There is an internal war brewing after it was claimed that Ronan Farrow has been banned by NBC News’ top exec, Andy Lack.

Farrow was booked on Rachel Maddow’s prime-time MSNBC show on Friday to discuss his story about Donald Trump’s alleged affair with former Playboy model Karen McDougal. But Farrow was bumped from the broadcast, and insiders said the decision was made by Lack, who is still fuming over claims that NBC killed Farrow’s story on Harvey Weinstein, which went on to become a New Yorker blockbuster.

NBC CMCSA, -0.72% representatives didn’t comment, but other insiders insist Farrow, who hosted “Ronan Farrow Daily” on MSNBC in 2014-15, was bumped because of breaking Russia indictment news.
