There should be a ton of relevant material -- emails ands so on --
inside NBC concerning this decision to pass on the story.  If there
were good reasons to pass on the story, let's see them.

It would be nice to see the paperwork trail for these events.  In this 
case, I can certainly believe (in the absence of any paper trail) that 
Ronan Farrow probably did additional work over the time between his 
presentation to NBC and his story being published in The New Yorker.

Some of what Ronan did present to NBC, like the tape recorded police 
sting where Weinstein admitted groping a woman are not quite the 
'smoking gun' events that the press is now claiming they are.

Meanwhile, I read that Ronan is getting lots of job offers now.  I think 
the TV news outlets should be wary of hiring him unless they are looking 
for a dedicated show about sexual predators.

Side note:  I see that Roy Price has now resigned.  I'd love to know the 
real reasons behind that as well, because it certainly shouldn't be the 
result of either of the two reasons we have been given.

You mean like how Trump's former NSA Advisor, Gen. Michael Flynn was 
sitting at, next to Vladimir Putin?

This close?
