Anthony Bourdain helped expose Harvey Weinstein before his untimely death

Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain was instrumental in helping Ronan Farrow expose serial rapist Harvey Weinstein, a new book claims.

Farrow was initially investigating the story for NBC, but the network tried to prevent it from going public, so Bourdain urged The New Yorker to run the story, Farrow claims in his new book “Catch and Kill.”

[Ronan Farrow Claims Hillary Clinton Pressured Him To Drop Weinstein Story] reports: The late chef had been dating actress Asia Argento, who told Farrow that Weinstein sexually assaulted her.

Bourdain — who had been “supportive of Argento speaking” — dropped a line to magazine editor David Remnick, telling him that Weinstein’s behavior was sickening and that “everyone” had known about the allegations for too long.

“I am not a religious man,” Bourdain wrote. “But I pray you have the strength to run this story.”

NBC has denied the journalist’s characterization of the events, claiming that his reporting didn’t meet its broadcast standards standards.

The story ultimately helped bring down Weinstein and won a Pulitzer Prize for service journalism.


  1. Anyone who makes gains in the high places have all paid a big cost, “do as we say or the world hears about your sins,” so your thoughts?

  2. Pelosi is “SHOWING HER TRUE COLORS” as a slap in the face to all AMERICANS when she states “they (the People) decided in the election” and “THEY (meaning Congress or the DEMOCRATS) will decide the honoring of the Oath of Office”…..translation to me is IF CONGRESS DOESN’T AGREE WITH THE PEOLE WHO ELECTED SOMEONE; CONGRESS CAN OUST THAT PERSON….BECAUSE THAT ELECTED PERSON DOESN’T FOLLOW WHAT THE DEMOCRATS WANT”……..Now REALLY???? how about we oust Pelosi, Schumer and that “Infected Group” so WE THE PEOPLE can get on with straightening out AMERICA…..AND WE MUST DO IT NOW……!!!!!
