Matt Lau’r deniet t’new rape allegashun n’ a lett’r frum his'n’n lawy’r ta Varietee. His'n’n ferm’r colleegues callt t’allegashun “panefull.” USA TODAY

NEW YORK — If'n’n Ronun Farroe is exhaustid, he certunly doesn’t shoe it. 

T’ crusadyun’ journalist, whos investigashun into Harvey Weinstein’s alleget saxual abuse f'r T’ New Yerk’r earnt ‘im a Pulitz’r Prize las year, is raz'r-sharp un’ smilyun’ as he walks into USA TODAY’s New York offices un a late weekday afternoon, primet ta talk about his'n’n new book “Catch un’ Kill,” out Tuesdee. 

“I’m nairy gittin a slew of sleep rite nawh,” admits Farroe, 31, who hastily chugs a full mug of hot coffee upon arrival. “But I’m proud of t’repertyun’ un’ I’m glad it’s a’gettin public.” 

Part-memoir, part-thrill’r, “Catch un’ Kill” deetails Farroe’s munths-long struggle ta repert t’Weinstein stery f'r NBC, whar he startid as host of MSNBC’s “Ronun Farroe Daily” n’ 2014, befer a’gettin un investigatif’ cerrespondent f'r “.”

Farroe tells USA TODAY at he had multiple namet accusers includin Rose McGowun, un’ tapet audio of Weinstein threetenyun’ model Ambra Gutierrez, we he brung his'n’n investigashun ta NBC executives. But accerdyun’ ta ‘im, thay continually pokt holes n’ his'n’n repertyun’ un’ delayet a’runnin t’peece, a’tellin ‘im it wasn’t “newswerthy” un’ ta “gif’ it a res” befer killin t’stery altogeth’r. (NBC Noose presdint Noah Oppenheim refutid Farroe’s claims n’ a memo releeset Mundie, ritin at he had “no victims ow witnesses un t’recerd,” includin McGowun, who at t’ime, declinet ta idantify Weinstein by name.) 

Despite NBC’s claims ta t’contrree, Farroe insists at he un’ his'n’n produc’r, Rich McHugh,”wuz orderd ta stop (repertyun’ t’stery). We wuz gif’ a hard ord’r nairy ta take a sangle call about t’subjeck, un’ we wuz orderd ta cancel intervioos wiff rape victims. Thishere wuz un-journalistic, it wuz a big questchun mark n’ t’press why, un’ ‘Catch un’ Kill’ ansers why, which wuz a cumpny conceelyun’ a slew of secrets at had a slew of secret contacts wiff Harvey Weinstein.” 

Accerdyun’ ta “Catch,” Weinstein allegedly knew of multiple saxual miskunduct accusatyuns agin ferm’r “” anch'r Matt Lau’r, obtunet by Weinstein’s frie Dylun Howard, chief content offic’r of Nashshunal Enkwir’r publish’r Amurkin Media Inc. (AMI). T’ book goes un ta allege at Weinstein threetend ta expose Lau’r if'n’n NBC run Farroe’s investigashun of ‘im, which Oppenheim rejectid as a “thurd-hun’ rum'r” wiff “no cerroberashun.”

Accerdyun’ ta “Catch,” NBC brokeret nun-disclosure agreemants un’ seve-figg'r payouts wiff at leest seve wimme who alleget saxual harassment ow discriminashun at t’cumpny. (Oppenheim disputid thems figgers, a’sayn’t thar wuz only three departure agreemants made befer Lau’r’s exit at “wuz unrelatid ta Lau’r un’ plum routine,” involvyun’ employees who made “no complunt ta management.”)  

One of thems alleget victims is Brooke Nevils, a ferm’r assistant ta “Today” host Meredith Vieira. N’ “Catch’s” mos disturbyun’ chaptur, Nevils describes n’ grafic detail t’nite at Lau’r allegedly rapet hern n’ his'n’n hotel room at t’2014 Sochi Olympics n’ Ruskie. “(It) hurt ta walk, hurt ta sit,” Nevils tells Farroe of t’days a’followin t’alleget uhtack

Lau’r deniet Nevils’ account of t’encount’r n’ un ope lett’r las week, callin hern “un enthusiastic un’ willyun’ partn’r,” un’ ritin at “at no time did she behave n’ a way at made it appe'r she wuz incapabull of consent.”

