Superstar chef Anthony Bourdain helped get Ronan Farrow‘s Harvey Weinstein expose out for public consumption, a brand new e book claims.
Farrow was initially reporting the story for NBC, however the community derailed its publication — so Bourdain urged The New Yorker to run the story, Farrow writes in his new tome “Catch and Kill.”
The late chef had been relationship actress Asia Argento, who instructed Farrow that Weinstein sexually assaulted her.
Bourdain — who had been “supportive of Argento talking” — dropped a line to journal editor David Remnick, telling him that Weinstein’s conduct was sickening and that “everybody” had recognized about the allegations for too lengthy.
“I'm not a non secular man,” Bourdain wrote. “However I pray you will have the energy to run this story.”
NBC has denied the journalist’s characterization of the occasions, claiming that his reporting didn’t meet its broadcast requirements requirements.
The story in the end helped deliver down Weinstein and gained a Pulitzer Prize for service journalism.
