Matt Lauer responds to rape allegations in Ronan Farrow’s book


Matt Lauer wrote an editorial responding to Ronan Farrow’s book “Catch and Kill,” which details the allegations of sexual misconduct against him. The editorial of the former co-presenter of “Today” was published on Mediaite two days after the New York Times published a column by Ben Smith entitled “Is Ronan Farrow too good to be true? “

Lauer’s editorial, “Why Ronan Farrow Is Too Good To Be True” echoes criticism in Smith’s column, which raised questions about Farrow’s reporting practices.

Farrow’s book came out in 2019, two years later Lauer was fired from NBC according to what he called “admitting to having a consensual but inappropriate relationship with a co-worker”. While Lauer maintains that the relationship was consensual, his accuser, Brooke Nevils, later said to Farrow that Lauer raped her. Details of his charges were made public in “Catch and Kill”.
