NBC President Says Ronan Farrow’s New Book ‘Motivated Not By Pursuit Of Truth, But An Axe To Grind’

Published

NBC News President Noah Oppenheim is not exactly what you’d call a fan of Ronan Farrow’s new book, “Catch and Kill,” calling it an “effort to defame” the network, one which is “clearly motivated not by a pursuit of truth, but an axe to grind.”

Those comments were part of an email that was sent out by Oppenheim to all of the employees of the NBC News network on Monday morning.

The lengthy memo obtained by Fox News rejects Farrow’s reporting that suggests NBC wasn’t truthful regarding knowledge of alleged sexual misconduct by former “Today” co-host Matt Lauer, and that the network refused to expose Harvey Weinstein as a sexual predator because he leveraged information regarding Lauer.

“Now that we’ve read Farrow’s book, it’s clear – his smear rests on the allegation that NBC’s management knew about and took steps to hide Matt Lauer’s misconduct before his firing in November of 2017. Without that, he has no basis on which to rest his second conspiracy theory — that his Harvey Weinstein reporting was squashed to protect Lauer,” Oppenheim wrote to staffers.

Oppenheim and NBC News chairman Andy Lack have been accused of a “massive breach of journalistic integrity” by Farrow’s former NBC News producer Rich McHugh. Farrow has long claimed that NBC News stopped his reporting in an attempt to essentially cover for Weinstein. The situation has been a public relations nightmare for NBC and Oppenheim’s memo to staffers is the latest attempt to discredit “Catch and Kill” before its Tuesday release. The highly anticipated book details Farrow’s side of the story and the Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter has already caused NBC executives to release statements and hold staffer sit-downs prior to its official release on Tuesday.

Oppenheim went on to write in his email saying, “Farrow alleges there were employees who reported Lauer’s behavior prior to November of 2017 and were paid settlements to silence them. Not only is this false, the so-called evidence Farrow uses in his book to support the charge collapses under the slightest scrutiny.”

Fox News reached out to a spokesperson for Farrow, but there was no immediate response to such inquiries.

However, Farrow himself responded to the hoopla on “CBS This Morning,” on Monday when he was informed of Oppenheim’s email.

“This book is an extraordinary, meticulously fact-checked work of investigative journalism. It’s two years of reporting, one of the senior fact-checkers at The New Yorker checked it, I’ll let the reporting in the book stand on its own. We’re very confident in it,” he said.

Flashback: ‘Star Wars’ Actress Suggests Supporters of President Trump Are Not ‘Sane’

Maddening!

If you vowed to never see a movie again because the star or the director’s political views don’t align with yours, there’s a good chance you’ll never see a movie again. There are probably quite a few “Star Wars” fans out there who will vote for President Trump in 2020. Most probably don’t love that Han Solo himself, Harrison Ford, is an anti-Trump political know-nothing. But those people will push through anyway because they love the saga. Well, if that’s the case and you are one of those people, you’re going to have to do the same thing with Rey, portrayed by Daisy Ridley. She thinks if you support Trump you are literally insane. From Daily Wire: In an interview with The Guardian, the “Rise of Skywalker” actress argued that her privileged background, in which she attended a boarding school, did not make her access to fame any easier. […] In the same interview, Ridley said that she does not like talking about her political opinions, though she did knock British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, while adding that “sane” people have issues with President Trump. Ridley noted (BOLD MINE), “No. I don’t feel I have to edit what I say – the things that make me angry are the things that make everyone angry. Everyone is annoyed with BoJo. Everyone has an issue with Trump – every sane person anyway. It’s not that I don’t talk about this stuff, but other people are so much more articulate than me and say it better.” Democrats hate President Trump with such passion that he could single-handedly cure cancer and they’d still find a way to tear him apart, just for sport. And that’s the problem. Lefties don’t care. WATCH: This is @CNN, “the most trusted name in news.” Media “journalist” @brianstelter ended…

How so, Don?

CNN’s Don Lemon is easily one of the biggest liars on television. In the era of Trump, that’s saying something. On Monday, Lemon claimed POTUS was “declaring war on Americans.” Because that makes sense, huh? How ridiculous. From NewsBusters: CNN Tonight host Don Lemon continued to foment division and hatred Monday night for people who disagreed with him and CNN, declaring after President Trump’s address to the nation that America’s “teetering on a dictatorship” and “declaring war on Americans.” As if to signal that he’s set on more violence, Lemon warned that Trump’s “playing a very, very dangerous game” as Americans “feel like they are occupied in their own communities by police departments.” CONTINUED: Lemon built up by complaining that the speech he’d spent days demanding Trump give was no more than “a made for television moment,” including Attorney General Bill Barr “survey[ing] the troops” before the speech “to create this moment for the cameras.” After mocking his phone call with governors earlier in the day and Trump as “sacred,” Lemon let loose by demanding the country to “open your eyes” because “we are teetering on a dictatorship” and “chaos.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/KennethLFisher/status/1136734827217084417?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1136734827217084417&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsarahd-313035%2F2019%2F06%2F06%2Fand-im-the-queen-of-england-don-lemons-latest-claim-may-be-some-of-the-fakest-cnn-news-yet%2F Check out the hilarious reactions: https://twitter.com/R_E72319143/status/1136735369502871558?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1136735369502871558&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsarahd-313035%2F2019%2F06%2F06%2Fand-im-the-queen-of-england-don-lemons-latest-claim-may-be-some-of-the-fakest-cnn-news-yet%2F https://twitter.com/lawfin06/status/1136744315278041091?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1136744315278041091&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsarahd-313035%2F2019%2F06%2F06%2Fand-im-the-queen-of-england-don-lemons-latest-claim-may-be-some-of-the-fakest-cnn-news-yet%2F https://twitter.com/qmprt/status/1136742247821586432?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1136742247821586432&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsarahd-313035%2F2019%2F06%2F06%2Fand-im-the-queen-of-england-don-lemons-latest-claim-may-be-some-of-the-fakest-cnn-news-yet%2F https://twitter.com/jjbarnhart/status/1136742822894231553?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1136742822894231553&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsarahd-313035%2F2019%2F06%2F06%2Fand-im-the-queen-of-england-don-lemons-latest-claim-may-be-some-of-the-fakest-cnn-news-yet%2F
