Interview With Pulitzer Prize Winning Author, Ronan Farrow

"I go backwards and forwards on the first question of wearing and when will you happiest. Because we're so encouraged to be happy all the time rather than the place that we're headed. I don't think that's a well not to be terribly pedantic right out of the gate but you know what is happiness is what you come very quickly and answering this question rided any way and i also found it. Surprisingly hard to answer by any metric that there are a lot of professional moments of fulfillment that came to mind as the answers. Getting a tape of harvey weinstein trying to entrap a woman. After months and months of trying. To get that those are obviously moments of fulfillment of kind. But then i think was a happy then because those high points were also marked by a lot of stress and can also be frankly kind of scary. I mean i think both on a level that any writer would relate to where. You're in the zone crafting a scene but also you're on a terrifying deadline and stressful. And you're afraid you're going to fail. And there's a lot riding on anything particularly when it's investigative reporting and in ways that are unique to my kind of work which is very combative in some ways and you know there are sometimes private. Investigators hired to follow me around and smear me in various ways so those moments of the film and are often entwined with ryan easy. And i don't know of happiness quite captures what those moments our exclusive. No i agree. It is part of the satisfaction of doing an incredibly hard job. That is dangerous and frightening at times but also incredibly necessary and then that paying off. I think there are ways in which that's a healthy happiness. If you were doing something whatever your profession is that you feel is contributing in positive way to other people's lives. That's a great thing to nurturing yourself. On the other hand that can take a lot of unhealthy forms. Yeah i i know and really respect a lot of great war reporters who famously do get high off of being in conflict zones and during time spent in in some of those types of places you encounter a lot of those people who are in it maybe for all the right reasons but also i think you know if they were to search themselves on a personal level. It's probably not the healthiest thing that they need to be in those high octane places all the time so is that happiness or is that kind of getting a certain kind of high again regardless of how noble the intentions

He is facing as many as twenty nine years in prison. Erica Hill is out front. Harvey Weinstein wants one of the most powerful men in Hollywood now. A convicted rapist. Weinstein with his manipulation is resources. His attorneys publicists and his spies did everything. He could to silence survivors but they refuse to be silent. They spoke from their hearts and they were heard. At least one hundred women have now publicly accused Weinstein of actions ranging from unwanted sexual advances to rape he has denied all allegations of nonconsensual sex. Six of those women testified at his New York trial over the past month on Monday. A Manhattan jury found Weinstein guilty on two counts committing a criminal sex act and third degree rape charges based on testimony from Miriam Haley and Jessica Man Hayley told the Cord Weinstein forced her into a sex act in two thousand six while man testified. He raped her in twenty thirteen during an abusive relationship. This 67-year-old was acquitted.

They don't think he could get a fair trial in part because of the intense media coverage they also believe the. Da wanted to make an example of him.

"At ten forty seven. AM We publish. I think we really weren't weren't sure how the world was going to react. The New Yorker releasing its ten month long investigation which includes an audio recording of an encounter between model Umbra Gutierrez and Weinstein spent a lot of the day. Just trying to sort of monitor the reaction and see what readers thought and and you know hear from you how the women who are in reacted and I was just amazed at both how positive visited the reactions of the services. Were and how quickly it sort of blew up. People around the world are coming forward on social media. Yeah to share their stories of sexual abuse their inspired by the many women who have accused movie mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment and worse. Dominos started good at falling of of other women. Coming forward of people who had had stated Thailand condemning. Weinstein coming out and saying this is off off. But what's really chilling is to read further down. Where more than a dozen staff members say they need a witness these incidents or knew of them of you know criminal precedings Our investigations launching that it blossomed into something much much bigger much faster than I think we ever could have. Expected said it was surreal. What Ronan Farrow has written for the New Yorker pushes the story even further and makes the open secret nature of this alleged behavior? All the more unfathomable. I was feeling very amped up about what it is to exist as a woman in this particular moment. What do you remember about publication day relief relief?.

Jury selection begins in Harvey Weinstein trial

"Jury selection and Harvey Weinstein's criminal trial is underway in New York City Deep with opening statements scheduled for next week the pressure is on to assemble a panel of twelve jurors and about half a dozen or so alternates. The process this has been far from simple the wraps media and politics reporter. Jay Clara Chan has been following the case from the courtroom in downtown Manhattan and she joins joins us now from a courtroom hallway. Welcome to the show anything sadly so a headline grabber. From the case as week was that the Supermodel gee-gee had deed was dismissed. Let's talk about the bigger issues. What do we know about the jury pool size and how the selection process is going? Sure so did actually had sort of a accused stage jury selection process for last week that was essentially what we're calling a pre screening. Prospective jurors given a questionnaire already fill out and then based on their responses on that train drivers psych decide. You know we want to strike this person or not And then starting to gate which was more more exciting About one forty perspective jurors came into the courtroom and so there was a live who questioning period between the attorneys and from on that right after this morning session that just wrapped up. It looks like by jurors have been selected already so one of the things that lawyers for Harvey Weinstein have been arguing. Is that people's history of sexual assault or knowing somebody who is a victim or survivor of sexual assault should disqualify qualify them from serving on the jury. How is that issue been debated in the courtroom one of the sort of bigger misperceptions even for high profile case? It's like this is even the idea of knowing about one or having heard of the accusations about him. That doesn't actually necessarily immediately disqualify someone for the attorneys. It's more picking apart. How does that information potentially impact would that information potentially impact then or give them a by sees When considering the evidence that will be presented before them and then obviously one actually or for that is if perspective juror has experienced sexual assault or I know someone who has experienced sexual assault? I mean that is something that could very much influence how they view a case and for the most part what. We've been seeing so hard hard for jurors who way that has been the case They've sort of stood up and said you know. I don't think I can be fair impartial. And sort of already indicated a kid that they they shouldn't be selected. So that's something we've been seeing there. As potential jurors are being interviewed as part of this process. How much is coming out about? How much they they know about Harvey Weinstein and what he has been accused of trying to varying degree but I think large number of prospective jurors who've come in and have indicated that they're familiar with either him mother person refer somewhat about his case? Obviously there is the greedy shins. And there's some in perspective jurors that say you know. I actually read William Fair books so I feel like I'm bit too familiar with this case therefore I can't be impartial fair And other people might be saying you know I. I've heard about him but I think I can put that aside. And just consider what's being presented as evidence etc testimony Cetera if I were to be selected for jury Ronan Farrow is the author of catch and kill any wrote about Harvey Weinstein in the New Yorker. It sounds like one juror already. Freddie has been held in potential contempt of court over tweeting about the case. What does the judge said about the way the jurors I guess lawyer should be behaving in terms of what they're saying outside of court? Yes that actually happened just this morning. They had called back in. A inspector would sending some tweets that he shouldn't have been And so he's going to have to come back in March after the trial should be all that got to essentially make his case why he shouldn't be held in contempt. I mean I I think even on the first day though when it comes to public comments about the trial or how people should be talking about it You know the judge told the defense you know don't Discouraging towards the witnesses. Don't talk about then if you're giving interviews You know to the jurors. Don't don't talk about the case if you're still perspective or don't talk about this case with family or friends don't text Oh tweet about it etcetera and then also for journalists we have to very careful about You know talking hallways and things. He's like that. We need to make sure that we do not in any way interact with jurors in a way that could put anything like that. We're talking with Jay. Claire Chan from the rap about jury selection in the Harvey Weinstein trial in New York. She's joining us from New York City courtroom hallway. Weinstein's defense team has requested a change in venue. which which I believe the judge has denied what is their argument in terms of why the jury pool in Manhattan may not be impartial to Harvey Weinstein? I think I think it goes back to again. The idea of you know this is a very high profile case And getting that one you know was a prominent person in New York. They're comparing to that. You know it's almost impossible to avoid news of Weinstein here in Manhattan And then also in recent motions they requested then you change multiple times but more recent motions. These awful pointed to a couple of protests that have happened on some of the days of the trial as more examples of you know clearly clearly. This is something that people are talking about. It's unavoidable etcetera things like that but you know the judge has denied their requests in his reasoning. Sort of been when you know because this is a national or international story. There is no place you could go where people would not be likely to have heard him. Sometimes in questions lawyers as potential jurors sometimes emotions they file with the court. You get a glimpse of potential prosecution and defense strategies. He's as any that. Come out so far through jury selection about how this case might be tried to the trial really hinges on the accounts of two women who've come report to accuse teen. Obviously the defense will be very focused on rigorous craft damnation to go cold in these women's stories or to somehow demonstrate teacher that the relationships were consensual or that the alleged victim you know maintaining relationships with Weinstein and the prosecution on the other hand will be demonstrating a pattern of behavior that once you may or may not have engaged in And really focusing on using the the two minutes testimonies along with his to bolster day cases essentially. We're talking to on Thursday Monday. As a holiday. A hundreds of potential jurors are being interviewed. Is it really likely there will be a jury impaneled by the end of next week and that we actually might hear opening statements by unexploited. Actually I do think so. I think we are actually Schedule I'm the December tourneys. We talked to them. I WANNA say yesterday or day before and they were also pretty confident that we would be schedule mean with he this morning session just wrapped up already. Fighters have been selected. So there's still a couple more days if you do this and I. I do think by next Wednesday over here. Opening statements. J. Clara San is a media and politics reporter for the rap. She's covering the Harvey Weinstein trial in New York work and she joined us from a hallway outside the courtroom Clara. Thanks so much for coming on the show

Ronan Farrow says 'close to 50' potential Weinstein jurors were sent home for reading his 'Catch and Kill'

"This week Jury selection started for the trial of Harvey Weinstein. He's as of course this formerly super successful Hollywood producer who was accused of decades of sexual abuse more than eighty women have come forward accusing him of things. The story broke as you remember. This is kind of the beginning of the METOO movement in October of two thousand seventeen in the New York Times and the New Yorker so harvey was finally finally charged with sex crimes in New York in May of twenty eighteen. So that in and of itself is about a year and a half ago I'm not going to get into the charges. But they're horrible So yeah jury. Selection started this week and the other thing that also happened. This week is that new charges were put against him in Los Angeles so now. He's facing the possibility of two criminal trials. Meanwhile he just settled a civil suit a couple of weeks ago. So it's just all all of this tumult around you know he's very horrible allegations and it's really one of the only you know men who is going through the criminal criminal justice process in terms of these accusations. Yeah and we should underline eighty women. You said Yeah Zero Eight zero and then we have these two. You know criminal trials now the one in New York they mentioned we have two women pressing charges one is an unidentified there and even in La both of the women are unidentified in those court documents. So it's also just a big story in terms of you know what it takes to come forward yet another interesting aspect during jury selection. Is You know the idea of trying to find an impartial jury. In these cases right I mean not only are they trying to find people who don't know a whole lot about the story which at this point is extremely difficult Mac that it's been to more than two years and the stories were huge but also you know attorneys are concerned about the possibility of having an impartial. Jury when you know one in and five women have been raped in her life rate and just the idea of even if she isn't super familiar with the Weinstein story just dealing with sexual assault in her life of either herself or someone she knows like could also create someone who is partial in one way or another Ronan Farrow tweeted on Thursday night that he is heard the fifty potential jurors fifty have been released so far we all read his book right and killed and so it's weird. The only thing I will add is that hearing the stories of these women. Yeah you're not only struck by their ultimate bravery in coming forward at great risk in themselves but just the endless amounts of people all right protected. Harvey Weinstein this. Systemic cover-ups over a decade can't get horrifying. It's yeah and it's extraordinary. How much much in how pervasive that was among everybody police and and colleague Turney everybody? Yeah Yeah I want to ask this question about impartial impartial jury and jury of our peers because when we talk when we are supposed to be having our be tried before a jury of our peers so many of our peers have have been victims of sexual harassment or sexual assault and so is it. What does impartiality really mean here? If you're throwing out all of the folks who might have been affected by crimes it's like this that gets even bigger question around. Just the idea of Lake is the crew. Does the criminal justice system work in these cases you know and you look at the fact act that this settlement came out earlier this month where women at least got some money out of it. I mean. Obviously that doesn't result in Weinstein actually going to jail which I would imagine. Imagine is extremely important to a lot of these victims but yeah I mean I don't know I don't know how you get an impartial

