Awkward: Lauer Insists to Farrow He Worked on Weinstein Bombshell as an NBC Venture


See more in the cross-post on the NewsBusters blog.

Amidst the NBC News controversy of declining to support contributor Ronan Farrow’s bombshell story on Harvey Weinstein, NBC’s Today co-host Matt Lauer praised Farrow on Wednesday for working on it at NBC but failing to disclose the network’s refusal to publish it (hence why it went to The New Yorker). 

Lauer welcomed Farrow on as “a contributor for The New Yorker and an NBC News contributing correspondent” then praised him as having “been working this story for a long time, both for NBC News and The New Yorker.”
