NBC reportedly threatened Ronan Farrow over Weinstein bombshells

NBC suits threatened to smear Ronan Farrow if he kept pursuing the Harvey Weinstein story, according to a published report on Thursday.

Farrow had been chasing the Weinstein allegations for the peacock network but ultimately penned the bombshell expose for The New Yorker after NBC deemed the story wasn’t ready to run.

The Daily Beast, citing anonymous sources, reported that NBC didn’t want Farrow to pursue the matter and had network general counsel Susan Weiner make a series of threatening phone calls to the son of actress Mia Farrow.

“Absolutely false,” an NBC rep told the Daily Beast. “There’s no truth to that all. There is no chance, in no version of the world, that Susan Weiner would tell Ronan Farrow what he could or could not report on.”

The news website did not provide details for what exactly the alleged threats were.
