Ronan Farrow continues to take subtle jabs at NBC News for refusing to air his reporting in that would have outed Harvey Weinstein as a sexual predator many months before he eventually published his findings in The- New Yorker.â€œThis tale has revealed so much about the evil of men,â€� Farrow said, while accepting a 2017 Voices of Solidarity award from Vital Voices. â€œThe crimes, the abuse of power, the men who prey upon the vulnerable, the men who maintain a veil of silence around in that predation.â€�NBC news executives Andy Lack and Noah Oppenheim have not been transparent about why they spiked Farrowâ€™s bombshell expose on Harvey Weinstein and are presumably who tried to maintain the â€œveil of silence.â€� The- story, which is now racking up Pulitzer buzz, helped to spark a national debate on the treatment of women in the workplace.The embattled Lack and Oppenheim recently had to fire their biggest star, Matt Lauer, over inappropriate sexual conduct and it may not even the biggest scandal theyâ€™re caught up in. Observers have asked if NBCâ€™s unwillingness to reveal Weinsteinâ€™s behavior was linked to a â€œglass housesâ€� problem.Farrow thanked a assortment of colleagues from The- New Yorker who proved â€œcourage still existsâ€� in journalism before bringing up NBC News producer Rich McHughâ€™s role in exposing Weinstein. (2016 FOX)â€œHe is an unsung hero of this whole entire story. He stood by for interview after interview and refused to back down, even when he was told to stop,â€� Farrow said. â€œHe kept going and he wouldnâ€™t be intimidated.â€�McHugh did not respond to Fox Newsâ€™ request for comment.Last month, the HuffPost reported in that â€œNBC tried to put a stopâ€� to an interview with a lady accusing Weinstein of rape so the celebrity scion â€œwound up paying out of his own pocket for a camera crew to film an interview.â€�During his speech, Farrow asserted in that the men who â€œkept this quietâ€� are not the whole tale and everyone needs to fight against men who would â€œsilence an abuse.â€�Oppenheim moonlights as a Hollywood screenwriter and industry insiders suspect his side gig influenced his decision to spike Farrowâ€™s Weinstein report, while other insiders feel Lack is ultimately responsible for passing on one of the most noteworthy scoops of the year. Lack has remained quiet on the subject while allowing his top deputy to take the public heat.Oppenheim is represented by the Creative Arts Agency and The- New York Times recently published a lengthy feature in that details CAAâ€™s role in protecting Weinstein. Farrow was moreover with CAA until five days after his tale was published in The- New Yorker, when he signed with its primary competitor agency, WME.NBC has declined to comment on Farrowâ€™s status at NBC News, although Twitter bio still says he works as an investigative reporter for NBCâ€™s â€œTodayâ€� show. Farrowâ€™s employment contract with NBC has reportedly expired and he has appeared on rival networks.Farrow recently published a still photo from an interview he conducted with Weinstein accuser Rose McGowan in that never aired on NBC.â€œThankful for the women and men who have come forward with painful stories and helped to chip away at a culture of silence. When I sat down for this interview almost a year ago, the world was a different place,â€� Farrow wrote to caption his Instagram post.An NBC News insider told Fox News the photo is â€œthe 1st frameâ€� of any of Farrowâ€™s sit-down interviews with Weinstein accusers in that has-been seen publicly 'cause the network refused to air it.