Hollywood Producer Harvey Weinstein's Criminal Trial Begins in New York

"Breakdown. I'm Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown. Joining me is Matt Bellamy of the Hollywood reporter and Matt as people who follow the news no The Harvey Weinstein trial has finally finally gotten underway in New York. That is As this trial was getting underway with jury selection Meanwhile he was indicted in Los Angeles for two assaults of rape and a sexual assault two consecutive days in two thousand thirteen. Jackie Lacey the. Da came up with that and a party immediately respond to Harvey's lawyers By saying I assume I don't know because there was more negative publicity than there's already been which is a lot what we have to postpone the New York trial because of the these charges against me in Los Angeles and the judge wasn't having it. No the judge has been pretty adamant that this trial is going to take place in New York. He has also been pretty tough on Weinstein in the courtroom as well. He admonished him earlier this week for texting exciting or using one of his two phones in the courtroom basically saying that he's GonNa throw him in jail if he doesn't stop and do you really want to spend the rest of your life in jail for texting in a courtroom room. Yeah he had already been admonished about this business with the cell phones and he He can't seem to help himself. I mean it reminds reminds you of a summit at your teenage teenage kid. Who can't let put the phone down some adults I should say also but when you're in trial where you could potentially end up in prison for a very long time? It seems extreme now. Of course whatever the argument was about these L. A. Indictments and of course it means that whatever happens. In New York he will be facing Potentially a trial here as soon as the trial or at some point following what happens in New York. Whatever happens here The problem is of course in New York that there has been so much publicity so they have tons is a potential jurors and so far they've had to send tons of them home and this. This is promises to be quite a long trial so I think some of the jurors are probably Lee jumping up and saying yes I will have a problem being objective. It the requirement isn't that they've never heard of the Harvey Weinstein allegations the requirement that the judge is asking is. Can you be objective and people are saying nope. I don't think I can and I think partly is because that trial just looms large. Yeah we we gotta look at the questionnaire that the jurors prospective jurors are are being given and it includes things like have you ever worked in the entertainment industry you know. Have you ever known someone who's been the victim of sexual assault things like that and the jurors are coming up with with some pretty specific responses. One Juror said that she had just finished reading. Catching kill. The Ronan Farrow Book which She's believe because her to not have a very favorable impression of Harvey Weinstein and I believe this person is likely going to be dismissed. I mean those are the kinds of things that the Weinstein defense team is is up against a I think if you're if you think you could be called as a potential jury you're probably running right maybe. The sales of catching killen are spiking New York. So people can say I read that book. I really can't do this now. Harvey Weinstein has turned around and tried to get the judge who has been. You can say hard on him. I mean Harvey has really I in my opinion asked for trouble because he has done things like you know there have been questions about whether he tampered with his ankle. Monitor's since he seems to have vanished from tracking at certain points and then the issue with the cell phone and whatnot and his lawyers. I I will note His lawyer gave an interview. Donna Rotan oh In which I thought it was an argument to be made that she was attempting to intimidate. One witness the Santa Bella Figura. She basically said you know she's been an actress all her life which is true observation but then she went on to say. I thought in rather ominous sounding way. I hope she's pro. I'm sure she's prepared to answer and sit on the witness stand and that of course prompted the prosecutors say there should be a gag order which I thought was not a bad idea and the judge basically denied that but said you know I'm not going to issue a gag order but you do need to shut up and I think that was largely aimed at at Harvey's lawyer but as I was saying earlier there wasn't attempt to disqualify the judge saying he was being mean to Harvey. Yeah and I think that'll be a theme. We're GONNA see throughout this trial. Because not only are they trying to win the case. But they're also setting up a potential appeal if harvey is convicted. So more will be revealed. That's Bellamy editorial director of the Hollywood reporter. He joins me this Monday at one thirty on the business. I'm Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood

I think I think I mean I couldn't find anything on any of these websites saying that the score was higher now so I think it's back to sixteen hundred said. Writing Section is optional optional. And students who choose to take this component of the test received three separate scores each ranging from one to four so that's like a separate thing that one to four roll Oerlikon. Act Score number. It's just an extra thing to do if you wanted to. He wanted extra shit on that. Stressful Day says sixteen hundred. Yeah there were an option on the. Sat for me to just write a short story on any goddamn topic. They wanted to throw my way. That's what I would have picked Dino what you got on your sat. No WH- wh-. Here's what I do know I think told us after Ronin left I took it really young like seventh grade and then I took it again in. I guess the eleventh or Twelfth Grade Probably Eleventh did better on it in seventh grade than I did in eleventh grade. Probably more more reflective of how much I cared at that point about going to college which I did not I was not good at it. You weren't good at. That's surprising that surprises me. I got a thirteen hundred head but isn't that great pretty. It's pretty good. It's great is pretty good but I went as a t class. 'CAUSE I took a couple of times in the first time I got a low sky. Got One so got a one on one thousand maybe I seven hundred and then I took it again. I took it three times three times. Yeah took it again. And I increased my score by fairmount and then I took it again. I increased again and good job. You should have kept. What's the limit? How many times can you take you can? This is another way that this test is a little bit. Flawed favors like rich people who who can spend the money on it. Yeah that's true but my score was even. I got a six fifty for verbal and math. Oh that's that's very very nice. I was pretty proud of that. That's great more of the evenness on the score. Of course you know very symmetrical which just goes to show. It's so silly he doesn't. It has no correlation to anything. Because I am I would say ten times better at English reading comprehension Shen than Merrill skills than I am math so the fact that that did not parlay into the score. Yeah shows it really has nothing to do with anything thing. Yeah so I'd have to imagine. My math. Portion was much higher than my probably free. Maybe because you had to is is recrossed. A lot of reading I can imagine reading comprehension. Well that was yeah. It'd be really tough for a second and look at those paragraphs I it would be in full flight panic like Oh my God there. How many quiet my brain goes? There's so many lines okay. And then news extraneous information in oils very stressful times element of Stressing okay the term in Gay Literature. The best boy in the world thyroid they are. That's what he said. It's called the best little boy in the world about gay sons evening to compensate or feeling like they need to be and all of the areas that basically they can let you down and get married and have kids categories not really for the. It's not really that. I don't think it's not really for the parents it's more of. Let's see since young. Gay Men cannot be assured of family support peer approval or God's love as long as they hide their sexual orientation from everyone it may be wise for them not to invest their self worth than those life. Domains success in these domains cannot be controlling guaranteed when one is gay unlike success in academics. Thanks good luck and being the best at competitive tasks which are relatively more controllable and guaranteed with at least some effort where they can control Bala nation really not to keep getting into shows and stuff we watch but don't fuck with cats. Yeah it's talking about this on the last episode now. It was really now that I've seen it once again. I found myself you know wanting this person to be punished thoroughly but with a tremendous amount of compassion and for this kid growing up in Canada being called Gay pejoratives is all life and no friends. How's how's it going to impact you? Yep People don't just arrive place no yet there. By experience of a guy might have been twisted already. rebe yeah like I said last night. Do you think if that bullying hadn't happened. He would have done all the things he did. And I said I don't think just. The absence of the Boeing would have prevented that but I do think if he were totally emerged in a friendship circle and activities and a bunch of other stuff that was rewarding. Yeah I don't think he's on that path. I know I saw breaking. Yeah check it out now flex. Don't fuck with cats. It's a wild wild ride. Sure case a Lotta turns. Strap yourself in your bed. That's an Easter Egg. Oh in another part that this isn't a spoiler about that the a big takeaway. I had was social. Media's influence on people people Another question is if the facebook group so the story of people haven't seen it is a kittens exactly and posts. The video of it and a group formed on facebook that sort of decides. We're GONNA find this guy. Giuliani style and it really spurs him on on and makes him feel famous which is what he was searching for in the first place and it really escalates from there and there is a question of how. How responsible are these people see now? Yeah that became the big question of the documentary. My issue was an I couldn't get. Kristen narrowly see this The point I was making her maybe she thought and just didn't agree but I was like what's so interesting is all the people involved are living alter egos online everyone. The people hunting him him. And I'm like it's so interesting that all the players in this story Ori are doing. The same thing is no one's playing an evil character wants plane heroic investigators several of them are playing heroic investigators. But they're using different names. Yeah she was saying she can act dumb. She connects Mar.. She loves the ability to be all these different things in this virtual world and I just started thinking of the whole group of people that are drawn that and actually live on a computer. They're drawn to that anonymity are those alter egos. They're all participating in something similar. They're living out a version online that they WANNA be that they're not in real life or at least that differs everybody on social media. That's every single human bearing Lamma Cow. Now everyone showing the version of themselves that they want the world to see. That's maybe ten percent accurate. Yeah so part of me was like this. This guy is he relieve out or is is his online persona evil as we know. That's he no right right but I'm just saying if the online world wasn't an outlet for him is he doing that stuff in a vacuum. I don't know that he is. I don't know that that just him wanting to do that as much as him wanting to play that role on the Internet. I don't know I I think this is a strike to for me to be famous and this is a way this is too easy of away and people will meet you there. People will attach onto your extremes online. I am and so I don't know I think there's something interesting to to take away about our responsibility. I really really couldn't believe at the end of all it was like the Internet is designed in such a way that you don't have a license plate on your car that they can't just know where those but those people are that are writing those things at all time is kind of crazy to me on. You can't figure out who posts a key a murderer video that blew my mind. You can't figure out the cops can't just in one second you can find out who murdered these cats by like. What computer uploaded the video and where the computer sitting at? That's kind of crazy to me. I know especially since in the last episode. You were saying you you can talk to Google and they can send you owe entire history every single place you've been. Yeah so I guess Google Kim but not the police in which seems seems a little weird not fair Okay Yeah. Nda Law in California California will be among the first places is to restrict the use of nondisclosure agreements. ooh interesting it'd be no one already. Last April New York endorse a new law that starting in two thousand thousand nineteen permits confidentiality clauses. Only at the request of the victim other laws are in the works in September. Outgoing governor Jerry Brown signed into the law bill that would ban nondisclosure provision in settlements involving claims of sexual assault harassment or discrimination based on sex the California bill one of a raft of Hashtag metoo inspired laws goes into effect January. First Only God. You're free Oh you know how. He gave that piece of advice for famous parents about maybe giving their kid a different surname. I thought that was interesting because then. Then you're talking about Anderson Cooper and I was like yeah I never think of Anderson Cooper is coming from famous Vanderbilt Gloria Baharan because his name is cooper right so if it was vanderbilt yeah probably would constantly be reminded of that Anderson Vanderbilt. Yeah what a name. I don't think that would be as a successful show.

