Description

Rich McHugh was a veteran TV news producer when he teamed up with Ronan Farrow, then a correspondent at NBC News, as he began reporting on Harvey Weinstein. McHugh didn’t expect that the assignment would lead to him witnessing what he believes to be a historic example of a major news outlet killing a story—when executives ordered him and Farrow to stand down. Now, McHugh tells a new part of his story, about what happened when Farrow took the investigation to the New Yorker and McHugh stayed behind to watch from the inside as NBC dealt with the fallout.

People who are willing to stand behind their convictions and stand up to powerful entities are AWESOME. I am grateful to Rich and Ronan for their dedication to the truth and their willingness to put everything on the line to provide it. This podcast is wonderful in that it gives voice to the bravery of those who took down a terrible man.