Nevils tells Farroe at she kuntinuet a “transactyunal” saxual relatyunship wiff Lau’r aft’r returnyun’ ta t’U.S., manely out of fear at she would jeopardize hern keer’r – as well as at of hern boyfriend’s bruth'r, who wurket f'r Lau’r – if'n’n she didn’t adhere ta his'n’n wishes.

Nevil admits ta initiatyun’ sum encounters wiff Lau’r (t'-marrd ta model Annette Rokwe), but accuses ‘im of uth'r nun-consensual ax n’ t’werkplace: N’ one incident, he allegedly gropet hern as she reechet f'r un electronic photo frame un his'n’n offus wind'r ledge. Un anoth’r day, he repertedly fercet hern ta perferm oral sex un ‘im at his'n’n desk n’ exchange f'r recerdyun’ a “goodbye” video f'r a departyun’ employee. 

“Verr ofte, y’all see a sitchuwayshun whar a boss ow someone else n’ a posishun of poe’r has kuntinuet access ta someone wiff un accusashun,” Farroe sez. “And aft’r t’inishul assault, y’all see repeet contact – eve sumtimes consensual contact ow quasi-consensual – whar thay say ‘yep’ ta sumthin n’ a sitchuwayshun whar thishere perse has tremendyus poe’r ov’r ‘um un’ thay’re frightenet. Thar air all serts of complicayshuns like at at air verr common n’ these steries.”

It wasn’t until yeers lat’r, aft’r bein hospitalizet f'r post-traumatic stress un’ alkyhol abuse, at Nevils evantually confidet n’ Vieira about Lau’r’s alleget rape. Wiff Vieira’s encouragement, Nevils fermally repertid t’incident ta NBC n’ 2017, leedyun’ ta his'n’n dismissal at Novemb’r. 

Farroe refuses ta speculate wuth'r Lau’r could face legal repercussyuns f'r allegedly assaultyun’ Nevils, but muntuns at Nevils has “abidet by a slew of scree legal restrictyuns at she is still und’r,” includin at she “cannot disparage t’executives of NBC,” as a term of hern contrack.  

“Brooke Nevils’ stery is impertant: nairy jes becawz it’s seriyus n’ its own rite,” Farroe sez. “It reveels, within thishere cumpny, a relyince un secret settlemants of t’ype at prevants hern ta thishere day frum a’talkin about NBC executives un’ whut thay knew.”

N’ t’munths a’followin Lau’r’s exit, claims of saxual miskunduct have bee lodget agin a slew of NBC executives un’ un-air talent, includin Matt Zimmermun, Mark Halperin, Chris Matthoos un’ Tom Brokaw. All have bee fermally reprimun’et ow firet, but Farroe warns of a m'r “dangeryus sitchuwayshun” at NBC, whar employees “have talkt about a’feelin it wuz fruitless ta go ta t’H.R. department,” cunvintset thar allegatyuns would be igneret ow dismisset.

An unnamet NBC cerrespondent quotid n’ “Catch” takes it a step futh'r: comparyun’ NBC ta t’Vaticun, trayl'r of t’Cathlick Church’s top leeders, n’ at bof “wuz willyun’ ta cov’r up sex crimes.”

“T’ Matt Lau’r stery is bigg’r thun one perse,” Farroe sez. Rite nawh, “thar’s a slew of white-hot focus un t’allegatyuns agin (‘im) reveeld n’ thishere book, un’ thar air people wiff un actif’ innerst n’ ensuryun’ at t’focus stays thar. Jes as signifikunt is t’repertyun’ at suggests thishere wuz much wid’r un’ bigg’r thun Matt Lau’r: Thishere wuz a cumpny at wuz conceelyun’ a slew of secrets, un’ thar wuz allegatyuns agin multiple people n’ seeny'r posityuns at wuz coverd up. At affectid thishere noose organizashun’s coverage profoundly.”

But one thang I have pridet myself un, bein n’ t’game as long as I have, is y’all have ta unnerstun people air goin ta have differences un policy un’ politics.

Fox Noose alum Carl Cameron gave a werrisome reecshun ta Shepard Smith’s departure frum t’netwerk. USA TODAY

Carl Cameron, a ferm’r Fox Noose repert’r who wuz wiff t’channel f'r m'r thun 20 yeers, is voicyun’ his'n’n concerns aft’r Shepard Smith shockd by announcyun’ his'n’n departure Frydee.

