Ronan Farrow has a new book out Oct. 15th on Hollywood

Catch and Kill by Ronan Farrow

“This is the untold story of the exotic tactics of surveillance and intimidation deployed by wealthy and connected men to threaten journalists, evade accountability, and silence victims of abuse. And it’s the story of the women who risked everything to expose the truth and spark a global movement.

Both a spy thriller and a meticulous work of investigative journalism, Catch and Kill breaks devastating new stories about the rampant abuse of power and sheds far-reaching light on investigations that shook our culture.”

NBC News preps for Ronan Farrow’s bombshell book

“NBC News finds itself in the unfortunate position of preparing to cover a splashy book that is expected to be packed with jaw-dropping allegations — about NBC News.

With Ronan Farrow’s long-awaited book “Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies, and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators” due on shelves Oct. 15 — and expected to delve into ousted anchor Matt Lauer’s relationships with younger staffers, as well as the network’s alleged decision not to complete Farrow’s investigation into Harvey Weinstein — insiders say execs have been huddling to figure out how to deal with the fallout.” (more)

    Weinstein is connected to Epstein so we will see if there’s any mention of it in the book. – FC

    Notice Matt Lauer never fought his quick firing by NBC. If he was so innocent he could have sued and won a great case against NBC bosses.

    Variety – Ronan Farrow, NBC News Spar Over Explosive Accusations in ‘Catch and Kill’
    https://variety.com/2019/tv/news/ronan-farrow-catch-and-kill-nbc-news-harvey-weinstein-1203364992/

    “Farrow asserts there was a general reluctance to take on the explosive subject in part because of ties to Weinstein at NBC News and at NBCUniversal. NBC News maintains that Farrow had no Weinstein accusers on the record at the time in August 2017 when they parted ways on the story. Farrow asserts that NBC News first suggested that he try to find another editorial home for his story. NBC News maintains Farrow asked for the right to go to another publication.

    Farrow makes a case that NBC News and its practices around harassment complaints and settlements were part of a broader culture of cover-up and protection for wealthy and powerful predators. NBC News president Noah Oppenheim is depicted in particularly unflattering light as Farrow pursued his investigation in the summer and fall of 2017.”

    the book isn’t even out yet …

    https://pagesix.com/2019/10/09/ronan-farrow-book-has-nbc-news-leadership-quivering-in-their-suits/

    “….“There were a number of relationships at the top of NBC News that were cozy with Weinstein, and nobody has been fired because this goes all the way to the top. But this has to stop, somebody has to go because Comcast has a duty to its shareholders.”

    Other sources pointed out that broadcast rivals CBS and ABC both reported that the book claims senior staff at NBC had been told about Lauer’s alleged behavior at Sochi, but that NBC left that part out of its coverage. “They totally whitewashed how they handled it this morning,” an NBC insider told us.”
