[See NewsBusters for more.] PBS host Christiane Amanpour appeared puzzled as to why NBC spiked Ronan Farrow’s investigation into powerful Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein. Discussing the disgraced Democratic donor on Monday, Amanpour asked the journalist: “Why do you think the media entities [spiked the story]? Our DNA is to be investigative. What was it about the media that wanted you not to tell these stories?” Speaking of NBC, Amanpour noted: “The network that you were working for spiked it.” She allowed: “The press had a role itself in suppressing some of these stories for a long, long time.” Farrow explained: “The questions about the role of the media over the years of silence around the Harvey Weinstein story are absolutely correct.”