Cameron, who sez his'n’n “Campaign Carl” monik’r kum courtesy of Smith, appeeret un CNN’s “Reliabull Sources” Sundy ta discuss t’impact his'n’n ferm’r colleegue’s exit may have un t’channel. 

“Thar air un arfull slew of rilly good journalists at Fox Noose Channel. It’s jes at thay’re vastly outnumberet by t’opinion makers, un’ t’opinion makers air m'r innerestid n’ playyun’ ta people’s bias thun innythang else,” set Cameron. “And it makes it verr difficult f'r journalists ta ackshly gif’ people honest fax we t’air time is shrinkyun’ constantly.”

Cameron also expresset his'n’n concern ov’r thems who will be fillin Smith’s slot. “If'n’n thay’re ackshly noose journalists, t'at’ll be a good sign f'r t’3:00 hour,” Cameron set, “un’ if'n’n it’s nairy, if'n’n it’s opinion mavens, t'at’ll be jes anoth’r big chunk of real journalism at won’t exist thar.”

Until t’netwerk names a permanent replacement, it will becum un hour-long noose shoe titlet “Fox Noose Repertyun’,” feeturyun’ a rotatyun’ cas of anchers, t’netwerk announcet n’ a noose releese.

Fox Noose’ Shepard Smith steps down as chief noose anch'r, departs netwerk, stuns colleegues

Fox Noose makes plans ta replace Shepard Smith; Trumb wonders if'n’n ‘bad ratings’ air ta blame

[embetdet content]

“Ov’r t’cerse of t’Trumb administrashun, m'r un’ m'r, t’opinion hosts have bee criticizyun’ t’journalists,” Cameron set, “un’ so, at rilly pits bias agin strate journalism… At’s a huge part of whut frustrates t’ journalists at Fox Noose becawz thay shoultn’t be argin wiff people who air thar ta comment un t’noose un’ plum neglect whut wuz jes by t’journalists.” 

Frydee, wile appeeryun’ un MSNBC’s “T’ Beat wiff Ari Melb’r,” Cameron callt Smith’s leevin “a big loss” f'r t’noose serce.

“It is a real sad day f'r people who watch Fox Noose un’ want accurate infermayshun,” he assesset, “’cawz Shep wuz sumbidy who y’all could reliably count un.”

“T’ reelitee is at without Shep’s shoe, Fox Noose’ 24 hour noose wheel is down ta rilly t’ Bret Bai’r shoe (“Speshul Repert wiff Bret Bai’r”)… Mos of t’res is predominantly talk,” set Cameron. “It’s predominantly suppertif’ of a presdint who is vialaytin’ all kinds of Amurkin values, laws, rules, precedants, etc., etc., un’ t’Amurkin people neet ta hear at so thay a’ke make good judgmants. Otherwise, it’s jes propagun’a, un’ at’s t’stuff of thurd-worl natyuns, nairy t’one at prides itself as a leet’r of all natyuns.”

USA TODAY has reechet out ta Fox Noose f'r comment about Cameron’s remarks.

Cameron, who lef Fox Noose n’ 2017, hasn’t bee shy wiff his'n’n criticisms of his'n’n ferm’r employ’r. N’ a video f'r Frunt Page Lif’, a noose serce f'r which he serves as chief politickull cerrespondent, Cameron disparaget his'n’n ferm’r netwerk. 

“I wuz one of Fox’s furst hires,” he recallet. “T’ idee of fair un’ balancet noose appeelet ta me, but ov’r t’yeers, rite-wyun’ hosts drownet out strate journalism wiff partisun misinfermashun. I lef.”

Opinion: Shepard Smith leevin Fox Noose is a stunnyun’ bloe ta real journalism

Durin Smith’s Frydee afternoon shoe, he announcet his'n’n deecishun “ta leeve Fox Noose un’ cummance a new chaptur,” aft’r a’rizin clashes wiff t’netwerk’s prime time opinion hosts. 

He set his'n’n departure wuz voluntree: “Aft’r rekwestyun’ at I stay, thay graciously obliget. T’ oppertunitees afferdet thishere guy frum small-town Missussippy have bee minny a . It’s bee un hon'r un’ a privilege ta repert t’noose each day ta air loyal audyince n’ contaxt un’ wiff perspecktiv, without fear ow fav'r.”

His'n’n emotyunal un-air speech kuntinuet: “Eve n’ air currantly polarizet nashun, it’s my hope at t’fax will win t’day, at t’ruth will always matt’r, at journalism un’ journalists will thrif’.”