"And structures sure set up to conceal it. I mean it's a it's a puzzle. It's a mystery. It's significant news the coupling of those conversations with my sister and my evolution in my understanding of what she had gone through and that reporters understanding of how important that beat was led to me covering that issue more and more even on my MSNBC THIS NBC program and really coming to understand the veil of silence around it. I write in the book about covering Cosby and producers not understanding outstanding particularly kind of veteran producers who had been around for a long time and we're very establishment. They're thinking just not getting. WHY WOULD WANNA raise? These allegations when cost became Let's just say in the most basic level there are stories people wanna hear and they're generally stories people don't WanNa hear and they're kind of measured in either eyeballs in the viewership or not a box office receipts. We kind of know what story's people have an appetite for and I would imagine there just wasn't an appetite to take America's favorite household household comedian and find something terrible about it. It's not the story that anyone is going to want to consume or create or anything. Exactly yeah and it was almost considered impolite to bring it up. I mean the example that run. Remember having a biographer. Who had would written an authorized biography of Cosby on this? was you know right before the Shit really hit the fan all over again about about cosby but the allegations had been there for years. They're Tina fey had joked about it years ago. If there's by the way on all of these issues there's always some clip of Tina fey joking at the AH but You know what's funny as well as you were talking about your unique situation and I I kinda went back to the question. I asked you six hours ago. which was why do people have some? I'm kind of pre wired connection protection and you know what I was thinking while I was saying it as I think we're all primed for it by our parents. We love our parents parents in so many of us have pretty deeply flawed parents. And we've learned to love and overlook some pretty big transgressions just in childhood. I think that's where we're kind all primed. It's like Yeah Dad's not perfect. MOM's not perfect but we love them. We're sticking with them. I mean it must be part of the think it varies in these cases. When you talk about a bill cosby or a Michael Jackson I think you do have a generation or this is built into the Woody Allen reaction to I mean there are woody Allen fans fans who just sit on twitter all day and like harass my sister? They make their fulltime job very often. The tactic is also blame the mother. So it's it's all direction at my mom mom. God bless her just all she did was sort of dragged along for the ride and I think do the right thing ultimately and supporting my sister. But it's terrible terrible toll and certainly she was never the instigator of any of it. Well no one's even thinking about it for me as a parent like I was molested in there is a parent but thank thank you the parent and as I would be I would take my daughter having been molested under my on my watch way worse than I'd take my own the pain of that that has to be one of the deepest trenches of her sadness agonizing sadness and you know I imagine feelings of guilt over the fact that it happened and let him have access to a horrible horrible thing in private homes have heard her. You know when my sister says you know I'm right in the NOP Adam coming forward and I'm doing I've seen my mom both say the right thing to where like of course they'll support you but also just know this Nami is GonNa come again. Yeah and so I got props to every parent who stood by a child with this kind of allegation the said did you watch Aaron lease wonderful documentary. Sorry about the The Olympic coach Gymnastics Nassar. But that's a horrible story so it's a very horrible story on all levels but for me. The neighbor of at the worst moment was a dad who did not believe as daughter in for years didn't and then eventually came to accept that it was true and then killed himself. You can't even begin to evaluate. The ripples van emanate out from these things and for the kids you have these kinds of. I mean you would understand it better than I. I can't imagine the phenomenon of not being believed by your parents. Rhyme and this is important parents even in the face of all of that machine and dismembering a negative backlash rush that they do stand up for their kids in these cases. Yeah but what I see in that reaction is there are people who they have grown up carrying about out someone and their work and you know and you see that in the Michael Jackson reaction example as well. It's so deeply emotional oil and it does connect to as you say the ways in which you know we look up to our parents and there's no Arguing on a rational factor of in the level for me. I feel like I come at it. Pretty evenly because there's incentives on both sides right in in my sister's case for instance. Yes I care about her and believer but there's a terrible cost to my believing her right off means going up against that whole machines and also like I of all people would love to You know not have a pedophile father. So I kind of I actually understand the the super fans who just you know. Sit there harassing Michael Jackson's accuser. As I would argue that and I'm not excusing them but more trying to understand and explain them what they're really defending is as a piece of themselves. That is a highlight of their time. On Planet Earth into some Otieno Association with fucking Annie Hall or a thriller or in that that you feel like the option now is to let that go to believe this means I must reject this experience. I had with it which I don't think is required of anyone. I had exactly as much fun skating Saturday night. At my daughter's roller skate. Birthday party. Too many Michael Jackson songs. I can still embrace that and absolutely abhor him in the horrendous things totally. I think it's incumbent on all of us no matter whether it's your parent or an artist you love to have enough of an anti-establishment streak that you can call into question those authority figures and those points of emotional significance in your life and absolutely if you want to separate out the work and continue to enjoy the work you know. I can still enjoy a late night. Run of Chinatown From also acknowledging Ching The guy who directed that is a terrible In a criminal right I mean my God I could talk to you. I'm I'm like as we're talking to Mike this this'll be one of the first Interviews that has zero at A.. takeout anything that you think. We'll get me cancels. She has a chance on so setting on her on her to this about at that for real of of this idea that people are cancelled now forever. I think it's great when people are cancelled for terrible crimes and incredibly stupid when people are cancelled for saying doing the wrong thing in less the thing that said is rooted in or reveals some set of actual actions that are malicious or a pattern or an attitude that is bigger than just the thing that has said but I think by and large if someone opens mouth and Insert Foot and then apologizes like why. Why are we wasting our time hi? I'm canceling that. When there's actual cry to cancel that is my main objection to it is just we end up? Spending all this capital and energy into into things that aren't really the enemy You know the clearest for me examples like Hillary Clinton regrettably said all lives matter. I think she then came. Understand why that was not the right thing to say and then apologize and it won't go away. It was like because David Duke still operating. He's still out there. There's actual white nationalist right now planning something we got to move on past this Right and Hillary Clinton is one of those examples of someone who's just a magnet for. Yes asks she won't she represents a lot more than any you know unfair misogynistic headlines all the time and which is you know not to say that she is above above reproach or valid questioning. Various things I've been among the people who have raised questions about her relationship with Harvey Weinstein and so forth but In addition to the valid question she gets a whole heap of unfair sexist criticism. Go Yeah Yeah so my my my last two curiosities are I have had a very complicated relationship with my father. He was not the data. I wanted among the things that occurred to me that I was resentful at him about was in. This is so selfish and low of me. But it's just the truth is I wanted to respect the person in my life who is supposed to one day pat me on the back and say a good job. You did it. I felt robbed of that. I was like it won't mean anything if you say this to me because you didn't live your life in this way that I would have wanted you to live. It's it's so much beyond that in your case and I just I'm just curious about that. That's that's that story's over right you'll probably never speak with him. I would imagine or there'll.

But more trying to understand and explain them what they're really defending is as a piece of themselves. That is a highlight of their time on planet Earth into some emotional association with fucking Annie Hall or a thriller or in that that you feel like the option now is to let that go to believe this means I must reject this experience. I had with it which I don't think is required of anyone. I had exactly as much fun skating Saturday night. At my daughter's Roller Skate Birthday Party. Too many Michael Jackson songs. I can still embrace that and absolutely abhor him in the horrendous things totally. I think it's incumbent on all of us no matter whether it's your parent or an artist you love to have enough of an anti-establishment streak that you can call into question those authority figures and those points of emotional significance in your life and absolutely if you want to separate out the work and continue to enjoy the work you know. I can still enjoy a late night. Run of Chinatown From also acknowledging Ching The guy who directed that is a terrible In a criminal right I mean my God I could talk to you. I'm I'm like as we're talking to Mike this this'll be one of the first Interviews that has zero at A.. takeout anything that you think. We'll get me cancels. She has a chance on so setting on her on her to this about at that for real of of this idea that people are cancelled now forever. I think it's great when people are cancelled for terrible crimes and incredibly stupid when people are cancelled for saying doing the wrong thing in less the thing that said is rooted in or reveals some set of actual actions that are malicious or a pattern or an attitude that is bigger than just the thing that has said but I think by and large if someone opens mouth and insert foot and then apologizes like why. Why are we wasting our time hi? I'm canceling that. When there's actual cry to cancel that is my main objection to it is just we end up? Spending all this capital and energy into into things that aren't really the enemy You know the clearest for me examples like Hillary Clinton regrettably said all lives matter. I think she then came. Understand why that was not the right thing to say and then apologize and it won't go away. It was like because David Duke still operating. He's still out there. There's actual white nationalist right now planning something we got to move on past this Right and Hillary Clinton is one of those examples of someone who's just a magnet for. Yes asks she well she represents a lot more than any you know unfair misogynistic headlines all the time and which is you know not to say that she is above above reproach or valid questioning. Various things I've been among the people who have raised questions about her relationship with Harvey Weinstein and so forth but In addition to the valid question she gets a whole heap of unfair sexist criticism. Go Yeah Yeah so my my my last two curiosities are I have had a very complicated relationship with my father. He was not the data. I wanted among the things that occurred to me that I was resentful at him about was in. This is so selfish and low of me. But it's just the truth is I wanted to respect the person in my life who is supposed to one day pat me on the back and say a good job. You did it. I felt robbed of that. I was like it won't mean anything if you say this to me because you didn't live your life in this way that I would have wanted you to live. It's it's so much beyond that in your case and I just I'm just curious about that. That's that's that story's over right you'll probably never speak with him. I would imagine or there'll.

"And we would need many more hours to discuss like what should happen and Afghan arrived in the context of What I was writing about in the time I was there? There was a small but vocal contingent of diplomats saying we should try to negotiate our way out because this military solution isn't gonNA work right and I think ultimately something to do that and we're finally years late kind of coming around to that idea. People are just now starting to speak out some more happening with the Taliban and so forth and and there's been fits and starts to that it's complicated but certainly we lost a window of opportunity where I think there was a viable negotiation path. That we didn't take because there was a a frenzy of military action and White House in this case the Obama White House in the thrall of these celebrity generals. Right you know to have the appearance of defeat feet if we left at that exact timers always part of the political incentive. There's a do think that there's a real phenomenon in domestic politics where there's there's sort of an intoxication that comes along with the war. Yeah I mean Obama. I think as an individual was very much not susceptible that he wanted to get out of places assimilationist in that way but also was a political pragmatist and understood the need to fall in line with the military brass various points. And you know you see an interesting thing. Between in terms of the Obama Administration where the first term was marked much more by a rejection of diplomacy and I go through these examples of that in that book and the Second Term Firm did belatedly kind of come around to okay. We need to invest more in diplomatic activity big. I can't remember what I was watching or reading. But his big itself itself admitted failure was a how he dealt with Israel right. That was something he he set out to do with great fervor and it just. He didn't do what he was hoping to do. Do you have four hours to talk about.

