The current president of MSNBC waved around a zoomed-in photo of the vagina of popular TV personality Maria Menounos at a staff meeting, a new book from journalist Ronan Farrow reveals.

According to sources in Farrow’s new book, “Catch and Kill,” MSNBC head Phil Griffin was known for his crass remarks. At a staff meeting, a source detailed that a “smirking” Griffin once “waved around a printed page bearing a zoomed-in image” of Menounos’ vagina — the former “Access Hollywood” host apparently suffered a wardrobe malfunction while wearing a bikini in public.

“Would you look at that?” Griffin reportedly said of the photo, as he “exhaled hard.”

“Not bad, not bad,” he added.

Journalist Yashar Ali obtained the troubling excerpt from “Catch and Kill” and posted it to social media on Saturday.

According to Page Six, “Farrow also claimed that coworkers described Griffin as a crude boss and that while he was still a senior producer at ‘Nightly News’ in the 1990s, once pressured female colleagues to go to a peep show in Times Square, New York magazine said.”

“Catch and Kill” details a slew of trouble for NBC Universal News Group outside of Griffin’s alleged unsavory actions.

According to another excerpt obtained by Ali, NBC News president Noah Oppenheim shrugged off audio captured by model Ambra Gutierrez of Harvey Weinstein admitting to sexual assault and pressuring the model. 

“Ambra Gutierrez captured Harvey Weinstein on tape admitting to sexual assault. According to [Ronan Farrow]‘s new book, when he played this audio for NBC News president Noah Oppenheim, Noah reacted by saying: ‘Eh…I mean, I don’t know what it proves,'” Ali posted. 

Ali added, “Another thing NBC News president Noah Oppenheim said to [Ronan Farrow] (according to Ronan’s book) after listening to this audio was: ‘He’s trying to get rid of her. People say a lot of things when they’re trying to get rid of a girl like that.’”

Moreover, Farrow uncovered a rape allegation against former NBC “Today” host Matt Lauer.

Brooke Nevils, a former NBC News employee, said she was anally raped by Lauer in 2014 while covering the Sochi Olympics, as accusation Lauer has fiercely denied.

The Daily Wire reported:

After socializing at a hotel bar with Lauer and then-“Today” anchor Meredith Vieira, Nevils said she went to Lauer’s room to get back her press credentials, which she said were taken by Lauer as a joke. She then returned to his room a second time upon his invite, when the alleged rape took place.

“Once she was in his hotel room, Nevils alleges, Lauer — who was wearing a T-shirt and boxers — pushed her against the door and kissed her. He then pushed her onto the bed, ‘flipping her over, asking if she liked anal sex,’ Farrow writes. ‘She said that she declined several times,’” the Variety report said.

Nevils claims she “was in the midst of telling him she wasn’t interested again when he ‘just did it,’” Farrow wrote in his book “Catch and Kill.”

“Lauer, she said, didn’t use lubricant. The encounter was excruciatingly painful. ‘It hurt so bad. I remember thinking, Is this normal?’ She told me she stopped saying no, but wept silently into a pillow,” the book claimed.

“It was nonconsensual in the sense that I was too drunk to consent,” the former NBC employee told Farrow. “It was nonconsensual in that I said, multiple times, that I didn’t want to have anal sex.”

Nevils said she had sexual interactions with Lauer after the alleged rape, some of which she initiated.

Farrow is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist best know for his reporting into the alleged rampant sexual misconduct from Democrat megadonor and Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.
