"I am against abuse of power, whether it be Trump, Clinton, HW, @NBC", she wrote, also referring to former NBC host Matt Lauer, who lost his job due to sexual assault allegations.

"Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators" hits bookstores Tuesday.

NBC News President Noah Oppenheim responded to the new allegations: "By her own account, Curry relayed no specific complaint, nor did she say Lauer " s "problem' regarded any specific workplace misconduct..."

"Farrow alleges there were employees who reported Lauer's behavior prior to November of 2017 and were paid settlements to silence them".

As we reported, the Pulitzer Prize victor accused the company of covering up sexual misconduct allegations made against disgraced anchor Matt Lauer for years, calling NBC News a "company with a lot of secrets" in his new book Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies, and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators.

For its part, NBC has said a pressure campaign by Weinstein had nothing to do with the network's decision not to run Farrow's reporting on the former Hollywood mogul.

MSNBC's Chris Hayes took a moment tonight to address the elephant in the room: the scandal now facing NBC amid serious allegations in Ronan Farrow's new book.

Ahead of the book's release, reports emerged claiming Hillary and her husband, former US president Bill Clinton, were concerned the investigation would bring unsavoury affiliations to light - with McGowan, who accused the former Miramax boss of raping her at the 1997 Sundance Film Festival, disgusted by the claims.

"Look, this book is a extraordinarily, meticulously fact-checked work of investigative journalism. It is built on a series of distortions, confused timelines, and outright inaccuracies".

Merrill denied Farrow's claims, suggesting that Weinstein may have exaggerated his amount of leverage over the Clinton family.

Farrow said his sister's story "inspired me and helped me understand". According to Farrow, Weinstein knew about Lauer's alleged behavior and said that he could reveal it.

Now, Farrow writes that Today's former entertainment booker Melissa Lonner alleged back in 2010 that Lauer exposed himself to her in his office and also propositioned her. "There is no evidence of any reports of Lauer's misconduct before his firing, no settlements, no 'hush money" - no way we have found that NBC's current leadership could have been aware of his misdeeds in the past.
