It turns out that NBC News was presented the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment story and refused to publish it:

Ronan Farrow is clearly not there to point fingers and takes the high road quickly when asked why he didn’t report the story for NBC News. He simply says in a very nice way ‘you’ll have to ask them.’
However when Maddow pushed back on behalf of the NBC News execs, saying the story wasn’t ready for publication, Farrow says that is not true at all and pointed to the fact that the New Yorker published it.
It’s pretty clear from this exchange that NBC News didn’t want to have anything to do with bringing down Harvey Weinstein, which is both disgusting and more evidence of their biases. You know if this were one of the Koch brothers, they’d have jumped on this story like it was the last bit of gold in the world.
