Ronan Farrow has responded to an article seeking to point out perceived “weaknesses” in his work as an investigative journalist.
The Pulitzer-winning reporter, who was one of three journalists to report on the allegations against Harvey Weinstein in October 2017, is standing by his work.
Smith questioned several aspects of Farrow’s past reporting, while also stating that Farrow “is not a fabulist” and “does not make things up”.
Farrow reacted in a Twitter thread on Monday, seeking to clarify several of the points raised by Smith.
He referenced a thread by NewYorker.com editor Michael Luo, in which Luo defends Farrow’s work and concludes: ”We are proud of @ronanfarrow’s reporting, and we stand by it.”
The New Yorker was the outlet that published Farrow’s reporting into the allegations against Weinstein in 2017.
Farrow himself tweeted at the end of his own thread: ”I stand by my reporting.”
Smith, in turn, has retweeted Farrow’s thread.
