After the Harvey Weinstein story went nuclear today when Ronan Farrow published a damning expose in The New Yorker, the floodgates seemed to open for people in Hollywood to finally condemn him. In The New Yorker story, several women spoke on the record about their encounters with Weinstein.

Sources inside and outside of NBC told the Huffington Post that by August, Farrow had an audio recording of Weinstein admitting to groping a woman but the network had concerns with the story's sourcing and cleared Farrow to take it to The New Yorker.

Farrow noted that many news organizations had considered running stories on Weinstein's alleged sexual harassment and assault over the years, but were threatened with lawsuits and other forms of pressure.

News has maintained that the final result of Farrow's reporting, which included three women on the record describing alleged sexual assaults by Weinstein, is "radically different" than the early version he brought to the network. His contributor contract with NBC News expired over the summer and he was in the midst of negotiating a new deal with the network.

The 347 number includes domestic violence, barroom brawls, convenience store robberies, or gang feuds. Could Stephen Paddock have been targeting people for political purposes, like James T.

"You would have to ask NBC and NBC executives about the details of that story", Farrow replied.

But after sitting for the interview, her lawyer contacted Farrow and NBC to revoke consent because it could put her in legal jeopardy given the terms of her settlement agreement, sources with knowledge of the situation tell THR.

News is being questioned for reportedly killing an exposé Ronan Farrow had on Harvey Weinstein's long history of alleged sexual misconduct.

But Farrow appeared to contradict that account when asked about it on MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show" on Tuesday.

She sought to clarify that the accusation, which Trump has consistently denied, was not intended in a "literal or criminal sense". Never [achieved] anything in her life", seethed Ivana to CBS News correspondent Jim Axelrod .

Asked why he filed the story with The New Yorker instead of NBC on Tuesday's The Rachel Maddow Show, Farrow sidestepped the question.

"I walked into the door at The New Yorker with an explosively reportable piece that should have been public earlier and immediately, obviously The New Yorker recognized that", Farrow said. He was sacked from the production company he helped create over the weekend and has admitted he needs to seek counseling, even as he has threatened to sue the New York Times and media companies allege huge pressure from him and his lawyers to kill the stories.

"There were multiple determinations that it was reportable at NBC", Farrow said. Multiple sources say that Farrow had convinced several victims, majority former employees, to tell their stories. NBC's story was posted online seven minutes later.
