it was amazing

@RonanFarrow meticulously exposes the rooms of sexual power, retribution and cover up in Hollywood, politics and the news room, giving voice to the many women horrifically abused. The majority deals with media titan Harvey Weinstein but before he’s finished his reporting nets Trump and Matt Lauer among others. However, beyond the assaults which are disturbing enough, are the lengths the networks, specially NBC would go to bury the story to protect the abusers. Farrow was continually discouraged from pursuing the Weinstein case despite women willing to appear on camera and having thoroughly vetted sources who corroborated many of the allegations. I vacillated between anger, sadness and frustration while listening to this. And beyond the amazing reporting, additional props to Farrow for going the distance and even doing some pretty bang up impressions of all the various players.
