If you have been living in a cave, or under a rock then let me tell you a little about Mr Farrow, as per our good friend Wikipedia…
Satchel Ronan O’Sullivan Farrow (born December 19, 1987) is an American journalist. Farrow is the son of actress Mia Farrow and filmmaker Woody Allen.
In late 2017, Farrow’s articles in The New Yorker helped uncover the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse allegations. For this reporting, The New Yorker won the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service, sharing the award with The New York Times. His subsequent investigations exposed similar allegations against Eric Schneiderman and Les Moonves, which led to the resignations of both in 2018. Farrow also investigated the concealment by the M.I.T. Media Lab of its involvement with Jeffrey Epstein, leading to the resignation of the director of the Media Lab, Joi Ito, and an internal investigation by M.I.T.
In other words, he’s a damn HERO!!!
After going down the Ronan rabbit hole for a while and watching many interviews with him, he seems a very well spoken, very intelligent and very clever man, he dots his I’s and crosses his T’s, and is extremely conscientious.
This is the story of how a young man, armed with morals and a backbone the size and strength of a T-Rex, managed to bring down the raping, abusing, disgusting pig of a man, that we all know by another name, Harvey Weinstein.
Farrow is a man, that kept everyone’s secrets, and never divulged information to anyone if they had asked him not to.
It started with Rose Mcgowan (another hero) and that ball kept rolling, he was pretty much stopped at every turn, including from his own company who had originally asked him to report about this in the first place!
He had so much information that it was near on impossible to disprove, yet Weinstein was still able to pay off companies, and people FOR YEARS!!!
This book was fascinating, as well as angering, how these people manage to get so ‘God Like’ that they can do damn near whatever they want, or fear the consequences.
Narrated by Mr Farrow himself, who if he ever find himself out of the journalism field, could easily make a career out of narrating, he was AMAZING!
What is also so special about the audiobook, is that, not only do you have the author narrating his own words, he has managed to put in an audio-clip of Weinstein, trying to talk a young actress into his hotel room, and It. Is. Chilling!!
I would love to say that the disgusting rapist is in jail and off of the streets, but unfortunately as you may have seen this week, he is still wandering around, happy as Larry, being invited to events, but people are not so happy about this.
The fact that HW is still surrounded by women is mind blowing.
Just because you are friends with a shark, don’t mean that it won’t bite you one day!
About the Book
In a dramatic account of violence and espionage, Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter Ronan Farrow exposes serial abusers and a cabal of powerful interests hell-bent on covering up the truth, at any cost.
In 2017, a routine network television investigation led Ronan Farrow to a story only whispered about: one of Hollywood’s most powerful producers was a predator, protected by fear, wealth, and a conspiracy of silence. As Farrow drew closer to the truth, shadowy operatives, from high-priced lawyers to elite war-hardened spies, mounted a secret campaign of intimidation, threatening his career, following his every move, and weaponizing an account of abuse in his own family.
All the while, Farrow and his producer faced a degree of resistance they could not explain — until now. And a trail of clues revealed corruption and cover-ups from Hollywood to Washington and beyond.
This is the untold story of the exotic tactics of surveillance and intimidation deployed by wealthy and connected men to threaten journalists, evade accountability, and silence victims of abuse. And it’s the story of the women who risked everything to expose the truth and spark a global movement.
Both a spy thriller and a meticulous work of investigative journalism, Catch and Kill breaks devastating new stories about the rampant abuse of power and sheds far-reaching light on investigations that shook our culture.
