NBC News spiked Ronan Farrow’s explosive story about Harvey Weinstein’s sexual misconduct despite the fact that his reporting passed the network’s fact-checking and legal hurdles, the Huffington Post reported Wednesday evening.The piece, co-authored by freelancer Yashar Ali and HuffPost Editor-in-Chief Lydia Polgreen, quoted 12 sources “with direct knowledge of the reporting behind Farrow’s story” all of whom were only willing to speak anonymously.According to Ali and Polgreen, Farrow was ordered to abandon the project, paid camera crews out of his own pocket and ultimately won permission to take it to another outlet — which is how The New Yorker wound up publishing his incendiary story on Tuesday.

Mexico’s early goal seals 1-0 Gold Cup win over HondurasA goal by Rodolfo Pizarro just over three minutes into the game was all the offense Mexico could muster, but it was enough for a 1-0 victory over Honduras on Thursday night in the quarterfinals of the CONCACAF Gold Cup in Glendale, Ariz.The victory in front of 37,404 at University of Phoenix Stadium, moved Mexico into a semifinal match against Jamaica in the Rose Bowl on Sunday.Mexico and Jamaica played to a 0-0 draw this year in the Gold Cup group stage.The Mexican team was without several top players who had played in the recent Confederations Cup in Russia.Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio said Wednesday that he had planned to bring some of those players to the Gold Cup but was thwarted by “our bosses and their clubs.”Two slick passes inside the penalty area led to Mexico’s goal in the fourth minute.Jamaica got an early goal from Shaun Francis and led the rest of the way, holding off Canada in the quarterfinals of the CONCACAF Gold Cup.Canada’s David Junior Hoilett scored on a soaring shot from well beyond the penalty area in the 61st minute.Major League Soccer will begin using video review for all matches on Aug. 5.All matches will now include a video assistant referee, who will be allowed to review video to confirm calls in four situations: goals, penalty decisions, direct red cards and cases of mistaken identity.Video review was also on trial during the recent Confederations Cup in Russia and FIFA President Gianni Infantino hopes it can be fast-tracked for approval for the 2018 World Cup.
- That Time Harvey Weinstein, Woody Allen and Donald Trump Worked Together

When it was released nearly two decades ago, Woody Allen’s “Celebrity” was most notable for its exploration of the power of fame, an unlikely portrayal of a very average man who is a magnet for beautiful women. In retrospect, the film is also fascinating for a brief scene that brings together Allen, Harvey Weinstein, and Donald Trump — three of the most famous modern-day men to be accused of sexual misconduct.Their paths crossed in a scene in the Allen-directed film, distributed by Weinstein’s Miramax, in which Trump plays himself. Allen had already survived a scandal by the time “Celebrity” hit screens in 1998.Dylan Farrow, Allen’s adopted daughter, says he sexually assaulted her in 1992, when she was 7 years old.
