That article followed a New York Times story published Friday that said Weinstein had been using his position to sexually harass vulnerable women for three decades.

Farrow's piece was originally targeted to air on NBC in February, just as Hollywood was gearing up for the Oscars, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter. Speaking to a videographer for The Daily Mail who noted that the show had made no mention of Mr. Weinstein, Mr. Michaels said, "It's a NY thing". We didn't want to stand in his way and he took it to The New Yorker and did a ton more extraordinary work.

The Daily Beast noted that, internally at NBC, there is a dispute over how many sources Farrow had on the record when he walked out of the door, a sentiment echoed by sources speaking to BuzzFeed News.

Weinstein has a phalanx of high-priced lawyers.

He added: "I will say that over many years, many news organizations have circled this story and faced a great deal of pressure in doing so. That is real. And in the course of this reporting, I was threatened with a lawsuit personally by Mr. Weinstein".

Two sources told THR that Weinstein's legal team attempted to block Farrow from taking material that he gathered at NBC News to The New Yorker. Yet Huffington Post learned Farrow's investigation was in the network's hands as early as August, and at that time already included the damning audio of Weinstein admitting he had groped model Ambra Battilana Gutierrez.

On her MSNBC show Tuesday night, Rachel Maddow asked Farrow point-blank, "Why did you end up publishing this story for The New Yorker and not for NBC News?" "Immediately, obviously, the New Yorker recognized that, and it is not accurate to say that it was not reportable. In fact, there were multiple determinations at NBC that it was reportable". "We supported him and gave him resources to report that story over many, many months", said Oppenheim during the town hall.

As you may or may not remember, Ronan Farrow used to be an MSNBC anchor.

"Ronan, who was not working for us exclusively, began reporting on that story for NBC". NBC's story was posted online seven minutes later. As we previously reported, Ronan already opened up about his investigation to NBC's Nightly News and PBS NewsHour. And that it was "nowhere close to what ultimately ran in the New York Times of The New Yorker - for example, at the time he didn't have one accuser willing to go on the record of identify themselves".