"Not in the Weinstein thing certainly not in many of them but in some of of them I do have a hunch. Both people sincerely believe they're telling the truth. I think we do a process experiences so differently again with the baggage of fears and insecurities. We all carry as we already discussed. I have events in my life that you would think would be. There's no way we remember this differently. My brother and I watching seen my mom get beat up by our Stepdad. That's a very memorable experience. He has it in a completely other house that we lived at. We have it in different houses and we have the you know what I'm saying when I experience in my own life that kind of distance of like how could we have this drastic different memories of this experience and yet I witnessed it all the time. And benign things. Aren't there many cases where it's like. I believe her and I believe him. I believe that they may have had completely different experiences. Appearances walking away from the situation so I certainly in principle that can be true. I think that in the stories that I have chosen to report. They're actually on a specific subset that that is about sufficiently violent criminal allegations that you don't get into those gray areas as much. I mean the prominent examples of stories about sexual violence that I've reported really are sometimes. There are less violent anecdotes in there that are meant to establish an mo but they're always rooted in in very very serious criminal claims where there wouldn't be a lot of room to have been a reasonable interpretation of events that would be a totally essential. Is it frustrating. Because I can tell by that answer. You're making a real distinction as you totally should between what you've reported did it on and what I will just say when I read the Z's account I of course that the difference is it frustrating to and I think how might be guilty of having sometimes lumped you into all of the stuff in is is it frustrating and all that what you're doing such a specific thing. I mean this is where we get back to. The distinction talked about earlier like I am not the high priestess of the metoo movement. Toronto Burke who founded the METOO movement in that term and is an activist working in the trenches is with survivors. You know advocating for them. She's the high priestess of the me too and those are different jobs. I mean I admire her so much. She's truly bad as individual all. And I'm really grateful as a reporter that you can put out facts into the world. And then there are activists who have an agenda and turn them into change. That's a meaningful part of our. Our culture should work but actually to preserve the independence of this kind of reporting. I don't even get involved in that. I don't really have attend. Of course I care about the issue. I have a belief if that you know a variety of the issues. I've reported on need more attention on them. Yeah but I really maintain the posture of going wherever the facts. Take take me and not going forward with the story if they don't feel like it's rock solid and not being an advocate for my sources. You're trying to respect them and make them feel protected in the process But you're not carrying water for their set of facts until you have the evidence to back it up so that is a hard distinction. Shen and yes. I I think for outside observers. Who just here swirl of names yeah they understand? There's a lot of social change happening around this issue. There's no reason into necessarily understand like this person as a reporter and this other person is an activist and this other person as a source who came forward but it is relevant. Because I was talking to my wife about you I guess maybe it was when you were on Bill Maher recently and she made a point to say to me. Ronin commitment is to investigate situations that that is what you're you're Kinda mission is your mission isn't to like you're not trying to go expose every person who's what you believe in everyone should be heard and everything and should be investigated. I love your wife. I love her even more hearing that she's heard my talking points. Hey I was. I thought maybe you're 'cause yes. I am very supportive of the movement and yet at the same time I kind of reject believe all women. I just don't believe all anybody to know and it's actually. It's antithetical medical to what I do to to say. Believe all anybody. I've always been very clear I talk about this. A lot in my ethos is listen to wall survivors of sexual violence. Listen to all women. Listen to a many categories of people. We weren't listening to for too long and I think the best service yes you can do to claims of this type is to investigate them thoroughly and even adversary. I was having this conversation for one of these episodes of the podcast with A. Ah Young Woman named Emily Nester. Who was one of the first Weinstein accusers to come forward and had you know documentation to back it up and so forth so so? Her account of events was very important to the early phase of the reporting and she was reminding me that I basically I grilled her to the point where it was an extraordinarily unpleasant process for her. I've I've made sources cry with my question. I mean it's it's as every question your denounces going to ask ultimately right that's right. Yeah kind kinda like when you prepare a witness right for testimony you have to act as the prosecution. Even if you're the defense with the important distinction that I'm not I don't have the agenda preparing preparing them. I literally have the objective of finding out. What's true rights and God bless every source who puts up with that signs up for it stands like? That's it's part of the process and I try to do it in a way that's compassionate and makes them feel safe but also you know I think ultimately they understand that's important as I was reading about your life in your underpin status graduating at fifteen and then went on to Yale Law. School got a doctorate in law. Won't buckle the fuck up your Rhode. He's got to know is insane. It's preposterous but in. He passed the New York bar. So I have to imagine at some point you. At least we're considering practicing the law you know you get into this tunnel vision when you're in any closed universe like that like legal profession in my case and I think I knew going into law school even going to Yale Law for people who don't know law school Yale Law is Kinda. It's the Montessori School of Law Schools Schools our bill and Hillary where bill and Hillary they turn out a lot of the great sort of legal professors and judges the stereotype about the places like you. Kinda don't don't learn black letter law. They're gonNA hate me for saying but people don't go there and then there's the vast majority of them in fact do. There's plenty of Great Braxton. I think the law but just relative to the competition relative to a Harvard law even their quirks jail all like you don't have to take property there's basic you don't have to take tax like there's basic gaps in your legal knowledge. I'm going to merge with I love that about the place because you can have this incredibly we kind of Philosophical Legal Education and I was very very fortunate to be able to go there and use it as training. That didn't didn't necessarily have to be for practicing or too big law firm so I was a summer associate at a big firm but I knew pretty early on that I wanted to do something a little more public services. Let's see I guess right so looking at the road it would appear from the outside and correct me if I'm wrong that this specific focus of your journalism Seems to have found you is that is that accurate you worked in the Obama Administration and you were doing work in Afghanistan and Pakistan with how the US government is interacting with non-governmental in civilian populations over there right. Yeah so I was there in two thousand nine in. And there was a a resurgence of what came to be known as Coin Strategy Counterinsurgency Strategy and it was a school of thought the champion by in general portray us in the idea. was you send. The soldiers into the community is and there's a series of steps where you know you you clear throughout the enemies but then you're actually like living with the local population and trying to win them over and there's a huge body of debate about. Is this a terrible full approach. Is this a good approach. And you know ultimately I wrote a book failures of our policy in Afghanistan war on piece by now but You know in this case I was writing about is how are militarization of foreign policy. That happens as we scale back. Our investment in diplomacy almasy can backfire and how Afghanistan is a great example of that. And there's many many great books about how we've messed up Afghanistan Astana over and over again. And it's this quagmire and famously the graveyard of empires an. I don't know that I'm going to be able to offer any new insights into that in this conversation but I think that whatever the merits of that counterinsurgency strategy that we were just talking about it did not work there right. Did you have the sense. San Cited as you're flying over Afghanistan. There's nothing to capture. It's the most kind of theoretical place to have a war. There's no town to overrun on. There's there's nothing it's just mountains and deserts and you fly from one previous Soviet base to another previous Soviet base. And you realize like this isn't really elitist thing you can get your arms around yet. Everyone's there you know again. I'm not I'm not making a case for Oregon's involvement there. What blows my mind is we? Just keep making making this mistake of thinking and it's often it's out of the Pentagon our our military brats just is able to sell our whatever the white houses at the time on this idea that we can win and it's just not how it works over and over again going back to the proxy wars of the Cold War era in the whole country of Afghanistan as it exists now is a creation of proxy wars gone wrong. Yeah and that's not.

"I I think it's fair. It just shouldn't be applicable. If you have five committed I am totally for some crimes then generally rurally. I'm against them across the board. I kind of am because even if it's not criminal it's still a way to to inflict power on somebody in general and even just treatment behavior all of that stuff even if it's not like a criminal thing or a well but let's just For us in our exact situation. Let's say so you're coming into the house in you're going to be exposed to every aspect of our life and then now you're in a position addition if you were a piece of shit what's your not to go write a book about the fact that I far too much and I just like embarrassing angle needs in here all the time he farts too much. Well embarrassing grows stuff that could potentially let's even say a diminished my income because Samsung doesn't want a guy who's got pulsa flatulence to sell up refrigerator and now hold only so in some way some non-disparagement Cla Leave the two are related. And there's a lot of overlap. I don't I've observed that Chris Index had sex in three months. Like there's this I I totally agree but let's say that you do something to me. I get fired because of that. Let's say that also affects my my income moving forward if I'm trying to get another job and I can't because I can't really say well. This is actually what happened. I I don't think that's fair. I know I agree. So are you seeing non-disbursement. Sounds like that would be the compromise. I think there are always going to be valid. Applications of confidentiality clauses. Says of some kind. I mean I'll give you a more clear-cut example. You're a scientist working in a lab on some incredibly sensitive technology for for you know whatever a car company and they have to be able to limit contractual in some way you bring that to a competitor. There's there's very clear cut. Cases is where I don't think this is a terrible social ill to have this as a legal institution agreed to your point. Monica that they were over used widely and particularly tickets in the context of the kinds of stories. I did just years of working with sources who were scared shitless because they had signed the bad version of this. which is you know? Harvey Weinstein impeded me a million dollars to destroy all evidence of the crime. He did And never speak about it again. That's one of the episodes of the podcast is about this young woman. Ambra Tehran's who participated in a police sting and got a recording them admitting to groping her very dramatic crazy story. He gives her a million dollars and and she signs away her right ever talk about it and has all devices scrubbed of the recordings and thankfully a secret way to preserve a copy. Do Yeah Yeah I feel like if a criminal active something criminal has happened that should pretty much void. Nda Is there any room legally for that to be part of how their instructors so that should be the case and there's conversations happening in different legislative bodies now about how you make that ah more clear and like actually preemptively preventing them from being used in cases of sex crimes. I think that that actually is now the case in California in the wake of this report is an NDA. You should probably say. Well I will sign this but what I want included in this is that this is excludes any kind of sexual misconduct towards me or something car. In various jurisdictions that is now mandatory already row for nine Ken on At this point do the kind of agreement I just outlined of it is expressly for the purpose of covering up a sex crime so lawyers who are engaged in brokering that kind of agreement should know that yeah. They can't do that and they should put a stop to it. If someone is trying and now just in a juicy gossipy way do you have a sense of global sense or cumulative sense of what Harvey had paid out over the years. I mean I won't speculate other than say it's obviously it's in the seven figures because So a lot of money and it is one of the remarkable things about that story and so many others that there was a whole echelon of powerful person news just buying their way out of criminal accountability for a long time. Well I watched that loudest foists in the room which was incredibly well acted by Russell. Crowe just WANNA add. Did you watch that. It didn't watch it but I know Gretchen a little. Yeah I'm sure you know the particulars of of all these things. But they were paying out. You know tens of millions of dollars. I mean it really added up to huge amounts of money. Well that's where I think. The reporting is especially important because we need as many journalists as possible digging into cases of corporate culture normalizing that sort of thing and I think it's pretty widespread. I mean I've done now reporting on NBC on CBS. It wasn't just you know a single rogue studio like the Weinstein Company. Happy to your point Fox was in one of the examples. I hope that we're seeing the death of this idea that powerful guys figureheads of these companies are so indispensable danceable that it's worth concealing potentially criminal activity it just it never is. It's bad for the bottom line you know in the CBS story when word leaked that we were about to run at the New Yorker. Not even when the article itself hit like ten hours before when I think the Hollywood reporter put out a piece saying you know run fair is about to put out this. CBS reporting it'd been much root for months and sitting with my fact checker and we're of course just focused on the one thing we have to do getting the reporting rate and kind of trying to tune out the noise but meanwhile the news the cycle around this is starting and he turns his phone towards me and CBS's stock has just to plummet only last like a value on the one hand. And you hate to see that happen based on speculation I mean that's the actual facts investors on the other hand. I hope that's a lesson for companies everywhere. They thought they were doing the right thing for the bottom line covering this up. I mean this was a birthday knew that there was a criminal investigation homeboy. They knew knew that there were payouts and they kept him in power. Hope now people have internalized the lesson like actually. There's a cost to that. I imagine you gather all of of your information and your structuring and writing you do all these things in your fact checking and that has this whole. I would imagine excitement to it like you really onto something. You've really only got something and I wonder what the journey is from going like. Fuck I got this. This story is good. It's solid. I'm very proud of it. And then the panic the chatter sadder the legal threats the stock dropping. You now really are responsible for like a billion dollar movement. Do you lose your conviction fiction at all you go. Oh my God. If I've got this wrong now I am fuck fucked or you at that point or at your so solid on it or was that just you only get to that point. If you're so solid on it give you an example. I had a major political story that would have been the kind of thing that would take over the news cycle for a week or something thing and we had it flea drafted and multiple source. But I and my editors just decided at the eleventh hour not multiple multiple source enough. We wanted another voice in the room for dinner. Particular thing that had happened. And it's just never worth putting it out in unless Europe roof so so rock solid and as you pointed out all of these stories generate these crazy legal threats and attacks me personally and so you're there's really no temptation to put it out prematurely. I wish I could. You know credit myself for that. It's The New Yorker has absurdly high standard of fact checking things only really progressed to that point. If you know it's going to weather the storm so because that's a way that your bolstering some confidence is as you have the the vote of this institution the New Yorker. That's behind you could lead your own confidence a little bit. Well I think just to make it more specific for people. Because there's there's no reason anyone at home would necessarily know what that process looks like. It's not like you're doing secret. Research in avoid and then saying we feel feel confident. So we're going to put this out and see how people react. The fact checking process entails going to everyone. WHO's mentioned and saying okay? Here's what we are reporting. And here's the evidence and getting all their rebuttals so no one who's a subject of this kind of reporting is this kind of reporting meaning. Investigative reporting is shocked. And you kind of know what the responses are GonNa be and calibrating to those responses. It still can be a shit storm when when it comes out publicly and even you know you see people admitting to things in fact checking and then still being underhanded in the public discourse and Shar and yeah yeah I would imagine. You're getting a lot of opportunity to exercise your muscle of constructing a real argument for the other side which I think is one of the healthiest things people can do and seems to be one of the things. People are most reluctant to do which like give it a real real shock. What is that other point of view? Absolutely and then you know it's a a way in which I think. The legal training helps. Because that's very much embedded in legal thinking and yeah and sincerely you you know. My work involves burning crazy amount of my bridges all the time. But I do think that if you're GONNA be in the crosshairs of some kind of tough investigative reporting better to have it be an outlet like the New Yorker. That's really gonNA sincerely want to hear you out all the time I listened to someone during fact fact checking process and think. Okay actually I see that point or they presented this piece of evidence that persuasive and it changes the tenor of the thing I I've had. Sometimes I guess. Yes a provocative view of some of these situations. I am of the opinion. Not Certainly.

