Ronan Farrow’s bombshell investigation into Harvey Weinstein’s sexual misconduct was reportedly rejected by NBC over sourcing concerns before he took it to The New Yorker magazine.

Farrow had been working on the investigative piece for the peacock network — where he serves as a contributor, according to the Huffington Post.

Farrow and NBC even had incriminating audio in August where Weinstein admitting to groping a woman, the website said.

“An NBC source told The Post that Farrow did not have any accusers on the record while working on the story with them.”

...well-placed sources say that the Russians helped Trump...

Read the above again - since when did the media start requiring sources to be ON THE RECORD? Certainly not until now...and, of course, only when it comes to accusations against Democrats.

Pretty much explains how Pizzagate and the Lolita Express continue to be spiked.

What’s the big deal over this snake. Why is anyone surprised. No doubt he is one of many sleazy snakes out there, whether Hollyweird or WDC, swamps on both sides of the continent. I find this whole Weinstein story utterly boring. Is anyone surprised at all. The hypocrisy...we’ve seen it over and over ad nauseum. This time, it’s no different.

What did NBC and the NYT know, and when did they know it?

Farrow much later alleged that she DID have...CONTACT? with Frank Sinatra. A couple times.

Here is the real question: Why did The NY Times turn on Weinstein after decades of silence?

For the record, he looks a lot like Mia’s dad, the film director John Farrow.

Wine Stain has friends in high places. You wouldn’t mind ClownTune et al being dragged into this would you.
