Ronan Farrow’s reporting on Harvey Weinstein helped inspire a cultural reckoning—and won him the Pulitzer Prize. So why did NBC try to kill the biggest story of the year? On this episode of Next Question, Katie sits down with Ronan to discuss his new book Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies, and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators—a jaw-dropping account of the extreme measures NBC News and Harvey Weinstein took to keep the producer’s history of sexual violence hidden. From the Russian spies who stalked him to Weinstein’s attempts to use Matt Lauer as leverage, Ronan and Katie talk about the campaign to silence both the press and the victims, the power structures that continue to protect abusers to this day, and where the #MeToo movement goes from here—not just in media, but in workplaces everywhere.
