Ronan Farrow‘s book, which sheds light on the Harvey Weinstein scandal, was apparently so popular that dozens of possible jurors in the disgraced movie mogul’s trial were dismissed for having already read about his alleged crimes.

Weinstein was prosecuted on new sex crime charges in Los Angeles earlier this week, just as his trial on different rape and sexual assault charges in New York was poised to get underway, prosecutors announced.

The Hollywood producer has actually been charged with raping one lady and sexually assaulting another in separate occurrences over a two-day period in 2013, Los Angeles County District Lawyer Jackie Lacey said in a press release.

Nevertheless, as a brand-new jury was being created, Farrow was informed that his own reporting has contributed at the same time.

” Source associated with Weinstein trial informs me near 50 possible jurors have been sent out home since they stated they ‘d read Catch and Kill,” Farrow tweeted about his best-selling book on Thursday.

Farrow added, “Preferably you don’t desire jurors to have actually been exposed to a lot of previous reporting, nevertheless reasonable. Suggestion of how fraught jury choice is in high profile cases.”

” Capture and Eliminate” exposed the uphill struggle Farrow faced breaking his Weinstein story at NBC News, where he alleged editors spiked his story as an attempt to shield its then-star anchor Matt Lauer, another prominent figure swept up in the #MeToo movement.

Farrow ended up publishing his Weinstein reporting in The New Yorker.