"And I just think there's wisdom in like I said before respecting the unknown. You know if there's a sign that there might be a wider pattern than you're aware of just don't say anything for a few minutes okay. Great so this you'd be the perfect person to ask about this because I don't feel like there's room. Currently to take the non binary option which is either you come out and condemn the person Jason or you come out and defend the person is there room or is it wrong to say. Let's I don't Know Louis C. K.. Okay but I do hear many many of his friends end up on stern or any of these places and they're now put in a position where they have to kind of publicly say they don't like this person who they do like and they love. Is there room for me to go. Look I love this person and I absolutely believe the accusers and I think this person has a problem and I also love them and and to be honest. We'll continue to be friends with them and hope I'm a part of some growth in solution like is that option on table in. Should it not be or should it be. Yeah it's really tough. I mean first of all. It's not really for me to say like I'm not you know the the high priestess of what people should say about people accused are unique position. That you really are the vanguard of the metoo movement so I would hope that people would consider your opinion on how we course correct to be relevant. Well I mean this is a bit of a sidebar but I actually I don't really agree with that characterization. I see how people could see that from aways away from it but from my perspective being in it. There's a really sharp distinction I mean I'm an investigative reporter report on all kinds of corruption and malfeasance is and to me it was actually philosophically very important that the stories. I've been fortunate enough to break about sexual. Violence weren't distinct from any other serious kind of story. I think that these kinds of claims had been almost ghettoized for years and years and described as something that was distinct from any other kind of criminal. Relegate Have Loyd tabloid not news impossible to bring out of the realm of he said she said and I just based on my legal training understood. That's not the case. It's in some cases it's he said she said. And in some cases it's actually backed by tangible Benjamin evidence whether it's an audio recording or video or a paper trail of settlements to conceal something or there's eye-witnesses leave a room and saw how distraught they were. There's all sorts of mechanisms. It was your take uniquely corporate corruption not just corporate but just systems water systems whereby learning about this. Hopefully we're not just learning about an individual we're learning about the the ways they get aided and abetted and how that is baked into our culture. Our corporate practices government practices. There's all sorts of legislative legislative Implications to the reporting that I've done on.

"Of time significant sh. She was a fantastic tastic. Mom to all of us but it is a very different situation growing up with you. Know a few kids versus growing up with so many kids with. It's so many special needs who who also often were adopted older so it's not just physical special needs mental health specialists. It's ten years of abuse before for we've met some of my You know in in really tough developing country orphanage type situations and I'm very inspired by them uh-huh and how they've overcome incredible challenges but it definitely makes for a childhood where you have a great sense of perspective and also. It's hard the times. Yeah it's on the surface it was privileged and and now I'm realizing oh I had it way better for my own personal selfish desires of having all all my mom's attention at all times well we've got our shit and you know I really focus on the privilege of the positive stuff because there's plenty of I. Is it likely that amid the chaos. I better be Goddamn Sears Tower of accomplishment to get noticed absolutely not actually I think the last half of of what you said is not right. I think I felt like I had to be a kind of click the the model child in the family not to stand out or get attention and and not set set an example but to just make life easier Wa. It was not one of those situations where like I didn't have an authority figure she. It was a great mom was always authority figure but I had a sense of empathy and understanding as I would with a friend where I realized like Oh this is is this is a lady who set out to do a really good thing and is shouldering an immense burden and I better be an easy one yet with a little bit part of it. What order are you in this therefore younger than me? Because you're middle middle ish but they're older but they came after he a some of them right. I think there's also you know there's a trainer remember the term in Gay Lit. There's like the best boy in the World Theorem mid that gay sons. If feel the need to overcompensate in some tremendous way that makes sense like you're going to let them down in your mindset at that age you're going to let them down eventually on this one part you're not gonNA get married and they're they're not GonNa go to your wedding so you'd better crush the other. It is yeah and also just that you know you're gonNA get teased or ostracized for something. So you're not going to be Alpha in these particular the traditional ways but you're going to be really dominant in these other. Yeah and find now as I'm in positions where I'm like hiring people for my team and stuff stuff. There are all sorts of great arguments for hiring in a diverse way whether it's people of color or people from various gender and Sexuality Quality Minorities but one of them is definitely that you get these incredible journeys where people kind of have to assert themselves early and find themselves early. They've overcome a bunch launch. Yeah it's not even that you're selecting for that you know checking that diversity box that they bring they've honed in on what they're I'm good at. I think early like people who are growing up as minorities feel like okay. Where's the lane one? Do I excel APP because I gotTa go Gung Ho at that because yeah there's all these other elements that Monica champion cheerleader. Just letting time I do have a bow in my Aso. You're trying to look even younger. 'CAUSE you're intimidated. Emma Ronin thirty one years stories. Nice to everyone has a different journey. That informs how they respond to. Hey can you tell this. Incredibly invasive personal account of something. That's going to Abend your life if you tell it publicly and put you at odds with all these powerful interests and wait for the catch and kill podcast. That I'm doing now. That's a book but it's also a podcast right so I wrote this book catch and kill. It's this series of stories that I broke about Donald Trump and Harvey Weinstein and The various tools deployed by powerful people to suppress stories in the press manipulate news outlets and tabloids by stories for them to kill them. That's where the term no catch and kill comes from and it's also it's kind of. It's a memoir of very low point in my life where I was like physically deteriorating and not sleeping and I was on the run from literal spy is the Harvey Weinstein hired this Israeli private intelligence firm called black. Cuban they sent like a fem towel with false identities after my sources says and me and two Russian spies that hung out outside my apartment and chased me around and really quick so I have to imagine in those moments. It's both a scary intimidating at times and then other times were you like. I'm in a Goddamn James Bond movie. This is exciting. was there an excitement associated with it as well Not at the time in the midst of it because I was losing my job. scared shitless but in the aftermath writing the book. Definitely I had to make these decisions like okay priority. Number one is the reporting has to be airtight and incredibly respectful of the real life people who are affected by this so lots of fact checking lots of legal review but then also there was this process of. It's an incredibly dramatic story. That can be keun in terms of getting what I think is an important story to the widest audience. Possible so in terms of structure. Let's write it in a way. That is a page Turner and repulsive thankfully people have gotten that I haven't been eaten alive for making it dramatic and honestly at times fun like chartres it go through these incredibly credibly heavy stories you need to alternate with some levity and I'm proud without came out but now I'm doing this accompaniment podcast. The what's the catch and kill podcast straightforward name and. It's like if you finish book that you love the ideas. Then you get to spend a half hour forty five minutes with each of the characters and their little true crime documentaries about that character's life story so for the people who liked the plot of the book and want more there's new stuff and and in some cases it's people who didn't speak for the book but figured in the plot we did this episode with this wonderful woman who was an assistant to Harvey Weinstein in the ninety s named Ruina Choo who I had talked to around the initial Weinstein Story. I did in two thousand seventeen and she wasn't ready to talk Her name didn't come out at all And it's been this long journey that she talks about why she didn't speak and a lot of it is circumstantial and we'll be true for anyone you know. It's the career repercussions it's having A. Tell your spouse having tell your parents but to our point we were talking about earlier if you bring your own story to that decision I mean. She talks a lot about being Chinese British. And those two cultural forces sort of stiff upper lip thing of the English And also the kind of what she describes describes the model minority pressure of being Chinese drought. Both of them making it extra hard for her to speak. Yeah which is estimated by when I was reading about Catching kill I was. I was wondering what what what would be your most generous reasoning for why people protect act people. They admire who they love their alike. There's loyalty there's some kind of evolutionary wiring in in there to really nor the truth. I think many of us really vulnerable to that it in terms of protecting bad guys. Yeah Yeah on occasion. Yeah it's well I think we're built as a species to former judgments based on the limited data points we have and so you know. Ah I could name any number of names here but pick your favorite person comes out and says but I loved working with Roman Polanski or Woody Allen Bill Cosby and it's like of course you love of course he's going to be great to you famous person on especially famous guy on set. You're not an underage girl or you know a model old Has just been drugged or scenario and You know I am not perfect in that respect either but I try in cases where there's someone someone that I like and even care about feel loyal to coups credibly accused of this sort of thing to step outside of my own experience of that person and acknowledge that there is another universe that I don't get to see Firsthand Shar an and I think it's just about respecting the unknown as well like a great example. Simple of what you're talking about is I broke these stories about. CBS less moon values and a chain of executives under him including in the news division. And you know. Many many dozens of people talking about how culture of harassment kind of gets baked into company is practices corporate cultures. A real thing and and it can turn bad in these ways S. right and it's all these different factors from the legal department to a board. That's saying these crazy mustache twirling villainous things in the board minute meetings. They're saying like I don't care if it's dozens of women accusing him of rape Right right literally. That was very close. Estrin came on board. I remember in the wake of I did two stories back to back about Moon Vez and in the wake of the first one which had six women accusing him of assault and harassment And they were very serious stories. Was People like Ileana. Douglas Wonderful actress saying you know he jumped on top me helped me down in this business meeting and not super cool professional conduct on right right right and yet there was even after those first six came forward a real contingent of CBS talent but also in the wider Hollywood community people who race to his defense and there were people who came out and said you know. That's not the last that I know. Sure and of course that was true for them. I'm sure right but it's it's like never entered into their calculus what I knew already at that point. which is there's another six coming with them? Even more extreme dream violent claims yeah backed by a lot of evidence.

