Fox host calls for NBC News chief to resign over Weinstein story

Fox host calls for NBC News chief to resign over Weinstein story”

Weinstein faces multiple allegations of sexual abuse and harassment from some of the biggest names in Hollywood.

It was the same day NBC came under withering attack from President Donald Trump for a story the network DID report, about whether the president sought in a summer meeting to greatly increase the nation's nuclear stockpile.

It's not as though Farrow hit a wall or NBC expended its resources.

After playing highlights from Farrow's appearance on MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show" earlier this week, Carlson went on to point out Oppenheim had not been upfront about any possible business relationship he had with Weinstein, which may have impacted his editorial decisionmaking regarding the story.

Tucker Carlson said NBC News president Noah Oppenheim should resign or be fired immediately for punting on reporting Ronan Farrow's explosive story on Harvey Weinstein.

"News executives are not allowed to tell lies", he said.

"So let's be clear - NBC is lying", Carlson said.

"Noah Oppenheim ought to resign immediately, and if he doesn't, he ought to be fired immediately by NBC's parent company Comcast", Carlson said (video below). Oppenheim says, quote 'Farrow's story was not the story we were looking at when we made our judgment.' Yet another lie.

Farrow said that he had personally been threatened with a lawsuit by Weinstein.

This week's Alternative Facts discussed disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, whose sexual predations were allegedly suppressed by NBC News.

He said Oppenheim is also a Hollywood screenwriter with deep ties to the Democratic Party and Hollywood establishments. "When they don't, you know they're corrupt, and that's exactly what NBC News is", the Fox News host continued. They ought to answer straight-forward questions straight-forwardly. "We are not always going to be the ones that get it to the finish line, but I think more often than not, we will be".

This is not the first time NBC News has faced backlash for its handling of a story regarding sexual assault.
