NBC Covered Up ‘Credible’ Weinstein Allegation

Rich McHugh, a producer who worked closely with Ronan Farrow on the Harvey Weinstein story, is now a whistleblower telling the New York Times that he was ordered to “stand down” on an investigation of a ‘credible’ rape allegation against Weinstein. “Three days before Ronan [Farrow] and I were going to head to L.A. to interview a woman with a credible rape allegation against Harvey Weinstein, I was ordered to stop, not to interview this woman. And to stand down on the story altogether.” Farrow himself was forced to take his would-be Pultizer Prize winning investigation on this to the New Yorker because NBC refused to run the story. Naturally NBC denies this, just like they denied knowing anything about Matt Lauer’s exploits.

NBC News covered up a credible rape allegation against Harvey Weinstein, according to sources who spoke to the New York Times and Daily Beast.
“Three days before Ronan [Farrow] and I were going to head to L.A. to interview a woman with a credible rape allegation against Harvey Weinstein, I was ordered to stop, not to interview this woman,” an NBC News whistleblower told the far-left New York Times. “And to stand down on the story altogether.”

“Farrow was prepared to fly to California to interview a woman who was going to claim in silhouette on camera that Weinstein had raped her,” reports the far-left Daily Beast. “Farrow wanted to publish this interview and what he had already gathered, but network higher-ups said he needed more and would not allow Farrow to use an NBC News crew for the interview[.]”

The NBC News whistleblower is Rich McHugh, a 43-year-old producer who worked closely with Farrow on the Weinstein story. He left his job at NBC’s investigative unit some two weeks ago for an opportunity to work for Al Gore on a climate change documentary.
