Ronan Farrow's done pissed off the peacock.

Page Six reports that a civil war is brewing at NBC after it was claimed that the 30-year-old journalist has been banned by NBC News' exec Andy Lack.

The chatter began when Farrow was suddenly bumped from his appearance on Rachel Maddow's MSNBC show on Friday, where he was set to discuss his story on Donald Trump's alleged affair with former Playboy model Karen McDougal.

Insiders say this decision was made by Lack, still salty over Farrow saying that NBC killed his Harvey Weinstein exposé in late 2017.

Mia Farrow's son was on Maddow in October when he was asked why NBC didn't release the story, as he was a freelance journalist for the network at the time. He responded by saying:

Ann Curry FINALLY Opens Up About Her Today Exit: 'It Hurt Like Hell'

Filed under: TV NewsMatt LauerControversy

Ann Curry gets the last word…

After famously leaving Today in 2012, the journalist inadvertently made headlines in November 2017 when her former co-anchor Matt Lauer was fired from NBC News for allegedly engaging in "inappropriate sexual behavior."

At the time, the 61-year-old was "still really processing" the news, as a source claimed she was not "relishing" in Lauer's misery. In case you forgot, Curry was rumored to be fired due to her lack of "chemistry" with the now-disgraced TV personality.

matt lauer reacts hoda kotb today promotion

Matt Lauer has officially supported NBC News' decision to tap Hoda Kotb as his permanent replacement.

Well, it's the least he could do after he inflicted scandal onto the whole Today family with his controversial ousting. You know we're right.

In case you forgot, following Matt's firing for "inappropriate sexual behavior" in the workplace, Kotb was pulled from the 10 o'clock hour in order to create a temporary fix. But the position is no longer a temporary one, as the seasoned TV personality will join Savannah Guthrie permanently at 7 a.m. from now on. (Don't worry, Hoda will still be sippin' wine with Kathie Lee Gifford later in the day.)

In regards to how Lauer reacted to Hoda's promotion, the 53-year-old spilled to E! News:

Dustin Hoffman Accusers Further Detail The Sexual Misconduct The A-Lister Allegedly Inflicted On Them

dustin hoffman accusers sit down nbc news

Dustin Hoffman is "abusive" and "a bully." Or, at least, that's what the three women who've accused the Rain Man actor of sexual misconduct believe.

As was previously teased, three of the five women who've accused the A-lister of sexual harassment or assault, sat down with Cynthia McFadden for an interview on NBC Nightly News With Lester Holt. The sit down, which featured Anna Graham Hunter, Cori Thomas, and Kathryn Rossetter, aired on Monday.

Their allegations are particularly troubling as two of the women were minors at the time of the alleged misconduct, and another was subjected to unwanted touching by Dustin during months on Broadway. In fact, Rossetter (who starred in Death of a Salesman with Hoffman) vehemently stated that the actor was "abusive" and "a bully." Specifically, Dustin would allegedly put his hand on her thigh every night before the show and would also grope her breasts when they would pose for photos.

ex today staffer details matt lauer affair

More of Matt Lauer's dirty laundry is being outed.

As you surely know, amid the newsman's ousting from NBC News for his "inappropriate sexual behavior" in the workplace, former Today show production assistant Addie Collins Zinone revealed that she had a month long affair with Lauer back in 2000. While she already shared her story with Variety, Addie stopped by Megyn Kelly's hour of Today to discuss her liaison with the 59-year-old journalist.

Although the affair between Matt and Addie was consensual, Zinone told Megyn that the power dynamic between them ultimately made her regret the brief relationship — especially since she was only 24 at the time. Not to mention, Lauer was already married to

no title

No matter what, alleged victims have the right to remain anonymous…

As we reported on November 29, NBC News announced they terminated Matt Lauer for "inappropriate sexual behavior" regarding an alleged incident that began at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

To this day, the identity of Lauer's accuser has not been revealed… and that's exactly how she wants it.

On Friday, the alleged victim's lawyer Ari Wilkenfeld spoke to NBC News where he says his client is "terrified" she will be outed.

"My client is terrified, and she does live in constant fear that people are going to track her down and figure out who she is… She feels badly for the many other women who are suspected of being her—who are also being hounded and harassed."

When the unnamed woman made her claims to NBC, she wanted the company to "do the right thing," and to keep her identity confidential. However, Wilkenfeld says the network hasn't been doing a good job with the latter.

When the time really comes for her moment, Katie Couric is probably going to have quite a bit to say.

For now, though, she's just barely breaking the silence on Matt Lauer and the fallout from the extensive and disturbing sexual misconduct allegations against him.
