NBC: WE KILLED OFF THAT PULITZER PRIZE-WINNING HARVEY WEINSTEIN STORY IN A TOTALLY LEGIT MANNER, YOU KNOW.

Regardless of motive, [the statement by Emily Nestor, one of Weinstein’s accusers] flat-out contradicts [NBC News chairman Andrew] Lack’s argument. Even one on-the-record testimony from a Weinstein insider should have made this an easy journalistic decision. Shutting it down with Nestor on board certainly makes McHugh’s accusation of the story being killed at “the very highest levels at NBC” more believable than Lack’s belated defense of NBC’s actions. And at any rate, the results speak for themselves. Farrow and his team at The New Yorker got a Pulitzer and touched off a major social movement, while NBC News had to fire Lauer and offer explanations for why they let the story get away. This story doesn’t seem any more convincing than those preceding it.

Which is why Chuck Todd is going all-in attacking Fox News as the anti-Christ to deflect from the chaos in NBC’s upper management.