"But Ronin. I have to. I'm going to start with an admission. Please do own some of my baggage as we are so excited to have we really but I must admit increasingly over the last two days of reading about you and stuff you are from New York. You're very very well-spoken. You're very well dressed. You have great hair even right now. I'm wearing my My gym shoes so I can go to. Barry's bootcamp after wearing the sheet. Let's just take you there. Adidas boosts I over the years as I've seen you on television and stuff my terrible hang up my class warfare affair hang up or I always feel less than by people who are East Coast and well-spoken I think was initially triggered. I was like I I have a chip on my shoulder and I'm very embarrassed. Embarrassed to admit it because I'm now consumed a bunch of your stuff and I just I'm legitimately now an enormous fan of everything you've done must completely blown away with your story. I had no idea. You're a legit vendor can which we've never spoken to a real life partner wanting to such a disappointing wonder now But it's no more but you you're the youngest graduate of Bard. Does that still hold. I believe that still so hold. That is so fascinated by started college. It'll wait what what do the howser and they went to list so many lawyers. I'm basically failed Dr at heart. I suck at Organic Chem and then I went to law school but they did deferred my startup law school for two years so I could be eighteen instead of sixteen started. Las Eighteen to your gap year basically glazed Pieria. And what did you do in those. I mean that's when I started working for this Guy Richard Holbrooke. Who is this kind of veteran diplomat character? Who figured heavily in my first book doc which was called war on piece about how we're ravaging the State Department and cutting the budget and not respecting diplomats? And obviously we're seeing some of the consequences of that right right now with the impeachment stuff. Yeah and that was that with the Obama Administration so at that point this is way back. Now I'm getting there in thirty one. Are you thirty one Now triggering Oliver gets older the Monica so in her mind just like me. She's like well. I could still do that for years. How old are you? Ah Context I would never asked what I feel like the content. We're we're. We're the the kids. But I started college at at seventy nine. That's better than most not better than it. Certainly not no eleven. I started working for Holbrooke while he was doing in kind of just foreign policy freelancing like he was advising the Kerry campaign. That's how far back we're talking consultant. Yes I mean he was just you know what establishment Democrats do between regimes. He was floating around with Madeleine. Albright and stuff and I they'd worked for UNICEF for a little bit as a youth spokesperson in a couple of African countries and then later after law school I went back in during the Obama Administration Association and was in Afghanistan and Pakistan. How do you get on the track of ending up in College at eleven like? When does that process start? Well you know go to your point about me being slightly annoying and a lot of knowledge no no no no. It's me it's me it's me it's not you know it's me too and it's incumbent on me to be conscious of but I mean I look famously. Had A childhood with a lot of pain and turmoil and trauma like death and destruction in a literal sense but also had a tremendous amount on a privilege and really feel very fortunate. And you know I always had access to incredible educational opportunities and we're not everybody does and part part of that was tested in a certain way early on and then they put me in Johns Hopkins. God it's called the Center for Talented Youth Camp Basically basically you take the. Sat Really Young for that. So really what are we talking at that point. That's can't remember the exact age but it's a it's around there so you start taking the. Sat at eight nine ten. And then you know I got a score where people said okay. You're already skipping grades and taking your high school credits early and tested a certain way. So can you tell us what it is. It's I did. I did get a get perfect. Sat whatever it was at the sixteen high. Okay we'll see we're the same age. Piano was a an important big number huge number. Now people are like what the Hell is a sixteen hundred. They've got some funky other number. They added a third Kazemi's category. I still had. PTSD from ought to be clear. I did not get my high score the first time around like I took it a couple of times turns. Okay so I just want to get into the particulars a little bit because leading up to that test their steps before you're even taking the sat so ear. Mother I assume as like this fucking kids pretty bright or did you just have this crazy pension and desire in appetite for learning or were you making mom. I'm happy to MOM Kinda label. You Shit this. He's onto something and then steer you that way or was it self generated so I definitely didn't have a helicopter mom Pushing things you know. She was a single mom. I ten adopted siblings moment. Those special needs physical disabilities mental health. Issues they had to surmount and she was busy musically she was incredibly supportive. I think it was self generated. I mean I think there's always an element and of wanting to impress either mom or like the figurative mom places like a yawning bottomless cavern of insecurity. That I'm constantly filling sure yeah among us. It's really shocking. I'm good visit objectively actively the most attractive human beings planet earth in here. And you ask them where they see when they look in the mirror and they see this same gargoyles. AC Boggling there is no one can have a sense of themselves but well it's fascinating to me though that everyone has a different species of insecurity. There's always that thing that like just hits you. Where are you live when someone insults you about it or where? You really need validation and praise about it. I don't know that I'm self aware enough to know what my thing is. I think it's all the things they get terribly addicted to something. At some point you will end up in a where I've ended up and you'll have to do a four step in by guide. You'll find out what they are. You'll find everyone I've worked with in the program has about two or three fears. That are pretty much governing their entire life. It's always the same two or three people have different things to mind you know. I have a huge true. That people think I'm stupid Have a huge status fear I. I'm constantly obsessed with status ranking in every scenario man and then I have this huge financial insecurity thing growing up. I'm kind of without money. And then my mother working very hard to get money so all my things Kinda just all lead back to that. Almost when I'm getting a matter emotional with somebody like one of these. These three things right now is going off. What's happening fascinating? Yeah I think there's a lot of truth to that and I'm sure that's true of me. It's what's chilling about it. A two is those things never go away like. I assume no matter how financially secure you always feel that same. I'm lucky enough to find out that getting lots of money. You didn't solve the problem in recognizing oh it's all a mental racket. It's because we're broken forever wherever I. It's funny though because I was actually having a conversation with a very drunk friends last night. Who was saying some what you just said? He said Migrate and security. Is that people think I'm dumb and this is someone who just would've never crossed my mind. That people would think he's done like he's always struck me as a reasonably reasonably smart person and I put him in that category and Not that I don't also love Madam. Friends categorize doc. Has this profound insecurity about it for what it's worth. I also would not have put you in the category of anything but extremely smart gathered. They're not rooted in any foundation DYSLEXIC and didn't learn to read. Every you know. Knock on the door and the two people who can't learn leave and they go down with the the people who have some serious meant real. Mental challenges has yet and I can't shake it doesn't matter what degree I get. Or what ACCOLATE I. I nothing to do with intelligence by the way I have shaken a bit. You should've met me twenty years ago as a insufferable so I have made progress. Metoo I was. I was so much more in the vice grip of insecurity and I think also quit long long time so okay. It sounds like my wife similar to your mom in that. She has bottomless empathy and bottomless capacity to take on causes in. What is I Sometimes we'll say to her as it's beautiful it's lovely and also you have a bandwidth and there's certain people that you've brought into this circle and you kinda gotTa Stakeout X.. Amount of your bandwidth for those people. This is the the great existential conversation for many of my siblings. So my mom Kgo adopted all these kids and was adopting like in the seventies when it wasn't in vogue and she was getting called crazy for it and you know and then in standing by my sister and my sister had this allegation allegation of sexual abuse against Woody Allen also was like spirit and blacklisted. She's been really treated terribly unfairly. And I think is also on the other hand rightly regarded. Order does a hero in some circles. Your mom is a hero to me and I think that's correct. I mean she's a hero to me and what I took away from the altruism was my God God I don't think he'll ever have the strength to do quite this right up and my whole life give up the possibility of being totally comfortable on the level that I would have. If I didn't have uh-huh yeah she's really limited who she can be partners with tremendously isolating Mike fame already isolating so she made a lot of sacrifices says I really I know her well enough to know sincerely for the greater good I think for her. That's rooted in. She was raised Super Super Catholic. Like she's still has all of her handwritten notebooks from when she was nine and ten years old and they're all super detailed illustrations of Christ on the cross his his crown of thorns and Kerr Writing Diaries about going to Lord's and bathing in holy water and like she was way soup. Susan's all. Yeah and you know getting rapped on the knuckles by by nuns in Catholic boarding school and then she was also a hippie and she's a little fun and stuff but I think that she retained and the philosophy of that that kind of hair shirt like gotta do along the way so definitely didn't were raised with the philosophy sophy of happiness as king. It was very much like you have been given privilege. You better go out there and make the world a better place. That is all that matters and I think for a lot of my siblings wings. They did not take as I did from it. This like. Oh how inspirational is difficult. But it's great they really. I think not unfairly. I mean everyone and has their own experience of its way. I won't say all of them but some of them I think really walked away with a ton of resented that because they had a totally comfortable childhood and instead it it was chaos. And Yeah you feel like you deserve or you're entitled to apparent who's got an allotment.

