Ronan Farrow, who broke the Harvey Weinstein revelations, took direct aim at NBC News on Tuesday. The investigative journalist unleashed a Twitter storm that intimated the network actively attempted to shut down his story on sex abuses by Harvey Weinstein – going so far as to threaten his NBC producer with losing his job.

“My reporting is only possible because of a group of brave journalists who fought for the story,” Farrow tweeted, praising the New Yorker magazine for fearlessly publishing his investigation of Weinstein’s alleged sexual abuse.

Farrow acknowledged that “@RichMcHughNBC, my wonderful producer, refused to bow to pressure to stop, through numerous shoots, even when it meant risking his job,” during his Twitter storm.

Numerous press accounts describe Rich McHugh, NBC News investigative producer, as extremely disappointed that the network shut down his and Farrow’s investigative report on Weinstein.

Farrow’s most recent Weinstein revelation, published by Farrow in The New Yorker on Monday, exposed the Hollywood producer’s use of former Israeli intelligence officers and New York power-attorneys to investigate and shut down any journalistic endeavors to expose Weinstein’s alleged abuse of women.

Farrows praised the journalistic integrity of The New Yorker editors and staff who “championed” and “protected” him, while his bosses at NBC refused to publish his bombshell revelations, laughably claiming that it wasn’t up to the network’s standards.

He tweeted that New Yorker editor David Remnick “saved” his story as a “rare bastion of journalistic integrity,” and digital editor David Rohde “was a compassionate, thoughtful and tireless editor.”
