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.

Check out the details from Fox News:

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.

WATCH: Biden Calls Military Members ‘Stupid B—’ During Overseas Speech As Vice President

And the MSM will remain silent.

It wasn’t that long ago when the mainstream media pushed a story accusing President Trump of denigrating US military members. The reports have been widely debunked, as one would expect. However, here’s actual footage of 2020 Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden calling them “stupid bastards.” And the MSM will remain silent. From The Daily Wire: A video emerged on Friday of Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden calling soldiers “stupid bastards” and a “dull bunch” during a speech overseas to U.S. soldiers while he was serving as vice president in the Obama administration. WATCH: https://twitter.com/robbystarbuck/status/1309604720546373633?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1309604720546373633%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fbreaking-video-emerges-of-joe-biden-calling-u-s-troops-stupid-bastards-during-speech-biden-campaign-responds Team Biden has put out a statement saying Joe was just joking. They must be tired of doing that by now. When Joe was in Germany he decided to bash America because apparently doing so on U.S. soil just isn’t enough. According to Biden, the United States is “an embarrassment.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1096974881801957376?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1096974881801957376&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Filovemyfreedom.org%2Fjoe-biden-goes-to-germany-trashes-america-as-an-embarrassment%2F

Pelosi: If GOP Moves Forward With SCOTUS Nomination ‘There Has To Be A Price To Pay’

And what would that be??

Nancy Pelosi doesn’t think Joe Biden should debate President Trump. She doesn’t give a legitimate reason why, but come on – we all know why. Joe isn’t all there. From Fox News: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday doubled down on her argument that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden should not debate President Trump, claiming the Republican incumbent and his “henchmen” have no “fidelity” to facts or the truth. Asked during an interview on “Morning on CBS” whether she still believed the former vice president should skip the three scheduled debates, Pelosi said: “Oh, I do. Not that I don’t think he’ll be excellent. I just think that the president has no fidelity to fact or truth and, actually in his comments the last few days, no fidelity to the Constitution of the United States.” Here’s video of Pelosi claiming there “has to be a price to pay” if Republicans move forward with a SCOTUS nomination before the general election. VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHx56Kxmea0&feature=emb_title Rush Limbaugh makes an excellent point about this upcoming SCOTUS pick. Congressional Republicans, take note. From The Hill: Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh urged Senate Republicans to skip the confirmation hearing process for President Trump’s soon-to-be announced Supreme Court nominee and head straight to a floor vote. “I want the Judiciary Committee — that could be great if it were skipped,” Limbaugh said Monday on his daily radio program. “We don’t need to open that up for whatever length of time, so that whoever this nominee is can be Kavanaugh’d, or Borked, or Thomas’d. Because that’s what it’s going to be, especially when it’s not even required.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/mmfa/status/1308100957390151683?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1308100957390151683%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fthehill.com%2Fhomenews%2Fmedia%2F517408-rush-limbaugh-encourages-senate-to-skip-hearings-for-trumps-scotus-nominee H/T: Right Scoop