I have so many jokes about Harvey Weinstein that are just brutal again. It was people laughed at it. I I mean I did. Jokes like Harvey slept so many actresses. He doesn't have the clap. He has the applause. I mean I was doing jokes like that. Of course none of us knew that these were rapes. Very important You know I stood a joke. It was like Harvey's slept so many actresses backstage West took out ad space on his taint. I remember hearing you make that choice. That was a joke that just made and everybody laughed. You know and you know with girlfriends we would literally sit around and you know a friend of mine was doing a harvey movie and we go. Bring Your kneepads ads like. That's how resigned. Everyone was too. That's how ubiquitous. This was So I do the roast that night we go to dinner. It's like me and Quentin and whatever everyone in Harvey's there I don't really remember talking to him but we were kind of sitting near each other. All I remember is that he made the table laugh so hard he was telling these big stories and cracking everybody up and it was just like so charismatic. So engaging funny smart of obviously vicious quick remembered everybody's names you know he's like Whitney. How's your Sushi like he was just really really quick? Incredible brame name and then the next day I get a call for an audition for Harvey Weinstein movie and this is a movie that I don't I I don't know if it ever existed I call for Harvey Weinstein Movie. I'm like I don't I don't have the CY decides will be there when you get there. which is very abnormal? It's very unusual. Normally fleet side sent you before but this is like I'm twenty four years old. I don't know what's going on in my arm and movie. Everyone is very stressed out. That's calling me about it. Whenever Harvey was is involved in anything people were doing? You know we gotta get to this ruining and I'm like what can I do tomorrow. And then you gotta go today and everyone's like I've never seen agents or anyone behaved like this before so I go to this place. I'm really nervous because it's I usually get to prepare before. In addition I walk into this in. Look this may be me being paranoid but I have cast things sent so I now know how casting is supposed to work. I now know the casting offices have like furniture and desks and people and sharers. I I walked into this office. I just remember going. Oh they must have just moved in but it was a totally empty room with no chairs. There wasn't a tripod and a camera set Most audition rooms have like lights. There's a piece of blue paper in the background Normally the actor gets miked. It's there's other actors in the waiting room I shop. It's just me and the casting directors like I had never met before is kind of frazzled and like forcing me to like. Read this thing and it's just filming me with a camera in her hand like I've never had an audition and before that or since and I look back and I don't know if it was a real audition or not I don't know but I went in and then later they're like all the movies probably will be not happening or they haven't gotten the sides it was something about a babysitter disturbance do paragraphs sexually. There's no no it was yeah it was a monologue of yeah. You just gave me a book to read more read worn peas. No I don't I don't remember because it was a movie that never came out and they're like oh it lost lost financing because that was the time where it was like. I wanted a job so I mean that did happen. A Lot Obviously a general but especially happened a lot around harvey in in those days. I I didn't put it together. No joke till your article came out and I was like. That probably wasn't even a real audition cause and then I did the math on it. But I don't I don't know for sure and then then the next day I wanNA say to. Maybe it was like two days later. I'm at the comedy store and performing comedy store. I go on stage and I remember the set being weird because I was wearing like sneaker wedges is and I like fell a little bit so I ended up just sort of joking around with audience the whole time I left I get a call ten minutes later from the manager of the comedy store who is no longer the manager the comedy let me start to no one's getting in trouble here currently and he was get back here Harvey Weinstein came to see you and I've known this man for ten years he was shrieking I mean this Harvey Weinstein is a man that terrified men that needed nothing from him I mean this was a gritty Brusque Comedy Club owner who had seen so you know who carries drunk people out of comedy clubs that are trying to fight them you know and he's going to get back you're right screaming at me and just picturing harvey sitting there you know having come to see me wanting to get me back I didn't go back because no joke. I was too insecure because I wasn't wearing makeup and I was like I can't let Harvey Weinstein without makeup like my vanity. Probably saved me but this just for people listening like this is a man that like hunted. People hunted people. A lot of sources used that word you know. This wasn't like A. Oh we were kind of flirting and then we both had different ideas of what happened afterwards. This is a man that went after women bang down their doors. Women are putting furniture in in front of their doors. This is a this is darth vader this is a cartoon villain it and it's such a crazy experience as a reporter to have multiple women independently described cities. You released similar. Things women have never spoken to each other We'll touch US tell the identical story and then I pushed the furniture in front of the doors. You know I know it sounds crazy as it was like in a movie but I was so scared and end the traits. You're talking about all inform each other there have peace. He was a bully. It is ultimately a story worry about the abuse of power and the fact that when we are afraid to question people at the top of whatever industry sometimes people get hurt as a result. Because because that's what unchecked power do. Yeah and you know it's just so fascinating to be in a business that makes its money from making movies about taking down villains and no one could figure out how to do it when it was happening in real life. It's like a bunch of writers and producers that are all like making movies about how to take down and I'm like just deuce th what would your character in the script you just wrote. Do about this guy. We don't even know how to write those movies. All the movies end with giant column of light now shred I wanNA people flying around in a column of Light. I mean this is a man who what was the IMF did he steal six hundred thousand dollars from AIDS so so there was this controversy on the board of Amfar is you know where funds were allegedly being redirected from the charity ready to The production of finding Neverland's Yeah Rodway version of finding Neverland. He was doing and I think his explanation was that it was designed to be joint fundraising but it was certainly it was regarded as shady. Yeah within this board and now as he's working overtime to suppress these allegations of sexual abuse against and he's also trying to get the end for far board to sign these crazy nondisclosure agreements and to kind of pay them out to get rid the problem. Yeah and eventually the House of cards does start to topple. It's so important How many things that this debunks like? And how many things that came up that that enraged me and I'm obsessed with the things people say in order to kind of get around having to confront sexual harassment and I know it's a big thing and sometimes we have to disassociate or sometimes we have to kind of you know I was talking to someone about One of these and they're like God come on. That was twenty years ago. And it's so wild I mean people say that something like listen to your basically like a lick that we. We weren't denial twenty years ago. Now we have to be in denial again. This is exhausting. Like think about what you're uh-huh there's this conversation now about how we should feel about time when it comes to serious crimes and there's all these jurisdictions saying you know what we're going to get rid of the statute of limitations when it comes to sexual assault and I think that's a pretty healthy competition and I think when you say this happened twenty years ago all I think is think of all all the people it's happened to since. Listen to what you're saying. And that is such a big part of the motivation. So many of the people who ultimately spoke this the realization Asian that whether it was just of their own volition staying quiet because they were justifiably frightened of the repercussions for them or they signed some kind of a crazy nondisclosure closure agreement it took a payout. I think for those people realizing that others were getting hurt. While they grappled with the weight of silence changed everything and now that it's been a couple years since the first New Yorker article came out. Now there's no you cannot hold onto that logic anymore. There's no one who has come forward whose life has is magically gotten amazingly better like they are really martyrs and doing this for the next generation of women to protect others that you don't come out and then all all of a sudden you get to start marvel movies. I think both things are true. It's been hard for a number of these women particularly in Hollywood who spoke in these stories and a lot of them still talk about not getting any work. They haven't gotten a single auditions since the story. I hear those kinds of accounts after the fact. But there's also also definitely a contingent that's doing great and I think that's important to note as well because the fears loomed so large and I have loved as the reporter in that equation. quesion having people come back and say you know what I feel a huge weight lifted and look. It's complicated for all of them but a lot of them have said it's better now and some of them even you know their careers have been fine or better than they've felt less paralyzed by this. They're able to work more. I think it's that I think it's just sort of the weight off their shoulders in this sort of healing moment. It's not like you know for people that think that this would be some kind of a career move or some kind of mercenaries certainly not that for attention attention if you know the women that are thriving because it is because they're healing and because they're moving past something and because the sort of evil powers that were you know smearing them are now thon on. Yeah Yup and look in those cases which I wish were more common where Someone feels like they're career has been in a good place since they did. An incredibly brave thing became a source in a contentious story I wish every industry would do more of that You know there are a couple of cases like an agent. I used to work with I'm usually get credit for this Bryan Lourd and his folks at ca called Annabella. She or a right after she did this incredibly ably difficult thing of coming forward with a very very violent. It's really important for you. Know this is someone who's when you first called said no thank you not interested. Oh Yeah and did you. What did you feel when she said that she was apologizing for not being able to help in a way that made you think that made me think that there was more there and also lead heard from so many people that she had told this story consistently over the years but ultimately when someone is completely shut down like that? There's there's nothing you can do but give them space and thank God. She then reconsidered later and and her story I think has really inspired a lot of people. It's it's particularly clearly brutal. An awful one and anyone who reads it or here's Will understand why she was reluctant to speak. At first heartbreaking embarrassing embarrassing. That's that that I think a lot of people don't understand that that it's no one's dream to go out in the world and have everybody knows something that intimate about you. What she did is is terrific? She now has to walk down the street and everybody knows this awful thing happened to her and she talked about that she went into. The decision is open. And you know I think thinks she's one of the people where the degree of trauma she went through is so severe that there are good days and bad days and none of it is easy even ongoing accents. And so it's been a wonderful thing that You know career wise. It's not easy either. And she supporting her kids but You know she did get new representation afterwards. Yeah and people in. The industry rallied around her a little bit and she's been working again at which which is also great as a consumer of movies because she's wonderful accurately. I love seeing had it also was after sexually assaulting was telling everyone she was difficult. Yeah you know. He put people in an impossible situation. He would Assault them then they tell everyone they were difficult and then make it so it was impossible to get any kind of legal action and then were forced to signing as that made them always have to look over their shoulder and be paranoid annoyed completely and I really hope that pulling back the curtain on that and understanding that that was a real thing that was happening the blacklisting and the smearing uh opens doors for a long time. I know it sounds like a movie you know. It sounds like a movie but these things were actually happening. Well and when you talk to smart people who went through it of course the first thing they say I know I'll never be able to prove this. I Remember Mira Sorvino..

