of him".
