Perhaps the least surprising aspect of The New Yorker magazine's story on abuse allegations against New York's attorney general last week was Ronan Farrow's name on it as one of the authors.Print stories led to television work, where Farrow's articulateness and good looks didn't hurt.Farrow remained at NBC News as a reporter and began working on the Weinstein story.How the Weinstein story wound up at The New Yorker and not on NBC is a well-publicized, if not fully understood story. NBC said that after much work, Farrow's story still wasn't ready for air. Farrow was introduced to Remnick by Ken Auletta, the veteran New Yorker writer who previously tried to crack the Weinstein story and had talked to Farrow about that experience. Although NBC has defended itself and declined to further discuss it for this story, the damaging impression that it missed a big story has stuck.Farrow's work on Weinstein has clearly helped him with other stories. Farrow has signed with HBO to make a series of documentaries. He credited freedom given by MSNBC to tell in-depth stories for inspiring the HBO deal.