"ronan farrow" Discussed on The Current

"This is all before any of this has published of course of course and at the time they were saying things like well. We're worried about tortuous interference. which is legal doctrine That refers to interfering with someone's contracts and it was really typically A. Ah something that comes into play. When you're you know a business competitor of someone and you're trying to get their employees to to break their contracts to benefit you enter the person's business It does not typically come into play in the context of legal judgments against American news outlets who are in good faith pursuing a story the and talking to sources who happen to have nondisclosure agreements because they've settled with Harvey Weinstein for instance to conceal sexual assault allegations. So this was a a case where I lay out at least fifteen secret calls that previously. NBC News at denied now they acknowledge between senior executives there Harvey Weinstein. He and his lawyers are making this argument there. Then repeating this argument to me and my producer. Eventually I mean despite you you felt like you had the sources to go with the story but would've eventually you decide to go with the New Yorker Why did you do that? The executives of NBC News told us to take the story elsewhere. And what was your reaction when they told you that Sh- absolute shock and independent. When I say us they independently told this to me and to my producer You know wouldn't it be a great vanity affair piece. Wouldn't it be a great New York magazine piece. If you want to take it somewhere else go with God and it was still frightening and uncertain because I think everyone on every side of this realized it would be a scandal handle wants. The story came out somewhere else while I was working at. NBC News You know I was on. NBC's Eras NBC News. Investigative correspondent Ronan Farrow two days before the First Harvey Weinstein in New Yorker Story broke and people did find it strange and it was very rapidly scandal but even after taking out of the door you know there was a period of weeks where I had. No Oh news organization The New Yorker hadn't yet said Yes to it. I was paying out of pocket to continue to do interviews myself and thank God. The sources were so brave and hung in there with me through these he's ups and downs and jerking them around so really all credit to them but This was a situation where the story was sent out into the cold. And it's only thanks to those sources his and to the brave journalists at the New Yorker who rescued it that we're having this conversation now. It costs such a huge sensation as possibly something that you couldn't predicted at that time. I wonder when you look at at how. NBC reacted in the days. After you published your story What did you think of their public explanation? Nation of why they didn't air it well. The reaction is fascinating to watch and in many ways mirrors. I've now done reporting of this kinds on a number of institutions am I obviously. Is You know. The publisher of the National Inquirer is a major focus of the book And you see some of the same deceptive tactics to you know I reveal in this book and this is something. NBC News is confirmed and they hired a wikipedia white washer after the story came out to remove references to the Weinstein and lower scandals from the pages of all of these NBC executives is and to this day. wikipedia is largely stripped clean of any references to the scandal And you see this fascinating pushing poll playing out in those edit edit pages on wikipedia where real editors who are just crowdsourced are saying there's corporate spin being done to these pages. Were losing the truth. It's slipping away. This is so agree grevious but you have a paid Operation to strip that information out and ultimately prevails to be clear eventually You did learn that one of the reasons. NBC Didn't go with your story had to do with with today. Show host Matt Lauer. What happened there? Well multiple sources in the book both at the national enquirer error and At NBC talk about a threat being delivered What is and and we also have? NBC's denial of that in there That senior leadership Ship knew that there was a threat to expose more of the lower information. But we do know as alluded to before is that the inquirer was already exposing more and more about Matt Lauer was intensely. Tensely focused about Matt Lauer had pulled a file of killed stories on Matt Lauer in this timeframe And more than that that. This was a company as it was arguing that its it's journalists should not report on secret sexual harassment settlements was enforcing and brokering its own identical settlements. And you know the the book okay hopefully is not just a cautionary tale about NBC News. But a cautionary tale about what happens in our profession when we are not transparent and accountable and and when we sweep serious newsworthy problems under the rug. In your book you talk about the former employees Who of NBC? Who alleged that that Matt Lauer raped her well? They weren't covering the twenty. Fourteen Sochi Olympics Matt Lauer has told variety That any acts with that woman were completely consensual. What do you think of his denial? That he forced her to have sex with him. This book is very meticulously fact. Checked and every denial. Denial is in their loud and clear. And you know I will let readers decide for themselves All I can say is that the facts are very carefully interrogated. Gated laid out there. And you know she think some persuasively Says look whatever happened before and after that night whether he thought it was flirting with him how offer he interpreted my texts where I was a junior employee. Bread for my job is the narrative she gives and you know I tried to sound as enthusiastic as possible when he wanted subsequent sexual contact. You know she says regardless of all of that. The incident in question involved her being too drunk to consent and then saying no repeatedly Louis to a sex act that he proceeds with and you know his thinking is represented very fully in the book. And you can decide if you Feel that she is correct in that assessment assessment with lower was dismissed But but NBC. News president no OPPENHEIM has called you a a disgruntled employee says the reason you're you're spreading conspiracy theories stories about why the Weinstein story was killed was because you have an ax to grind. What he say to that every story that I report against powerful interests or organizations I get this same kind of rhetoric thrown at me and that's true basically every investigative reporter who works on a tough story corey and one of the things that we've seen in recent weeks Is You know people like Chris Hayes. inside the NBC ecosystem holding their bosses says accountable unanimity. As far as I've seen in the outpouring of support from journalists they're saying this accords with our knowledge of what's happening here and we need to do more or to hold ourselves accountable The book is very much a tribute to great journalists across the board and specifically journalists NBC. News who are now demanding answers answers and so you know. I think that the response to that is very clear. In the way in which our community of fellow journalists have rallied around this book. Your your book reads like a thriller and it paints this this picture of a large network of of media business. Entertainment men men in those industries. Who who are working together to to keep Keep stories undercover. I wonder you know In in many ways the story than the picture that you paint a firms some pretty long held conspiracy theories about the media Does does that worry you at all you know at a time. When authoritarian rhetoric gets weaponized against the President United States people like Donald Trump? You know I've tried to call the press the enemy of the people. I think it's very difficult to come to the end of this book. With any opinion other than admiration for the many reporters who continue in the face of that to operate at the highest standard of truth telling and to not acquiesce to pressure from powerful interests. You A- as much as this is a book about the ways in which the media can letdown. Brave sources It is also a book about the vital importance of the work. The media does is and the need to hold ourselves to that high standard. It's also a book about about Ronan. Farrow who went through an incredible amount of stress is to pursue a story. You were lonely at times. You were isolated. You were targeted for surveillance. You say you you lost your job at NBC. So yeah you WanNa Pulitzer But but in your mind was the story worth it. Every time a source comes to me with a new piece of information that reveals not just stories about sexual violence in any kind of misconduct or malfeasance. I am so grateful as I am to the women who made it possible to tell the Weinstein Story and there is no question in my mind that I would do it all again and that it was the least east that I could have and should have done and I try to be forthright. You know when I talk about those difficult moments About you know it being a moment where I was really tired tired and stressed but also the tip of the iceberg in terms of how bad it could have gotten for sources and for other journalists. And you know just one in part of this massive machine and how it affects lots of lives. I try to tell it in a way where it is Not so much as me. But revealing about the larger patterns patterns of obstacles people go up against so so the answer is absolutely not. I've never had a moment where I felt that it wasn't worth telling these stories. Ronan Farrow. Thank you for telling your story today with us. Thank you so much for your time. Ronan Farrow spoke with Duncan mccue. In October he is a contributing writer. He is a contributing beating writer for the New York magazine and his new book is called catch and kill lies. Spies conspiracy to protect predators. The CBC has not corroborated the reporting Ronan Farrow's book we did ask NBC for comment but did not hear back in a memo to staff NBC News. President Noah Oppenheim wrote quote. We have no secrets and nothing to hide. There is no evidence of any reports of Matt Lauer's misconduct before his firing no settlements. No hush money no way we. We have found that. NBC's current leadership could have been aware of his misdeeds in the past. Matt Lauer issued a public letter through his lawyer in which he asserts quote vote in a new book. It is alleged that an extramarital but consensual sexual encounter. I have previously admitted. Having was in fact an assault it is categorically gorky false ignores the facts and defies common sense a company spokesperson for the National Enquirers parent company issued a statement. The reads in part quote. Mr Pharaohs Narrative is driven by unsubstantiated allegations from questionable sources. And while these stories may be dramatic. They are completely untrue.

'America's Got Talent' Has Problems

"Has another Pr Mess at minimum and possibly Sibley more than a PR mess on its hands. This is not NBC News. We've talked about that a lot you know. Obviously there's Ronan Farrow's book. Why didn't they report the Harvey Weinstein Story What happened with Matt Lauer. Did they cover up for him. That has been a whole mess in and of itself But this is now NBC. The broadcast network. America's got talent. They did not pick up Gabrielle Union. For a second season she was there for only one season She was a judge and that has led to reporting following a a tweet by her or a number of tweets by her husband. dwayne Wade reporting the about a culture that in allegedly was insensitive at minimum minorities Racist if you WANNA take it. That far that she had been told repeatedly for example that some of her hairstyles were two black black. Allegedly that She had reported an offensive joke by a guest. Jay Leno to human resources but the higher ups would not We're actually formerly report it. There was an allegation published in one report that there was a ten year old black rapper that she thought had talent and she was advised not to support this child but to support white dancers because supposedly what was said was we need me. Need people that America ARACA can get behind. which would lead to a question about their definition of America but this has now turned into a flap? NBC is responding. Yeah I mean they have had to respond and they had Gabrielle Union in her representatives into a what was described as a five hour meeting with investigators to discuss this SAG Astra has said they are going to look into this. Because she's a member of that organization and you know they've got a real problem because any of these things are true and she was dismissed Complaining about it that's retaliatory. Normally in that situation you know a check is written and A settlement is made in this case. I would suspect that she would want more than money that she would want. Meaningful steps taken. Now this doesn't just involve a NBC. It involves fremantle the company that produces the show and psycho which is Simon Simon Cowles company and she among her allegations are that Simon callow made this environment. Literally unpleasant with cigarette smoke constantly smoking with nope doors on the dressing dressing rooms so you could not escape the smoke and I have to say you know you say well you know deal with it but the fact is for me. That kind of smokey environment environment literally makes me queasy and would be a problem and it's obviously unhealthy and it's obviously against the rules. But this is what happens when you have someone like Simon Cowl. Who is you know has got this huge amount of power. Yeah He created the show and he stars on it. I mean this is a textbook example if these allegations are true of the kind of coddling of talent that networks are notorious for and allowing people to get away with certain behaviors that the average person doesn't get away with and you know we think that in this time's up in metoo era that a lot of this behavior is being clamped down on but if this is true and cows being allowed to just be a colossal jerk worked to everybody then that's not okay. I'm going to quote the former. America's got talent judge Howard. Stern who said CAL sets it up so that men stay no matter how ugly they are no matter how old no matter how fat. I'm paraphrasing slightly. No matter how talentless then he says why don't they change Simon. This is the ultimate example of boy's club and I would just note math that. NBC Says It's going to investigate but in the news division. They investigated themselves and that has been a huge issue going that nobody has forgotten about I.. I think who's paying any attention and so it's going to be more of that. I don't think this problem is going to be resolved. Yeah it's the same question of whether they get an outside investigator or whether they do it internally it says we're on the same merry go round round and round. Thank you thank you. That's Matt Bellamy editorial director of the Hollywood reporter. He joins me this Monday at one. Thirty on the business. I'm Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood

"KCRW sponsors include LEICA presenting missing link the latest animated film from the studio behind core align and Kubo it's an adventure about finding your true identity bloom who the alleged women's rights lawyer who went to work for Harvey to discredit people like rose McGowan she is saying this is a diabolical Sousse silence assault victims she saying that they they engaged in racketeering violations of the Federal Wiretap Act etc etc and I have to say there's a piece of this litigation that involves someone I wrote about Roy price who was the head of Amazon studios and I feel like it's a real window into the backscratching then a can occur in a roy price was accused in our story of misconduct and then when we published he was he was excused from that job that the same day and he had harvey had quite a relationship and rose McGowan alleges that that Roy price was part of this attempt to shut her down me and she this this one piece of Roy Price in this litigation is a window into how guys help each other out yes the allegations the lawsuit and this is piggybacking on some of the stuff that's in Ronan Farrow's book catch and kill is that Roy price optioned rose McGowan runs screenplay and for reasons that we don't quite now and then when he was discussing the project with rose abruptly she killed it and the implication is that Harvey Weinstein was actually pulling the strings here and whether Roy Price was trying to option the project Steve Harvey Weinstein was mentioned in it or if this was an effort to essentially buy her off in a manner in which Lisa Bloom apparently her for I introduction to Harvey Weinstein was when he optioned her book and said we're GONNA develop this for television and Lo and behold Lisa Bloom is then representing Weinstein and all of a sudden he had one of the prominent women's advocate attorneys on his side this is a tactic that seems to be a a a way for powerful people in Hollywood like Harvey Weinstein Roy Price to essentially buy out adverse party company desperately needed at that point because they were having financial problems she says she went to Roy Price and said this guy raped me and Roy price responded by saying no and that Harvey basically put Roy up to buying her thing to to find out what was in it if there is anything negative about him and meanwhile I will note that Roy price had tried to get his own girlfriend a deal a writer without any significant credentials at all at Amazon was told internally forget it that will never happen here it's going to be bad look for you and Harvey gave her a deal and when we reported this and asked about it the Weinstein Official Response was Oh yes we've been you know not done anything of great note at that point so again this is how it works yeah it's all funny until you realize this is part of a way ebb of efforts to silence potential accusers and it goes much deeper than I think anyone thought until these allegations have come out in the book and now the
